The best skin care routine for any type of skin is one that you stick to every day. With that in mind, we’re going to keep this as simple as possible. Here is a three-step plan for the morning and a three-step plan for the evening to address acne-prone skin. We will conclude with a medi-spa treatment that will help support your at-home routine.

Your Three-Step Morning Skin Care Routine

Before you leave the house in the morning, here are the three essential steps to take for your skin.

  1. Wash Your Face – Don’t use bar soap! A gentle cleanser is best.

  2. Moisturize – The problem with acne is oil, not moisture. You don’t want to suck all of the moisture out of your skin, or the acne will be replaced by flaking, wrinkles, and other damage. Just be sure your moisturizer is not oily.

  3. Apply Sunscreen – Don’t leave the house without sunblock on your face. The sun’s rays are only going to make acne problems worse.

Your Three-Step Evening Skin Care Routine

You’re going to notice that it is pretty similar to the morning routine. We just change up the order and make one substitution (you don’t need sunscreen at night, of course).

  1. Wash Your Face – The same gentle cleanser from the morning is fine. Make sure you remove any makeup you had on during the day.

  2. Acne Treatment – This is the time to apply whatever treatment you are using to actively care for your acne.

  3. Moisturize – Most acne treatments dry out the skin, so be sure to moisturize afterward. Again, make sure the moisturizer is non-oily.

Medi-Spa Treatments to Support Your Skin Care Routine

Besides your daily skin care routine, you may need a little more help to keep acne under control. An acneic skin treatment may be just what you need. An anti-acne facial is safe, even for inflamed or irritated skin. It involves the use of a detoxifying masque and soothing corrective/protective products.
