Skin Care Products for Acne Prone Skin

April 2, 2017 1 Comments

It can be overwhelming navigating one’s way through the thousands of skin care products all claiming to be the best. With my focus on achieving a clearer skin, I’ve gone through many serums, gels and cleansers with varying results. Trying to find a balance between all-natural ingredients and products that actually work for my skin, here is a list of the products I currently use and love.

Sukin-Oil Balancing Purifying Gel Cleanser ($12.95)

Sukin is one of my favourite skin care brands as they use plant-based ingredients and omit many chemicals commonly found in other skin care products. I use this cleanser in the morning and at night to rid my skin of impurities. This cleanser is made specifically for acne-prone skin. The gel is black with no real smell and it is gentle for sensitive skin like mine.

Sukin- Oil Balancing Mattifying Facial Moisturiser ($12.95)

This moisturiser is in the same Oil Balancing range as the gel cleanser. The moisturiser is a thick white paste but it rubs on clear.

Witch hazel ($6.95)

Found in North America, witch hazel is a plant with great anti-inflammatory properties and is one of the most effective natural acne treatments available. I use witch hazel as an everyday toner in the morning and at night to fight acne and for a clearer face. I place the liquid in a spray bottle for easy usage.

Clinique Superprimer ($50)

I am slightly addicted to primers, and even wear a primer on days that I go makeup- free. This primer, which gives a nice glow to the face and is also colour-correcting, is a thick white gel that is easily applied to the face.

Aesop Chamomile Concentrate Anti-Blemish Masque ($45)

I use this Aesop masque twice a week. It is slightly on the pricy side, but it works wonders for my skin. The Masque is a clay-like colour which becomes transparent on the skin and then turns white when it dries. Because the masque is clear when applied to the skin, I find it difficult to apply an even layer. Also, the masque has a strong smell that I don’t mind, but it does affect some people.
