Clearing It Up
10 fave acne fighting products
Acne is a no-no when it comes to looking your best. We can cover it up with the right makeup but it doesn’t actually make it disappear (sadly). Plus, covering it up with tons of makeup can give off the wrong look (fake instead of dewy and flawless Victoria’s Secret skin). The worst thing ever is when your skin decides to be ridiculous instead of fabulous right before a party, date, or any other big event.
Instead of punishing your skin by picking at it, cursing at it, or putting a frown on your face, you should take the time to pamper the ridiculousness right out of your skin. Positive energy and the right product will get you further. Trust us, you will seriously notice a difference.
