Over Age Acne? Learn How To Beat the Bumps
Develop a “Clean Routine”
There’s no way around it, ladies–you MUST wash your face every night, whether you wear makeup or not. Your skin is like a sponge, and inside those pores all the pollutants, dirt, dust and debris accumulate there and just sit and rot. That “rot” quickly clogs your pores and kaboom! there goes a pimple. And while it takes only a night to get one, it can take weeks, and even months for the pimple to go away, and then the scars and hyperpigmentation require cover-up, which in turn can clog the pores if you don’t wash properly. Just stop the cycle before you spin yourself silly on the skin-care hamster wheel.
Products that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide are effective in managing adult acne, but the extra added benefit of anti-aging ingredients kill two birds with one stone. Madame Noire’s top picks to fight acne and aging are Paula’s Choice RESIST Anti-aging hydrator, iS CLINICAL Active Serum, DDF Salicylic Wash 2% and SukiFace Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser and Balancing Day Lotion.
