I can remember the first time I got a bright-red painful pimple- it was the morning of fifth grade graduation, and I was not happy. Because my oily skin has given me many inconvenient blemishes since then, I've developed an acne toolkit to fight off these breakouts.
While everyone's skin is different, I've noticed my complexion's adoration for acids and dislike of benzoyl peroxide and created a regimen that keeps me (mostly) clear of blemishes. In addition to using these acne-fighting ingredients, I always make sure to moisturize and use SPF protection.
Ahead, you'll see the products I always have on hand to keep from feeling like a sad 10-year-old with a pimple on her big day.
