Acne-prone skin can have a massive impact on your confidence. Treating acne can be difficult, especially if you are prone to skin becoming dry, itchy, and red. 

If you're living with acne and struggling to find an effective solution to your skincare problem, take a look at the Korean acne products available exclusively at Skinsider.

We have a range of proven acne products that tackle imperfections, reduce redness, and help you achieve flawless, beautiful skin as part of a dedicated skin routine.

Acne is one of the most common skin problems. With more adults experiencing acne in their 20s, 30s & 40s due largely to environmental stressors and hormonal changes, helping combat acne can be difficult if you don't know what products you need. Skinsider has products that help with acne on the jawline, pimples appearing sporadically on the face, acne scars after a breakout, and many other common acne issues.

Looking for ways to treat acne? Here is what you need to know about Korean acne products:

What makes Korean acne products different?

Many of the typical products used to treat acne are abrasive and tough on the skin. This leaves most of us worried after using popular products that skin is not reacting as hoped or improvements are not moving as fast as we want. Most Korean acne products take a less invasive approach to improve skin, namely using a higher percentage of natural ingredients.

K-Beauty acne products try to curb sebum production and reduce pore size to calm acne before it causes any more problems. Many of the products you see here are geared towards dealing with specific issues, so it's important to understand which steps of a dedicated skincare routine you may be missing out on and how that could be impacting the way your body combats acne.

What brands are known for K-Beauty acne products?

The Skinsider experts handpick every product you see on this page. Some of our preferred acne treatment brands include: 

Klairs and COSRX a top-selling brand for common acne control. For anyone with acne that needs soothing, we recommend any Real Barrier cica products, especially their soothing toner.

Does Skinsider have vegan-friendly sensitive skincare products?

We like to give customers access to incredible vegan-friendly products, especially when dealing with acne. We have many patches, masks, toners, and cleansers, which are vegan-friendly and should be part of your routine to control acne.

Some of our vegan best-sellers include:

I have acne along my jawline. What products can help?

Acne on the jaw is typically due to hormonal factors and oil over-production. The pores around the jawline are quite sensitive and prone to scarring if not treated properly.

It helps to keep pores calm with something like Beauty of Joseon Calming Serum or COSRX AC Collection Calming Foam Cleanser.

I've just noticed a big pimple on my face. How can I get rid of it? 

You walk into the bathroom, have a glance at your reflection and notice a big red pimple is coming through. You might feel like panicking, but there's no need to when you can grab a pimple patch.

We stock patches like COSRX, By Wishtrend, and other brands, which provide a breathable patch you can apply over a pimple to let it work its magic. Having a breathable patch is important as you don't want oil trapped and the pore not having contact with air.

My nose if particularly bad for blackheads. What should I use?

It would be a miracle if our noses never had enough blackheads or pimples showing up out of the blue. This part of the nose is most common for acne and spots because the nose and t-zone have the highest concentration of oil glands on the face. It is also an area people apply moisturiser to after squeezing at blackheads and pores because of skin peels and tears.

If you want to reduce acne's appearance and spots on your nose, try and use cleansers instead. Something like COSRX Low-pH Good Morning Cleanser can be used on the nose to ensure that pores are cleaned as best they can be and oil is kept in check.
