Tips For Clear Skin — How To Get Rid Of Acne
Dr. Doris Day tells HollywoodLife.com readers that you should, “switch off cleansing daily with a benzoyl peroxide wash, for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits, and a 2% salicylic wash to exfoliate.”
She also prescribes ACZONE Gel to patients with more persistent and severe cases.
One salicylic acid face wash I love is the Olay Fresh Effects Clear Skin Acne Hater Deep Scrub Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Deep Scrub, Citrus/Mint. It’s super gentle, so it won’t irritate skin, and it smells amazing! I also love the Towelettes and Pore Reducing Mattifier from the same family.
More Of My Favorite Acne Products & Expert Tips
Skin expert and celebrity favorite Kate Somerville recommends her ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment for clear, bright skin. She tells HollywoodLife.com readers:
“After cleansing, every treatment at my clinic starts with ExfoliKate! Why? The dry, dead layer that sits on the skin’s surface not only dulls the complexion, it also prevents products from absorbing effectively and can make the texture of skin look uneven. Exfoliation will help skin look brighter, smoother and more even. It also sets the stage for flawless makeup application. I recommend exfoliating twice a week. Look for products with Fruit Enzymes and round, smooth beads. That way, you experience the benefits from both physical and chemical exfoliation.”
