Whether you've struggled with acne since your teens or your face started breaking out in your twenties, dealing with acne isn't fun. Unfortunately acne is often attributed to genetics, but long sweat sessions at the gym and regular exposure to the elements certainly doesn't help. Everyone's skin responds to acne medication in different ways, but here are a few products perfect for adult acne that you probably haven't tried.
It's nice when any type of solution is wrapped up in a neat little package and handed to you. That's exactly what Zimaxa does. With the three-step system, you receive a redefining cleanser, deep pore exfoliator and hydroclear spot treatment along with an exfoliating sponge. The process is simple and error proof, plus the formula won't irritate your skin. While the entire system is great at treating white heads and black heads, the spot treatment is especially nice for more prominent pimples -- just use the wand to apply the medication to your zits and you'll experience reduced size and redness in no time. Pick up the whole system for $40 at Zimaxa.
For the woman who prefers beauty products made from organic fruits, vegetables and essential oils, LUSH Cosmetics is worth looking into. Acne-prone individuals will love combining Herbalism with Grease Lightening for the perfect one-two punch to clear up skin. Herbalism uses China clay to clear out pores and combines it with naturally exfoliating ground rice bran, rosemary, nettle and chamomile to tame redness and even skin tone. Follow up your face washing with Grease Lightening a fast-drying, zit-zapping tea tree and rosemary gel that also reduces shine of oily skin.
It's not always easy to carve out time to wash your face immediately before and after exercise, but on-the-go solutions like Dr. Asarch's DERMASpa Face Off make it simple. Just grab a pad from the container and swipe it across your face to cleanse, tone and moisturize, all in a single step. The Face Off pads even contain antioxidants that help protect against future skin damage. Follow up your quickie face wash with DERMASpa Oil Control Serum to fight bacteria and redness. Bingo! You have a full, water-free face wash in five minutes or less!
