Acne cosmetica prevention

If you wish to steer clear of Acne cosmetica, the good news is that you can. Implementing simple changes in your skincare regime and daily routine can make a vast difference.

  • Switch to skincare and makeup products that are labelled as ‘non-comedogenic’
  • Avoid applying heavy moisturisers or oils
  • Apply hair pomades or oils at least 1inch below the roots or just to the ends. This will prevent it from travelling on to your scalp or hairline.
  • Cleanse daily using an oil-free gentle cleanser
  • Avoid wearing heavy makeup
  • Clean your brushes, applicators and other utensils after each use and do not lend them to others
  • Change your pillowcase at least every 3 days to avoid the spread of bacteria
