If you’ve ever struggled with adult acne you know how overwhelming it can be to deal. We’ve zeroed in on a handful of clean products that make a major impact: they clear, nourish, rebuild and reboot our skin without the use of harsh chemicals, toxins or synthetic junk.
While adjusting our diets and managing stress makes the biggest impact on adult acne long term, the right cocktail of topical products will do some heavy lifting in the healing process. Discover our team’s personal favorite acne products below, and let us know which ones have worked for you!
Odacite Jojoba Bead Exfoliator | The gentle, rounded beads in this gommage help clear away dead skin without stripping, scraping or irritating, while the creamy base feeds skin with deep, natural nourishment. CHECKOUT
Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser | This heavenly scented face wash cleans thoroughly and leaves the skin feeling fresh, hydrated and soothed. It’s so gentle you can even rub it across your eyes to remove makeup with ease. CHECKOUT
evanhealy Rose Geranium Facial Tonic | Aside from smelling absolutely amazing, this affordable spritz infuses skin with hydration, without the weight of a moisturizer (key for breakout prone skin!). Spray across a cleansed face before serums, or keep on your desk for a purifying refresh throughout the day. CHECKOUT
Pai Perfect Balance Blemish Serum | This light, creamy formula tones down redness, reduces inflammation, and prevents new breakouts from forming. Swipe on the soothing zinc infused formula on at night and wake up with an instantly clearer complexion. CHECKOUT
Odacite Bl + C Serum | Many with acne-prone skin might be terrified of adding more oil, but this serum is a miracle worker. As the oil is close to the viscosity of our skin’s natural oils, the blend absorbs easily and heals deeply. CHECKOUT
Tata Harper Clarifying Moisturizer | Thirsty skin can contribute to redness and inflammation. This ultra-hydrating moisturizer sinks into skin fast, doesn’t feel heavy and helps reduce redness. CHECKOUT
Herbivore Blue Tansy Mask | This mask does the intense work of a peel, but gradually (and so gently you can use it nightly, for several days in a row). Blue tansy is uniquely soothing to inflammation and fruit enzymes help dissolve damaged cells, making this mask amazing for reducing the appearance of active acne and acne scars. CHECKOUT
May Lindstrom The Problem Solver | It’s all in the name. This mask is a little intense (tingly in the best way and can take up to 45 min to dry), but it’s basically magic. Use it weekly for a major transformation. CHECKOUT
