Does your complexion need a spring clean? Banish the blemishes this season, with the help of the hottest new anti-acne products on the market.

Foam Up

Skincare brand Biore is targeting zits and imperfections with a new Baking Soda Acne Cleansing Foam, and the help of Riverdale actress and brand ambassador Madelaine Petsch. The American brand, known for its pore-clearing formulas focusing on charcoal and baking soda, has designed the new foam to be tough on acne but gentle on irritated complexions. This anti-acne skincare is created for daily use on combination skin, the thick foam claims to remove high levels of surface dirt and oil to achieve a deep clean thanks to the inclusion of baking soda, without stripping skin of its moisture. The formula also contains salicylic acid to treat and prevent breakouts.

Detox And Correct

Activated charcoal remains a major skincare trend this spring, and Boscia is making the most of its detoxifying properties with the brand-new Charcoal Spot Corrector. The highly-concentrated anti-acne treatment promises to slow down the progress of zits by drawing out impurities from the skin and minimising irritation. It includes willowherb to calm the complexion and also acts as an exfoliator to reduce the appearance of pores.


It Cosmetics has come up with a way to treat your spots at the same time as hiding them, thanks to its new Bye Bye Breakout concealer. Designed for acne-prone and oily skin, the concealer contains oil-absorbing zinc oxide, kaolin clay, witch hazel, tea tree, sulfur and a gentle AHA/BHA complex to dry out zits. Meanwhile, its highly-pigmented coverage comes in seven different shades for a total cover-up. – AFP Relaxnews
