The Drug Store Remedy for Acne Prone Skin

Author : Alexandria Traylor |


Your face is the first thing others see when they look at you. Your face is your main palette for expression. When you consistently have facial acne or a random breakout session, it can change the face of your confidence and even leave scars and dark marks long after the blemish is over. I have lived with the plague of acne since I was in the 4th grade with break outs and believe that I found great drug store products that work fantastically.


  1. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub

The St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub is the foundation product in my skin care routine. This scrub will literally change the texture of your face. Underneath the dead skin level, is where you will be able to uncover the soft supple skin that you really want. This scrub does it all, exfoliates as well as cleanses with an extra boost of salicylic acid for treating those stubborn areas of acne and it’s safe to use every day!


  1. Queen Helen Mint Julep Masque

The Queen Helen Mint Julep Masque is beyond the This poor refining mask allows your skin to be in its freshest state possible. In this way, your pores are open and exposed to the deep cleansing effects of the masque treatment. The Mint Julep Masque takes about 15 minutes in order to harden completely. Use this product at least once a week.


  1. Ambi Skincare Fade Cream for Oily Skin

There are two reasons why I fell in love with the Ambi Fade Cream for Oily Skin. The formula is super hydrating to my skin without causing my normal to oily skin to not become even more oily by the end of the day. There are also sunscreen properties infused within the cream. The fade cream is also safe to wear underneath your daily makeup.


  1. Mederma Advanced Scar Gel

As one of the most expensive products in my list, this product really works! The original purpose for the Mederma Advanced Scar Gel is to fade healed scars from surgical procedures, burns, and falls. The gel consistency is extremely light so a small amount really does go a long way. The Mederma Scar Gel was successfully able to fade old and new acne scars.


  1. Water

Water is the basis for our cellular make up. Water has the capability to keep our skin vibrant and feeling soft and supple. Water is literally the miracle game changer. Drinking water will increase your urinary output and therefore assist in flushing out toxins from your blood stream. An increased water intake will also improve circulation to all parts of your body, including your face.
