A lot of people wonder if acne skin care products are necessary for problem skin. The answer is, possibly!
Some of the products that you should buy include:
1. An oil free moisturizer, oil free foundation, and an oil free make up remover.
2. A soap-less cleansing bar and a facial wash gel. Soap should not be used on your face because it will strip natural oils away and that will leave you with sensitive skin on top of the acne problem.
3. If you have blackheads and greasy skin then you should use a gel or lotion that contains retinoid.
4. If your skin is sensitive and you have blackheads, a retinoid gel should be used because lotion may aggravate the situation.
