Tips for Cleansing Acne Skin
If you keep skin free of dirt and excess oil- the thinking goes- perhaps your pores will never get clogged. But over-cleansing can cause acne by making your sebaceous glands produce more oil.
Forgo granulated cleaners. And avoid washcloths; they are abrasive and can accumulate bacteria if you reuses them. Instead, use a disposable cleansing cloth or facial sponge.
Facial scrubs are only bad on your skin with acne if you have large flares ups. The abrasion can cause spread of bacteria and more inflammation. Using a soft cornmeal mixed in your cleanser is a good choice.
