Though there are many store bought products available we should select them wisely after reading their ingredients and reviews. Each and every one is unique and this applies to our skin also. The products raved by others might not suit you.so think before purchasing products. Now let us see the skin care for pimple prone skin.
Of course cleansing play a vital role in taking care of a skin. To treat pimples or acne try to use cleansers that are gel type and avoid that contains oils. Try to use foaming cleansers.

Don't wash your face more than thrice in a day since it can worsen the condition. Over washing can lead to drying of skin.
Be gentle while washing your face.
Always try to use gentle cleansers.
This is also a vital step in skin care. Toning helps to close the open pores thus reducing the chances of breakouts. Toners are of three types,
TONERS: These are mildest and tend to be gentle on skin.
ASTRINGENT: These are not mild, these tend to be stronger than toner and only oily skinned beauties can use it since it is drying in nature.
ALCOHOLS: These are the strongest among the 3 and tend to dry out the skin. We should avoid alcohols in toners.
