Adult Acne


With the right products, you can attack blemishes in one fell swoop

1. Expert exfoliation

Acne Treatment Pads

Exfoliating pads are a gentler way to remove dead skin cells and excess surface oil that cause blackheads and spots. Developed for adult skin, the glycolic acid-soaked pads treat acne, blemishes and enlarged pores while reducing wrinkles.

£48 for 60 pads by CANE + AUSTIN; spacenk.co.uk

2. The anti-ageing treatment

Time Release Acne Cleanser

This high-performance solution includes an innovative anti-acne treatment technology that continues to treat spots even after it has been rinsed off. Amino and hyaluronic acids bind moisture to the skin to preserve a more youthful appearance.

£29 for 200ml by DR MURAD; murad.co.uk

3. The protector

Blemish + Age Defense Serum

Highly potent serum that minimises imperfections and visible signs of ageing simultaneously. By correcting the damage that acne and blemishes can cause to the skin, active ingredients encourage cell-by-cell exfoliation to decongest pores while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Irregularities are reduced and a smoother, brighter and younger-looking complexion is achieved.

£75 for 30ml by SKINCEUTICALS;


4. The moisturiser

Breakout Powder & Cream

Working together to combat even the most problematic of skin, the powder contains an antibacterial active ingredient that emulsifies with the cream to target overproduction of sebum and clogged pores.

This high-strength solution is formulated for targeting specific breakouts, drying out pimples and preventing scarring. Apply to problem areas with a cotton bud and let the magic work overnight.

6. Blotch-free maintenance

Sebum Clearing Masque

Created specifically for breakout-prone skin, kaolin and bentonite clay cleans, purifies and absorbs excess surface oil to help prevent future breakouts. Spiraea ulmaria extract stimulates the skin’s natural antibacterial agents to prevent a backlash from spot-causing bacteria.
