What Type Of Acne Do You Have – And How To Handle Them

Acne, a pesky skin condition affecting both genders, isn't just a teenage problem—it can persist into adulthood, dubbed 'Adult Acne'.

Beyond its physical impact, acne can profoundly affect self-image, leading to embarrassment in social settings.

So, how can you banish these blemishes? Well, different acne types demand specific treatments and products.

Let's break it down:


These oily blemishes occur when pores get clogged with oil and skin, trapping the oil beneath the surface. To prevent them:

- Cleanse your face twice daily to control oil.

- Opt for water-based moisturizers.

- Ditch oily and deep-fried foods.


Common on the nose, blackheads are clogged pores exposed to air, oxidizing the oil inside and turning them dark. Combat them with:

- Regular exfoliation.

- Deep-cleansing pore strips.


Small, red bumps caused by bacterial inflammation, papules can be sensitive. Soothe them with:

- Topical cortisone cream.

- Products containing calming ingredients like kaolin clay or green tea.


These pus-filled blemishes are tempting to pop but doing so risks scarring. Treat them with:

- Spot treatments featuring antibacterial agents.

- Drying agents like camphor.

Cystic Acne:

Deep, painful, and prone to scarring, cystic acne often requires dermatological intervention. For prevention:

- Consider reducing dairy intake, particularly if cystic acne appears around the chin and jawline.

Beyond specific treatments, adopting healthy habits can work wonders for your skin:

- Stay hydrated and load up on fruits and veggies.

- Incorporate healthy fats like avocados and nuts into your diet.

- Always remove makeup before bed to let your skin breathe.

- Exfoliate weekly to slough off dead skin cells.

- Manage stress through sleep, meditation, or exercise.

By embracing these practices, you're one step closer to achieving the radiant skin you've always desired.
