From diet and stress to hormone levels and lousy skincare routines, there are several causes of a bad breakout. If you're suffering with blemishes or persistent acne and are looking for a way to treat it, Amazon has you covered.

Over 3,500 Amazon shoppers recommend the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, which they say is a 'miracle worker' for treating acne and banishing breakouts on the face and body.

'This is good for anyone prone to spots/acne,' one Amazon reviewer wrote. 'I myself am prone to hormonal breakouts, and this clears up within a few days using this! I've tried others, but this is by far the best results!'

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant contains 2 per cent BHA (salicylic acid), which boasts anti-inflammatory properties and helps to reduce blemishes and redness 

'For someone with acne-prone skin, trying to products can be quite daunting as there's always a risk of breakouts,' another reviewer commented.

'This product has been AMAZING. No breakouts, clearer skin and less redness. It doesn't dry me out or make my skin any more oily, which is rare! Would absolutely recommend. Wish I'd found it sooner!'

A third raved: 'Best skin product there is! Love it, cleared my acne flare up within two weeks!'

So what makes it so darn good? Formulated with two per cent salicylic acid, a tried-and-true ingredient that can help remove dead skin cells clogging pores, used daily, the liquid exfoliator is a great way to gently resurface, stimulate, brighten, clear, maintain the skin.

Suitable for all skin types, especially normal, oily or combination, Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant gently deep cleans pores to help eliminate acne and blackheads.

This gentle, lightweight fluid quickly exfoliates dead skin cells both on the surface and deep inside pores to reveal smoother, clearer, more radiant-looking skin 

The exfoliation also helps to fade lingering acne scars while promoting a brighter, smoother and even texture for a more clarified complexion. And it doesn't cost the earth either, selling at £13 for 30ml on Amazon.

For best results, use Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant on cleansed dry skin. Begin by lightly soaking a reusable cotton pad and apply over the entire face, including the eye area (avoid lash line and eyelids). There is no need to rinse.

As with all exfoliants, follow with a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher when applied during the day, as your skin will be more susceptible to sun damage.
