Neutrogena® Acne Quiz

by Neutrogena


 

Every breakout is different, which is why they should each be treated differently, too. We know acne can be frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be when you choose the right products. Find the right acne skincare products for you by taking the Neutrogena® acne quiz. Based on your results, you’ll get up to five personalized product recommendations, including cleanser, treatment, and moisturizer, to help you face the world with confidence — every day.

Skin Care Steps for Acne Prone Skin

One of the secrets for getting rid of acne and combatting stubborn breakouts is consistency. Adopting an acne regimen for your skin type, and sticking to it day and night, will help reduce breakouts and improve the appearance of your skin.

Every great skincare routine for acne starts with the right facial cleanser. Your face cleanser does all the heavy lifting to remove dirt, debris, and oil and prepare your skin for treatment and moisturizer. You’ll want to choose an acne face wash with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Next, you’ll apply a small amount of acne treatment, like a cream or a gel, all over the skin. Make sure your face is completely dry before applying and wait until the treatment is absorbed before smoothing moisturizer on top. It might sound a little backward to use a moisturizer on acne-prone skin, especially if it’s oily. The truth is, your skin needs that extra boost of moisture so it doesn’t peel or dry out. We can also pick the perfect acne treatment product and moisturizer for you when you take the acne quiz.

If you’re going for extra credit, protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays with an oil-free sunscreen. Elevate your look with cover-up solutions like oil-free and non-comedogenic (won’t block pores) concealer, foundation and powder for a fierce and flawless finish.
