If you have acne-prone skin, you’re probably always on the hunt for products that promise instant results. While “instant results” are technically not possible (unless you use Photoshop’s healing tool), there are products that speed up the healing process to reduce the appearance of spots. These products usually contain salicylic acid, which helps to unclog pores and prevent acne, and soothing ingredients such as aloe vera.

However, before you reach out for those harsh cleansers and spot treatments, hold that thought. Acne-prone skin, though oily, should never be stripped off all the oil. Doing so will only aggravate your skin condition, as your skin ends up producing more oil to make up for the dryness. The key is to balance your moisture levels. Confused? Just follow these steps.
