HERE’S A QUICK, SIMPLE PRIMER ON HOW TO CARE FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN
Wash Twice Daily With A Facial Cleanser Containing Salicylic Acid
Salicylic Acid facial cleansers are important for two primary reasons:
(1) Salicylic Acid is soluble in sebum. This allows the Salicylic Acid to penetrate into the hair follicle and dissolve in the sebum.
(2) Salicylic Acid coats the dead skin cells in the hair follicle so they do not become sticky and plug the hair follicle.

Take Dietary Supplements
Supplements are essential to restore deficiencies commonly found in the sebum of acne-prone skin and to help reduce the production of excess sebum, the root cause of acne.
Essential dietary supplements include Vitamin A, C, D3, E, Pantothenic Acid, Omega-3, High Linoleic Sunflower Powder, Green Tea Extract, L-carnitine and Zinc.
