Our Best Treatments for Persistent Blemishes
More common in younger skin types, persistent blemishes are characterized by frequent breakouts and excess oil. If you have persistent blemishes, start a routine with formulas that can help reduce oil, treat imperfections and help prevent future breakouts.
