Acne isn’t always something you can say goodbye to so easily. Acne is becoming increasingly more common in adults, with up to 15 percent of women affected—and dry to oily skin can also have similar effects on your skin.
So what causes acne, exactly? When skin pores get clogged, usually by dead skin cells, oil cannot discharge and accumulates in the pore and under the skin, creating a whitehead or blackhead,” This is a perfect environment for the bacteria, Propionibacterium acnes, which then flourishes and causes inflammation, creating pimples.
If you have acne, you might want to press pause on the constant rotation of new products and stick to this DHC Medicated Acne Control Moisturizing Foaming Wash and Medicated Acne Control Moisture Gel on the daily to fight blemishes.
The Medicated Acne Control Moisturizing Foaming Wash should be the first step in your anti-acne skincare regimen. Formulated with dipotassium glycyrrhizinate, vitamin C derivative, whey, and botanical extracts, it helps clear pimples and blackheads while helping maintain your skin’s barrier. This is important because your skin's barrier acts as a shield to protect it against external aggressors. While many acne-fighting skin-care products can be quite drying, this one does just the opposite. The result? Skin that is left feeling ultra-hydrated and soothed without any flakiness in sight.
After washing your face with Foaming Wash, you’re going to want to follow up with the Medicated Acne Control Moisture Gel. This all-in-one gel contains stearyl glycyrrhetinate to prevent acne and maintaining skin's moisture balance that leaves skin calm and lustrous. Combines the functions of serum, toner and moisturizer to complete your skincare routine in a single step after the facial cleansing. The foaming wash and all-in-one gel together give you a recipe for skin that is smoother, hydrated and more equipped to get rid of acne blemishes and scars.
