For people who are dealing with blemish prone skin (better known as acne concern), developing a skincare regimen from scratch can take years of skincare study and a long voyage of product experimentation—which typically comes at a high cost. With the popularity of skincare on social media, particularly TikTok, it feels like there’s always a new skin condition to address and a new buzzy product to try every day. It looks like a fun beauty game until you hit reality. 

What’s the issue? Beauty items aren’t cheap—even budget skincare products may add up when purchased in bulk. But good news though, skincare sets are a terrific way to obtain a lot of things at one go. Not only that, skincare kits are usually often half the price of full-sized products, so you can receive a complete routine without breaking the bank. 

We believe that there is power in numbers, therefore Beauty Insider compiled a list of the finest skin care sets for blemish-prone skin.

What Really Causes Acne? 

Everyone deals with acne differently. So, the term ‘’hormonal acne’’ may vary for different people. However, the best way to detect if you’re facing hormonal acne problems is when you are going through a cycle of periods, pregnancy, or menopause. Basically a time where your hormones play a vital role in changing the state of your biology.

For example, hormonal imbalances, your PMS and even environmental contamination can all lead to the ‘’construction’’ of these stubborn acne. Moreover, hormonal acne often comes along with a few other annoying nibs, which are irregular periods, weight gains and excessive oil production. Hormonal acne—or mostly referred to as adult acne—usually grows on the U-zone of the face; cheeks, chin and jawline.
