For most people, the move from acne-fighting products into anti-aging is a seamless one. The pimples stop and the fine lines (alas!) creep up. But for some of us, there's a bit of a blurry line between the two. Our skin has matured past the normal "acne" days, but pimples are still finding a way to sneak up on us.
When wrinkles and lack of firmness are also met with pimples and blemishes, you need a skincare routine that's taking charge of both concerns at once. Thankfully, there are a number of heavy duty anti-aging products suitable for those with acne-prone skin.
This night treatment doubles as an acne and anti-aging warrior thanks to an AHA complex that boosts skin cell renewal, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and balances skin tone and texture. In addition, it controls overactive sebum glands.
This gel contains two percent salicylic acid as well as ten percent exfoliating glycolic acid to attack blemishes and fine lines at once. Kapow!
Influensters rave about how this product reduces pore size and oily skin thanks to anti-inflammatory ingredient sulfur, which battles impurities and pollution. Plus, this mask deeply hydrates skin and plumps up wrinkles. Win win!
This foam cleanser boasts significant oil-reduction as well as skin barrier repair thanks to stellar skincare ingredients ceramides and hyaluronic acid.
It might be a bit of a splurge, but those really looking to tackle two skincare woes in one will benefit from Skinceuticals blend of two percent dioic acid and an alpha- and beta-hydroxy acid formulation, which aims to prevent acne, as well as reduce hyperpigmentation and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
