Tips and skincare routine products to cure acne
People with oily or combination skin can find that they are more prone to breakouts, irritation and acne.
Various factors cause an extra production of oil called “sebum” to protect your skin from irritation and dryness. However, the overproduction of sebum may clog your pores and create pimples.

Tips and skincare product recommendations
Tips 1: Be very mindful when choosing your cosmetic products
Always look for oil free and chemical free skincare products containing a high level of antioxidant and fruit acids. These will help to cure and heal your face. It is very important to read products labels carefully before applying to your face.
Tips 2: cleanse your face twice a day with gentle cleanser
It is preferable that your cleanser does not contain any soap allowing you to cleanse your face 2 to 3 times a day without damaging your skin.
It is recommended to clean your skin:
- every morning and night to get rid of any impurity that may enter, clog your pores and create pimples.
- after exercising. It is very important to clean your face straight after exercising to remove all the impurities eliminated by your body through your pores.
