6 Do’s and Don’ts of Acne Treatment: Easy Tips from Dermatologists


We are no strangers to acne breakouts as most of us have dealt with them at some point in our lives. Acne refers to the skin condition in which you get pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, papules or cysts on your face, back and chest. 

We understand that they are annoying and frustrating and you might be tempted to constantly touch them but that is the worst thing you can do. Want to know some dermatologist-approved acne care tips that will help you manage your acne stress-free? Read along as we share with you 6 do’s and don’t of acne treatments that you must know. 

  1. Do choose the right cleanser 

We cannot put enough emphasis on this. It is crucial that you choose a mild cleanser that will clean your face without aggravating your acne breakouts. Another important thing to remember is to not overdo it. 

Washing your face twice- once in the morning and once before you retire to bed is enough. We recommend that you use makeO skinnsi’s acne away foaming face wash which is specially formulated for acne-prone skin to get radiant and glowing skin. 

  1. Do invest in non- comedogenic products 

Non- comedogenic skin care products are nothing but skin care products that are oil free and won’t clog your skin pores. Your regular skin care products might sometimes be heavy for your acne-prone skin and can cause your skin to become greasy and further aggravate acne. 

Hence, you must add non-comedogenic products to your skincare ritual which are designed keeping in mind the needs of acne prone skin types. 

  1. Don’t use too many over-the-counter medications 

While over-the-counter topical creams, lotions and gels help to treat mild acne, it is not enough to treat severe cases of acne breakouts. Hence, we recommend that you visit a dermatologist if you feel that your acne is going out of control. 

Make sure that you seek advice from your dermatologist before applying any new over-the-counter anti-acne products. 

  1. Do give your skin time to breathe 

The worst thing you can do is layer too many anti-acne products on your face and not let your skin breathe. Make sure that you use not more than 1 or 2 products at a time on your face and allow your skin to adjust to them before you introduce any new skincare products. 

  1. Don’t change your anti-acne products too frequently 

We know it can be frustrating to deal with blemishes and acne breakouts and you simply want quick fixes but being patient is the key. Changing your anti-acne products every week will do you more harm than you can imagine. So, make sure that you give a new product a couple of weeks to work its magic before you switch on to the next anti-acne product you discover on the internet. 

  1. Don’t sleep with your makeup on

You must never sleep with your makeup on, especially if you have acne-prone skin as it will inevitably clog your pores and lead to acne breakouts. We recommend that you remove your makeup using a gentle cleanser and apply an anti-acne serum on targeted areas so that you wake up with glowing skin.
