Oh, how we loathe that acne is even a topic of discussion. In a perfect world, breakouts would be a thing of the past — something for the history books, even— but no longer a daily struggle. We’ll get there one day (fingers crossed!), but for now, we’ve got hormones, stress, less-than-stellar diets and a host of other factors wreaking havoc on our skin. We try not to get too down about it though, because, as beauty bloggers, we always have a few tricks up our sleeves. Whether treating acne has been a long fought battle for you, or a pesky blemish has miraculously turned into a pattern of breakouts, don’t fret. Help is on the way in the form of a few life-changing products.
For Instant Gratification:
While you’d be hard pressed to find an acne treatment that’s truly instant, Kiehl’s Herbal Blue Spot Treatment is as close as it gets. The gentle-yet-effective formula quickly penetrates pores to attack acne and prevent future breakouts. Simply cleanse, apply, and reapply as needed to banish blemishes fast.
For Daily Control:
For a face wash that will beat blemishes without drying out your skin, L’Oreal Go 360° Clean Anti-Breakout Facial Cleanser is the way to go. It gives you a deeper clean while improving skin texture for a healthy, refreshed look all day long.
For Total Control:
If you need treatment on a regular basis, consider a product that will consistently deliver results. Used along with your fave Clarisonic device, Clarisonic Acne Clarifying Cleansing Set has the acne brush head and a potent cleanser that exfoliates and softens skin as well as clears breakouts.
To Save Sensitive Skin:
For a tough acne treatment that won’t irritate your mug, look for a dermatologist-tested, non-comedogenic product specifically formulated for sensitive skin like La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment.
To Prevent Future Breakouts:
Once you’ve wiped out the worst of the worst, build good skin habits by removing all your makeup before you go to bed and cleansing skin daily. Garnier Clean + The Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towelettes instantly removes makeup and other impurities, and immediately renews skin.
