Acne usually appears on oily skin since it is triggered by an exaggerated release of sebum by the sebaceous glands, leading to the proliferation of bacteria leading to inflammation of the follicles.
In some cases, people who have acne can feel dry skin, having difficulty finding products that meet the need for hydration and treatment of pimples.
Is it normal to have acne with dry skin?
Some people who feel dry skin may also have acne, but usually these cases are dehydrated skin, which is very common in oily skins, which may have oiliness and luster but lack water.
Oily skins tend to become dehydrated due to the excessive loss of water through the dilated pores, which are very characteristic of oily skins, and to excess sebum production, which is a factor that hinders hydration. In addition, people with oily skin use too abrasive acne care products available at Bestkenko, which remove the natural oils from skin protection.
However, if dry skin is not well treated and if very aggressive soaps are used; it may become brittle and susceptible to entry of bacteria and chemicals leading to a change in the function of the skin barrier and the activation of the immune response, occurring inflammation and the formation of so-called pimples. In addition, they can also appear due to clogging of the pores, which can be caused by the overuse of cosmetic products.
In addition, a dry skin can also be an oily skin, which is known for mixed skin. This type of skin is usually oily in the T zone, which is the region of the forehead, chin and nose and is dry on the rest of the face. Thus, a mixed skin may have acne in the T zone due to excess sebum production, but keep dry in the cheeks, for example.
How to deal with this problem
Ideal is to evaluate case by case, which can be done with the help of a dermatologist, because the treatment will depend on the skin type.
- Dehydrated skin with acne
Before choosing the right acne care products for this situation, it is important to know that dehydrated skin is a skin that needs water and ingredients that retain this water in the skin. However, these products sold at Bestkenko may not have too much of the oils in the formulation, so do not make acne worse.
- Mixed skin with acne
Mixed acne skin needs to be nourished and moisturized, which is difficult to achieve with only one product because either this product gives more oil to the skin, worsens acne, or gives in too little, leaving the skin drier.
What you can do is choose some other cleansing skin care products available at Bestkenko that have the indication for mixed skins.
- Dry skin with pimples
In situations where the person actually has dry skin and some pimples appear, the products to be used are a dry skin cleansing gel or cream.
