Acne-prone skin, known as "acne vulgaris", is a common yet frustrating skin type to have. It's characterized by whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, redness, inflammation and irritation.
Skin that's acne-prone often has a shiny, greasy and unclean appearance. Large pores are also evident on the forehead, nose, chin, cheeks, neck, upper back and shoulders. Acne-prone skin is primary influenced by diet, the environment and can sometimes be irritated by cosmetics. Balancing your efforts with all of these factors in mind will help you (and your skin) live happily ever after.
Keeping the skin clean and controlling the skin's oil are both extremely important for those with acne prone skin. One of the easiest home remedies for acne-prone skin is a facial mask made with a mixture of grated apple and honey. Let the mask sit on your face for 10 minutes, then rinse it off in cold water. The handy mask works well to dry the skin and obstruct the pores. Apple and honey also provide the skin with a variety of vitamins and other nutrients to make it healthy.
On a daily basis, a simple way to let the skin breathe is to minimize the use of cosmetics. Also always keep skin moisturized with a water-based moisturizer after it has been cleaned.
