Whether you’re a teenager or an adult, acne can be embarrassing and definitely not fun. June is National Acne Awareness month, which means this is the time to finally learn how to beat blemishes and work towards having a flawless complexion.
In the warmer months it’s harder to keep breakouts at bay, so including amazing products to your skin regiment is important. Over washing acne prone skin or scrubbing hard isn’t the answer. Instead it will inflame the skin and create even more breakouts.
Start your acne battle by getting your hands on a Clarisonic and checking out these great acne fighting products.
