Dear Friday85,

Thank you for your question.

Good acne skincare is more about the right ingredients rather than the right products. Good skincare need not be expensive. I would aim to look for cleansers and moisturisers or leave-on toners which contain the following agents:

salicylic acid
niacinamide
glycolic acid
tea tree oil
benzoyl peroxide
lactobionic acid
zinc
retinol
retinyl propionate

If despite the regular use of these agents, you are still not getting on top of your skin, i would suggest it is time to seek medical advice. You may need a prescription agent (cream or tablet) to help.

I hope that helps and best of luck.

Anjali
