Salicylic acid! Benzoyl peroxide! LED lights! Clays of all kinds! Take your pick from these ELLE-approved acne-clearing products and devices.
What's in it: Blue and red LED lights. (The blue light works on acne bacteria a the surface of skin, while the red light penetrates further, and works on reducing inflammation.)

What's in it: 5% benzoyl peroxide in a gel base. (Editor's note: This is my go-to acne product. I had a mini meltdown when my last tube ran out before a trip.)
