"What products are best suited for a client on antibiotics and topicals for acne?"
  • Print

Always consult the client’s doctor when dealing with medications. Generally, acne medications are already exfoliating and drying to the skin, so you want to avoid products that exacerbate these. Gentle cream-based cleansers may be more suitable for sensitive and dehydrated skin. Focus on barrier-repairing products that shield and protect the skin while they heal. You can use spot treatments when necessary as long as it is not contraindicated with medications. A broad spectrum physical sunscreen is also beneficial for a sensitive skin.
