Holiday Skin SOS

Between the booze, lack of sleep, and almost constant sugar-intake (thank you holiday cookies!), it’s no wonder that your skin goes a little haywire. That’s why this examiner hits the Internet trolling for the ultimate in restorative anti-blemish face washes every December. Helping cut down on time and research, we’ve pulled together a few of our favorites.

For the Babe on a Budget: CLEAN & CLEAR® ADVANTAGE® Oil Absorbing Cream Cleanser
This trusty wash has been revamped and contains a breakthrough POWDERPARTICLES™ technology with rice protein that targets excess shine by absorbing 50 percent more oil than a leading ingredient. Combined with salicylic acid to treat and help prevent breakouts, this collection is the ideal solution to help control blemishes and shine leaving your skin, well… clean and clear.

For the Green Guru: Organic Doctor's Organic Tea Tree Face Wash
A flash foaming, mild gel cleanser, the wash contains a veritable pharmacy of essential oils and extracts including tea tree oil which is known to soothe irritated, acne-prone skin. What’s more – the face wash contains no harsh petro-chemicals and additives so you can wash worry-free.

For the Derm-Loving Lady: Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser
Developed by Dr. Murad, this face wash means business. Encapsulated Salicylic Acid continually releases acne treatment even after rinsing while Green Tea Extract and Menthol calm and cool inflamed skin. On top of that, Silver Citrate provides powerful antibacterial protection to inhibit blemish formation. No wonder that the wash eliminates 99.9% of irritating surface bacteria in less than one minute.

Take your pick and enjoy flawless skin all season long (or at least try to keep the blemishes at bay).
