@Albanin Alpha arbutin does not treat acne. If you’re trying to reduce (clear up) or control acne, then no, The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Hyperpigmentation Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL won’t do that. Alpha arbutin can reduce dark marks left behind by acne, though. That’s because this ingredient treats hyperpigmentation. So if you just need something to help fade dark acne scars, The Ordinary’s alpha arbutin serum may be helpful.

@startingmakeup When you posted about this last Thursday, you seemed sure you have “fungal acne” and I posted a reply (in your older thread) based on that assumption. But if you’re actually not sure what type of acne you have, you need to see a dermatologist or your primary care doctor to have your skin diagnosed. None of us here on BIC are medical doctors who can diagnose your skin. A derm or other doctor can do that and recommend treatment for your particular skin.

Hi @max14572 , Maybe you are having an allergic reaction? If you tried any new products before you had breakouts, definitely do not use them again. Also, try identifying what type of acne you have. If you have pus-filled acne that is red at the base, you may have pustules. If you're acne is solid and deeper, you might have nodules. If you acne is a combination of those two things, then you may have cystic acne. Make sure to wash your face with a gentle cleanser and use oil-free and non-comedogenic moisturizers. To treat your acne, use a drying Benzoyl peroxide lotion (i recommend the Neutrogena AM stubborn acne treatment). But if you're acne looks and feels more serious than a normal breakout, I highly recommend going to see a dermatologist to see what you can do. I hope this helps!

Whenever I get a breakout, this is what I use: 1st day: Hero Pimple Patch(This really sucks up all the puss in the pimple/pimples) 2nd day: CVS Targeted Acne Spot Treatment(It’s really cheap and works wonders to heal the breakout!) Then I just apply The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% to reduce redness (I know it’s for oil control but it also in my case reduces the redness and inflammation). I just keep applying it until the redness is very minor. This is just what works for me!

@cethats Caveat: there’s no brand whose entire product line I can use. And we don’t all have the same skin type/behavior, condition, needs, sensitivity, or allergy; these things can rule out entire brands for my particular skin. With that outta the way, my favorite Sephora-carried skincare brands are Paula’s Choice, The Ordinary, and The Inkey List.
