Editor's Favorites: Acne Products

If you suffer from painful, cystic acne, your best bet is to visit a dermatologist and start a prescribed regimen as soon as possible. But if you only experience mild, occasional breakouts, then we suggest using these products to guarantee clear skin on your wedding day.

Want to get rid of even more pore-clogging residue? Alpha hydroxy acids are the dermatologist-approved way to get rid of dead skin cells, the main culprits behind unsightly blemishes. While harsh exfoliating scrubs can tear skin and worsen acne, AHAs unclog pores gently. Plus, studies show AHAs stimulate the production of new skin, meaning acne scars will improve, too. Try Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel ($35 for 10 packettes).
