Face & Body

1 Pe­ter Thomas Roth Blem­ish Buff­ing Beads, £26 Sun cream, sweat and pol­lu­tion won’t just cause your face to flare up but your body too. Use this sweet- smelling scrub all over and you’ll quickly put an end to the stress­ful spot cy­cle. Blem­ish-bust­ing sal­i­cylic acid clears away dirt, while the blend of jo­joba beads and aloe means it won’t ir­ri­tate your skin.

Break­outs & Bac­te­ria

2 Foreo Es­pada Blue Light Acne Treat­ment, £129 We know this may seem a tad pricey, but top­i­cal creams don’t get to the bac­te­ria deep down in the skin, which is why spots can keep com­ing back. Count on this hand­held zit zap­per to bring blem­ishes down as soon as they ap­pear and keep them at bay for good. The power of light ther­apy, usu­ally only found at a der­ma­tol­o­gist’s clinic, in the palm of your hand – neat, huh?

stop se­bum & mois­turise

3 Cir­ca­dia Day­time Con­trol Lo­tion, £38 A big prob­lem with the break­out bat­tle is find­ing a mois­turiser that keeps your skin hy­drated with­out clog­ging pores. This clever lo­tion works in sync with your body’s in­ter­nal rhythms, reg­u­lat­ing se­bum through­out the day and work­ing harder at times when your body pro­duces more (think shiny post-lunch skin). Add in a pow­er­ful an­timi­cro­bial pep­tide and you’re on your way to a softer, clearer com­plex­ion ASAP.

hide & heal

4 Zo Skin Health Of­fects Cor­rect & Con­ceal, £37 Hid­ing a pim­ple is no easy task, but slather­ing your face with a heavy base slows down the heal­ing process and can do more harm than good. Wave this magic wand of a med­i­cated stick over your spots and not only will they van­ish, they’ll heal twice as fast. Use on clean skin and ap­ply a thin layer up to three times a day. It’s high-cov­er­age enough to mask even the an­gri­est of spots.

Face Wash & mask

5 Neu­tro­gena Vis­i­bly Clear Spot Proof­ing 2 In 1 Wash-mask, £4.99 Save some cash (and some cabi­net space) with this dual blem­ish buster. Used daily as a wash, it keeps your skin clean with­out dry­ing it out; for a de­con­gest­ing treat­ment, use as a mask once a week.

spots & Wrin­kles

6 Sk­inceu­ti­cals Blem­ish + Age De­fense, £82.95 Adult acne is on the rise. Arm your­self against break­outs and wrin­kles with this savvy serum. The oil-free for­mula tar­gets all the com­plex­ion con­cerns that come along with prob­lem skin, as well as fight­ing fine lines and un­even skin­tone. It’s ex­pen­sive, but it’s worth ev­ery penny.

de­con­gest & shrink pores

7 STARSKIN Sun­set Strips 3-Step Ad­vanced Pore Cleans­ing Ex­pert Sys­tem, £8.99 for two treat­ments Stop spots be­fore they be­come a prob­lem by stick­ing on these smart strips as soon as things look con­gested. Step one soft­ens the skin and dis­solves dirt; the sec­ond step uses char­coal to pu­rify; and the fi­nal strip uses herbs to calm the skin and tighten pores. We’re ready for our close-up.
