5 best exfoliators for acne prone skin

Exfoliation products can be a godsend. They remove layers of dead skin cells, as well as built-up dirt, grime and makeup, leaving fresh and more radiant skin underneath. As a result, they are also hugely helpful in assisting the absorption of the active and targeted ingredients in our serums and moisturisers. In saying that, exfoliation products are commonly overused, as well as being known for their ability to strip and sensitise skin.

Having acne-prone skin means you are likely already aware of all of the above and have probably had a love-hate relationship with exfoliants over the years. To take the hate aspect (or at least the trial and error aspect) out of exfoliating but still reap the benefits, we have rounded up the best exfoliant products for acne-prone skin. See below a mix of physical and chemical exfoliants we love:


Pixi Glow Tonic

Chemical exfoliants are often the way to go with acne-prone skin and this particular one is a favourite. Combining AHAs and aloe vera and ginseng, this formula deeply exfoliates, soothes, hydrates and accelerates cell turnover. Plus, it’s gentle enough to use everyday. Find it at lookfantastic.com.au

Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser

Utilising salicylic acid to deeply penetrate and decongest the pore, glycolic acid to speed up the process of cell turnover and lactic acid to keep skin hydrated, this exfoliator is a sure fire way to smoother and brighter skin. Try using this once a week initially and build up to two to three times a week. Find it here

La Mer Replenishing Oil Exfoliator

While those with oily skin may be terrified of oil, it is actually sometimes the key to keeping your skin’s sebum production under control. This exfoliator in particular melts away impurities, while using sea salt and sugar crystals to gently buff away dead skin cells. Also, in typical La Mer style, this product is formulated with sea kelp which acts like a textured cloth in drawing out dirt and grime. Find it here.

Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14%

Made specifically for acne-prone skin, this cleanser is formulated with 14% glycolic acid, plus jojoba beads and tea tree oil for the perfect combination of physical and chemical exfoliation. Similarly, try using once a week initially and build up use over time. Find it at adorebeauty.com.au

 

Paula’s Choice CLEAR Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid

With powerhouse acne ingredient salicylic acid, this leave-on exfoliating solution works to unclog pores and fade red marks. Find it here.

  1. I do like to exfoliate my skin even though I do not suffer acne. I do get pimples occasionally though. There are some great exfoliating products available, always coming out with new ones.

  2. I felt so blessed again in my marriage after marvelspelltemple@gmail.com brought back my wife that separated for 5 months.

  3. Testimony By Debra Tonny. How to get your ex back fast! I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband . so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore. So he packed out of the house and made me and my children pass through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back, after much begging, but all to no avail. and he confirmed it that he has made his decision, and he never wanted to see me again. So one evening, as I was coming back from work, I met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So I explained everything to him, so he told me that the only way I can get my husband back, is to visit a priest, because it has really worked for him too. So I never believed in spells, but I had no other choice, than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the Email address of the priest whom he visited. awesomespelltemple@gmail.com. So the next morning, I sent a mail to the address he gave to me, and the priest assured me that I will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed, so he spoke with me, and told me everything that I needed to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, by the help of a priest.

     My name is MICHEAL RACHEL. When I read a testimony online on how DR DAVID the great and most powerful spell caster helped to bring back Divorce husband or wife EX LOVER. I was wondering how this can be true, Because many have failed me in the past without any result from them. I just let the post pass by and move on to the forum. To my notice under again, Some person posted and said tested and trusted spell caster. After reading through the mail it was this same man DR DAVID she was talking about. So I have no other option than to really check up how he works. I was totally devastated when my beloved husband left me. It was like my entire world vanishing into sorrow and pain. I know it sounds weird but out of all the spell casters I contacted, he was the only one to give me that impression of being so true and trustful. More than his words, He brought my husband back and he made all my wishes come true. He is now loyal, pays attention to me, he offers me flowers every Sunday, and we often go out at the cinema and the restaurant. My husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. I will be forever thankful for turning my life from hell to heaven! I believe those who need help should get to him for help. May God continue to use you to save broken relationships.
