For those struggling with acne, we know the struggle is real. Acne can make you feel less than confident or feeling like you need to hide it before facing the world. Often at times the best way to get rid of an acne breakout is to let your skin rest by going barefaced. This can worsen and add to the mental struggle of having bad skin and leave people helpless. We at Beauty Insider understand the different needs of our skin types and skin concerns, and have come up with our five acne fighting foundations to help you ride out an acne breakout (and treat it) seamlessly!
