Acne on black skin : errors to avoid

1. Cleanse your skin too much

Good hygiene is the first step towards healthy skin. However, forget the idea that the more you cleanse your skin, the cleaner it becomes. The reality is that the more you cleanse your skin, the more sensitive, irritable and fragile you make it. The surface of the skin is protected by a hydrolipidic film. The latter prevents pathogens from entering and eliminates toxins that the body evacuates to the outside. Excessive cleaning weakens this protective film and causes the appearance of imperfections on the skin. To avoid stripping your skin drastically, be reasonable with cleansing, exfoliation, cleansing cosmetics, and the use of skin-grating tools. Cleansers for acne-prone skin are harsh with frequent use. In the morning, the skin is rarely dirty, a spray of thermal water is enough. At night, use a gentle cleanser to flush out impurities.

2. Not removing makeup

Before going to bed, never forget to remove your makeup and cleanse your skin. Cosmetics, sebum, perspiration and impurities don't mix. If not cleaned properly, they get incorporated and form a rash mixture that promotes irritation of black skin and aggravates acne. For complete make-up removal, use micellar water or make-up remover milk and gently massage your face with your fingertips. Thereafter, wipe your face with cotton or a small cloth. Once you have removed your make-up, cleanse your skin with a little soap or moisturize it with a lotion. If you're not a fan of cleansing milk, opt for vegetable oil [15] (jojoba, coconut, nigella, etc.) and continue with the same steps. In addition to removing makeup, vegetable oil revitalizes your skin. It is compatible with acne-prone black skin.
