Skincare Routine for Breakout-Prone Skin | RAWW Cosmetics | 01

It’s a constant battle isn’t it? No matter how many tricks and home remedies you try, figuring out how to limit breakouts can be very complex.

And believe us, girl, we know that pimples can be a blow to your self-esteem and leave you feeling less than your glowy self.

When it comes to your skincare, it’s important to know what products to use to help limit breakouts. At RAWW, we want you to feel your best every day so we’ve done the hard work for you and carefully created the best skincare routine for breakout and acne-prone skin that will care for your skin, using only the most skin-loving and ultra-soothing ingredients!

Our Skincare Tips For Breakout-Prone Skin

The truth is, many of us have experienced breakouts this year because of ‘maskne’, aka pimples caused by wearing a face mask for long periods of time. Wearing a mask can cause buildup of oil, dead skin, bacteria and dirt. It can also trap humidity from your breathing or sweat, which makes you break out more than usual. To help you deal with maskne, we recommend checking out our 5-step skincare routine for maskne breakouts.

But maskne aside, there are some tips you can implement to limit breakouts, even if you tend to have acne-prone skin. For example, be careful about what you’re eating and drinking. It’s not only what we put on our skin that can cause breakouts, it’s what we put inside our bodies too. Making sure you stay super hydrated and eat a balanced diet can help prevent pimples and help you get your glow back.

And keep your hands off your face! Dirt and sweat from your hands gets onto your skin and can cause breakouts. Ensuring you wash your pillowcase regularly will also help to keep those nasties at bay while you sleep.

That being said, we’re not here to preach that drinking enough water and not touching your face will cure all of your skin concerns. We know it’s way more complex than that! The good news is, your choice of skincare can also have a huge influence on your skin. Choosing appropriate skincare for acne-prone skin will help limit breakouts, make sure your skin remains hydrated without looking oily, and will help you get your glow back!

We’ve put together an easy 5-step routine for you that will help your skin thrive:

Our Easy Skincare Routine For Breakout-Prone Skin

4. Moisturise

Breakout-prone skin, even if it's oily, needs moisture. Without moisture, your oil glands produce excessive sebum (oil), leading to clogged pores and shiny/oily skin. Using a good moisturiser regularly helps restore and protect your skin.

For a moisturiser suitable for dry breakout-prone skin, try the Activate-ME Face Moisturiser. It has a lightweight formula and is super hydrating, so it won’t feel like it’s weighing your skin down or making it greasy. We use Lime oil for its antibacterial properties and WildBerry Harvest™ to keep your skin super hydrated all day. You can use it morning and night for dewy, glowy skin!

5. SPF

Always, ALWAYS finish with an SPF to protect your skin. Not only is it essential when paired with a chemical exfoliant (like the exfoliating serum we recommended above), SPF is also a must for us breakout-prone ladies as UV exposure can make our little acne scars and marks much worse and stick around for longer.

Wear SPF under your favourite foundation or go for an all-in-one solution with our Super-Camo Foundation with SPF15. As well as protecting your skin, it will also give you light coverage which can help seamlessly cover up existing blemishes or scars and even out your skin tone.
