Health Tip: Caring for Acne-Prone Skin

(HealthDay News) -- Skin that's prone to acne needs special care to help keep it smooth and clear.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions:

  • Wash your face with a cleanser designed for people with acne.
  • Look for cleansers that include salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.
  • Wash your face gently, avoiding pressure that may aggravate acne.
  • Never pick at acne or scrub skin vigorously.
  • Use a light, non-comedogenic moisturizer.
  • Choose an oil-free foundation if you wear makeup.
