Choose acne products that compliment everything else you use on your skin. Many prescriptions for acne can have a drying effect. If your cleanser is also drying, or if your moisturizer is not strong enough, your skin will more than likely become irritated. Other acne medications can make you more sensitive to sun exposure, so a daily moisturizer with sunscreen would be your best choice. Also, avoid using too many products with the same active ingredients, which can lead to irritation, and may waste your money. Contact our Skin Care Specialists (phone and email) when you need help with your skin care routine.
