When you left your teen years, you probably thought you would also outgrow the problem skin that plagued your adolescence. What a shock then, when the dreaded pimple rears its ugly (black)head again and returns for a second run at your face.
If you’re suffering from life’s second round of blemishes, we have 4 dos and don’ts for tackling problem skin:
Do: Keep It Clean
Why? Cleansing the skin removes bacteria that get into clogged hair follicles and may lead to breakouts. Recommended by Skin Inc. magazine, our Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser is an obvious choice for breakout sufferers as it contains sweet almond milk and yogurt that work to reduce the visible signs of problem skin.

Don’t: Scrub Your Face
Why? Scrubbing your face can irritate skin and aggravate inflammation. Help ease problem skin by using a gentle cleanser and rinsing with lukewarm water. (About Health)
Do: Apply Healing Serums
Why? Our Clear Skin Willow Bark Booster-Serum helps heal the appearance of irritation to leave skin looking purified and detoxified. Fit[TBD] recommends our serum to treat problem skin: “This acne-averter contains willow bark and tea tree oil to POW pimples.”
Don’t : Pick Your Skin
Why? Hands off! Squeezing or picking inflammations can lead to infection and scars. Irritating your pimples not only causes greater skin problems, but can also trigger the spread of blemishes. (webMD)
