Which ingredients help acne-prone skin? How do they work?

EVELYN SAYS: All skin needs to be hydrated. People’s Beauty products use plant-based oils which naturally balance our skin; they are similar to our skin’s own naturally occurring lipids, and therefore are able to nourish without clogging the pores. Niacinamide is pore minimizing; salicylic acid is exfoliating; kaolin absorbs sebum and prevents pores from clogging; and pine mushroom oil has astringent qualities.

Which People’s Beauty products should I use if I have acne-prone skin?

For acne-prone skin, I recommend using our Double Duty Cleanser twice a day; it contains niacinamide and salicylic acid, which both prevent breakouts. I also recommend using our Frontliner Mask + Scrub, which uses kaolin to draw out impurities from the skin and regulate sebum production, preventing skin from producing excess oil.
