We all know Dial as a classic hand soap brand, accompanying sinks for years. Personally, we love their body washes and lotions (like the Frozen Yogurt Body Wash and 7-Day Moisturizing Lotion), but now—they’re breaking into the acne business with three new products clinically proven to give you clearer-looking skin in just three days. The new Acne Control line features a dermatologist-developed formula with two-percent salicylic acid, which helps slough away excess oil and dead skin to prevent breakouts. It’s available in three forms: a face wash, body wash and body and face bar, so whether you’re seeing pimples pop up on your face or struggling with bacne, there’s an option for you. The best part–everything is under $7 and available at mass retailers so you can get your hands on it (and get clearer skin) fast! We’re going to toss one in our gym bag to help prevent breakouts from tough sweat-sessions at the gym!

After a workout, I refuse to leave the gym without washing my face. Even if I’m going straight home, I make sure to get rid of any dirt or sweat that could potentially seep into my pores and cause a breakout. This habit is helpful, but because my gym’s locker room only provides hand soap and hand-sanitizer (yes, I’ve sanitized my face and lived to talk about it), I worry that my skin will dry out. Then I came across Olay Total Effects Lathering Cleansing Cloths ($6, drugstores) and I’m obsessed. These dry cloths lather up as soon as you wet them, so they’re perfect to keep in your purse or gym bag. They contain salicylic acid to prevent zits, as well as moisturizing ingredients to leave skin soft. Now I no longer have to carry a bottle of face wash with me at all times—my skin’s thrilled!

From makeup remover to acne wash, it takes a small army of cleansers to freshen my face before bed. For years, I’ve been searching for a face wash that can do it all while still protecting my sensitive skin. After hearing Features Assistant Editor Sarah D’Angelo rave about Neutrogena Deep Clean Sport Facial Cleanser ($6.99, drugstores), I decided to give it a shot. The tingling wash took off grime and makeup, but wasn’t harsh. Plus, it contains salicylic acid to keep blemishes at bay, and the leak-proof packaging is perfect for my gym bag. So long, three-step cleansing routine!
