8. Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid are Your Friends
Anyone who’s ever struggled with acne in their lifetime is probably familiar with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Both of these ingredients have been designed and specialized to expressly treat skin blemishes, pimples, redness and acne scars. The key, when dealing with acne as an adult, is to bypass the harsh treatments and products designed for teenaged skin. Instead, look for gentler versions of cleansers, exfoliators and spot treatments crafted for sensitive or mature skin. This will help eliminate your breakouts, redness and inflammation without damaging your skin.
