Acne-Prone Skin Saviors

Hi Dotties, today we’re here to talk about one of the many conversations about acne. Acne can be a nuisance. Whether we sprout an occasional blemish or suffer from severe acne, it becomes the biggest trauma of our lives. We start concealing it like maniacs, rapidly trying new skin care and hiding away from people. One of the biggest mistakes that triggers skin reactions is not sticking to a skincare routine, which further imbalances the skin instead of improving it.

If you are fighting with acne-prone skin, and are in search of treatments that can give you solace, our guide today will help you choose the perfect product for you. These products are especially effective if you have combo-oily skin.


Frequent use of a good face mask can really rejuvenate the skin! Containing eucalyptus, sulfur and clay, this Peter Thomas Roth mask is ideal to give your skin a deep cleanse. It helps to balance the t-zone, exfoliate dead skin, clear clogged pores and absorb excess oil. Also, the added aloe vera in it, soothes the skin, unlike other clay masks, which can be overly drying. It will also prevent future acne. It is widely popular for treating both occasional blemishes and severe acne.


These Cane & Austin acne treatment pads are a combination of glycolic and salicylic acid, which is like a dream come true of a blemished skin. No doubt, a bit on the pricey side, with the container lasting only 1 month, they are definitely worth it. They are to be used twice every day, and your skin will heal tremendously in just a few weeks. These pads combat acne by providing gentle exfoliation. They also deal with blackheads and clogged pores, making skin clearer and smoother.


High in concentration and full of amazing ingredients, serums are perfect for troublesome skin. S5 Purity Serum is specifically designed for congested and acne-prone skin. It contains the wondrous salicylic acid and Amazonian bioactives that cleanse pores, control oil and clear and calm the skin. The serum is very lightweight and suitable for all skin types.

An acne-prone skin always needs a spot treatment. Dab the affected area with a bit of Kate Somerville Eradikate Acne Treatment and the flare up is quickly soothed. This gem in a bottle contains sulfur for fighting blemishes, AHAs to minimize the appearance of pores and zinc oxide to control sebum production. It is hugely effective on blemishes and the gateway to a clear skin. Treat the pimple before you even see it!


This light and watery Sk-II toner infused with AHA and Pitera exfoliates and purifies the skin. When applying, concentrate on your oily areas, it helps remove all grime and prepares your face for the skincare regimen. The toner is very effective in its clarifying properties as it penetrates deep into the skin.


Winner of the Allure Best of Beauty 2014, this is a rich antioxidant serum that moisturizes, brightens and treats troublesome skin. It is known to be deeply hydrating without being oily and heavy. It also adds radiance to the skin and treats aging signs. Priced at a whopping $330, this 3Lab Super “H” Serum might not be in everyone’s budget, but whenever you are up for a rare splurge this is a killer skin savior. It has got nothing but rave reviews about its immediate results.

 Whichever product you pick, remember, skin problems can only be eliminated when you stick to a routine. If you are slathering new products daily, wishing for a miracle, that does not happen. Acne treatment is a gradual process. Stop stressing, be patient and follow the right routine. You will see great results in a matter of time.

Dotfully Yours and Fight on Dotties!
