Best Acne Fighting Products | Dermatologist at the Drugstore | Harper's BAZAAR

today I'm going to show you my favorite

pics for treating acne right here at the

drugstore so let's go

there are few things you're going to

want to avoid if you have acne-prone or

oily skin avoid products that contain


mineral oil or all oils in general these

serve to clog the pores and over time it

can cause acne you're going to want to

look for a cleanser that contains

salicylic acid an example of this is


pore refining daily cleanser and if you

have oily or acne-prone skin you want to

look for a more of a liquid cleanser

that foams as opposed to a creamier

cleanser so this is an example of a

cleanser that contains both both alpha

and beta hydroxy acid one of my favorite

treatments for acne and or oily skin and

large pores is the Garnier line

particularly the Garnier blackhead

eliminating scrub what this does is it

exfoliates using microbeads as it

delivers salicylic acid which also

exfoliates the skin and actually gets

into the bores to reduce the appearance

of oil so it's very effective for

reducing oily skin as well as for

targeting the appearance of acne

a lot of times people do get inflamed by

benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid but

they still need treatment for their acne

my favorite ingredient for this is

sulfur and it's hard to find but if you

look you can find products that contain

sulfur and this is a sulfur mask that

you could leave on overnight and I

promise you by the morning your acne

will be improved look for a moisturizer

that does not contain petrolatum or any

form of oil and look for a product that

actually says non-athlete genic or non

comedogenic on the package itself one of

my favourite brands to recommend for my

patients is CeraVe therapy is a very

bland moisturizer that will not break

out my acne patients and so it makes for

a great go-to for a bland moisturizer

that will keep your skin hydrated but

you don't have to worry about clogged
