2 of the best skincare products for adult acne are from Dermalogica’s Active Clearing range: The AGE Bright Clearing Serum, the AGE Bright Spot Fader.
After the age of 25, our hormones change (especially in women), so may start to develop adult acne. Chronic stress (also more common in women) can also be a trigger for adult acne.
When we’re older, post-acne pigmentation can be worse than it was in our teenage years as adult skin heals slower, so we’re more prone to the pigmentation marks left behind from a breakout.
My Skin Type: I have oily, acne-prone skin. My skin is also dehydrated, but I don’t have any dry patches.
AGE Bright Clearing Serum
The AGE Bright Clearing Serum* has worked wonders for my skin, it’s brighter, clearer and less textured than ever before. I definitely have less breakouts and my post-acne marks are fading. I use half a dropper of this twice daily after double cleansing (also Dermalogica) and before moisturising. I love that it is light enough for me to use in my morning routine and makeup layers perfectly on top.
AGE Bright Spot Fader
The AGE Bright Spot Fader* stops breakouts in their tracks before they have the chance to fully develop. I’m prone to really deep under-the-skin monsters that appear like clockwork every month, but this super effective cream has been amazing for reducing the inflammation without drying out my skin.
The formula is creamy but not heavy, sinking into the skin really quickly leaving no residue behind. I apply a small amount of the cream (right after the serum) on to my finger and press lightly on top of the unwanted friend. Within 2-3 days, it’s as if it was never there!
