I remember the days of being so desperate for my acne to be gone that I would try every product available without even glancing at the ingredient deck. It's supposed to cure my acne right? Let me slather it on! Why would I think for a second that this product MADE for acne would have anything in it that could make it worse? So innocent and trusting...but now I know better and you will too!
I want to stress the importance of checking the ingredients on every single product that touches your skin! Below are 4 products that are targeted specifically for acne yet they all contain pore-cloggers! The very product that you are trusting to help with your acne could actually be aggravating it.
Clearasil Daily Clear Acne Treatment Cream
-Contains Isopropyl Myristate and Glyceryl Stearate SE
ZAPYZT Acne Treatment Gel
Dermae Very Clear Acne Spot Treatment
-Contains Cetearyl Alcohol + Ceteareth 20
Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Spot Treatment

It's no wonder that it seems so impossible to get clear skin. Let me be your guide - every product that I recommend will be acne-safe, I promise.
