Skincare for Acne-Prone Skin
September 09, 2022
Acne-prone skin is anything but easy to live with. From the red bumps and acne scars to the ongoing breakouts and skin irritation: It's all overwhelming!
If you have acne-prone skin, you need to be extra careful about the products you use on your skin. Even if something says it's an anti-acne skincare product, that doesn't necessarily mean it's formulated with nourishing ingredients.
Not sure where to begin? We're here to help.
Here’s how you can elevate your skincare routine to combat acne:
Start with a trusted cleaner
Never underestimate the power of a cleanser. A cleanser provides a fresh start to your skincare routine. It helps you eliminate dirt, grim, and any irritants that could be causing acne.
We recommend using a trusted cleanser at least once or twice daily for the best results. This will ensure you can effectively cleanse your pores and have a fresh face ready for the rest of your routine!
Go in with an exfoliant
As someone dealing with acne-prone skin, you probably hear more often than not to go easy on the exfoliants. While this is true, you shouldn’t ignore it altogether. You still need to exfoliate your skin to remove the dead skin cells and make room for new cells.
Try out a toner
A toner helps keep the natural oils on your face balanced. It’s also great for removing excess sebum, oil, and dirt from your pore. Since you have acne-prone skin, you’ll want to be careful with the types of ingredients you choose to put on your skin.
Some toners have intense ingredients, like witch hazel, that may be too harsh for your skin. We recommend using a toner with rosewater, tea oil, and other soothing ingredients.
Meet your new best friend: Our Rose Water Facial Toner Spray. This toner is made with Damask Rose Water and Oil and is designed to condition, tone, and keep your skin feeling fresh all day long! You can carry it in your purse or bag everywhere you go if you ever need an extra hydration boost.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
If you have acne and oily skin, it may not feel right to add a moisturizer into your routine. We get it! You don’t want to add fuel to the fire!
However, that’s not necessarily always the case! Many moisturizers are formulated to help reduce inflammation and keep your skin looking and feeling its best. When shopping for hydrating skincare products, look for formulas with ceramides, vitamin C, or retinol for the best results.
If you haven't had a chance to try our Dynamic Renewal Cream yet, you're in for a treat! This cream is expertly formulated with ceramides and an exclusive 33 Botanical Super Complex. It's designed to help hydrate your skin and help you maintain a healthy glow.

Add in the SPF
Whatever you do… never forget your SPF! Some active ingredients in anti-acne skincare products can leave your skin more sensitive to the sun and UV rays. With a zinc-based sunscreen, you can maintain your youthful glow and ensure your skin is happy, healthy, and hydrated all day.
Don’t skip the retinol
Retinol is the holy grail of the beauty industry. The anti-aging properties make it a must-have, no matter your skin type. Unlike regular skincare ingredients, retinol is designed to get under your skin. The ingredient penetrates the dermis and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
If you don't want to use a serum, consider our Retinol Advanced Moisture Cream. This formula provides a multi-action approach that works to reveal soft and supple skin. The retinol helps maintain firmness and elasticity, preserving your youthful glow.
