Struggling with acne is incredibly frustrating. That's something that people who have never experienced blemishes or blackheads can't understand - it's not remotely a simple problem.
That and your skin is no help either - the smallest aggravation can send your skin into meltdown, and without the right products it seems like breakouts never really leave.
How can I get rid of acne?
Though there isn't a single answer that will work for everyone, it's definitely true to say that a well-balanced routine will help you overcome and prevent blemishes and breakouts.
Balance really is the key - you need something highly effective, but that also isn't so harsh that it will strip your skin's ability to cope with change. Your skin needs to be kept free from bacteria and grime that causes breakouts, but it also needs a healthy microbiome of its own to become more clear and healthy looking.
While you definitely could test and try different products across brands, Kiehl's has created a range designed to work on its own.
We’ve teamed up with the skincare experts at Kiehl’s to share the best routine for tackling acne head-on, featuring their high-performance Blue Herbal range specifically made for acne-prone skin.
Step 1 to clear acne: switch to a detoxifying cleanser
Start your morning and evening beauty routine by ridding your skin of blemish-causing bacteria with the Kiehl’s Blue Herbal Acne Cleanser Treatment. The detoxifying facial wash purifies pores and eliminates excess oils to promote clearer and healthier skin.
Enriched with anti-bacterial and pore-clearing Salicylic Acid to prevent breakouts, Ginger Root Extract to absorb excess oils, and Frankincense to reduce sebum production, this medicated foaming cleanser is perfect for acne-prone skin.
