You know, teens are not the only ones affected by acne. Did you know that adult acne affects 25% of adult men and 50% of adult women?
I consider myself lucky. I never had acne as a teen and can count on my hand how many times I've had a pimple on my face. This is rare, I know. Many friends my age are dealing with a lot of hormonal acne right now and are trying some unconventional methods to deal with it. Did you ever hear of using toothpaste or glass cleaner on a zit? That doesn't work. Nor will sun dry up breakouts. And guess what? You can wear makeup if you have acne. It will not make it worse.
What you need are the right products and consistent use. Every night, take off the day and cleanse skin with solutions that are proven to work. One of these Neutrogena beauties will be right for you and your acne prone skin.
Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser
This gentle foaming cleanser removes makeup, dirt and oil from even the most sensitive or acne prone skin. It was dermatologist developed just for sensitive skin types, actually. It rinses away clean without over-drying and simply leaves skin soft.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes
If you like cleansing wipes, these will do the trick. These great smelling, thick wipes, wipe away acne-causing sweat, dirt and oil and they work anywhere. I suggest keeping a few in your purse or gym bag to get rid of those real acne causing culprits on the go.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash
This acne cleanser is the #1 dermatologist recommended cleanser. It combines a salicylic acid treatment and gentle cleanser in one formula. It eliminates oil and unclogs pores as it helps to prevent further breakouts from happening.
