Favorite anti-acne products: Burt’s Bees Natural Acne Solutions Purifying Cleanser ($10) and Colloidal Silver Salve ($20)

“I’ve had great results using the Burt’s Bees cleanser for clearing up skin, used twice a day, depending on how severe the acne is. The Colloidal Silver Salve is an antibacterial gel that kills bacteria and lowers the inflammatory response of the skin.”

Favorite anti-acne product: Protective Nourishment Pumpkin Peel ($50)

“This is my favorite for breakouts. It has pure pumpkin extract and 5 percent glycolic acid and can be used weekly as a mask or to spot-treat breakouts as needed. I like that it doesn’t dehydrate the skin or cause hyperpigmentation.”

Favorite anti-acne product: J’ai Ione Purifying Mask ($55)

“This mask not only smells great, but also has ingredients that are super natural—willow bark is a key ingredient, an alternative to salicylic acid. I’m all about cooling skin down when it’s acneic or overactive, and this mask does a great job of that.”
