Skincare Myth #1- "Only people with oily skin get acne."

Acne knows no skin type! 

Acne is a common skin condition that can affect anyone, regardless of their skin type. While it's true that oily skin tends to be more prone to acne, it doesn't mean that those with other skin types are exempt.

Dry skin can also experience breakouts due to factors such as clogged pores, dead skin cell buildup, or even using heavy moisturizers that don't suit your skin.

Even people with normal or combination skin can encounter acne breakouts. Hormonal changes, stress, diet, and genetics play significant roles in acne development, irrespective of skin type.

The good news is that proper skincare practices can help prevent and manage acne, regardless of your skin type. Here are some essential tips:

  1. Cleanse gently: Use a mild cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and impurities without stripping your skin's natural moisture.
  2. Exfoliate wisely: Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. Opt for gentle exfoliants suitable for your skin type.
  3. Moisturise effectively: Choose non-comedogenic moisturisers that hydrate your skin without clogging pores. Yes, even oily skin needs hydration!
  4. Don't skip sunscreen: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Look for oil-free or lightweight options.

Remember, everyone's skin is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. If you're struggling with acne, consider consulting a dermatologist for personalized advice and treatment options.
