Top 5 skincare products

1. Differin Gel 

Differin Gel is the only FDA-approved over-the-counter retinoid, which is a prominent and effective anti-aging and anti-acne ingredient derived from Vitamin A. For me, Differin Gel has worked at reducing acne, minimizing scars, and being wallet-friendly. Genuine lifesaver. 

2. Pharamgel Pharma Clear Acne Treatment

This product uses salicylic acid, which treats acne by reducing redness and swelling and clearing pores This spot treatment does a great deal to eliminate breakouts. The formula is clean, absorbs easily into the skin, and works well with other products. 

3. La Rosh-Posay Salicylic Acid Acne Wash 

This cleanser features 2% salicylic acid and gentle lip-hydroxy acid that exfoliates despite giving a soft lather, treating acne, smoothing skin texture, cleansing the face of excess oil, and using glycerin to restore moisture lost from acne treatments. 

4. La Rosh-Posay Tolerlane Double Repair Moisturizer 

Yeah, this is the stuff every commercial is going off about. In their defense, it actually helps restore the skin barrier with essential ceramides and a prebiotic, provides moisture in a lightweight cream formula, and soothes skin, regardless of sensitivity. 

5. Murad Oil and Pore Control Sunscreen 

If you’re not using sunscreen, what are you doing? That big evil yellow thing in the sky causes 90% of signs of aging, including redness, blotchiness, and uneven texture and tone. This stuff helps with that and provides effective oil control for all my fellow oily-skin people.
