Even though acne is usually associated with oily skin, those with dry skin can experience breakouts too! Breakouts for drier skin are generally more manageable but they can be hard to deal with when many standard acne treatments are targeted specifically to oily skin types
Acne happens when the skin produces too much sebum, which leads to oil clogging the pores. When the pores become filled up with oil and dead skin—a blackhead or whitehead forms and becomes infected with bacteria.
Here's how you can prevent acne if you have dry skin:
1. Cleanse Twice a Day
Wash your face twice a day, but don’t strip it. Choose a milky-textured cleanser that is gentle and won’t strip the skin of its natural oils such as Kaleanser.
2. Try a Retinol (in Moderation)
Retinol works to unclog pores by sloughing away dead skin cells, helping pores stay clear.
Dream Capsule consists of Bakuchiol which is a 100% plant derived retinol alternative, that is greatly preferred by people who have sensitive skin.
3. AVOID Over-Exfoliating
Treat your skin gently! Avoid using face scrubbers like a loofah or mechanical face washers which may increase dryness and irritation.
4. Spot treatment
For dry skin, address pimples with a targeted treatment so as not to dry out the rest of the skin. Use it as needed!
