Struggling with acne and wrinkles at the same time, can be very frustrating. Because, anti-acne products can make the skin dry and flaky and make the signs of aging more visible. On the other hand, anti-age products are creamy and thick, which can make the breakouts and clogged pores even worse.
So, here starts the dilemma what to do about this? And the answer to this dilemma is to use a mix of anti-acne products and anti-aging products. The anti-acne products should be gentle, non-drying and skin softening and the anti-aging products should have fluid, lightweight textures without any pore-clogging ingredients.
There are two essential anti-acne ingredients that should be used, as they’re very effective even with “adult acne.” They are skin-calming products that contain salicylic acid (BHA) benzoyl peroxide, as they work great to keep acne at a bay.
For the anti-aging purposes, should be used products that are loaded with ingredients that can help normalize and rejuvenate the skin and make it ultra-smooth and radiant. These ingredients don’t have to have a cream or even a lotion texture, they can be gel or fluid texture that can hydrate but, won’t clog pores. It can be helpful to use products that contain niacin-amide and retinol, as they are great in minimizing pores and improving the look of skin tone, loss of firmness, and wrinkles.
So, choosing the right skincare products for acne or signs of aging can be very hard when you're dealing with both of these problems at the same time. But, with the right knowledge and information, you can choose the best products that are perfect for your skin.
