6 Tips for Acne Prevention in North Myrtle Beach

When you’re in the thick of struggling with acne, it’s hard to imagine a way out. Oftentimes acne comes with a vengeance; it lingers even if you’re doing everything right on paper. 

Well, you can forget about everything you’re currently doing for a moment, because we’re here to help—whether that’s through acne prevention in North Myrtle Beach or acne treatments.

At Touch MedSpa, we are passionate about helping our patients restore their confidence. And as much as we love helping patients overcome active acne—our goal is to do everything we can to prevent our patients from needing this kind of help in the first place! 

6 Tips for Acne Prevention in 3, 2, 1…Go!

1. Keep your skin clean

We know what you’re thinking: duh. But hear us out! Your face may come into contact with a lot more than you think: sunglasses, phone, fingers (but stop that), hair, pillowcases, makeup brushes—you get the picture. 


  • Wash your face with your chosen (hopefully medical-grade; more on that later) cleanser twice a day 
  • Disinfect/clean your phone, sunglasses, makeup brushes, and anything else that touches your face
  • Wash your pillowcases regularly 


  • Touch your face

2. Exfoliate regularly

Exfoliating regularly is incredibly important for clearing out acne-causing bacteria. You’ll be removing bacteria, unclogging your pores, and clearing away dead skin cells. 

After exfoliation, your skin is a brand-new slate! You’ll notice smoother, softer skin that absorbs makeup and product so much better. 

One of our favorite products for acne prevention in North Myrtle Beach is ZO Skin Health’s Exfoliating Polish. When you apply it 2 to 3 times a week with water, your eyes will be opened to fresh, clean skin that’s as smooth as ever. 

3. Medical-grade skincare

While we’re on the topic of skincare products, let’s make sure we’re on the same page about medical-grade skincare. 

Medical-grade skincare contains higher (and purer) concentrations of the active ingredients that feed your skin nutrients. These products penetrate deeper into the skin than over-the-counter products. 

These prescription-strength products are manufactured in a pharmacy and are only purchasable through a licensed provider, like Touch MedSpa! 

Over-the-counter products may be less expensive, but medical-grade skincare works faster and better to contribute to your long-term skin health. It’s a question of bang for your buck!

4. Give your skincare routine a chance to work its magic

Starting a new skincare routine can be exciting! But when you’re expecting immediate results, you find that your high hopes quickly plummet to the ground. As much as we wish our new products would fix all our problems immediately, that’s not how it works.

To really test out a new routine, you have to give it time. Don’t go changing all your products when nothing magically improves in the first week. Your skin needs time to absorb the high-quality ingredients and get to work!

When you come to Touch MedSpa for a skin consultation, we’ll be able to inspect your skin. From here, we’ll build you a custom treatment plan that’ll include medical-grade product recommendations. 

5. Dabble with preventative facials

Medical facials are an incredible option for acne prevention in North Myrtle Beach. We offer a variety of facials that tackle a range of skin concerns, including dullness, clogged pores, dryness, and so much more. 


One of our favorite, most satisfying treatments is dermaplaning. This treatment will instantly smooth your skin while wiping away peach fuzz, dead skin cells, and dry, flaky skin. 

By clearing all this gunk away, you’ll have less acne-causing bacteria and dead skin and hair in the way, allowing for optimal medical-grade product absorption. 

Dermaplaning is incredible on its own, but it’s even better when combined with other facials or peels! Once we learn about your skin, we can recommend a facial or peel add-on for optimal results.


Our next big player in acne prevention is microdermabrasion. For this treatment, we use a device to gently exfoliate and remove the topmost layer of your skin. In doing so, the device removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and removes excess oils. 

Microdermabrasion includes a signature facial, leaving you with a fresh, rejuvenated appearance and feel—like a shield for any incoming acne! 


A micropeel is yet another treatment for clearing out the “ick”! This treatment removes dead and damaged skin cells, cleanses your skin, then gently freezes the skin cells on the topmost layer of your skin. 

After we decongest your skin with a micropeel, you’ll enjoy bright, clean, and smooth skin!


The last treatment we want to highlight for acne prevention in North Myrtle Beach is the HydraFacial. Yes, this facial does what you think it does: hydrates your skin! That’s not all, though; it exfoliates and extracts, too. 

Through exfoliating, extracting impurities, and deep hydration, your skin will be primed for medical-grade products and acne breakout battles! HydraFacials are popular as a stand-alone treatment and as an add-on to multiple other treatments. 

6. Work with a skincare specialist

By working with a skincare specialist, you can uncover your unique skin concerns and goals and try treatments and products safely under the supervision of skin experts.
