Cleansing Acne Prone Skin


Proper cleansing for acne-prone skin is crucial.


Pick the right cleanser that doesn’t overdry your skin 

  • Using chemical exfoliants (salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, or glycolic acid) are good but don’t overuse them. SUR uses plant-based enzymes for a mild exfoliation
  • Avoid physical exfoliants (jojoba seeds) as they may be too harsh for your skin. 

Wash your face twice a day (general rule)

  • Don’t overwash your face
  • Overdrying can cause breakouts worse
  • Acne-prone skin is usually the result of hormones, genetics, and clogged pores, not from not washing your face enough

Remove all makeup and sunscreen every night 

  • Use micellar water or a makeup remover to take off makeup and sunscreen
  • Use a cleanser after removing makeup and sunscreen

Use lukewarm water

  • Hot water can strip the skin of natural oils or break down delicate tissue
  • Warm water is best

Always use a new washcloth

  • Clean washcloths, brushes or cleaning aids will help the spread of bacteria
  • Change and clean pillowcases, towels, hats frequently

Gently pat dry skin

  • Gently pat your skin dry with a towel
  • Don't scrub or rub your skin dry, as this can irritate your skin 
  • Use a separate towel for face and body
