Problem skin can be a real bummer. Perfect, glowing skin is always in and sometimes blemishes and hyper-pigmentation can ruin a flawless complexion. Different skin problems need to be treated differently and special treatment to tame. Using the right cleanser will be easier to combat the problems plaguing your skin.
Cleanse your skin with a mild face wash that contains ingredients like glycerin, aloe or panthenol to restore moisture. This will help plump up the skin and smooth it out. Exfoliate with pads soaked in alpha hydroxy acid to stimulate collagen production.
