How To Wash Away Wrinkles + Acne
Over 25 and still suffering from breakouts? You’re not alone. And, no, you shouldn’t still be using the same acne products designed for breakouts on teenage skin because the fact is (sigh) you no longer have teenage skin. Rather, your skin is starting to show the early (or not so early) signs of aging and you want to combat wrinkles as much as you want to send your breakouts packing, which is why you need a multitasking product designed to fight wrinkles and acne all at the same time.
The Best Anti-Acne + Anti-Aging Cleansers
Murad Anti-Aging Acne Time Release Cleanser ($32)
We love this anti-aging and anti-ance cleanser from Murad, which has both encapsulated salicylic acid for a long-acting acne treatment that stays active even after rinsing, as well as amino acids, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants to keep skin hydrated, supple, and youthful.
Olay Regenerist Regenerating Cream Cleanser ($7.99)
This creamy formula is packed with oxygenated derma-beads that deep clean without over-drying and gently exfoliate to accelerate skin cells’ natural regeneration process. Plus, it’s packed with powerhouse anti-aging ingredients too.
Obagi CLENZIderm M.D. Daily Care Foaming Cleanser ($39)
With 2% salicylic acid to neutralize acne causing bacteria and unclog pores, menthol to soothe inflammation and reduce redness, and betaine to balance pH levels and sebum production, this really tackles your acne head on. Just be sure to follow with non-pore-clogging anti-aging moisturizer.
Arcona The Solution Pads ($48)
Use these nighttime treatment pads to stimulate rapid cell renewal, deeply exfoliate, decongest and refine pores, reverse photo-aging, smooth fine lines, and clear acne-prone skin all in one quick swipe!
