Get Your Confidence Back- Acne Products That Won't Break The Bank
After hundreds of dollars spend on treatments, cleansers, moisturizers, and spot treatment I've set out to find inexpensive products that are the best for acne prone skin. I've come up with a list of my favorite products that are $25 and under that work great with acne prone skin.
Disclaimer I am not a professional, these are just products that I've had first hand use at and know they work for my acne prone skin.
VITAMINS| Selenium and Zinc
In my opinion most acne is caused from inside your body by hormones, so what better way to control acne then by taking a natural supplement that works from the inside out? That's where VITAMINS come in, vitamins are awesome!! They give you nutrients that your body needs. From my research I've found that Selenium and Zinc paired together produce inflammatory properties as well as decreased oil production in your skin. If you are looking for a natural way to clean your body from the inside out do some research on vitamins and see which ones would be a good fit for you. Consult a doctor to see what will work best.

Cost- Z: $2.94 S:$2.84
This should say cloth and cleanser. Alright guys, I was super skeptical of the claim of this rag that it removes all your makeup without any product on it. Crazy huh?? But that's not all it has antibacterial properties in the cloth that works as its own cleanser. You just run the cloth under warm water, wring it out, and wash your face with it. A pack of these rags, runs for $19.99 for 3 rags. I honestly don't know what is in these cloths but it is so magical (that sounds really lame, but it's so true!) This rag completely, I mean completely takes off all of my makeup. From my foundation, to my winged eyeliner, completely comes off!!! I've been using these rags for about a week now and I am already seeing results in my skin clearing up.

TONER| Witch Hazel
Witch Hazel calms the redness in my face so well, it also fights bacteria. It's just basically awesome, and it soothes my sore face! All you need is witch hazel and a cotton ball and put it on after washing your face. Another awesome thing is that it hydrates your face which is needed when getting rid of acne. The thing most people don't understand about acne is when you dry it out you need to hydrate it. If you don't hydrate then oil production increases because that's its job to increase oil production when it is diminished. Using witch hazel in combination with moisturizer fights against dry skin, leaving it happy and healthy.

FOUNDATION| NS Minerals
Minerals are seriously SOOOO good for your face, like so good! They don't clog your pores like liquid foundation does and they are all natural. It doesn't get much better than all natural. So I discovered this foundation from my mother who watched a YouTube video on this makeup. I was skeptical that it would cover up my acne and uneven spots on my face. So I ordered a sample from their website. The samples came in the tiniest package ever, I was so shocked and was kind of mad because I paid for the samples plus shipping. But then I tried it and oh my heck, it was the best foundation that I've ever tried! The best part is that you only have to use the tiniest bit and it completely covers your face! For example the tiny sample I got was probably the size of my thumb nail and I still have enough for my face after 3 uses, it seriously goes a long way! It is a little spendy but the tiniest bit goes a long way, so be sure to order a few samples so you know your exact shade! And believe me I love Benefit foundation, but I have found my new replacement.

PRIMER|Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
I LOVE this stuff, so much! I simply put a pea sized amount on my finger and pat it into my skin. It makes it so smooth and look absolutely poreless. Once you put your foundation on it makes it look almost airbrushed, and it makes your makeup look flawless. The cool thing about this product is that you can either put it on with or without foundation, and it still looks good! I love how smooth it makes my face! It also comes in a dang cute packaging, I mean who doesn't love pretty packaging?!

LOTION| Mary Kay Timewise Moisturizer
This moisturizer is so good! It completely hydrates your face without making it oily causing a breakout! Its tough enough to get rid of all of my dry skin, but soft enough not to cause breakouts, and that's important if you have acne. Also you don't even have to have a Mary Kay lady to buy it from, you can purchase it on Amazon, which is pretty cool! So their is no excuse not to buy this awesome moisturizer!
