Keep reading to find out.

How Can You Manage Acne Prone Dry Skin?

  • Choose a gentle cleanser: Look for a gentle, hydrating cleanser that doesn't strip your skin of its natural oils. Avoid using harsh or abrasive cleansers that can irritate and dry out your skin even more. Our Ultra Restore Cleanser is packed with aloe vera, cucumber and Japanese green tea to gently remove dirt and maintain hydration

  • Moisturize regularly: Apply a gentle, non-comedogenic moisturizer twice a day to keep your skin hydrated. Our Clear Fight Moisturizer is perfect for this with salicylic acid and niacinamide to fight acne and ceramides and glycerin to hydrate your skin.  Regular use of a hydrating serum is ideal to manage dry skin and further dehydration that can result from using acne treatments. We suggest that you layer our Peptide Quench Serum after applying acne treatments.

  • Use non-comedogenic products: Avoid using makeup and skincare products that contain oils or other comedogenic ingredients that can clog your pores and worsen your acne.

  • Spot-treat acne: Instead of applying acne treatments all over your face, spot-treat individual pimples with a targeted treatment that contains salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Our Clear Fight Serum contains 2 per cent Salicylic acid alongside Manuka Honey and glycerin to hydrate and soothe dry skin. 

  • Avoid over-exfoliating: Exfoliating can help to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, but over-exfoliating can further dry out your skin and worsen acne. Limit your exfoliation to once or twice a week, and use a gentle exfoliant.

  • Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out, which can improve the appearance and health of your skin.

Remember, it's important to be patient when managing acne with dry skin. It may take some trial and error to find the right products and routine that works for you. If your acne is severe or persistent, it's important to consult a dermatologist for personalized advice and treatment.
