If you have dry, acne-prone skin, you know how hard it is to find a cream to address all your concerns at once. Most people associate acne blemishes with oily skin, but the truth is that many dry conditions (such as rosacea) can cause acne breakouts, leaving skin both dry and broken out.
Why does dry skin break out?
The answer to this varies. In short, you can get an acne blemish any time a hair follicle becomes clogged. In oily skin, the clog is usually caused by excess oil. But the follicles can also be clogged by cosmetic products, dirt, bacteria, and dead skin cells — the last being the major cause of acne in dry skin.
If you have dry skin, it’s often flaky and rough. There are dead skin cells galore that refuse to slough off, so instead they clog follicles, leading to breakouts. Dry skin may also try to overcompensate for its dryness by actually overproducing oil, further leading to clogs when those dead skin cells keep oil trapped.
Lastly, conditions associated with dryness, such as rosacea, come with their own forms of pimples which operate similarly to acne blemishes, though they’re not identical. Treatment for rosacea blemishes may differ from traditional acne treatments; however, when it comes to ATOPALM’s secret weapon against blemishes, you only need one product whether you’re dealing with acne or rosacea.
How do I treat pimples in dry skin?
Many popular acne treatments can be harsh and over-drying to the skin, simply because they’re meant for oily, traditionally acne-prone skin. Top acne products often contain benzoyl peroxide, an ingredient which can irritate any skin type, but positively wreak havoc on dry, sensitive skin.
Rather than exposing dry skin to overly stripping acne products, it’s important to find a formulation which will treat the blemishes without upsetting surrounding skin. In this way, you can reduce the appearance of pimples and help them heal without undoing the work of your other skin care products.
What’s the best spot treatment for dry acne-prone skin?
Call us biased if you want, but the truth is still the truth: ATOPALM Cicarelief Cream is our #1 best-selling product for acne. Not only that, but it’s an excellent blemish treatment whether your skin is dry or not! It can be used on acne blemishes as well as rosacea blemishes, and anything in between.
The unique benefits of Cicarelief Cream come from the combination of ATOPALM MLE and calamine. These two ingredients target blemishes from a healing standpoint, as well as a soothing standpoint. MLE repairs and supports skin health while calamine reduces inflammation, redness, and irritation. The result is skin that both looks and feels better while it’s actually being healed — not just covered or dried up.
