Let’s face it, blemishes don’t just happen in grade school. Whether it’s the first day of school or the first day of work, there’s always a new opportunity for stress-related breakouts. Follow these steps to heal teenage or adult acne!
Clean Skin is Clear Skin
A solid skin care routine is the best way to help keep blemishes at bay and when you have acne-prone skin the most important step is cleansing. One of the root causes behind blemishes are clogged pores. When excess oil combines with dead skin cells and other impurities—everything from makeup to pollution—it can congest your pores and subsequently cause acne to form. Cleansing with a salicylic acid cleanser can help to keep your pores—and your complexion—clear and Normaderm PhytoAction Daily Deep Cleansing Gel is a great bet. This cleansing gel is formulated with salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and micro-exfoliating LHA to help purify pores, eliminate excess sebum, and prevent new blemishes from forming.
Once you’ve washed away the impurities, you should always moisturize your skin. This may seem counterintuitive—if you have oily, acne-prone skin, wouldn’t moisturizing cause more oil and more breakouts? Au contraire! When those with oily skin types skip moisturizing, they run the risk of causing their sebaceous glands to overcompensate for what the glands assume is dehydration. In turn, you can start to produce even more oil than before—and with it more acne. After cleansing, reach for a lightweight moisturizer like Normaderm PhytoAction Acne Control Daily Moisturizer. This light hydrator not only moisturizes skin, but it also helps to minimize the look of pores and shine while reducing the appearance of blemishes. Formulated with salicylic acid and mineralizing thermal water from the French volcanoes, the moisturizer helps to keep skin hydrated and looking radiant!

I highly recommend Vichy’s acne treatment moisturizer to my patients who want a solution to clear acne while visibly improving skin tone and texture. Clinically tested and formulated with Maximum Strength 2% Salicylic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and 60% Vichy Volcanic Water, this product reduces acne blemishes and leaves skin feeling soothed and hydrated. I trust this gentle, yet effective formula even for my patients with sensitive skin.
Once or twice a week incorporate a detoxifying clay mask into your skin care routine. Reach for Vichy’s Mineral Pore Purifying Clay Mask. This mineral mask is formulated with two ultra-fine white clays and helps to get rid of any excess oil on the skin’s surface and to detoxify congested pores. After using you’ll notice clearer-looking, softer-feeling skin.
