Red Marks Acne - Tips To Minimize

Acne and the red marks it leaves on the skin are the number one reason that people visit the dermatologist's office. Red facial marks and acne aren't a medical emergency and be treated fairly easily, but people still spend millions on visits to specialists. There are thankfully some easy solutions to this all too common problem.

For people suffering from red marks acne, it is critical that they use the correct type of skin cleanser product. They should insure that only non-comedogenic (non-irritating) cleansers should be bought. The most effective regimen is to wash your face with the cleanser at least twice a day, once in the morning and again before turning in for the night. If they wear makeup, it should be completely removed as well during the cleansing process.

Second, you will want to develop a basic skin care regimen to treat your red marks acne. This involves cleansing twice daily, as we already noted, as well as applying the properly balanced moisturizer to your skin after cleansing. Moisturizers are available in formulas for oily, dry, or combination skin types, so make sure to buy the correct one! Remember, not everyone with acne has oily skin.

Next, only use makeup products that are formulated for people with skin problems. A good choice is often mineral-based makeup, which is generally non-comedogenic and non-allergenic. Apply your makeup lightly so that your skin can "breathe" properly, and always make sure to moisturize before makeup application, as well as to remove it completely and cleanse your skin well at night. Remember, the smallest amount of makeup worn as infrequently as possible is the best choice to reduce acne.

Finally, a good option for people with pimples is a special skin care serum which contains anti-inflammatory agents. Anti-inflammatories damp down the immune response of your skin to irritants, making it look and feel better and reducing redness. You may also choose to use a moisturizer with anti-inflammatory agents built right in.

If you are dealing with long-term red-marks type of acne, or if you only have some pimples, you really need to have a good idea about taking care of your skin, including knowing what products will help. Studies have shown that most folks can get great results without spending a fortune.
