Ahh, so you woke up with a Magic Mountain-sized zit (or a whole range of them) on your face. As cringeworthy as that sounds, it happens to a lot of us. And while spot-treating them with acne cream is often the first line of defense, it’s sometimes not enough to keep them from popping up again. You have to get to the root of the problem, which starts with a regular skin-care regimen.
Aside from washing your face first, it can be confusing to figure out the order in which other skin-care products — like toner, moisturizer, sunscreen, and acne treatments — should be used in your daily routine. Finding an effective method will not only help you get the most out of your products and maintain a clear and healthy complexion, but it also reduces the risk of inflaming skin further.
