mild acne treatment

Dear Patient

This skin condition is mild acne vulgaris combined with post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) which are the dark marks.

Your treatment should therefore begin with controlling the acne since if you do not control it, you will be doing zero work as the new acne pimples will continue leaving more dark marks.

Mild Acne Treatment

Use an acne cleanser in the morning

Use a cleanser which contains an acne treatment ingredient like benzoyl peroxide to wash your face in the morning. Benzoyl peroxide is important for mild acne treatment because it helps control the bacteria and reduces inflammation. You can use Clean and Clear Acne Cleanser  or any other cleanser with benzoyl peroxide.

Use an acne moisturizer in the morning

Use a moisturizer which contains an acne treatment ingredient like salicylic acid in the morning after cleansing your face. Salicylic acid is important for mild acne treatment since it penetrates into the pores and reduces their clogging. You can use Clean and Clear Oil Free Moisturizer or any other moisturizer with salicylic acid.

Use an acne cleanser at night

Use an acne cleanser to wash your face at night like Clean and Clear Acne Cleanser  .

Use a retinol at night

Apply a product that contains  retinol to your skin at night after cleansing it night since they acne by unplugging the skin pores. For example, you can use Amara Organics Retinol 2.5% Serum.

Adopt an Acne-Free Lifestyle

Adopt an acne-free lifestyle by looking into the common causes of acne in men which include:

*Smoking – Join a smoking cessation program if you smoke cigarettes

*Using oily skin and hair care products – use non-comedogenic ones

*Medications – consult your doctor if you are on any medications to find out if they are contributing to acne

*Diet – eat low glycemic index foods like whole grain bread, spinach, and tomatoes. To learn more read How to Treat Acne at Home.

Causes of acne in men

Acne Marks Treatment

After the acne has cleared you can now begin with the following measures to reduce the dark marks (PIH):

Use an Exfoliating Moisturizer

Use an exfoliating moisturizer that contains AHASs or BHAs which will loosen the glue between the dead cells on the surface so that they fall off and reveal the brighter skin below. You can use Clean and Clear Oil Free Moisturizer or any other moisturizer which contains salicylic acid.

Use Sunscreen Daily

Apply sunscreen each day to prevent the dark marks from darkening after applying the acne moisturizer. For example, you can use EltaMD SPF 46 Sunscreen or any other sunscreen which is non-comedogenic (will not clog your pores).
