"I'm lucky that my skin stays blemish-free most of the time thanks to these products. My #1 tip to avoid breakouts: I do not touch my face, and I try not to let my cellphone rest on my cheek for long periods of time those are two serious oil-trappers!"
Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash
"In hot weather, cream cleansers leave my face feeling oily so I prefer using a gel cleanser everyday instead. This one from Bliss exfoliates and smells so good that my boyfriend steals it from me. It's gentle on my skin without drying it out."
Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion
"I apply this solution after I get out of the shower. It has just the right amount of 'zing,' which refreshes my skin while getting rid of oil and clearing dead skin cells. Bonus: I also pat it between my shoulder blades to keep bacne at bay."
Premium Cotton Rounds
"These quilted cotton rounds don't fall apart and shed all over my face like a cotton ball would. Lately I've been cutting them in half to save product and money."
Aveda Enbrightenment Brightening Toner
"After I wake up, I splash water on my face to get rid of any dirt and oil that accumulated on my skin overnight. Next, I apply this toner — toners are so underrated. Ever since I started using the right one, I've been almost blemish-free. This brightening formula aids in surface skin cell turnover for a more even skin tone."
Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20
"I love those super-magnifying mirrors, but sometimes they show you more than you want to see. After peering into one in the drugstore, in addition to blackheads (the bane of my existence), I noticed little freckles popping up. Now I wear SPF every day on my face. This moisturizer with SPF absorbs instantly, isn't greasy, and gives me a dewy but not shiny look."
