As a teen, I was one of the few lucky ones who did not have trouble with breakouts. I didn’t fully understand how grateful I should have been for avoiding dermatology appointments and having to test out every home remedy to achieve clear skin. But now that the stress of life has increased exponentially as I approach my 40’s, the occasional breakout is not uncommon.
Because I am unfamiliar with most acne remedies, I turned to a brand I trust…Neutrogena. I have been a fan of their On-the-Spot Acne Treatment for a while now so I was thrilled when I learned that the team developed the NEUTROGENA® Naturals Acne collection.
“While many consumers are seeking natural skincare solutions, they often dismiss natural products when it comes to acne because they believe natural ingredients do not offer real, visible results. But why should they compromise? The latest offering from the brand that is recommended two times more than any other skincare brand, the NEUTROGENA® Naturals Acne collection harnesses the power of naturally-derived Salicylic Acid in Wintergreen to enhance the proper function of healthy skin and meet the need of consumers of all ages seeking an efficacious, natural alternative to traditional acne remedies.”
In a recent interview with one of Neutrogena’s lead scientists, I learned that the Wintergreen is processed in a unique way, resulting in USP Grade Salicylic Acid that meets the OTC Monograph for Acne Treatment. It is free of harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, dyes and phthalates. If you are looking for a gentler solution, the NEUTROGENA® Naturals Acne collection is formulated with 1% naturally-derived Salicylic Acid to deliver clinically proven results without over-drying skin.
I have tried the Neutrogena Naturals On-the-Spot Acne Treatment and have found no difference is efficacy when compared to the regular On-the-Spot Treatment. Plus, the Naturals packaging is made from recycled material, too!
I am also in love with the NEUTROGENA Naturals Acne Foaming Scrub which has a very light citrus scent. The natural Jojoba beads gently exfoliate your skin and the 1% naturally derived Salicylic Acid penetrates deep into pores, too. If you want to give the products a try, the entire Neutrogena Naturals line is available now!
