Ward Off Blemishes

 Ward off Blemishes! Across the board, dermatologists agree: It's very important to steer clear of certain ingredients that can lead to acne breakouts. "Look for product labels that say 'non-comedogenic,'" says Dr. Ingleton. This specifically means that certain oils, lotions, and skin creams do not block pores;  Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer ($10.99, is a great one.

"Products that we use to make our hair look good contains oils that over weeks rubs off onto our foreheads and jaw line causing acne breakouts," says Dr. Ingleton. If tossing your hair care products just isn't an option, Dr. Ingleton recommends using an acne wash that contains salicylic acid on a daily basis to keep pores clear. (Try: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash, Redness Soothing Cream Cleanser, $8, These washes tend to be drying, so follow up with a lightweight moisturizer.

Cetaphil is great for acne-prone skin. I use Purpose though cuz I like the texture better, but it's the same non-comedogenic concept.
