How to Wash Acne-prone Skin
Dermatologists recommend the following for their patients who have acne or acne-prone skin:
Limit washing to twice a day – and after perspiring
Once in the morning and once at night as well as after perspiring heavily should be the limit. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, can make acne worse, so the skin should be gently cleansed as quickly as possible after perspiring.
Use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser
Wash the face and other acne-prone areas with a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser that does not contain alcohol.
Use your fingertips
Apply the cleanser and wash with your fingertips. This reduces skin irritation. Using a washcloth, mesh sponge, or anything else can irritate the skin and lead to breakouts.
Never scrub your skin
Scrubbing the skin does not clear acne. In fact, scrubbing irritates the skin and can make acne worse.
Rinse with lukewarm water
Be sure to thoroughly rinse away the cleanser with lukewarm, not hot, water.
If you have oily hair, shampoo daily
