I understand all too well waking up to find a large, atrocious eruption on your face. An unwelcome and displeasing sight with the pairing of worrying how it got there. Acne has been a frequent guest of mine and one that I’ve become all too familiar with. And so, I’ve compiled some of my best remedies and treatments to bust those blemishes away.
Personally, I’m not a fan of cleansers with strong formulations meant to target acne as these tend to dry the skin and lead to other issues. I prefer ones that effectively clean the skin without stripping it of its natural oils.
Dr. Alkaitis Purifying Facial Cleanser
It’s gel formula cleans deep, to clear out bacteria and nastiness that can be causing zits to sprout.
YÜLI Halcyon Cleanser
So gentle, it feels like you are using water, yet one of the most effective cleansers I’ve ever used.
Soapwalla Kitchen Glycerin Soap Activated Charcoal & Petitgrain
If you are more a fan of soaps, than this is the perfect one for acne-prone skin. The powerhouse ingredient is the activated bamboo charcoal, which has detoxifying properties to help diminish your spots. I also mentioned this product in another post.
The essential toner is the facial triple threat: soothing, toning, and balancing.
YÜLI Panacea Elixir
The word panacea is defined as a cure-all, and that’s exactly what this facial elixir is.
Pai Rice Plant & Rosemary BioAffinity Toner
This formula is rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that work to balance and nourish your skin.
A good treatment should contain ingredients that are known to be anti-inflammatory, healing, clearing, and promote skin rejuvenation.
Osmia Organics Spot Treatment
A healing, pure roll-on treatment that effectively vanquishes the enemy-without leaving any battle scars.
Dr. Alkaitis Organic Soothing Gel
Oh my soothing goodness. This lightweight gel is loaded with calming, antibacterial ingredients to reduce inflammation and redness right away. This versatile beauty can be used as a toner, spot treatment, after-shave gel, and light moisturizer.
YÜLI Pure Treatment Mask
Another win by YÜLI (though it seems all their products are holy grail status), this potent mask will draw out impurities with the help of mineral-rich clay, gently exfoliate with fruit enzymes, and soothe and heal the skin with ingredients like mung bean, rose, francincense, white willow bark, and cucumber.
Indie Lee Blemish Stick
For those wanting instant gratification, this little gem will diminish the appearance of zits overnight, without any dryness or irritation. I also mentioned it in this post about my ANFGB picks.
Raw Manuka Honey
Honey is known to be very beneficial for blemishes due to its extreme healing properties. I like adding raw manuka honey to masks and many other DIYS as it is also loaded with many vitamins and minerals.
