The truth is, that you are going to have the problem of acne at some point, unless you are blessed. Typically, it’s at its worst during the teen years, but it can last well into your adult life, depending on a variety of factors. One way to keep breakouts to a minimum is to properly take care of your skin, including using a mineralmask from time to time. If you don’t provide your skin with what it needs, the acne will never get better. Here are a few do’s and don’ts for taking care of skin that is prone to acne.


First of all, make sure that you wash your hair on a regular basis. After all, if you have oily skin, you probably have oily hair as well. If you’re not taking care of your hair, the oil from your hair could travel to your face, increasing breakouts.

When cleansing, you should be using a gel because these are made for those who have oily and combination skin.

Avoid touching your face as much as possible- unless you’re washing it. After all, think about where your hands have been- do you want those germs on your face?

Choose products that contain benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid- these are the most common ingredients for fighting acne.

On the other hand, you must keep in mind that when you have skin that is prone to breaking out, you should avoid exfoliators until you consult with a dermatologist.

You should never tan and make sure that you’re always safe in the sun because the sun can cause significant damage to your skin- and increase breakouts. Always wear a product with SPF every day.

Finally, if you are prone to acne, you shouldn’t be picking at your pimples, no matter how tempting it is. Simply let them naturally and it will heal much quicker.
