Hello Zeno, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Acne prone type skin generally has large pores that are quite a lot, where these pores are usually inside there are oil glands that produce a lot of oil so that it will aggravate the condition of acne prone experienced. However, to reduce oil on the face can not be done haphazardly, if it is done in an inappropriate way, the facial skin can actually become very dry and easily irritated.
Skin owners who have more oil, especially in the T zone, usually have large, shiny pores with blackheads. so the face will look dull, blemished and easy to grow pimples. Clindamicin is an antibacterial drug / antibiotic that is usually used for acne caused by P. acnes bacteria. Apart from infection from these bacteria, other factors that influence the growth of acne on facial skin are excessive production of facial oil, a blockage in hair follicles and also the activity of excess androgen hormones.
The use of cream-based moisturizers will provide a blockage in the pores so that they can trigger acne. So that the right product for skin that tends to be oily and large porous and prone to breakouts is to be water-based or waterbased and even better if it is labeled oil free and noncomedogenic. Because waterbased products will be easily absorbed by the pores of the skin without leaving residues in the pores so that they do not clog pores and accumulate facial oil in the glands.
Our advice is that you should consult with a dermatologist to get the right treatment for your acne-prone and oily skin. Because without proper treatment, it is likely that acne is getting inflamed and numerous or if it is too dry, the skin can become irritated and trigger acne again and it will be more difficult to handle. Meanwhile, to do at home you need to do cleansing on the facial skin by washing your face at least 2 times a day with facial soap suitable for your skin, good care depends on how cleansing is done on the facial skin. After washing your face, don't forget to use an appropriate moisturizer, choose a waterbased, because this moisturizer functions to restore the pH of the skin so that the protective layer of the skin is not damaged, keep using sunscreen when outside the house, especially if you are active under the sun, and while using make-up that isn't thick so it doesn't clog your pores. Such is our explanation. I hope this helps.
