If acne-fighting ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid are too strong for your skin, we've got another great option for you: sulfur! While it works similarly to the two mentioned above—by absorbing excess sebum and getting rid of dead skin cells—it's a lot gentler and non-drying on your complexion.
