Problematic skin in dire need of TLC needs a targeted skin care routine to solve its dilemmas. Here's everything you need to prevent, cure and heal your skin:

PREVENTION

1. Exfoliate

Mix a sugar-based facial scrub with a cleansing oil to lessen the friction for a mild yet deep cleansing experience. You’ll remove dirt and other impurities while maintaining your skin's suppleness and hydration levels.

Products that contain AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid) are the best friends of troubled skin. AHA exfoliates the skin’s outermost layer, while BHA delves deeper to target blemishes.
