Antioxidants for clear pores & against acne?

Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP) works for reducing clogged pores & acne. We've put together a practical overview with product suggestions here: In summary, a product with 5% SAP can help reduce pore clogging & inflamed acne. It does not do miracles, but rarely causes irritation and can be an excellent complimentary active for your "heavy weight" anti-acne treatments (like Retinoids, Azelaic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid). Please note that products with SAP are usually marketed for uneven pigmentation (it is not particularly effective for it though - at least in the concentrations usually used). Hope you find it helpful!
