Skin Care for Acne-prone Skin
What Dermatologists Recommend

Skin care can be just as important as the treatment(s) you use to clear your acne. Proper skin care can reduce possible side effects from prescription medications. It can make a product that you can buy without a prescription more effective. Proper skin care can even help you prevent new breakouts once your skin clears.

Dermatologists recommend gently cleansing acne-prone skin twice daily. Never scrub the skin. This tends to make acne worse.
