Acne and scars

i have few active acne and acne marks i need whole skincare routine with no harmful chemicals in it plz help

Re: Acne and scars

@quspork  My skin is normal, little bumps at forehead and chin area and few acne spots. 

Re: Acne and scars

Ok, @maahiiiii then I'd start with a gentle, water-based cleanser, a good light moisturizer, sunscreen, and a BHA treatment to add in two or three nights a week. My preferred cleansers are all western products, but here are a few options for other AB-brand products in the other categories.


Moisturizer- belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb Hydrating Moisturizer With Squalane, Cosrx Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion, Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream, Benton Snail Bee Steam Cream


Sunscreen- Etude House Sunprise Mild Airy


BHA- CosRx Blackhead Power Liquid (the SEPHORA COLLECTION Clarifying Peel Pads 60 Pads are also a good option)

Re: Acne and scars

What's your skin type, @maahiiiii? Also, do you want all of the products to be Asian or are you open to some western options as well?

Re: Acne and scars

@quspork  my skin type is normal. I have few active acne and is sensitive so i prevent using new products because it makes it worse . So Iโ€™m kinda confused about which products should i start w new routine. It can be western as well .

Re: Acne and scars

@maahiiiii I mentioned in the comment above a few things I would look into to start a new routine, but I'll add a few other options here since you're open to some other products as well.
