I have Acne-Prone Skin, what should I do?

Pimples and Acne can be annoying and may even affect your self-confidence. But worry no more! Let me guide your journey to beautiful skin!

If you have light to moderate pimple or acne which is caused by pimple-causing bacteria, then the Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System may be of great help. The regimen contains natural salicylic acid which works well in combating pimples. It  gently exfoliates your skin and unclogs the pores.

Salicylic acid is known for clogged pores, whiteheads, blackheads and light to moderate pimple and not cystic acne. For this extreme skin concern, you may want to refer to both your dermatologist and OB-Gyne for better treatment.

Normally, we follow the 5 essential steps to healthy skin but I took the liberty to customize few steps to maximize the result. 

Step 1 Wash your hands

Use antibacterial soap to kill bacterias that are on your hands. Do this every time you wash your face. 

Step 2 Targeted Cleansing

Using a cotton ball, wet the area of your face with pimples. Put some cleanser on a new cotton ball and gently rub the on top of each individual pimple. Do not apply this on your whole face to avoid contamination.

Get another cotton ball after cleaning each pimple, wet it the cotton ball with water and gently rinse the tip each pimples. Throw the cotton balls and wash your hands. 

Step 3 Overall Cleansing

Now that each pimple is clean, you reduced the risk of contaminating the other part of your face. Wet your whole face with water and gently wash it using Mary Kay Clear Proof Clarifying Cleanser for Acne-Prone Skin. Do this every day morning and night.

Step 4 Exfoliate

Exfoliate your skin 2-3 times a week with Mary Kay Clear Proof Deep Cleansing Charcoal Mask. 

How to apply the charcoal mask

  • Put a pea size of the Charcoal Mask on your beauty fingers (pinky finger, ring finger and middle finger) or mask applicator brush then apply to your face from the chin to the temple; then to your forehead.  
  • Let dry for 10 minutes.
  • Rinse your face with lukewarm water and tap dry using a clean face towel.

Active charcoal is known for its effectiveness in exfoliating dead skin, unclogging pores, and clearing deep-seated dirt, toxins, impurities, and pimple-causing bacteria. 

Remember: This step is only done at night for 2-3 times a week. Do not do this every day.

Step 5 Toner

Freshen your skin with Clear Proof Blemish Control Toner. Dash the toner into a cotton ball or cotton pad then apply it into your whole face until it is completely absorbed. Without the facial mask, you can do this every day after cleansing your face.

Step 6 Spot Solution (optional)

Do this step only if you have pimples. Apply the Clear Proof Spot Solution on the tip of your active pimples. Do not spread the product on areas without pimples, OK?

Step 7  Moisturize

Hydrate your skin with Clear Proof Oil-free Moisturizer. Do this step every day morning and night. Your skin needs hydration even if it is oily to balance the water and oil content and to replenish the lost moisture after cleansing and exfoliating.

Step 8 Protection

Apply a non-comedogenic foundation for oily skin to protect your skin from further exposure from free-radicals, dust, pollution, and dirt. I recommend using the Timewise 3D Matte Foundation. Choose the tone that perfectly matches your skin tone and will hide the imperfections.

I have personally noticed that salicylic acid reacts quickly with UV rays which might cause skin darkening too quickly. Avoid this by reducing sun exposure and wearing a light and non-comedogenic foundation when going out to protect your skin. 

There you go! It’s your easy to follow skincare routine if you have mild to moderate pimples. 

Let me know once your skin condition has improved, so we can recommend what you will do next. It’s either you switch to Botanical Effects if you are below 30 years old or Timewise 3D if you prefer anti-aging skincare.
