Back to school bagFall…time for back to school, for getting back into a routine. The anticipation, excitement and, in some cases, anxiety can wreak havoc on your complexion. If those hot summer days haven’t brought you a sweat-induced breakout yet (lucky you), then the combined stress of a revved-up fall schedule could easily show up on your face. The good news is that while acne is not curable, it is treatable and controllable.

Use these easy tips to stay ahead of back-to-school acne and score flawless-looking skin:

  • Wash your face both before bed and in the morning. A whole day’s worth of dirt, oil and even environmental pollution can coat your face by the end of the day. Likewise, hair products can rub off onto your pillow, and from there end up on your cheeks, so it’s important to start clean every morning.

  • It’s important to remove layers of dead skin cells and dirt so they don’t block your pores. Gentle exfoliation also keeps your skin glowing.
  • Don’t pick or pop. Disturbing a pimple can cause infections and make it worse, sometimes leaving a scar. Dab a sulfur treatment on the problem area twice a day to bring down the swelling, or try an Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash to unclog pores and reduce visible redness.
  • Keep it simple. Too many products can aggravate your skin. the proper regimen, a simple, four-step continuous solution can address the acne cycle, eliminating most acne blemishes before they are visible on the skin’s surface.
  • See your dermatologist. If you’re still having acne challenges, see your dermatologist for a consult.

There’s one thing to remember if nothing else: you should continue doing what works for you. “When it comes to beating acne, success is routine.”
