Tackling acne-prone skin issues in your 20s can feel a lot like being in the middle of a skin war. On the one hand, dealing with adult acne is just annoying. On the other hand, you may be wondering about how to care for your skin without stripping it of essential oils.

Especially while stuck at home, you may find yourself searching for a product that can treat your acne breakout, one problem at a time.

Thankfully, Sephora has taken the guesswork out of which products should and shouldn’t be on your radar. Many of these are already beauty faves, but here are a few more of the best skin care products in case you need a new splurge.
