Adult acne is never a fun topic but the fact is many women suffer from acne well into adulthood. Adult acne is often caused by hormonal changes and differs from the teenage form. As we age our skin becomes more sensitive and less resilient. While we always recommend treating your skin gently no matter your age, as a teen, we may have been able to use more harsh solutions to rid us of our spots as our skin recovered much quicker. Now, as we age, we battle a slower skin renewal rate, heavy free radical damage and we also want to fight the signs of aging and adding acne to this list of tiny fights makes it a very complicated issue. We’ve rounded up some of our top picks in world of adult acne solutions to help balance the fight for you.
Kellett Clear Skincare Regimen Kit, $220
Toronto based dermatologist Dr. Lisa Kellett developed this line of skincare because her patients complained about treating acne while treating signs of aging at the same time. The kit comes complete with a polish gel cleanser, moisturizing gel, acne treatment and sunscreen spray. The line is designed to treat acne, fade discolouration (often caused by acne) and reduce signs of aging.
