By  | 

There are times when you use a sheet mask, you exfoliate, you’re generous with serums, and the like. On other days, you are struggling to even get your makeup off before you crash into bed. We get it. Consistency isn’t your greatest strength.

So, while you do want to get rid of the acne, a 4-step regimen will have you giving up faster than an ice cream left out in the sun. You need it to be easy and quick. And perhaps one of the easiest ways to get your skin squeaky clean is with a face wash. ‘Cause you only have to do one thing – wash the face!

We rummaged through our bathroom cabinets looking for the best face washes for acne, and we’ve put together a list that should put you well on your way to clear skin. It’s a win-win.
