Common acne, otherwise known as acne vulgaris, is characterized by pimples or zits that appear on the face or body.
Breakouts occur when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. As these glands are responsible for the secretion of sebum, a plugged pore can cause the follicle to bulge, resulting in a whitehead.
Washing your skin with water alone isn’t always enough to get rid of acne. Most skin types require a daily skincare regimen consisting of a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer to keep skin healthy.
If you want to reduce breakouts, try and use these proven-effective skincare products as easy as 1-2-3.
1. Purifying Aza Cleanser
To remove acne, you need a mild yet good quality cleanser that will remove bacteria from the skin before it has the chance to plug your hair follicles. A cleanser should also remove dead cells on the skin which can contribute to breakouts.
