AM Skincare Routine For Acne-Prone Skin

How we begin our day says a lot about acne treatment. It’s essential to follow a daytime skincare routine before you step out. Here’s an extensive AM skincare routine, which you should swear by. 

  • Cleanse
  • Cleansing your skin should be the first step in every regimen regardless of skin type. You need a gentle cleanser that can instantly refresh your skin without stripping off the natural oil. Mama Cica Pore Clearing Exfoliating Face Wash is a cream-based cleanser that draws out oil and dirt while keeping your skin soft and oil-free. Wait, yes, it helps to clear your acne, blemishes and even heals irritated skin.

  • Tone + Hydrate
  • To improve your skin hydration levels and prevent dehydration, we suggest adding a step of using a facial essence powered with active ingredients to refine pores, balance skin pH levels and prep your skin well. Using an essence before applying a serum or moisturizer helps the skin absorb all the nutrients better and adds a nice dewy soft glow to your complexion. Pick an essence based on your skin types: we have the super hydrating Mon Cherry Intense Brightening Essence enriched with acne-fighting ingredients like grapefruit pearl and licorice root extract to soothe damaged skin, heal breakouts and protect skin from redness and irritation. It works well for acne-prone and dry, irritated skin too while the Mama Cica Intense Oil Control Essence infused with Korean ingredients like ginseng, cica and lotus root extracts works well for blotchy, oily and combination skin.

  • Moisturize 
  • Most of us who deal with acne prone skin tend to skip on their moisturizers as we think it makes your skin look greasy and will clog the pores. But hey your skin needs a lightweight, gel based moisturizer that suits your skin type. Look for anti-inflammatory ingredients like tea tree, salicylic acid, aloe vera, Korean ginseng as they are best suited for acne-prone skin. Why invest in a regular moisturizer when we have got you an acne expert at hand? Hands down,  Chialeader Oil Control Moisturizer is a pro infused with chia seed, cactus extracts and bamboo water that soothes itchy skin in one go. Targets acne, this gel-based moisturizer keeps your pores clean and excess sebum in control. Isn't that what your skin needs?

  • SPF 
  • If you skip on your sunscreen, you’ll regret it later! No AM skincare routine is complete without sunscreen and applying it every single day is non-negotiable. We know oftentimes you tend to skip on your SPF and some of us think that it can clog pores and eventually lead to skin breakouts. Look for gel-based and lightweight sunscreens as they work best for the summer season. Bravocado SPF 50+ PA++++ Sunscreen Gel, a lightweight, non-sticky and gel-based sunscreen comes packed with soothing avocado, rice water and moringa extracts to nourish and protect your skin from UV rays. Hey, it does not leave a white cast after application (brownie points!).
