Exfoliation – Acne skincare treatment

In my earlier post I was talking about cleansing products for acne skincare out of 4 methods of acne skincare treatments. In this blog, let us talk about the second method which is exfoliation. Most women take this exfoliation process very lightly and often skip it during their skincare routine. However, exfoliation process removes the dead cells on your skin to rejuvenate your body cells and make them healthy and shiny. This is one of the main reasons for men to have healthy and glowing skin as they perform exfoliation while shaving their beard.

There are different methods to perform exfoliation for acne skincare. The first method is to use a gentle scrub. This gentle scrub would remove the dead cells from the skin to keep the skin glowing. One thing to take care while scrubbing is purchasing of a scrub with tiny grains. If you use cheaper ones to save money, the larger grains on that scrub can cause damage to your skin, increasing your woes big time.

Another method is to go for a retinoid treatment. These retinoid elements clear the dead cells from the skin and make the skin glowing and healthy. They even strengthen the structural fiber of the cell. Few people use toners to remove the clogged dirt and moisture from the cells. However, this can be easily done with a cleanser in a better fashion. You can try exfoliation and see the difference it makes on your skin within a short period.

Acne or acne vulgaris is something which most people would experience at some point of time in their life. If you are one among those frustrated people who have used various creams and lotions to combat acne in vain, then you might have failed to understand the basic principles of acne skincare. There is a proper system to be used to treat acne in an effective manner. You need to choose the best acne treatment right from choosing the moisturizers and cleansers to using sun screen lotions. Here are 4 tips for acne skincare.

  •  Using the right cleansers
  •  Exfoliation tips
  •  Moisturizing solutions
  •  Applying sunscreen lotions

Let me talk about the cleansers to be used for your acne skincare in this post. The first and foremost aspect to consider is the selection of the right cleansers. Not all cleansers suit your skin. Understand the nature of your skin first. Be it oily, dry or medium skin, there is a cleanser for each skin type. Try different products and determine which the one your skin responds to is. You can purchase a cleanser of your choice at your nearest drug store and use them regularly. Apply the cream and wipe it off with cotton. Do not use water.

In addition you can use hot water to remove clogged dirt from the pores before applying the cleanser. Do not use water which is too hot or too cold. However, make sure not to use cleansers every day as they can dry out your skin.
