Good for: Skin prone to hyperpigmentation and redness
Most acne or pimple breakouts cause redness, and Johnson says that calming initial redness can help the pimple heal faster so you're less likely to end up with acne scars. She recommends looking for acne treatment products that feature ingredients that help with inflammation, like licorice, yeast, horse chestnut, green tea or oats.
She recommends: Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel, $49, and Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque, $46. Or, for a budget-friendly alternative, we like St. Ives Nourished and Smooth Oatmeal Scrub + Mask, $3.99.
