Skin Care

Taking care of your skin involves understanding key elements that address common concerns like acne, psoriasis, and eczema.

For acne-prone skin, it’s essential to maintain a gentle cleansing routine using a mild, non-comedogenic cleanser to remove excess oil and prevent clogged pores. Incorporating products with ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide can help manage breakouts.

For psoriasis, keeping the skin moisturized is crucial to alleviate dryness and itchiness. Look for fragrance-free moisturizers containing ingredients like ceramides or shea butter.

Eczema-prone skin benefits from a similar approach, with a focus on hypoallergenic, fragrance-free products to soothe irritation. Regular moisturizing, preferably after bathing, helps maintain the skin’s natural barrier. Additionally, identifying triggers and avoiding them, along with staying hydrated and using sunscreen, are universal practices to promote healthy skin across these conditions. 

Alternative therapies are available that may relieve the above conditions.
