While some of us are fortunate enough to outgrow acne and problem skin, the rest will need acne treatments to tackle recurring outbreaks and blemishes well into our twenties, thirties and beyond. This is a list of the best top-of-the-line products for acne and problem skin on the market right now to help you zap the sore spots out of your life.
Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser – 212ml Pump
Dissolving impurities and eradicating acne forming bacteria, Exuviance’s Clarifying Facial Cleanser reaches deep into the skin’s pores to tackle the problem at its source. Infused with skin antioxidants and conditioners, this scientific formula improves skin texture and soothes the skin with its non-irritating ingredients. This facial cleanser also contains Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA), used for its anti-aging properties.
Medik8 Hydr8 B5 – 30ml
Medik8 Hydra B5 contains Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) and Hyaluronic Acid to boost the skin’s moisture levels so that the outer dermis layer does not harden and trap in oil to produce acne. By providing 24-hour moisture to skin in need of hydration, Vitamin B5/Pantothenic Acid specifically heals wounds and improves the overall appearance of the skin.
Exuviance Purifying Clay Masque – 50g
Best teamed with Exuviance’s Clarifying Facial Cleanser, the Purifying Clay Masque is a cooling and detoxifying treatment that balances the skin’s moisture levels, leaving you with a smoother and brighter complexion. The masque contains Polyhydroxide that hydrates the skin to keep its suppleness, while other active ingredients purify and pamper the overall appearance of the skin.
Jan Marini Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser – 236ml
A calming and soap-free formula, Jan Marini Skin’s Research Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser is infused with glycolic acid which encourages new cell generation while creating a much softer and more refined skin texture. This cleanser deep-cleanses by freeing pores of clogged impurities and acne-producing bacteria while also containing humectant – a natural ingredient derived from berries, to leave your skin clear-looking, fresh and plump.
Medik8 PoreCleanse – 150ml
A popular day-to-day exfoliant and cleaner, PoreCleanse contains a dual action formula that allows for optimal results without any irritation to the skin. The inclusion of AHA-mandelic acid (which has similar capabilities to glycolic acid), enables the cleanser to penetrate the pores more effectively, eliminating any acne development. With antibacterial ingredients such as tea tree oil, PoreCleanse not only prevents a whole range of acne related skin problems, it also smells great without the use of manufactured perfumes.
