5 Secret Weapons for Fighting Acne

Spring is here! It’s time for a fresh start for everything, including your skin! Valley’s got you covered with five secret weapons to help you fight acne!

Clearasil Daily Clear Hydra-Blast Oil-Free Pads

You will be amazed at how much dirt these pads can remove from your face. You think you take off all of your makeup with your makeup remover wipes, but these babies can really get all of the dirt, oil, and leftover foundation out of your pores. Plus, this formula won’t be overly drying on your skin.

Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask

This stuff is the real deal. Use it as a 10-minute mask or as an overnight spot treatment. While this mask can be slightly drying, you can count on it to step up to the plate in an acne-emergency situation. It visibly reduces spot-size and redness in one use.

Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-On Mask

There’s nothing worse than covering up your acne with concealer and feeling like you’re just clogging your pores even more. Good news! This is a mask you can leave on during the day underneath your makeup. This way, you can fight your acne 24/7.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion

Sometimes with acne, it feels like all you want to do is dry out your skin as much as possible with every astringent you can get your hands on. In reality, overly-drying products can cause your skin to overcompensate, producing excess oil and clogging your pores even more. This dermatologist-recommended moisturizer is your solution to the problem. Balance is key.  If this isn’t enough to convince you, check out this Good Housekeeping article about what can happen to your skin when you don’t use moisturizer.

Biore Self-Heating One Minute Mask

If blackheads are your main concern, this one-minute mask will do the trick. This is like the next-level version of the Biore Deep-Cleansing Pore Strips. Plus, the self-heating formula is totally spa-night worthy. #TreatYoSelf
