Acne and pimples can be stubborn, so a multi-pronged attack is best. STYLE STORY’s top tips that are easy to follow at home are to:
Removing excess oil from your face can help reduce blemishes by preventing the build-up of dirt and oil in the skin. You can do this by using skincare products that correct the balance of oil and moisture in the skin.
Washing twice daily is necessary for blemish-prone skin types but avoid cleansing more than this. A pH balanced cleanser is best because these work to restore the skin’s barrier, which helps control breakouts.
Washing your face too vigorously will only irritate the skin even further. Use gentle cleansers, and keep exfoliation to a minimum; once or twice a week is plenty.

Especially designed for acne-prone and sensitive skin, this is a mild yet effective way to cleanse the skin of excessive oil and impurities without stripping it.
Many foam cleansers for acne prone skin end up stripping it of much-needed moisture, drying it out and leaving it with that awful squeaky feeling.
Tosowoong Acne Foam Cleansing is different. Not only does it gently care for skin that has become weakened because of acne, it also maintains moisture while cleansing. The result is skin that is less oily but no more sensitive.
Let's be honest - we'd pay pretty much anything to say goodbye to pesky pimples faster.
Thankfully, with Subi's Perfect Pimple Patch we don't have to pay the earth.
A steal at only $11 for 18 patches, these luxury patches are the thinnest, most invisible options on the market. Made with hydrocolloid and zero added ingredients (making them perfect for sensitive skin) these truly are a class above.
If you get pimples in hard-to-reach places (like the side of the nose or around your mouth) then these are your patches. The thinness, stickiness and absorptive powers of Subi's patches means they stay in place long enough to effectively tackle the pimples that other patches can't.
Enriched with Centella Asiatica extract, COSRX's calming Centella Cream helps to soothe sensitive and irritated skin. Two reasons- Centella Asiatica and Zinc Oxide. Both are extremely effective for acne-prone skin, helping to soothe red skin and replenish post-breakout skin.
Rather than applying it over your whole face like a moisturiser, we recommend only using it on affected areas.
This skin soothing, acne fighting treatment has been a favourite product in Korean skincare circles for years. That's because the formula not only calms and strengthens skin, it also keeps breakouts at bay.
Dr Ceuracle Tea Tree 95 Essence is a lightweight essence made with a potent concentration of 95% Tea Tree extract. It helps to soothe and hydrate blemish-prone, sensitive, irritated, and troubled skin. This is one of the most potent tea tree treatments in skincare.
We notice the difference most when we stop using this essence - all of a sudden our skin becomes more prone to breakouts and redness lingers for longer.
This moisturiser is ideal for providing irritation-free care to acne prone and sensitive skin types. The formula is perfect to use on a daily basis to calm, soothe and improve troubled skin. Whether you are dealing with acne spots or scars, this is a great addition to your skincare routine.
We love it for acne prone skin to create healthier, more hydrated skin.
