Adult Acne that Tweens and Teens can Swipe from Their Parents.

By Laura Medina

Due to hormones and increasing stress, acne is a part of life whether we like it or not.  To prevent further stress caused by disfiguring acne scars, which are more stressful and way more expensive to get rid, let's start prevention early or at least, slow down and ease off the "other side of aging," acne scars.

Arbonne's acne-fighting skincare regimen, powered by salicylic acid and efficacious botanicals combined with prebiotics, delivers skin that looks more even-toned and healthy without over-drying.
Deep Pore Acne Cleanser

This cleanser is actually a traditional soak-in and dry clay mask that soaks up the oily residue that mixed with environmentally pollutants.  In other words, pore-blocking "gunk."  Once dried and scrub up, the gunk is out but your surrounding skin is intact, without over-drying.

Strong enough to deliver a thorough cleansing of dirt, oil and debris
Gentle formula, with prebiotics and soothing botanicals, cleanses while leaving skin hydrated to promote healthy-looking skin
Removes dead skin cells and impurities with exfoliation
Penetrates pores to clear up acne blemishes; helps support smaller pore size
Dermatologist- and allergy-tested; non-comedogenic
Suitable for ages 12+ and all skin types
 Vegan; formulated without gluten

Salicylic acid offers antibacterial benefits
Prebiotics or alpha-glucan oligosaccharide helps mattify and moisturize skin
Naturally derived polysaccharide protects skin’s moisture barrier
Sage (Salvia officinalis) leaf extract, calendula (Calendula officinalis) flower extract and witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) help condition and soothe skin
White willow (Salix alba) bark extract boosts exfoliation to reveal the next layer of skin

Soothing Overnight Mask

This lightweight mask is actually pretty clear, clear enough to wear under and over foundation and/or sunscreen.  A vast improvement over old-fashion thick, crusty zit cream.  This isn't chalky zit cream but a translucent lotion that repairs and balances, calms, soothes and hydrates skin, and even minimizes redness.

Provides cooling comfort to soothe and calm skin, a must during Summer and Back to School.
Balancing formula with prebiotics helps condition and moisturize skin to support clean, radiant-looking skin
Delivers beneficial, non-greasy hydration for soft, smooth skin
Helps prevent impurities from settling into and clogging pores
Dermatologist- and allergy-tested; non-comedogenic
Suitable for ages 12+ and all skin types • Vegan; formulated without gluten.  This is stuff that both mom and kid will borrow or "steal."

Prebiotics or alpha-glucan oligosaccharide helps mattify and moisturize skin  Exopolysaccharide, derived from marine algae, helps mattify skin and control sebum by absorbing it at skin’s surface. Marine algae is hot right now.
Naturally derived polysaccharide protects skin’s moisture barrier
Sage (Salvia officinalis) leaf extract, calendula (Calendula officinalis) flower extract and witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) help condition and soothe skin
Proprietary sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides) oil, a natural source of omega-9, -6, -3, and -7 fatty acids, maintains skin’s barrier function

SUNDAY RILEYSpace Race Fight Acne, Oil + Pores at Warp Speed Kit

SUNDAY RILEYMartian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner

A formula that instantly transforms from a cooling gel to a water toner as it clarifies, removes oil, then visibly tightens pores for clear, matte skin, this chemist's daughter is impressed with Sunday Riley's innovations and formulations.

She thinks of real problems, especially busy kids and moms in a hot, sweaty climate then tackles them with high-tech methods and all-natural ingredients.  She just amps these all-natural ingredients to another level.

Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner is formulated to target oily and acne-prone skin concerns. It immediately melts from a treatment gel to a water toner as it is massaged into the skin. Bentonite clay mattifies excess oil while visibly reducing pore size. Marshmallow and green tea soothe and diminish the look of redness for a calmer-feeling complexion, while cucumber and witch hazel extracts tone and tighten. Manuka, a relative of tea tree oil, in conjunction with black cumin and magnolia bark extracts, provides purifying properties to balance oily and problem skin conditions while promoting a visibly improved, clearer, smoother, and shine-free complexion. Skin is mattified and prepped for further skin care or color application. It also helps to keep foundation set all day.

Bentonite Clay: Clarifies and tightens the appearance of pores by pulling out oil and pore-clogging debris. Helps to set foundation by removing excess oil.
Marshmallow extract: Soothes and diminishes the appearance of redness.
Cucumber, Green Tea, and Witch Hazel Extracts: Tone and tighten the skin.
Manuka: Contains naturally purifying properties, which can help to visibly clarify the skin.

Manuka Honey is an anti-bacterial that moisturizes.

SUNDAY RILEYSaturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask

Yes, using sulfur is old fashion way to dry up and seal and heal pimples but Sunday Riley took it to another level.  

Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask contains maximum levels of sulfur to penetrate pores to dry and clear up existing acne while preventing new blemishes from forming. It treats multiple forms of acne, including blocked, congested pores, inflammatory acne, hormonal acne, and acne rosacea.  Sulfur 10%: Dries and clears up acne, while preventing new blemishes and blackheads from forming; fights multiple forms of acne including hormonal breakouts, acne rosacea, and inflammatory acne.

Making sure it's not the crusty cream of yore, Sunday Riley included Niacinamide 4%: Reduces the appearance of acne and rosacea-related surface redness and improves congested skin.  Four percent niacinamide promotes clear skin, while boosting skin's healthy-looking radiance.

Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate: Reduces the appearance of acne-related surface redness.

Highly potent tea tree oil, standardized for high levels of terpinen-4-ol, partnered with manuka oil, purify the skin for a smooth and clear complexion after each use.  

To further it's acne without the crusty cream or damaging surrounding skin, Zinc PCA 1%: Helps absorb excess oil for clearer, more matte skin.  Zinc PCA and bentonite clay help to clear impurities, reduce excess oil, and soothe the appearance of surface redness, without over-drying.

Although the face is what people notice first, during summer months and for those living in warm climates year-round, having all over clear skin is as equally important as having a clear face. Sleeveless shirts, shorts and tank tops all show a fair amount of skin and you want to go out feeling comfortable and confident. Therefore, it’s important to have all the right acne-fighting products.

Anyone who's in the throes of hormones, regardless which life stage you're in, you'll break out anywhere, at the gym especially or post-workout or just sweating.

That’s where AcneFree Body Clearing Acne Spray comes to the rescue! Now, you can easily clear those hard to reach body breakouts with an easy-to-apply, acne-fighting, continuous spray formula. AcneFree Body Clearing Acne Spray is a lightweight, non-sticky, oil-free application that can help to treat and prevent breakouts. AcneFree Body Clearing Acne Spray delivers dermatologist recommended ingredients such as Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid which act as exfoliants to help remove dead skin cells. Other soothing ingredients, including aloe and other plant and root extracts, help even skin tone. The clear, quick drying spray can be used at any angle for ultimate convenience, helping to ensure effective ingredients get to those hard to reach areas such as back and shoulders, which tend to be especially prone to breakouts.

Always remember to cleanse skin thoroughly before use and apply to the entire affected area. Start with one application per day, increasing to twice a day if needed.
This is real adult complexion, sans zit pit scars or lesser wrinkles.
