So, you had acne in the past and have been lucky enough to recover with clear skin. This is great news for acne-sufferers, but many people in the recovery stage still worry about how to care for their skin so that the acne scars are minimised and the spots stay gone for good. We’ve taken a look through our products and curated a list of five which will be most effective for post-acne skin:
This cream from Jan Marini is a powerful combination of glycolic, salicylic and azelaic acid provide a broad-range of benefits for dramatically smoother, clearer, more luminous looking skin. It has a broad range of benefits and will help to reduce the appearance of redness, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores and uneven texture.
Skin which has scarring from previous acne is often discoloured and suffering from hyperpigmentation, leaving your skin looking uneven. Elemis has developed this serum to help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation in just 28 days. Past imperfections, such as acne scarring, are visibly reduced while Vitamin C helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots, age spots and existing imperfections.
Skin which is acne prone can still retain some of the tendency towards redness and sensitivity, even after the spots are gone, so using a calming serum can really help to keep your skin under control. This serum from Dermalogica helps treat, correct and defend skin against inflammation and redness and helps interrupt inflammatory triggers to prevent flare-ups.
Skin which has recovered from acne is often uneven and in need of smoothing product to get it looking its best again. Elemis make this amazing resurfacing gel mask which is designed to help refine and smooth the skins surface. The mask encourages effective re-texturising of the skins surface and balancing sebum levels, without compromising natural pH levels.
Even after you get your acne under control, lots of people still suffer with oily skin which can be tricky to deal with. This oil serum from Decleor is specially designed to reduce excess sebum and shine for oily skin types. A powerful combination of essential and plant oils help treat, purify and mattify the skin to leave complexions soft, clear, refined and rebalanced with reduced shine and fewer visible pores.
