When it comes to persistent acne, it can feel like you’ve tried everything to clear up your skin. From dermatologist-recommended products to skincare fads and all the products in between, you’ve likely tried them all at some point. When nothing seems to work, it’s easy to feel hopeless and seriously insecure about your skin’s appearance. So, what’s the next step? If you’re tired of struggling with pesky breakouts, read on for some real-life tips to outsmart stubborn acne.
Make Sure Your Products are Non-Comedogenic
Using the wrong products is a common problem among breakout-prone individuals. If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, it is essential to choose products that are non-comedogenic. Non-comedogenic products are specifically formulated with ingredients that won’t clog your pores; for people who experience breakouts, unknowingly choosing a product that isn’t non-comedogenic can worsen your skin rather than improve it. At Acne Intelligence, we work with a team of scientists to ensure each and every one of our products is non-comedogenic; from sensitive-skin creams to heavy-duty treatments, we are driven to create products that work for you, not against you.
Give Your Treatment Some Time
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you should give new treatments at least 4 weeks to work their magic. 80% of Acne Intelligence users begin to see improvement in just 3 weeks, but no reliable acne product is going to magically clear up your skin overnight. Treatments that work take time, and it is important to practice patience with your skincare routine. Consistency is key, and to see your routine take effect you need to wash and moisturize your face daily and use your acne treatments as recommended. Be patient, be consistent, and update your Acne Intelligence app weekly (don’t worry; we’ll remind you!). You can trust our cutting edge diagnostic technology will assess when to adjust your routine if a product isn’t working optimally for you.
Consider Making Lifestyle Changes
If you’ve truly tried every expert-recommended skincare regimen in the book, it may be time to take a step back and examine your other lifestyle choices. Are you eating lots of oily or sugary foods? How often do you drink water? Are you staying active? Taking care of your skin means taking care of your body, and often a poor diet or workout routine can contribute to poor skin health. Consider making some lifestyle changes if you notice yourself making unhealthy choices, and you may see your stubborn acne start to improve.
