You can find it in many drugstore products—just take a peek at the label. Dermatologist Dendy Engelman, M.D. likes the Benzac line. “It’s active ingredients are salicylic acid and East Indian Sandalwood oil—salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that serves as a keratolytic agent (meaning it dissolves keratin). It unclogs pores by penetrating into the pore to dissolve dead skin cell accumulation and aids in shedding of the top layer of skin. East Indian sandalwood oil is a naturally occurring anti-inflammatory agent, which is new to the skin care scene. It soothes the skin and fights off inflammation that often accompanies breakouts.”

When it has set, rinse off with warm water and pat your skin dry.

My acne started around age 13 and only progressed to get worse! My mother always told me, just wait until after high school, it will get better. But those years came and went with no change.

There’s good reason the natural beauty aisle is packed with clay masks: The masks can help dislodge pore-clogging oils and dirt, says Alicia Zalka, MD, a Connecticut-based dermatologist. And they’re a better choice for people with sensitive skin and acne than salicylic or glycolic acid masks, which have the same pore-clearing effects but can cause irritation, she adds. Draw out impurities with this DIY clay mask recipe from Jessica Hayman, ND, an Arizona-based licensed naturopathic doctor: Mix equal parts bentonite clay ($5 for 1 lb, vitacost.com) and apple cider vinegar, leave on for 45 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Repeat weekly.
