Clear skin: Why you need an acne routine

Clear skin: Why you need an acne routine

The first step to clearing blemishes and preventing acne is to adopt an anti-acne routine that includes gentle yet effective products with proven ingredients to keep your skin clear, healthy, and hydrated.

Acne can lead to more than just pimples. After all, strong acne treatments can leave skin red and scaly. And while a strong product can help clear up an acne blemish, the associated irritation can leave you wondering what's worse: the acne or the side effects of the treatment.

Minimize flare-ups by being consistent with your skincare routine – Choose a product that can address all of your skin concerns, such as dryness or acne marks, as well as your acne.
Take care of your skin day and night - and use products designed specifically for each time of day
To keep acne-prone skin clear, most dermatologists recommend committing to a comprehensive acne routine. A consistent, simple acne skin care routine can help minimize acne flare-ups and help reduce side effects from repeatedly starting and stopping treatment. By choosing the right products, you can not only deal with your acne, but you can reduce or prevent other problems like dryness, acne marks and more – while protecting your skin from the sun.

To keep your skin clear and comfortable, CeraVe recommends an easy but comprehensive acne skincare routine using products developed with dermatologists morning and night to help improve the appearance of your skin with minimal effort.

Cleansing should be the first step in any skin care regimen, regardless of skin type. For acne-prone skin, Face Fresh Beauty Face Wash with Benzoyl Peroxide is formulated to thoroughly dissolve impurities and excess oil while clearing acne and allowing your skin to heal. An effective first step in any acne routine, this cleanser, with three essential ceramides, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, helps maintain the skin's barrier.

Step 2: Moisturize + Protect
Like the cleanser, Face Fresh Fairness and Moisturizing Lotion contains three essential ceramides, hydrating hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to provide your skin with much-needed moisture throughout the day. Daily sun protection is essential for all skin types, including acne-prone skin. In fact, sunscreen is especially important when using exfoliating products to treat acne because removing the top layer of dead cells can make your skin more vulnerable to UV rays1. This lotion offers broad-spectrum SPF 30 sun protection and is non-comedogenic, so it won't clog your pores.

Use CeraVe Acne Cleansing Foam Cream once more in the evening to clear acne and blackheads, help prevent new acne from forming, and allow skin to heal.

Face Fresh Fairness L-Glutathione Ampoule will help smooth and improve the texture of your skin by reducing the appearance of acne scars, minimizing the appearance of pores and smoothing the surface of your skin. In addition to encapsulated retinol to help restore the skin's surface and licorice root extract, it also contains niacinamide and three essential ceramides to help restore the skin's barrier.

Step 3: Moisturize
Designed to provide your skin with much-needed non-comedogenic moisture throughout the night without clogging pores, Face Fresh Gold Plus Lotion contains three essential ceramides, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide.

With the right products and ingredients, you can help minimize acne flare-ups as well as the side effects associated with starting and stopping acne skin care. Consistent use of an anti-acne routine is the perfect way to get your skin back on track.
