The Best Products For Acne-Prone Skin In 2018

Beauty & Fashion

There are two types of people in the world: those who do everything in their power to prevent breakouts and still manage to get them, and those who can do just about any damnable things in the book of skin care and still manage to wake up with baby smooth skin. Trust me, I know how frustrating it can be, but you can't help the hand we've been dealt if you have acne-prone skin.


The reason behind why certain skin types are more genetically predisposed to inflammation and breakout than others is still unclear in the world of dermatology, but specialists have narrowed it down to one theory: TLR's (toll-like receptors). Their job is to alert your body of any proposed threats and how to handle them, which means that night you fell asleep in your makeup might just cause your body to fight back by producing a pesky pimple the next morning.

Thankfully, brands all over the beauty world are formulating products just for blemish-prone babes to rid their skin of impurities from the inside out. Special ingredients in the newest skin care lines unclog pores, correct dull complexions, and leave the skin glowing. Get your hands on the latest and greatest products just for your acne-prone skin from these Black woman-owned and woman-owned businesses, here:
