Protect yourself from acne in simple steps

Protect yourself from acne in simple steps

Use salycylic face wash and anti-acne masks to stay from acne in summer, say experts.

Alia Rizvi, Dermatologist at Me Clinic – Masters of Esthetics, and Megha Shah, a Cosmetologist, have rolled out basic pointers that can be easily incorporated in daily beauty regimens:

* Keep your face clean. Remove your make properly. You can use a salycylic face wash.

* Rinse your face once you get home after spending the day outside.

* Do not scrub. Over washing and scrubbing can cause skin irritation.

* Don’t touch your face too often. Or don’t lean on any surface. Here the face can get infected with bacteria.

* Try using brands or make-up which say on the label -non-comedogenic.

* Avoid the sun. It can increase the chance of an acne outbreak.

* You can use anti-acne masks once a week.

* Acne occurs because of hormonal imbalance, so your dermatologist might ask you to get your hormones tested.

* Dandruff is also one of the most common causes of acne on forehead or back. It’s important to use an anti-dandruff shampoo suggested by your dermatologist.

* Avoid wearing tight body hugging clothes if you have acne on the body.
