Dermatologists are seeing more acne in adults, predominantly in women, than they had in the last years

Cleansing
Gentle, non-comedogenic, antibacterial cleansers, preferably with a pH between 5 and 7.3 (the closest to normal skin value), should be used to maintain a healthy skin microbiome.

Leave-on skincare
Avoid alcohol and synthetic oil in leave-on acne skincare formulations while using masks, due to the increased risk of irritant contact dermatitis under prolonged occlusion.

Moisturizers
Serum, mist, lotion, and cream-based vehicles, preferred over ointments. Moisturizers are essential in the maintenance of a healthy skin barrier function and reduce disruption of the skin microbiome, besides acting as a shield against external triggers.
