Acne-Prone Skin के लिए सबसे अच्छा Moisturizer| Best Moisturizer For Acne-Prone Skin| ClearSkin, Pune


Hello, I’m Dr. Dhananjay Chavan, cosmetic
dermatologist, and Hair Transplant Surgeon, Clear
Skin and Hair MD, Pune. Whatever your skin type, it is very important
to moisturise your skin. In a skin care routine, moisturising is a
very important step. But does acne prone skin also need a moisturiser? If yes, which moisturiser is ideal for acne
prone skin? Today, we’ll discuss exactly this! See, moisturiser is very beneficial for your
skin. It locks the moisture in your skin and prevents
skin from drying. Especially during winters, when your skin
starts getting very dry. It gets very cold outside and warmer at home. As a result, the moisture in your skin starts
evaporating. So then it becomes essential to keep your
skin hydrated and moisturised. A moisturiser can make your skin soft and
smooth. .
In fact, it can even help reduce signs of ageing which then helps the skin look young
and healthy. However, a lot of people think that oily or
acne prone skin doesn’t need moisturiser. So, friends, this is not the case. See, all our skin has sebaceous glands. But these glands are more active in oily skin. This excess sebum, along with dirt and dead
skin cells, clog the skin pores leading to acne
breakouts. Now in this case, it is important to control
the skin’s excess oil. But oily or acne prone skin also needs basic
moisturiser or hydration. If oil or sebum becomes a bit too less in
oily skin, then it starts becoming dry. Then, our skin
sends a signal to the oil glands to prepare extra oil, which makes the skin even more
oily. Then because of this, your pores get clogged
and acne breakouts increase. This is the body’s natural bio-feedback
mechanism. To prevent this, it is important to apply
on oily and acne prone skin the right moisturiser that
suits the skin. Conversely, if you’re taking OTC treatment
for acne or pimples, or using topical Acne medication, then your skin becomes dry. As a result, there can also be irritation
or inflammation on the skin. This is why acne prone skin needs moisturiser. But while choosing a moisturiser for acne
prone skin, it is important to consider some factors. You should understand your skin type and skin
tendency and choose the right product accordingly. Now you must be wondering, how to choose moisturiser
for acne prone skin? And which ingredients are to be seen while
buying moisturiser? While buying moisturiser, see its texture
and formulation. There are a lot of moisturisers available
in the market which are of various forms. From the lightest to the heaviest forms of
moisturisers are available. Moisturisers like gels, lotions, creams or
ointments can be found. This is why, while buying a moisturiser, you
have to keep in mind its properties. If your skin is acne prone, then always use
oil-free moisturiser for your skin. You can also use gel or light lotion. If your skin is oily, then do not use cream,
heavy lotion or ointment. If you use just any moisturiser product, then
your skin pores can get clogged and your acne might increase. This is why you should only use non-comedogenic
oil-free products for your skin. At the time of moisturiser, check for the
labels non-comedogenic or oil-free. The moisturisers containing hyaluronic acid
can keep your skin well moisturised. In fact, even Dimethicone can be a moisturiser
for oily skin. Not only does Dimethicone moisturise the skin,
but also gives a matt finish to the skin controlling greasiness and shine of the skin. And also, you can use such moisturisers that
contain exfoliating agents like lactic acid, glycolic
acid, and salicylic acid, which improve cell turnover, and control sebum and oil secretion. If your skin is acne prone, then avoid ingredients
like paraffin and cocoa butter. Other than this, you can use humectants like
glycerine, lactic acid, urea, hyaluronic acid, and
alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). These are just like moisturisers. These absorb and lock moisture in your skin. In fact, heavy oils are not present in humectants. This is why these can be used for all skin
types. For oily skin, combination and acne-prone
skin, these prove to be very beneficial. You can also use ceramides for acne prone
skin. These ceramides prove to be very effective
for normal and combination skin types. See, for oily or acne prone skin, it is important
to use a water-based moisturiser. In fact, for such skin you can use lotions. If your skin is oily, or acne-prone, then
do not use cream-based, thick moisturisers. See the ingredients of the products,
which skin type they are made for, are they dermatologically tested or not, you need to
read all this important information. Along with this, you have to follow a healthy
skincare routine and some tips. During the day, you have to wash your skin
with an oil-free cleanser at least two times. Just after cleansing the skin, apply an oil-free
moisturiser. If possible, use moisturiser after bathing
when the body is still damp. Moisturiser spreads nicely on damp skin and
gets absorbed. While applying moisturiser, massage your skin
lightly, apply gently and let it absorb well. During the day, apply moisturiser at least
two times. Even before sleeping in the night, apply moisturiser. Our skin starts renewing during the night. Applying moisturiser in the night keeps your
skin hydrated and makes it soft, smooth and healthy the next day. The most important thing is that before using
any moisturiser, take a patch test on the skin, i.e.
behind the ear or on the wrist. If you see any allergic reaction within 24
hours, then don’t use that moisturiser. If you do not see any reaction, then you can
use that moisturiser. Oily skin is shiny. It is greasy in appearance. Large pores are visible in oily skin. This is why if your skin is oily and sensitive,
then use such a moisturiser that makes your skin
smooth, maintains moisture and keeps your skin healthy and hydrated, and also doesn’t
make it look greasy. If your skin is oily, then stay far away from
petroleum products. These seal the moisture but also clog the
pores. Moreover, they are not good for sensitive
skin. So if you suffer from oily and sensitive skin,
then it’s better to avoid them. I hope this video helped you understand how
to choose the right moisturiser for acne prone skin. If you have any other queries, you can visit
our website www.clearskin.in. Even Acne prone skin needs moisturising and
hydration. If your skin is acne prone, then use products
according to skin type. Exfoliate the skin once a week. Along with moisturiser, also use a broad-spectrum
sunscreen with SPF 30. Follow a healthy skincare routine. All the best! Thank you!
