Best Skincare Ingredients for Acne-Prone Skin
Acne medication, while may be necessary, can wreak havoc on your skin's microbiome. Ingredients like Salicylic Acid are designed to dry out excess oils (sebum) from your skin, but can also affect normal production of oil.
Keeping your skin healthy and radiant while still addressing acne is a bit of a juggling act, but these ingredients can help and have been confirmed by skin experts not to interfere with treatment for general cases of acne.
More severe forms of acne such as reoccurring nodular and cystic acne should always be treated as recommended by your dermatologist and all ingredients should be confirmed prior to use.

Serum for Acne Prone Skin
Over 80% of the population is affected by acne, and there are many treatments targeting this popular skin challenge.
One misconception is that you just need to clean skin really well to keep it acne-free. While keeping skin and surfaces that interact with it - such as phones, pillows, hands, etc. - clean is a big part of reducing breakouts, the skin-clearing magic happens in the treatment portion of your skincare routine - the serum.
Serums are designed to be the "meal" of your skin care routine, nourishing and treating it.
Make sure that your AM and PM serums have the ingredients your skin needs to protect and improve its microbiome, and address its individual needs.
CALM Face + Hand Acne-Reducing Serum from MOOD Skin Care is specifically formulated to help acne-prone skin reduce breakouts, and better tolerate drying ingredients like Salicylic Acid that may be in your cleanser or toner as part of your journey to clear skin.
