Creating the Right Skincare Routine for Acne
Rachel Lapidos of Well + Good spoke with Dr. Michele Green about creating the right skincare routine for acne.
Dr. Green notes that it’s important to make sure the product label says oil-free and non-comedogenic. “Non-comedogenic products are formulated in a way that avoids breakouts or clogs pores” and to avoid anything too aggressive or abrasive, which can dry the skin. She also talks about how coconut oil, almond oil, shea butter, and mineral oil are potential pore-clogging ingredients. Most important of all “always give your skin enough time to adjust to your skin-care routine, as it takes a few weeks to see results,” says Dr. Green.
