Wipe out adult acne with these three tips for a better skincare routine. 

1. Keep it Basic

First thing’s first: get the basics right. The best products in the world can't work if you don't use them consistently. But our lives are busy and sometimes we just want to crawl into bed without washing our faces.

If you have trouble washing your face every day and night, make your skincare routine a daily goal until it becomes a habit. To borrow a new age term, "set an intention." In other words, make a commitment to yourself. These are three steps to make happen twice a day:

• Cleanse 
• Hydrate (and protect with SPF)
• Treat 

Arithmetic Acne Control Complex Last year Martha Stewart revealed a skincare routine bursting with dozens of products. Somewhat simpler regimens promote miracle results, too. But before taking on too many steps, we suggest mastering the three musts above. Do them consistently every day before graduating to advanced operations like special serums, expensive cosmetics, and exotic masks. 

  • Remember: spot treatments like our Acne Control Complex work best when your skin is freshly cleansed, hydrated, and prepared to play.
2. Keep it Simple

Unless you're a model or television star whose paycheck depends on it, long to-do lists over the bathroom sink never fly. For normal humans try to get in, get out—and get glowing skin. The simpler your routine, the more likely you’ll be to keep at it whether you’re cozy at home or on the road.

Add a few drops of your favorite cleanser to our Konjac Exfoliating Sponge, an all-natural tool that washes away dirt and oil while gently buffing away flakes and brightening the complexion. 

3. Keep it... Patient 

While the ads in glossy magazines promise otherwise, we all know that we won't get a clear, radiant, and healthy complexion overnight. That's a bummer. But achieving and maintaining the health of your skin is an ongoing process that requires time, consistency, and patience.

Don’t pout! If your priority is to put your best face forward, do the work! A brighter, healthier you is worth the effort.
