Insider Skincare Tips for Acne-Prone Skin

Acne-Prone Skin looks and feels like this:


  • The skin is breaking out and you can feel and/or notice it.
  • The pores are clogged and the skin can be reddened in those areas.
  • The skin can be oily or dry, but tends to feel imbalanced due to over use of drying products, picking at the skin, and inflamed if continues on its untreated path.

Ellen’s Tips for Acne-Prone Skin


  • It is important to get on a regular skin clearing system that can be adapted for your skintype. In the Control Corrective line we have acne treatment products for normal/oily and normal/dry skin as well as products that focus on teen skin breakouts as well as adult onset acne, which often requires a different strategy.
  • Because acne is not a “skin type”, rather it is a skin condition, you need to identify your skin type (normal/oily or normal/dry) and then pick the products that are best for you. For example, if you are over 30 and have skin that is drier, you may be better off using O2 Med in the morning and the Acne Treatment Cream at night, to avoid over drying the skin, but addressing the problem. The combination for teen acne, with an oilier skintype might be the Clear Med 5% in the morning and the Acne Spot Treatment at night.
  • Since acne is multi-faceted it is ideal if you can approach it several ways. Using an exfoliating cleanser and toner, such as the Medicated Pumice Wash and Exfo Tonic, a pore “detoxifier” such as the Acne Spot Treatment in combination with a product to reduce redness and inflammation, such as the Calming Balm, you expidite clearing and reduce the risk of potential scarring.
