Underrated K-Beauty Products To Try For Acne

If you're suffering from acne then you'll know first hand the struggle to find products that don't aggravate it. Thankfully, Korean skincare has a buffet of gentle options that help care for acne-prone skin without setting it off further. 

What Causes Acne?

Acne occurs when pores clog with dead skin cells and sebum. When the clog occurs near the top layers of the skin, whiteheads or blackheads form. Deeper clogs cause pimples and acne cysts.

How Can You Get Rid Of Acne?

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:

1 Control excess oil

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.

2 Wash your face twice a day

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.

 

3 Avoid harsh scrubbing

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.

Underrated K-Beauty Products To Try For Acne - Subi Perfect Pimple Patch

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.
