Get It:Best For:How to Use:
Vitamin E Oil (topical)$9For a freshly healing acne spot.

E oil keeps a healing wound well moisturized, helping to prevent a scar. It also has anti-inflammation properties that can help with redness.

A ton less sticky mess than a bottle of E Oil.

I love to buy high IU liquigels + break them open for topical application. Easily targeted squeeze application + so much less fuss.

** FYI — E Oil can be an allergen for some people. **

1. Carefully clip open a liquigel at one end.

2. Squeeze some E Oil onto post-acne spot.

3. Optional: Since it’s sticky, can apply a light-stick bandaid to cover overnight. It will really soak in + not transfer to pillows. Can even apply the oil to bandaid & then apply across healing spot.
Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Drop$23Vitamin C is a building block of new skin. It can help even out skin tone, fade post-acne dark spots, help heal post-acne, and keep skin youthful. Best used at night.

With Vitamin C, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so be sure to protect it.

Though this one is gentler than others, you must slowly introduce it to your skin as your skin will overreact at first. Use a small amount and then back off a few days, then try again, upping usinge with time as needed. If your skin overreacts, wash off with lukewarm water immediately.

Missha Super Aqua Snail Renew Cream (70%)$50

(lasts ~2 months)

This looks & feels like a gell. For many, this might be a good toe-in texture-wise.

They have fabulous sales either 2x or 4x a year & an excellent rewards program.

Snail mucin stimulates skin cell turnover & promotes healing. So it will boost skin’s natural overnight repair mode.

I find it does its job best when paired with either a nutrient/antioxidant-rich toner or essence. (Guess it gives the skin some fuel to assist.)
