Sulfur clears pores by shedding dead skin cells and helps to heal preexisting comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). It also provides an immediate benefit by reducing acne’s tell-tale redness and swelling. This remarkable OTC medicine has been used to treat acne for over a thousand years, yet is sometimes avoided due to its odor. Thankfully, advanced processing and new purification technologies can now produce much lower odor sulfur materials for skincare products, and what little odor still remains can be easily masked, so there is no longer any reason not to take advantage of this highly effective acne-treating ingredient. Since using this regimen I can now confidently go foundation free!
