Good skin starts with well-cleansed skin. This is particularly important when your skin is prone to blemishes, as it also helps clear impurities and dirt from your pores, which can help protect against the appearance of blackheads and blemishes. Start with Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser, formulated with Salicylic Acid and Ginger Root Extract. It helps prevent and soothe blemishes without drying skin. Dampen face, then gently lather a small amount and wash off before patting dry with a towel. Click here to find out more about the new and improved formula of this product!

Don’t miss this seemingly small yet important step on your journey to healthier-looking skin. Try Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, an iconic Kiehl’s product launched in 1964, and formulated with Salicylic Acid, Menthol and Camphor. This will help tackle blemish-prone and oily areas in particular. Apply a few drops to a cotton pad, and dab onto target areas, for example your T-Zone. You can also use it all over your face, or follow in the steps of 5 decades of male patrons, who use it as an aftershave to help soothe skin!

Last but not least! You might be focussing on your blemishes, but do not lose sight of the sun. Make sure you never leave the house without applying sun lotion. Try our Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Mineral Sunscreen, formulated with a 100% mineral based filter and Vitamin E. It is feels very light on the skin, and it’s fragrance free and paraben free. Apply onto the whole face and allow a minute to dry before applying make-up – or go bare-faced, because it’s tinted!
