Did you know that acne and oily skin problems are no longer exclusively affecting teenagers? Nowadays, dermatologists have been seeing a rise in adult acne which can be just as stressful to deal with.

If you wish to clear up any blemishes so you can look your best in those festive selfies, fret not! We’ve gathered top tips from skincare experts on how to effectively treat acne just in time for Chinese New Year. Curious? Read on to find out more!


1. Make sure to thoroughly but gently cleanse the skin

Does your face still feel oily after washing? Start cleansing your face properly by following the 60-second rule where you massage the cleanser into your skin for a full minute. For optimum results, use lukewarm water and lather up your cleanser in your hands to activate acne-fighting ingredients in the cleanser.


2. Opt for oil-free & non-comedogenic skincare

Non-comedogenic skincare refers to products that are formulated with ingredients that will not clog your pores. So, when trying to get rid of acne, make sure that you use skincare products that are oil-free and non-comedogenic to prevent clogged pores and pimples from forming on your skin.


3. Avoid touching your face & don’t pop your pimples

Touching your blemishes could transfer bacteria from your hands to your skin which can worsen your acne. This is why popping pimples is a big no-no to prevent bacteria from entering open wounds and worsening infections which can also lead to scarring.


4. Do not use a harsh “face scrub” or “exfoliator”

Those harsh face scrubs are dangerous for acne-prone skin as they can cause micro-tears in the skin and irritate your blemishes. These scrubs can also strip the natural oil from your skin and damage your skin barrier. This will cause your oil glands to produce more oil to “make up” for the loss of moisture which will lead to excessively oily skin.


5. Use skincare that acts as acne treatment with clinically proven results

When dealing with acne, post-acne marks or oily skin, it’s important to opt for skincare products that are formulated to treat acne. It will be more helpful if these products are clinically proven to be able to produce effective results.

A good product for acne-prone skin should contain anti-blemish properties to heal the acne faster and exfoliating ingredients such as AHA and BHA to reduce the appearance of post-acne marks.

Not sure what product is suitable? This dermatologist-approved cleanser for acne-prone skin that has been going viral on TikTok might be the one for you.

We’re talking about the NEW Eucerin ProACNE Solution 3X+ Treatment ++ Gel To Foam Cleanser that is anti-blemish, anti-mark and anti-shine!


Many TikTok users (especially those with acne-prone skin) claim it could effectively reduce blemishes and post-acne marks. Some of them have also posted their results online where we could see visible improvement on their skin. Just check some of them out below:

Based on these videos, here are some reasons why this cleanser has received so many good reviews:

  • The cleanser is suitable to treat any type of acne-prone skin – from excessive oiliness and blemishes to post-acne marks.
  • The anti-blemish benefit comes from the 2% Salicylic Acid that helps to reduce bacteria and impurities on the skin and unclog pores to prevent acne reoccurrences.
  • The anti-marks benefit is derived from the AHA, BHA and PHA complex acids that gently exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells and reduce the visibility of acne marks, revealing clearer and smoother skin.
  • The product comes in gel form but turns into foam when mixed with water to gently cleanse the skin without being overly drying.
