Acne and Sensitive Skin

2.  Slowly Introduce New Treatments

Until you know how your skin reacts, introduce new products slowly and carefully. You may even want to test a bit on your inner arm to check for a reaction before trying it out on your face.

Along the same line, start using acne treatments slowly as well. Sure, you’re in a hurry to clear up your skin. But acne treatment products, even over-the-counter ones, can cause dryness and irritation in a hurry too.

Instead, try using your treatment products just three times per week. If your skin tolerates that well, slowly build up to using more often.
