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.

Salicylic acid has an anti-inflammatory effect on pimples and exfoliating properties that help unplug pores. (It works especially well on blackheads.) If you're also using AHAs or benzoyl peroxide, use a face wash containing salicylic acid, since layering too many products can irritate skin. Try Alba Botanica Natural ACNEdote Deep Pore Wash ($9.95).
