No matter your age or how great your skincare routine is, you’ve experienced an acne breakout. While acne breakouts are a worn-out topic in skincare, we rarely discuss what happens after an acne breakout and how to care for your skin. If you're feeling overwhelmed, the BAZZAAL Team has got you covered. BAZZAAL BOX newest launch, Trial Kits, will help you find the perfect product for any routine.
After a breakout, your skin feels irritated, sensitive, and red because of the products you’ve used or the acne itself. Using soothing products and ingredients would help alleviate these effects. Some soothing ingredients include Calamine, Panthenol, and Centella Asiatica.
Calamine is an ingredient used to soothe minor skin conditions that may cause itching, irritation, burning, and redness. This includes acne, sunburn, and bug bites.
This product is perfect for sensitive skin. It helps revitalize your skin and ease irritation caused by breakouts. The balm combats redness and irritation by providing hydration and repairing the skin barrier for a more healthy and calm complexion.
Panthenol has been a superstar ingredient in skincare products for many years. Panthenol is a humectant, meaning it binds to water and enhances hydration. It is an excellent ingredient for moisturizing and maintaining your skin barrier.
This toner was formulated for acne-prone skin; it helps control sebum production and improves skin texture. In addition, it contains panthenol and five hyaluronic acids, which are great for moisturizing and soothing the skin.
Centella Asiatica has a long history. It's been used in folk medicine for hundreds of years and was traditionally used to heal minor wounds, burns, and scratches. Centella Asiatica's proven wound healing, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties make it the perfect ingredient to use after a breakout. Intrigued?

Breakouts are terrible, but the after-effects are even worse, as they may be harder to treat than acne. Common side effects of an acne breakout can be:
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation: the discoloration or spots left behind after the skin has healed from injury or inflammation.
- Acne scars: result from damage to the skin and loss of tissue. Acne scars appear pitted and leave indentations on the skin's surface. Ingredients like Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are great for treating acne scars.
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Ascorbic Acid has a cult following and has been a staple in many skincare routines because it has tremendous health benefits for the skin. Ascorbic Acid, commonly known as Vitamin C, is an antioxidant that helps boost the skin's collagen production and UV protection. In addition, it is incredibly effective at fading dark spots.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)
AHAs are a great way to start treating acne scars. AHAs aid the skin's natural exfoliation process, which allows new and evenly pigmented cells to generate. Removing dead skin cells allows for smoother, younger, and firmer skin. Common AHAs include Glycolic Acid and lactic Acid. Intrigued? Click here to learn more about this superstar ingredient.
