Best Serums for Acne

Acne are the worst. And when we try to make it better, it actually worsens it. But luckily for you we found the 5 best serums that are specifically designed to treat and cure acne.

These serums target acne-causing bacteria and use ingredients both nature-derived and scientifically-supported to heal current blemishes, prevent acne from forming, balance skin, and reduce irritation and redness.

We included descriptions from their official website for you to get to know your products well.

Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum


Reduce breakouts, unclog pores, and clear with this powerful serum packed with willow bark, salicylic acid, Vitamin C, CoQ10 and organic fruit acids. Clears while hydrates.

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%


Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10% concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity.

Contraindications: If topical Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid and/or Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid) is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM). Otherwise, Niacinamide can affect integrity of the Vitamin C.

While Niacinamide and Zinc PCA reduce the look of blemishes and balance visible sebum activity, neither is a treatment for acne. 

You can find this on Shopee.
