Does washing an oily face frequently help or exacerbate acne-prone skin?
Some so-called experts say wash more to get rid of excess sebum, while others claim the excess washing just increases the oil production. What's the best method for cleansing your face without causing more acne flare ups?
It can make it worse. Any soap or cleanser strips the skin of natural oils, which helps initially, however the body then goes into "overdrive" producing more oil and the result is a vicious circle of sorts. My husband who has very oily skin does much better with my homemade soap (It has all the natural oils/glycerin left in it and is moisturizing) than he does with commercial soaps for oily skin or cleansers. He washes his face once a day after work with soap (being outside) any other time he needs to wipe his face he uses a cloth with water only - that really has helped his skin to stop overdoing it with cleansers and to use a milder, handmade soap. Changing his diet helped as well - he stopped eating processed foods and junky foods and noticed an almost instant difference there as well.
Washing an oily face frequently does not help or exacerbate acen-prone skin. Frequent washing with soap damages the skin because of the harsh chemicals in the soap. The best way is to use a mild face wash 3 - 4 times a day. Remember do not scrub your skin vigorously when washing and gently pat dry.
Alternately consult a dermatologist if the skin condition is bad. The dermatologist will give a face wash suited for your skin and will give the necessary guidance. If the condition is very bad then the dermatologist will combine the treatment with antibiotics.
Using harsh cleansers can actually make skin break out. You want to use a gentle cleanser. You also want to stay away from skin care products that contain mineral oil since it can make your face break out. I wrote a hub about mineral oil. Feel free to check it out: http://fitmom.hubpages.com/hub/Mineral- … end-or-foe
Before I switched to products that do not have mineral oil, my face would break out. For years, I used harsh cleansers and didn't moisturize because of the break-outs. Finally, I found products that are gentle and moisturize without the break-outs and my skin looks healthy.
