The best simple skincare routine for your acne-prone skin

When you have troubled skin that’s prone to breakouts*, you may be tempted to shun skincare routines altogether, for fear of further aggravating your skin. But a simple, targeted skincare plan that’s still gentle is your your best when it comes to keeping skin calm, under control and glowing with good health.

A thorough cleanse is key for any skin type, but especially so for pimple-prone skin as it’s essential to clear away the daily oil and debris that clogs pores, contributing to the breakout cycle. With your skin most likely on the oily side, you may have shied away from oil-based cleansers in the past. However these powerful cleansers are your secret weapon when it comes to clarifying your pores.

They work by sweeping away oil-based debris including sebum, makeup, SPF and pollutants.

Oily cleansers won’t make your skin oily. In fact, deep cleansing your skin this way is ideal for oily skin, since it clears out the pores so thoroughly.

Our pick for oily skin – Makeup Melting Balm in Green Tea, $22.
This effective cleansing balm emulsifies with water to remove all traces of dirt, dust and makeup (even waterproof), deep-cleansing and purifying the skin and leaving it refreshed, bright and radiant. It contains antioxidant-rich green tea extract, to purify skin and clear pores without a greasy residue.

The next step for a complete clean is your-water based cleanser, to draw out water-based impurities such as sweat and dirt and remove the last traces of your oil cleanser. For breakout-prone skin, double cleansing really is the magic bullet.

Our pick for oily skin is the amazing Smart Treatment Foam Gel Cleanser in Pimple, $20, which provides a targeted skin treatment as it washes away all traces of makeup and residue.

The star ingredient is salicylic acid, consistently highly recommended by dermatologists for clearing out pores and gently exfoliating skin – a must for any breakout-clearing routine.

Another key ingredient is calamine extract, which calms and rejuvenate reddened skin so you get all the cleansing with no harshness. You will love the foaming whipped-cream texture that gives the ultimate in effective deep-cleaning of pores.


Blemish-prone skin can often be susceptible to redness, so you never want to use harsh grainy scrubs that can irritate skin and even cause micro-tears.

Exfoliating regularly is a magic bullet for creating radiant, glowing skin, as it brightens your complexion and unclogs your pores by dissolving proteins that lead to breakouts – all while making your skin oh so soft.

Non-abrasive exfoliators use gentle alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids to clean pores and detoxify skin. The ideal pick for blemish-prone skin is our Exfoliation Peeling Pad Pack in Charcoal, $46, which exfoliates with AHAs and BHAs and also contains charcoal to purify. Exfoliate your skin every few days to keep it in peak condition.

The hero ingredient is Swedish Juniper Berry, a Nordic folk remedy used since prehistoric times to treat inflammation and hydrate the skin. Juniper Berry Oil will also help reduce the appearance of blemishes and scars.

The range also contains another superstar - Calamine Powder, known for its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, which soothes skin irregularities, help clear breakouts and relieve redness.

To break it down, this targeted routine includes:

1 Toner, to balance your skin’s pH levels, purify skin and prepare it to receive maximum benefits from the routine

2 Essence, to deliver potent nourishing, skin-clearing and calming ingredients to the dermis

3 Emulsion, to deliver supercharged, lightweight hydration with no oily residue

4 Cream, to seal in the benefits of the skin-clearing ingredients and plump, smooth and protect skin 

  With this simple routine, based on world-leading Korean skincare science, you are spending a few mindful moments on your skin, but getting an incredible return on your investment.  


What’s the key to getting optimal skincare results? Simple – it’s consistency. The more you stick to the habit, morning and night, the better the results.

If you’re not committed to a consistent skincare routine, you may as well be throwing money away. Even the best products in the world won’t make a difference if you use them haphazardly – and you’ll never stay on top of breakouts.

We get it, sometimes life gets in the way and every day won’t always end with your perfect skincare routine. But if you can commit to taking care of your skin well the majority of the time, you’ll never regret it.


Need a little extra ammunition in the battle against blemishes? Trouble Relief Calming Pink Spot, $15, is your secret weapon. This potent targeted treatment is supercharged with Juniper Berry oil and Calamine Powder to clear and calm skin and deal to your blemishes on the spot.
