HOW TO TREAT ACNE-PRONE SKIN

If it feels like you're constantly breaking out, you're not alone: it's the most common skin condition in the US!

Whether you're seeing breakouts, clogged pores, or little white bumps called comedones, acne can take a real hit on your confidence. And while there's no "cure," there are powerful ingredients that can zap zits and prevent them from popping up again.

Build your acne-friendly skin regimen below.

Step-By-Step




Step One: A DEEP CLEANSE

Sure, cleansers have shorter contact with your face than other products — but they're just as important (if not more!). Start with a Salicylic Acid based cleanser to unclog pores and prevent new breakouts.

  • Oily Skin
  • Acne-Prone
Make a clear difference with this creamy exfoliating cleanser. The non-foaming formula helps clear away dirt, oil and debris that can lead to breakouts and blackheads—without leaving skin tight or dry. A blend of Salicylic, Glycolic and Lactic Acids sweep away build-up on skin’s surface, and penetrate deep inside pores to unclog oil and impurities.




Step Two: LIGHTLY HYDRATE

Moisturizer can feel counter-intuitive if you're breakout-prone or dealing with oily skin. But (trust us) it's actually going to help balance oil production and keep shine under control.

  • Oily Skin
  • Acne-Prone
A lightweight, oil-controlling gel moisturizer that won't break you out. Fast-absorbing Snow Algae provides hydration without leaving the skin feeling weighed down or greasy. Antioxidant-rich Cloudberry works to visibly brighten the skin, while caffeine improves puffiness and circulation.




Step Three: EXFOLIATE, RENEW + REPAIR

It's Madison's favorite for a reason! This super-charged night serum contains a 1% retinoid to stimulate cell turnover, reduce the appearance of breakouts, and brighten pigmentation. Plus, there's no need to stress about irritation — we've added nourishing Vitamin E to keep skin soothed and healthy.

  • Oily Skin
  • Acne-Prone
Formulated with 1% Granactive Retinoid, this silky overnight serum reduces the appearance of blemishes (and prevents new ones from forming!), visibly brightens up dullness and discoloration, and helps smooths the look of rough texture from past breakouts. Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid work synergistically to reveal a clearer, smoother, and brighter complexion.
