Sometimes it can be as simple as making sure that you are using the right products at home. Moisturizers, sunscreens, and makeup can all contain ingredients that can clog the pores and ultimately lead to acne. Make sure that your products are oil-free and noncomedogenic. Some people are even sensitive to Dimethicone, a common ingredient that gives products their silky and desirable feel. You should use gentle cleansers initially but can often progress to more therapeutic ones that contain either glycolic or salicylic acid. An abundance of prescription topicals are available on the market and your dermatologist can work with you on the best combination of products to suit your skin type and your lifestyle. Finally, there are several procedures that can improve your acne. These include chemical peels, Hydrafacials, and light therapy.
