Our skin is as individual as we are, but for most of us, the first noticeable signs of ageing − fine lines and wrinkles − start to appear from around the age of 25.
By then, many people who had acne during their puberty years will have grown out of it. But, for up to 40% of us, symptoms continue well into adulthood1. And, of these, 75%- 85% are women2. You can find out more about the causes of adult acne in Acne Tarda.
So how do you deal with both at once? Is it possible to reduce and prevent both blemishes and wrinkles at the same time? This article gives advice on how to give ageing, acne-prone skin the care it needs. It also recommends a few different routines (depending on whether or not you are taking acne medication) that will help you to delay and reduce the visible signs of ageing and keep blemishes under control.
