No matter the age, nobody wants blemishes, of any size, popping up on their face, especially when it seems to happen right before an important event. Luckily, there’s a broad range of solutions for all skin types when breakouts happen and we picked these products to accommodate those needs. Not everyone needs the strength of a mask or the clearing oil, you may just need the Banish Stick or the Microdart Patch for an emergency. Whatever your concern is, there’s a product for you.
Salicylic Acid Masque
This mask has everything you need for a facial detox. The charcoal and clay draws out impurities while the salicylic acid kills the acne-causing bacteria. The squalane leaves your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. Use this once a week for a skin reset, or when you’re having a surprise breakout.
This ampoule can be used as a serum alone or as a booster to your moisturizer or even your makeup. This powerful product contains many skin clearing and healing ingredients like Tea Tree Oil, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Folic Acid, Collagen, Niacinamide and Biotin. This is a clear skin solution in a bottle and is amazingly affordable for all that it does.
This lightweight moisturizer softens skin with amino acids and urea while clearing clogged pores using Salicylic Acid and Pine Needle Extract . There’s some known anti-aging and pore reducing ingredients as well like Ginger Root Extract and Niacinamide. This gel is great if you want a simple skincare routine that doesn’t involve many steps because this will cover what a serum and a moisturizer would usually do.
This is a great spot treatment for anyone that doesn’t have a lot of acne and just wants a couple areas cleared up. It mainly uses Salicylic Acid like other acne treatments, but it does so in a concentrated way with Witch Hazel to more effectively treat specific areas. As a bonus, the formula contains Sophora Japonica Flower, Tasmanian Pepper Fruit, and Burdock Root extracts to reduce redness which would decrease the appearance of any blemishes.
Acne Clearing Oil
This oil is the ultimate solution for anyone suffering with adult acne! This combats aging alongside blemishes by combining Retinol with Salicylic Acid. The formula also includes antioxidants to help your skin defend itself against environmental damage and keeps it hydrated. This is a heavy duty oil that will for sure produce results, but can be too strong for some skin types, so use this if you already have experience with Retinol and know that it doesn’t cause any inflammation.
Facial Purifying Tonic
This is a toner that will aid in reducing inflammation and bacteria with Tea Tree Oil and removes dead skin using Citric Acid and Lactic Acid. This tonic is a great addition to your routine if you have skin that occasionally flares up or if you just want brighter skin and no other step of your routine contains any AHAs or BHAs.
These patches are so different from other acne treatments for several reasons. One being that they have tiny points on the patch that get deeper into your skin which will be seen in Western skincare more in the coming years because it’s so effective at delivering treatments. The other being that these patches dissolve within a couple hours, so you can go to bed with these on and wake up with clear skin. These are made specially for zits that are in their early stages, but the Salicylic Acid and Niacinamide in them will be effective at any point you decide to use them.
