3 Best Acne Fighting Ingredients

Best Acne Fighting Ingredients

Acne has a knack for wreaking havoc on our confidence and its unwelcome presence knows no bounds, popping up at the most inconvenient times. From pesky pimples to stubborn blackheads, acne can leave us feeling frustrated and self-conscious, as we desperately search for solutions to tame its unruly nature. The constant battle against breakouts can be a source of endless annoyance, as we navigate a maze of skincare products and treatments in hopes of achieving clear, blemish-free skin. Yet, despite our best efforts, acne often continues, serving as a persistent reminder of its frustrating and unpredictable nature.

So in the battle against breakouts, there are three powerhouse acne fighting ingredients that stand out for their prowess: enzymes, salicylic acid, and vitamin B.


3 Best Acne Fighting Ingredients


Enzymes – acne fighting exfoliators

Enzymes, nature’s gentle exfoliators work wonders in tackling acne by sloughing away dead skin cells and unclogging pores. Derived from fruits like papaya and pineapple, these natural enzymes delicately dissolve the build-up of debris and excess oil on the skin’s surface, revealing a smoother, clearer complexion beneath. Their gentle nature makes them suitable for even the most sensitive of skin types, offering a gentle yet effective solution for preventing and treating acne without causing irritation.

Enzymes can be found in cleansers and exfoliators – we have our very own acne range coming out soon, and all enzyme based. But in the meantime, we recommend these products that incorporate this powerful acne-fighting ingredient:

Osmosis Purify enzyme Cleanser to wash the face and Aspect Fruit Enzyme Mask as a weekly to twice weekly exfoliator.


Salicylic Acid – oily skin saviour

Salicylic Acid, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA), is renowned for its ability to penetrate deep into the pores, where it works its magic by dissolving sebum and exfoliating the skin from within. By removing dead skin cells and excess oil, salicylic acid helps to prevent clogged pores and breakouts, while also reducing inflammation and redness associated with acne. Its oil-soluble properties make it particularly effective for oily and acne-prone skin types, helping to control shine and keep breakouts at bay. You’ll find this acne fighting ingredient in many products and we recommend for acne, such as:

Cosmedix Purity Balance as a toner.


Vitamin B – boosting your results

Vitamin B, specifically niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3), is a multitasking marvel when it comes to oil control and acne management. Not only does niacinamide help regulate sebum production, thereby reducing excess oiliness and shine, but it also boasts anti-inflammatory properties that can calm and soothe irritated skin. Additionally, niacinamide helps to strengthen the skin’s natural barrier function, enhancing its ability to retain moisture and protect against external aggressors. With regular use, this powerhouse vitamin can help to improve the overall health and resilience of the skin, making it less prone to breakouts and blemishes.  We have our own Vitamin B serum arriving soon, but we also love:

Aspect Dr Multi B Plus.


Incorporating products containing these acne fighting ingredients into your skincare routine can make a world of difference in the quest for clearer, healthier skin. Whether you opt for a gentle enzyme-based cleanser or exfoliant, a salicylic acid-infused toner, or a vitamin B-rich serum, these powerhouse ingredients are sure to leave your complexion looking radiant and blemish-free. So bid farewell to pesky pimples and embrace the transformative power of enzymes, salicylic acid, and vitamin B for oil control and acne prevention. Your skin will thank you for it!
