Acne Treatment Tips for Brown Skin

3.  See an Experienced Professional

Make an appointment as soon as you notice breakouts, even if they are relatively mild. Don’t delay or you’ll risk developing pigmentation problems. Your dermatologist can tell you if you’re experiencing common acne, rosacea, or another skin disorder, and get you on a treatment routine that will work for your skin type.

One survey has shown that dermatologists need more training treating diseases in skin of color. So be sure to ask if your doctor has experience treating people with darker complexions.

And if you are thinking about going to a salon for facial treatments, make sure your skin therapist knows the ins and outs of treating brown skin: Don’t be afraid to ask.
