Health Tip: Caring for Acne-Prone Skin
(HealthDay News) -- Skin that's prone to acne needs special care to help keep it smooth and clear.
The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions:
Wash your face with a cleanser designed for people with acne.
Look for cleansers that include salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.
Wash your face gently, avoiding pressure that may aggravate acne.
Never pick at acne or scrub skin vigorously.
Use a light, non-comedogenic moisturizer.
Choose an oil-free foundation if you wear makeup.
