The battle against acne is already challenging enough – sensitive skin makes it even tougher. If you have both acne-prone and sensitive skin, you might find many skincare products that treat acne are way too harsh and irritating for your skin. This is because many acne-fighting products targeted at drying up excess sebum and clearing pores are better tolerated by oily skin types – which have more moisture in their skin!
Best Skincare Ingredients For Acne-Prone and Sensitive Skin
- MicroSilver BG™
Microsilver, although relatively unheard of in the Asian skincare market, has already been making waves in European skincare as the best anti-acne ingredient for sensitive skin patients. Not to be confused with “nanosilver” which is known to have negative side effects on your skin, the silver ions released by microsilver only remains in the uppermost skin layer and can be used on irritated skin safely.
It is a pure silver powder consisting of highly porous and micro-size grade silver. The positively charged silver ions generated can inactivate crucial structures on surfaces of bacteria, effectively preventing bacterial growth and supporting the regeneration of healthy and radiant skin. A clinical trial conducted has shown that the antibacterial properties of silver have effectively reduced the occurrence of acne after applying products with MircroSilver BG™ twice daily for eight weeks. The best part? There were no adverse effects recorded in any of the participants!
In other medical researches, combining micro silver into skincare solutions showed that microsilver had high anti-microbial and anti-bacterial activities, removing impurities in the skin and reducing inflammation, thus restoring it to health. micro silver is also very gentle to the skin and is rarely shown to be a skin irritant, even among those with hypersensitive skin. Compared to traditional acne-fighting products that can be harsh and drying on your skin – consequently even worsening your skin condition, microsilver is undoubtedly the best ingredient when it comes to acne-fighting ingredients that work for sensitive skin.
- Witch Hazel
Witch hazel acts as an astringent in skincare, which means that it helps to cleanse your skin and tighten your pores. As we age, the collagen production in our skin slows down, loses its elasticity and starts to sag. As a result, your pores appear larger. Witch hazel contains tannins which cause proteins in your skin to contract, tightening your skin temporarily, giving it a smooth and clear look.
On top of that, witch hazel is an essential ingredient if you suffer from oily skin or acne-prone skin. As an astringent, it is able to penetrate your pores and clear the impurities effectively! This will help to prevent your pores from clogging up and becoming inflamed.
- Green Tea Extract
As a powerhouse skincare ingredient, green tea has many benefits because of its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that make it suitable to fight the root cause of skin problems: inflammation of the skin. Experts say that green tea is suitable for all skin types and can soothe irritated and red skin, as well as inflammation in skin conditions like eczema.
Medical studies have suggested that polyphenols, which can be found in green tea can inhibit sebum production in the skin, treating and preventing acne. In another study, EGCG (green tea’s most abundant polyphenol) reactivated dying skin cells in the epidermis layer, improving many skin conditions like wrinkles, uneven skin texture and even prevent acne scarring.
- Salicylic Acid
Salicylic acid is a common ingredient commonly found in over-the-counter skincare products targeted at treating acne. It is so common that you probably have used an anti-acne product containing salicylic acid before! This beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) is a chemical exfoliant that effectively clears the surface of your skin of excess oil, impurities and dead skin cells. As a result, salicylic is very useful for deep cleaning clogged pores and thus, clearing mild and superficial acne like blackheads and whiteheads.
