If you’re over 25 and experiencing breakouts, it’s time to move away from teen formulas to successfully address the complexities of adult acne. Adult skin is typically drier and more sensitised than a teen and prone to hyperpigmentation or scaring due to slower healing rates. Spot fighting products that leave skin feeling dry or tight will only exacerbate your breakouts due to dehydration and barrier damage. This leaves skin vulnerable to more infection and in a vicious cycle.

To clear breakouts, opt for gentle formulas that respect the skins natural acidic pH and moisture levels and look for actives like Salicylic Acid to effectively clear pores. Double cleansing is key as the foundation to achieving clearer skin and we suggest using an oil-based pre cleanser before a medicated wash. Try PreCleanse and Clearing Skin Wash.

Follow with a hydrating serum with Salicylic Acid and Niacinamide to boost skin healing and clear impactions. We recommend AgeBright Clearing Serum. And always include a hydrating moisturiser to prevent skin drying out. When skin is stripped of moisture it produces more oil (sebum) to compensate which leads to further pore congestion. Prebiotic technology can also help balance the levels of breakout causing bacteria. Try Active Moist.
