Anti-Acne Product Heroes

I have been massively breaking out lately and its the kind of acne that is really deep in the skin and it was super painful to the touch. My breakout was mostly in my forehead and on my jaw line and it was not attractive. I think most of my breakout is due to hormonal change but, I have also amped up my skincare to help get rid of my acne. 

 Apart from my the daily makeup removers and cleansers, here are my Anti-acne product heroes.
Human Nature 100% Natural Sunflower Beauty Oil, Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer
Moisturizers and Oils
You may think that putting oil and moisturizer over acne covered skin will worsen the acne but, I found out that it helps in balancing the oil levels of my skin. I have oily skin and I was afraid of using moisturizers, as it turned out I'm breaking out because my skin was so dry and dehydrated. My dermatologist suggest that I used natural products and unscented products because my skin is really sensitive and acne prone. She also stressed the importance of moisturizing because it helps you have somewhat lesser wrinkled face as you get older. I mostly use the Cetaphil in morning after toning and the Sunflower oil at night. 

Here are some of the listed benefits on the Human Nature Sunflower Oil
1. Helps lighten dark undereye circles
2. Helps lighten dark spots & pimple marks
3. Undereye moisturizer
4. Helps prevent & diminish the appearance of stretch marks
5. Helps soften and lighten underarms
6. Softens feet soles, knees & elbows
7. Removes stubborn makeup
8. Overall body moisturizer
9. Helps diminish fine lines around the eyes
10. Helps soften cuticles and dry skin
11. Makes skin glow and helps keep it youthful
12. Helps relax tired, puffy eyes
13. Helps relieve itch & redness caused by insect bites
14. Nourishes & conditions eyelashes
15. Helps lighten dark lips
16. Adds shine to dull hair
17. Helps ease dry & itchy scalp
18. Helps improve skin condition after sunburn
19. Smoothens dry, rough skin from shaving
20. Helps calm skin & ease rashes
21. Helps relieve symptoms of skin infections
22. Helps hydrate dry patches on face
23. Helps lighten lesions and scars

After reading the list I was sold to this product. I haven't used it apart from my face but so far I like that the oil absorbs to my skin in less than 5 minutes and it leaves my skin plump and supple the next morning. So give it a try!
Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, The Face Shop Clear Away Spot 

These two are my life savers because they help dry out and remove the acne faster.  I use the The Face Shop Clear Away Spot every night over those red swelling acne and over night it helps the redness and swelling go down. The Kielh's Clearly Correctly Dark Spot Solution, I use every morning under my makeup to help reduce my hyperigmentation due to acne scars. 

These two are like magic! I can't stress how much I love them and I will never go without them on my vanity.
