The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
Niacinamide (a.k.a. Vitamin B3) can be used to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. Plus, it is also an effective ingredient for brightening skin tone. So, you can be sure that this product will lighten those dark spots and give you even-looking skin. For this, you would need to apply it to your entire face in the mornings and evenings before applying any other heavy moisturizers. Take note though that this can only be applied to unbroken skin!
Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner
The first-ever toner designed to reduce acne in just hours, this product will give you more even-toned skin. This toner includes Glycolic Acid, which accelerates surface skin cell exfoliation and fades the look of acne scars. You just need to cover the infected area with a thin layer of this product. Depending on your skin, you can apply this 1-3 times daily, but make sure to not apply too much because you might get dry skin.
Differin Gel Adapalene Gel 0.1% Acne Treatment
This product takes a different approach to treating acne – it prevents it! It includes adapalene, which treats acne deep in the pores and prevents new acne from forming! As a result of reduced acne, it restores your skin tone and texture. To get the best results, apply a thin layer of Differin Gel once every day all over your face, and say hello to long-term smooth skin!
CeraVe Resurfacing Retinol Serum
Containing encapsulated retinol, which speeds up your skin’s exfoliation process, and licorice root extract to brighten your skin’s appearance, this product will help you restore your smooth and healthy-looking complexion! Just apply it evenly to your face daily, and if there’s any discomfort when you first apply it, space out your applications until your skin adjusts to the product. Easy peasy!
