Ingredients To Include in an Acne-Fighting Routine

  • "Acne, like other skin conditions, is a deficiency in the skin barrier,” says Dr. Marchbein, who also advises that “products that contain ceramides can actually help to restore the skin barrier.”
  • Benzoyl Peroxyde is effective, generally well-tolerated, and may help kill acne-causing bacteria. According to Dr. Marchbein, “it’s one of the most powerful acne ingredients that we have.” CeraVe's Acne Foaming Cleanser is a gentle and non-irritating cleanser with benzoyl peroxide, This foaming cleanser helps clear up whiteheads, blackheads, and acne pimples, and helps prevent new acne blemishes from forming.
  • By effectively penetrating deep into pores, salicylic acid can help to eliminate pore-clogging materials, like dead skin cells. Keeping pores free from debris, oils, and bacteria is an essential part of minimizing acne, especially blackheads and whiteheads.  “Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid, which means that it goes deep down into the pores to help unclog them, and can gently exfoliate the skin,” says Dr. Marchbein.
