Desi Skincare Brands That Make Some Great Products For Acne-Prone Skin

Because taking care of your skin is more important than covering it up!

The skincare industry has definitely shown a massive boost in the last couple of months, thanks to the fact that we cannot step out of our homes without covering half of our faces. Makeup? We're keeping her on the down-low for now! And now that we have an ample amount of time on our hands, we are finally paying attention to our skin, and investing in great skincare products is a great start (unless you're all about DIY!).

Unless you've been living under a rock, I'm sure that you've heard all the hype around CeraVe and The Ordinary skincare products. Looks like the gen Z group of people just discovered these cult faves because they are blowing up pretty much on every social media platform and are sold out everywhere!

But let's not frown because here are some desi skincare brands too that work really well on acne-prone skin and definitely deserve to ride the hype train!

Indian Skincare Brands That Deserve Your Attention

These skincare brands have some of the best acne-fighting superstars and we're telling you all about them.

Dr. Sheth's

Everyone hates acne but sadly, there's no escaping them!

Acne is usually caused due to stress, hormonal changes, pollution, excess production of sebum and what not! Especially with the weather change, we Indians face a lot of skin woes and nobody understands it better than a dermatologist and a cosmetic chemist!

Their skincare products are specifically formulated for the Indian skin and their best-seller, Neem & BHA Spot Clarifying Serum is a must-have spot-treatment if your acne visits you more than your friends! It not only removes acne but also dead skin, clears pores, and leaves you with acne-free skin. The hero ingredient, neem, is acne's worst enemy and combining that with 2% Salicylic acid is only making things better. This tiny bottle packs in a punch for issues like acne, blackheads, whiteheads and textured skin.

Applying serum twice a day will keep so many skin woes at bay! When it comes to skincare, the importance of a good facial serum cannot be emphasized enough, especially if you have acne-prone skin. Dot & Key's zit zapping serum is a great product to add to your elaborate skincare regimen if acne is annoying the hell out of you.

It not only minimizes the appearance of acne but also reduces acne scars, clears up the skin and leaves a subtle glow behind.
