Many wonder if acne skin care and treatment products are necessary for problem skin. The answer is, possibly!
Some of the products that you should buy include:
1. An oil free moisturizer, oil free foundation and an oil free make up remover.
2. A soap-less cleansing bar and a facial wash gel. Soap should not be used on your face because it will strip natural oils away and that will leave you with sensitive skin on top of the acne problem.
3.If persistent blackheads and greasy skin are your issue then you should use a gel or lotion that contains retinoid.
4. If your skin is sensitive and you have blackheads a retinoid cream should be used because a gel or lotion may aggravate the situation.
