Few of us are unfamiliar with the occasional (and very, very unwelcome) zit or bout of uneven skin tone. But when skin troubles hit, the secret to addressing the problem is having the right product on hand to tackle it from the get-go. Make sure that you’re always prepared with this roundup of the best skincare products to tackle your skin concerns.
The Problem: Dryness
The Solution: Fresh Rose Face Mask, $62
Made with real rose petals, this cream works to hydrate thirsty dry skin while leaving skin silky soft to the touch. Plus, the subtle rose scent of the cream has a soothing, relaxing effect that is a welcome addition to its moisturizing properties.
The Problem: Excess Oil
The Solution: Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil, $42
While the concept of battling oily skin with an oil-based cleanser sounds totally counterintuitive, this product from One Love Organics helps restore your skin’s natural moisture levels and pH balance. Which means that it will strip it of excess oils without stripping it so much that your skin goes from oily to dry.
The Problem: Acne
The Solution: Kate Somerville EradiKate Acne Treatment, $26
Aside from the clever name, this product is super powerful when it comes to stopping blemishes in their tracks. Be careful, though – this treatment is strong, so a little bit will go a long way, and you’ll want to limit use to once daily.
The Problem: Redness
The Solution: Mario Badescu Healing & Soothing Mask, $20
Not only can this calming cream work wonders on redness from general irritation and skin sensitivity, but it actually helps out quite a bit with more serious skin irritations, like rosacea.
The Problem: Dark Spots
The Solution: Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Brightening Solution, $64
Whether you’re frustrated over dark spots, markings from sun damage, or general signs of aging, this brightening solution is formulated with ingredients like retinol and bearberry to take care of all of the above. Plus, it’s going to help minimize the appearance of your pores, which is always a welcome perk of any skin product.
