Dr. Wright’s Tip
Acing acne can be difficult at any age; however, elaboration on the 4 basic steps will give you more insight to accomplish this task.

1. Keep Your Pores Unclogged:

Cleanse your skin morning and night using a mild acne soap or cleanser.

Exfoliate lightly. Remember this is for the non-sensitive skin. This will help improve skin texture and tone. (Acne All-in-one Cleanser,  Prévia  Purifying Cleanser)

2. Reduce Oil Production And Bacteria:

Consider brands that consist of salicylic acid and benzyl peroxide, which are both proven ingredients to fight and prevent acne. (BP Scrub, Exfoliating Cleanser)

3. Moisturize And Protect:

The products you use to moisturize with should be low in or free from oil and alcohol. (Rehydration Complex with Vitamin C, Ultra Hydration Moisturizer)

4. Camouflage:
