Skincare Routine for Acne Prone Skin using Products from Dr Lin Skincare

For the last two months I have been dealing with what appears to be acne. I’ve never had acne, however, I get the occasional hormonal breakout but nothing that a quick application of my go-to pimple reducing solution and mask couldn’t fix.  This breakout has not been so easy to deal with and I am left experimenting to find a solution. Treating acne is different for everyone, so, something that works for your BFF might not work for you and vice versa.  It is also interesting that products with the same active anti-acne ingredient might work differently on your skin. In short, you have to play around with various products and ingredients to find the thing that is right to treat for your acne.  This is no easy task, with this in mind, I’d like to introduce you to Dr Lin Skincare and share some tips from the brand for treating acne using their products.

Dr. Lin Skincare features a 2-step Acne Clarifying system that uses a  proprietary blend of benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and natural active botanicals to provide continuously clear, beautiful skin.

Start your routine with Dr. Lin Skincare 2-Step Acne Clarifying System, complete with Daily Cleanser, Acne Lotion and bonus Acne Spot Corrector to treat and prevent breakouts. Contains top acne fighting ingredients like 2% Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide. Step 1 includes washing with the Daily Cleanser, formulated with 2% Salicylic Acid to deep clean and purify clogged pores. Follow with the Step 2 Acne Lotion, packed with benzoyl peroxide to kill acne-causing bacteria. Shrink unexpected breakouts fast with the bonus Acne Spot Corrector. The entire system contains Arbutin, found in the bearberry tree plant to reduce inflammation and prevent and fade marks.

To take your acne fighting up a notch, show your skin some extra TLC with the Acne Cleansing Pads and Acne Cleansing Wipes for a gentle exfoliation that rids pores of blockage and helps remove makeup.  Best for use after cleansing, 2% Salicylic Acid penetrates deep, ridding the skin of impurities.   Skin will feel ultra-clean and the convenient packaging makes them perfect to take on-the-go!

    great post! I dealt with bad hormonal acne my entire teens and early 20′s and even now, I deal with occasional breakouts, but I’ve discovered some products that actually do help my skin heal quickly and stay calm. I’ve done a guide for acne prone skin too if you’re curious about more products!

  2. Thanks, Tianna! The only thing I have used from your list is the clarisonic, which I love! Once I get the breakout under control I will definitely do a post featuring the products that worked.

    Neutrogena pink grapefruit scrub, clearasil salicylic face pads the emergency ones and 10%benzoyl peroxide or la Roche posay effaclar duo keeps me in control of the acne. Very in control.
