Treatment and prevention
Maintaining a consistent skincare routine for acne prone skin is crucial.
Most treatments involve topical medications-creams, lotions or gels, which work very well in most cases if used correctly. If, however they are not successful, then your doctor may recommend oral medications, such as antibiotics.
It is also important to keep acne prone skin hydrated. Use a moisturiser that will both help rebalance your sebum production and keep your skin hydrated. It is also advised to use a moisturiser with an SPF to protect the skin as UVA and UVB rays can trigger acne.
Finally, it is important to note that treatments tend to take some time to show positive results. Therefore, Dermatologists recommend using products for up to 12 weeks to see real improvements.
