OTC and even luxury face masks may seem like a good idea but unfortunately are not the best choice for people with acne prone skin. Why? Well when it comes to treating acne, these masks have no real benefit. In fact, many of these masks can actually damage the outer protective layer of the skin, causing more acne breakouts down the line. There is a lot of commercially biased information on the web and social media about masks and other "trendy" skincare products. Bottom line, if you are looking to reduce your acne, the most effective way to get rid of it is to commit to an acne treatment plan that uses clinically proven, medical-grade ingredients that are personalized for your skin.
