June is National Acne Awareness month, which arrives just in time for the summer breakouts that seem to plague us all. Here are the products you need to fight acne morning, noon and night.
If you’ve been blessed with acne-free skin, you probably take for granted what the rest of us seemingly dedicate our lives trying to achieve — a clear, even skin tone. For those of us who do suffer from acne (an estimated 80% of people according to Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology), be it chronic or occasional breakouts, the latest skincare advancements make it easier to treat than ever before. Read up on our acne-fighting tips, and shop our gallery for the latest in blemish banishing products.
In The Morning: To start fighting acne the moment you roll out of bed, begin by washing your face with X Out Acne Wash-In Treatment. The all-in-one cleansing, exfoliating and toning product contains a hefty 8.5% benzoyl peroxide to heal existing acne and clear pores, as well as a specially designed moisture complex to keep the skin from getting dried out.
In The Afternoon: If you have acne, you’re familiar with the struggle of wanting to put makeup on to cover up your existing breakouts. All of this makeup, of course, tends to lead to even more acne, creating a viscous cycle that requires endless amounts of concealer and foundation. To help fight acne while helping your makeup sit more evenly on inflamed skin better, apply Jouer Anti Blemish Matte Primer before your foundation.

At Night: To give a deep down, gentle cleanse to skin at night, use the Clarisonic Acne Clarifying Collection, which ensures all of your makeup is removed as it washes away acne-causing bacteria. You can also help clear body acne by washing with Proactiv+ Cleansing Body Bars, which can be used on the face as well.
