There are over 50 million people with acne in the U.S. If you’re one of those afflicted, don’t be ashamed to take a selfie. Put on your best smile and pose for the camera regardless of the state of your skin. Actress AnnaLynne McCord once Tweeted out a photo of herself with her acne breakout front and center. If she can do it—so can you!
Boost your confidence with these simple tips from Eric Schweiger, M.D, founding dermatologist of Clear Clinic Acne Treatment Center and Clear Clinic @ Home.
- If you have oily, acne-prone skin make sure to use an oil-minimizing product to minimize shine prior to snapping your selfie.
- Apply Clear Clinic @ Home Serious Action Serum, which contains salicylic acid along with a blend of botanicals, to shrink pores, regulate sebum production and mattify a shiny T-zone.
- Hold the camera above your face, as opposed to below the face, for your most flattering angle.
