We thought that acne would stop scaring us after the teenage years, but the red bumps still haunt us from time to time throughout our life. The occurrence of pimples can be due to seasonal changes or that ‘time of the month’. We asked our GloBox experts for their advice on treating acne and here’s what we found out.


Cleansing is the key

Acne occurs due to clogged pores. The sebum gets trapped in skin cells along with bacteria and causes the inflammation of the skin we call ‘a pimple’. Hence it is important to keep our pored clean and remove any dead skin cells. Use the right face wash according to your skin type.

You can’t Skip the moisturizer

Many people think that applying a moisturizer would aggravate the acne but the truth is skipping moisturizer causes acne in many people. As in absence of moisture, the skin produces more sebum to compensate for it leading to acne. The key is to find the right moisturizer that will keep the skin moisture balance in check.

It is advised to use spot treatments only at night time as some ingredients can make your skin photo sensitive and their healing properties are maximum during night time.
