There are 4 grades of acne and each should be treated differently. Today I'm going to discuss the least severe type of acne; it's referred to as "Grade I." This type of acne announces his (acne is totally a dude) existence with a minimal display of blackheads sprinkled mainly over the nose, cheeks and chin; and just a few infected lesions. (Which are "zits" or "pimples." They're technically called "pustules.") If you're a combination skin type (oily on the nose cheeks and chin, drier everywhere else) you may suffer from Grade I (or have at some point in your life.)
Here's what to use to treat this skin condition:
Cleanse with a foaming gel cleanser, if you're not suffering from sensitized skin exfoliate with a scrub 2 times a week- max, spot treat the infected lesions after cleansing with a product containing either Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide these ingredients will dry up the lesion, always spray a toner before applying moisturizer or SPF. Moisturizer is very important when it comes to treating acne of all grades because if you're not using a moisturizer the skin will freak right out because it's too dry and automatically starts producing more oil. And as we all know, oil fuels acne causing more breakouts to occur.
Before I peace out for today here a few more tips to keep breakouts under control: wash your pillowcase often (once a week at least), try not to touch your face throughout the day, wash makeup brushes a coupla times a month and... this last one I can't stress enough: cleanse, tone and moisturize before you go to bed.
