If You Have Acne, this is the skincare routine Dr. Goldstein Recommends
For men with acne who are looking for clearer skin, dermatologist and co-founder of Get Mr. Dr. Beth Goldstein recommends The Daily as an all-in-one great face lotion - but why?
What is Acne?
Acne is a skin condition that can cause whiteheads, blackheads or pimples. Acne is most prevalent among teenagers, but it can occur at any age and at different severity levels. Acne typically occurs when your skin's pores are blocked with oil, dead skin or bacteria.
What is it about The Daily formulation that makes it a strong skincare option for men with acne?
If you have acne-prone or sensitive skin, taking a good look at your skincare ingredient label is essential.
As a dermatologist, I'll often times have patients who will claim 'my sunscreen made me breakout' or 'my serum gave me acne'. In reality, acne is a complex topic with multiple factors at play - your hormones, the products you use, the environment that you live in and more. That said, there are some best practices when choosing great skincare products if your skin is acne-prone.
Why The Daily by Get Mr. is great for acne-prone skin
The Daily by GETMr. is not 'just a sunscreen' or 'just a moisturizer', but rather, includes many wonderfully rich ingredients, such as Vitamin A palmitate, lactobionic acid (also known as polyhydroxy acid) and many more. These ingredients combined help in gently exfoliating the skin without causing irritation. Lactobionic acid is one of the best skin health ingredients for men. That said, even with these great ingredients, it's important to look for products that are non-comedogenic. Comedogenicity is a term that refers to whether or not a product will tend to cause blackheads, which we already mentioned is a factor relating to acne. To understand whether or not a product is non-comedogenic or simply stated, better for acne-prone skin, it must undergo weeks of lab testing.
The Daily by Get Mr. is non-comedogenic, meaning it has passed all testing to confirm it is a strong option for acne-prone skin.
But The Daily has SPF - doesn't sunscreen make acne worse?
Most sunscreen products on the market use ingredients that are not ultralight, but rather, leave an oily or greasy residue on your skin. These products can clog your pores, which can aggravate any existing acne.
What's different about The Daily, is that the lactobionic acid mentioned before also addresses the plugging of pores which is the first step towards preventing pimple formation. Silica, another ingredient in The Daily also works well, as it absorbs sweat and oil to improve the appearance of the skin.
Lastly, the formulation contains niacinamide, which helps reduce inflammation and redness also associated with regular acne and acne rosacea-prone skin.
Using The Daily every day is what I would recommend as a dermatologist to help you develop clear and healthy skin, whatever your age. As an added plus, when you use The Daily as part of your routine, you reduce your risk of skin cancer by 40%.
