Also, no I'm not a happa haha :) I actually had to google it to figure out what it meant! I'm 100% purebred Costa Rican

Developing a solid skin care routine is key when it comes to clearing up your skin. Cleanse, tone, moisturize.
The most effective and most commonly used acne fighting ingredient is Benzoyl Peroxide. Benzoyl Peroxide works by killing off the bacteria causing your acne and drying up pustules at the same time.
Another common favourite is tea tree oil, it has anti bacterial and nourishing properties that will combat your acne and overall improve your complexion. It can be used as a spot treatment or found in acne fighting products.
Sulphur masks are also great; they work through osmosis to rid your body of the toxins under your skin that may be causing breakouts. I highly recommend the Murad one; use a sulphur or any acne fighting mask once a week to help speed up the process of ridding your skin from pimples.
When it comes to the actual routine you want to be sure you're consistent with it and washing your face once a day. A problem a lot of people have it that they do not properly wash their face, whenever you touch your face you want to follow your lymphatic system. It is the system that flushes out toxins from your face and working against it will cause build up and lead to breakouts. I like to think of it like streams, ponds and lakes. Streams are from your nose outward, working from the innermost part of your face you want to move your hand towards the outer edges. Now toxins are built up in 'ponds' Around the edges of your face, so finish off by going from the temple to the chin on either side, the lakes are the bottom of your chin! Start off with a cleanser with any of those acne fighting ingredients and use it to wash off any dirt oil or makeup from that day, always run in gentle circular motions following your nymphatic system. I recommend a foaming or gel water activated cleanser as they're usually more deep cleansing and will help you get rid of the bacteria under your skin. After wards always follow it with a toner. The high quantity of minerals in water will throw off your Ph balance and cause your skin to freak out which will not contribute to your acne problems. Afterwards follow up with a water based moisturizer. Oil can clog your pores and irritate your acne. If you have dry skin and cannot go without proper moisturizing get a hydrating serum to apply under your day cream.
