We have family photos scheduled this weekend, so naturally I’m breaking out more than usual. Just my luck! It’s not the here today, gone tomorrow blemishes either. It’s the kind that seem to linger around for days. After trying numerous products that over promise and under deliver, I’ve found two skincare products for breakouts that are worth the hype. I don’t use them everyday, but definitely keep them on hand for the occasional breakout.
For years, I didn’t think cleansers mattered because they are on your face for such a short period of time. I thought it was better to invest in serums and moisturizers that stay on your face. I was wrong. The Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel absolutely changed my opinion. I bought it for anti-aging, but it was the first time I noticed my face looking brighter. It also contains glycolic and salicylic acids which helps clarify. I use it when my skins starts to feel dull and for breakouts like I’m having now. It’s also great for exfoliation.
My other go-to product for blemishes is also a Peter Thomas Roth product. The Max Complexion Correction Pads help clear up my skin better than any other acne treatment I’ve tried. An added bonus, they have a fresh peach scent!
Max Complexion Correction Pads have glycolic acid and 2% salicylic acid so I only use them when I’m having a breakout. After I wash my face at night, I use one pad so the active ingredients can clear up my skin while I’m sleeping. I prefer to use them at night so I’m not following the treatment with makeup. A standard size jar comes with 60 pads, so it lasts awhile. You can also cut the pads in half to make them last even longer!
What are your favorite products for breakouts? It’s so nice to find something that actually works!!
