You were so happy, looking forward to attending the wedding party. The wedding was going to be a glam ceremony. You were so ready with your new dresses, planning your head-turning looks. Then it hit you, OMG, what is that ominous thing on your cheek? Is that, acne? No, and then you wake up. But guess what? Your nightmare can turn real pretty quickly. Especially if you have dehydrated dry skin, this will quickly become a hostile situation. The point we are trying to make here is dehydrated, and acne-prone skin can potentially ruin your happy moments. Not only do they create an unpleasant appearance but also having dehydrated, acne-prone may lead to skin diseases. This is why you must take notice if your skin is dehydrated and acne-prone.
Let’s not go down with a fight. We will help you buckle up with effective skincare for your dehydrated and acne-prone skin. But first, know your enemy and plan your action just for that. Let us divide and rule. We will break your dehydrated acne-prone skincare regimen into two halves: a morning routine and a nighttime routine.
What is acne?
When we say acne, we mean pimple-like bumps due to clogged pores and excess oil secretion. Sometimes they appear on the skin’s surface as blackheads and whiteheads. Their inflammatory counterparts are far worse.
Your Ideal skincare Regimen for Dehydrated, Acne-prone Skin
Isn’t it the oily skin that always causes acne? Well, it is true, but here lies the twist. Did you know that people with dry skin can also experience acne? The problem usually occurs because they might use products with the wrong ingredients. See, just like you, your skin type is unique. Using the wrong products for your skin will cause your skin to suffer from adverse effects. Dehydrated skin, in extreme situations, can get really flaky and scaly. It can also cause the skin to be dull, with dark under-eye circles, and result in unpleasant breakouts.
When your skin is easily prone to breakouts, you must be careful about the ingredients you are putting on it. The first part of your skincare is cleansing. Choose an acne cleanser with Salicyclic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Tea tree oil is a powerful agent for acne-prone skin, among natural ingredients. You can try Lotus Herbals Tea Tree & Cinnamon Anti-Acne Oil Control Face Wash. This mild facewash has antimicrobial properties and is enriched with the goodness of tea tree oil, which is very effective for acne-prone skin. It gently removes the dirt, oil, and dead skin cells piled up on your skin, which makes your skin easily prone to acne. Hence, investing in this product would be a wise idea.
For toning, natural toners are the best. Green tea can work miracles as it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Otherwise, you can choose Lotus Herbal Cucumber face toner. This gentle, alcohol-free toner will soothe your skin without making it dry.
Dehydrated acne-prone skin needs moisturizer just like normal skin. Even though you have oily skin, it will go on oil secretion overdrive without proper moisturizer. You can choose gel-textured moisturizers that contain hyaluronic acid. If you want to try out Lotus Herbals, WHITEGLOW Skin brightening Gel Cream SPF 25 PA+++ can be a good option. Crafted from mulberry, saxifrage, and grape extracts, this product is particularly good for nourishing the skin. With fast absorption, it blends into the skin, improves skin texture, and prevents skin darkening. This gel cream is your magic potion for your dehydrated skin.
Sunscreen is essential to your skincare, no matter the skin type. So this is something that you just cannot skip. To fight acne, UV gel sunscreens are a good option. You can check out Lotus Safe Sun Sports Super-Stay Sunscreen SPF 70 PA+++ – Lotus Herbals and Safe Sun UV Shield Whitening Gel Cream SPF 50 PA+++. SPF products are a must-have for your skincare. They protect your skin from harmful sun rays and prevent your skin from getting sunburns. They also help you maintain your skin tone.
You need to cleanse your face properly because your skin goes through a lot during those long schedules daily. Use a gentle pore-cleansing facewash. Lotus Herbals NEEMWASH Neem & Clove Ultra-Purifying Face Wash is a really good option for your skin. It cleans out excess oil and grimes from your skin without making it dry. This face wash is great for acne-prone skin and performs exceptionally well for eczema-prone skin. It makes your skin clear and radiant.
Hydration should be your last step of the day. A proper gel-textured or moisturizing lotion would be suitable for your skin. For hydration, Lotus Herbals NUTRAMOIST Skin Renewal Daily Moisturising Cream SPF-25 is a really good option for daily use. Infused with the goodness of cherry and black plum, this cream has intense moisturising properties. This cream will give you soft skin with a radiant look.
Acne-prone and dehydrated skin demands more than just your occasional attention and instant solution. But if this condition always finds a way to come back, there might be other underlying causes. Otherwise, a good diet and our suggested skincare routine should be enough to bid adieu to this problem.
