your face, thus increasing the chance for infection, inflammation and
using over the counter products which come loaded with a lot of chemicals. No

because such products tend to disturb your skin’s pH and lead to more serious
problems in the near future.

Thus, the bottom line here is to maintain hygiene and help
your acne naturally. But if you are really serious about treating acne if
nothing seems to work out, we would highly recommend using AcnEase
and Rejuvel which are completely natural
solutions to treat acne. Both these
products are made of natural solutions and work by preventing the breakouts.
They do so by creating a buffer between your sebaceous glands and hormones.
Further, they also help in healing the already developed acne while also taking
care of scars and being safe to use!
