1 (C—This makes wearing sunscreen regularly so worth it!)
2 (D—Hyperpigmentation is a discoloration in the skin and acne cysts are blemishes.)
3 (A—Salicylic acid is GREAT for the skin! It smoothens the skin without causing irritation, reduces acne-causing bacteria and oil to prevent blemishes, and penetrates the pores to help clear out impurities.)
4 (B— When you spray the skin it attracts the water from within the skin to the surface where it evaporates into the dry air! The result is even tighter, drier skin.)
5 (A—It’s worth the wait and gentle on your skin!)
