COMMON PRODUCTS TO COMBAT ADULT ACNE!

There are so many acne and breakout busting treatments on the market. It’s common to get a feeling of product overload. Dr. Magarita Lolis, a Board-Certified Dermatologist in northern New Jersey, takes a holistic approach to treating skincare issues.  Here Dr. Lolis breaks down the list of common products to consider using for adult acne, with the benefits of each.

Go simple on cleanser. People who are prone to breakouts may use a cleanser with salicylic acid triggering excessive dryness which only increases oil production leading to a breakout cycle. Gentler products that are appealing to all skin types, such as Cetaphil or CeraVe, are great options because they don’t strip away moisture and soothe the face.

Exfoliate weekly. They key here is not to be too harsh!. You want to gently rub product into your face in circular motion then rinse with luke warm water. There are new products available with charcoal an ingredient which does a great job controlling oil in acne prone skin. People with sensitive skin should opt for an exfoliating mask, which is less irritating.

Soothe with serums. Acne prone skin needs moisture not oil. Serums that address acne without compromising moisture are a great bet. Serums penetrate the skin quickly making them a great option for nighttime healing as you sleep. (more…)

I love gold). I use both Smashbox X-Rated Mascara and Covergirl LashBlast Volume Mascara, and fill in brows with a little bit of eye liner rubbed onto my angled brush.
