The 5 Best Skincare Products For Acne You Should Own

Acne-prone skin can be a curse! Thankfully there are many ways to get that oil under control and leave you with flawless, glowing skin. Here are the 5 best skincare products for acne, hyper-pigmentation and scarring!

Holland & Barrett, Alba Acne Face & Body Scrub 227g, £7.99

At Holland & Barett, skincare and environmental care go hand in hand. This daily scrub with 2% salicylic acid is guaranteed to treat oily, acne-prone skin. Made from healthy botanicals, it nonetheless packs a real punch. This scrub boasts an exfoliant of ground walnut shell — perfect for the eco-conscious. Who needs plastic microbeads? Not me!


Vichy, Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel, £12.00

For those who prefer something a little gentler, this cleansing gel by Vichy is ideal. It’s 0.5% salicylic acid enriched eperuline and glycyrrhizinate acid to soothe the skin and prevent inflammation. The gel is designed for use twice daily at the beginning of your skincare routine, leaving your skin smooth and acne-free!

La Roche-Posay, Effaclar Duo+, £12.00

A lot of products designed to treat acne can irritate sensitive skin. This is where this fantastic moisturising cleanser comes in. It’s designed to hydrate as well as cleanse, a godsend for those who cannot tolerate harsher cleansers. You can even buy a tinted version for those who want to incorporate a bit of light BB cream-style coverage into their skincare routine.


The Ordinary Skincare Company, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, £5.00

Not only does this powerful serum reduce sebum production, it also minimises the appearance of blemishes and balances out your skin consistency. For use immediately after cleansing and before your moisturiser, this cheap and wonderfully effective water-based serum is one of the best acne fixes I’ve encountered.

The Ordinary Skincare Company, Retinoids, £4.20-£11.90 depending on strength

This product is a cure, not a prevention. By themselves retinol serums don’t treat acne, but they go a long way towards evening out skin tone and healing the scars left by it, so it’s definitely worthwhile to incorporate one into your skincare routine. The Ordinary Skincare Company sells high quality retinol and retinoids cheaper than anywhere else — the strength depends on your age. See their website for information as to the right serum for you.
