Anyone who’s suffered from acne knows it’s the pits. Dealing with insecurity day in, day out. Searching the web for acne tips and crazy household remedies only to be told to wash your face more often by people who just don’t get it.
We know the struggles involved in treating acne. That’s why we’re recommending four different products to help clear spots and bring your confidence back.
These products are super easy to slip into your skincare routine, whether you wanted to try an extra treatment or change up your entire regime.
So, put on those boxing gloves. It’s time to knock those bad boys out once and for all!
Unlike other acne-targeted facial scrubs that over dry the skin, this scrub by Neutrogena uses a creamy skin-moisturising formula to condition the skin whilst exfoliating all those pore-clogging nasties and treating existing acne.
The breakthrough MicroClear technology has been scientifically shown to enhance delivery of acne-treating medicine directly to its source. The scrubs also contains skin soothing green tea and cucumber to ease redness and discomfort.
This scrub also doesn’t contain any microbeads so that’s one hooray for irritation-free skin and another big hooray for the environment!
Clay masks have an alkalising effect and are the perfect remedy for soaking up excess sebum that can cause clogged pores.
What makes this clay mask in particular so wonderful? Green tea.
Green tea’s antibacterial agent regulates hormonal imbalances, remineralisers the skin with the Earth’s natural nutrients and soothes raging redness.
This all-natural, organic green tea clay mask soothes and smooths the skin, removes excess oil and provides deep, luxurious exfoliation. If you suffer from hormonal acne, you need this mask in your life!
Vitamin C’s antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties promote cell regeneration for firmer, more resilient skin, while Shea Butter and French Saffron deeply moisturise, enhance skin tone and impart radiance.
This cream can be applied morning and night on all skin types, including those showing signs of sun damage, age spots or acne scars.
There’s nothing worse than waking up with a nasty breakout the day before a big event. In which case, these minimising patches are your answered prayer.
These fast-acting cleansing patches work their magic while you sleep. Grape seed is non-comedogenic and rich in linoleic acid which helps to treat acne, whilst the antibacterial agents in tea tree help rid the skin of the bacteria that causes acne in the first place.
