PETER THOMAS ROTH AHA/ BHA ACNE CLEARING GEL, RM190
Roth: “You have to use this two to three times every day – and maybe once a day for sensitive skin – even if you don’t have a zit. Most people make the mistake of just using it when they see a pimple, but this also prevents acne. This new formula is matt and not sticky, and it also heals redness.” Available at Sephora.
DERMA RX COMEDONE FORMULA, RM164
Dr. Yip: “This contains botanical extracts that help prevent black and whitehead build-up, also known as comedones, with regular use. Even if it does clog up, it’s easier to extract as it helps loosen the follicular plug. You may still need facials for maintenance, but perhaps you may not need it as often and realise there are less extractions required.” The DRx Clinic. Tel: 03- 6201 3088.
