It’s no secret that I dealt with years of unexplained acne in my late 20’s. For those of you who have ever struggled with uncontrollable adult acne, you know the pain of it. Not knowing what triggered a new pimple, the anxiety of not being able to be sure you’d have clear skin for a big event or even worse, not feeling comfortable without makeup because of acne scars. I’ve teamed up with Neutrogena to discuss what helps me when I have to deal with my breakouts.
Over the last two years, I’ve really gotten my acne under control but that doesn’t mean I no longer deal with it at all. Any time I do, you can see the aftereffects all over my face from the stubborn marks they leave behind. I recently picked up Neutrogena Stubborn Acne™ AM Treatment and Neutrogena Stubborn Marks™ PM Treatment while browsing the aisles at Target. The power duo is designed to combat acne and the marks they leave behind in an easy morning and nighttime routine.
I can deal with pimples, especially when I know I won’t have to live with the dark spots they leave behind since these products give results in just one week. With consistency, I notice a reduction in red inflammatory skin and uneven skin tone and most importantly – clearer skin!
Even though you can pick them up locally, the ingredients are inspired by the #1 dermatologist acne prescription. The Stubborn Acne AM Treatment features 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide and works all day to kill adult acne causing bacteria, while the Retinol SA in Stubborn Marks PM Treatment visibly reduces the post-acne marks that are left behind.
Knowing that the damage done to my skin after a pimple finally runs its course isn’t permanent gives me so much relief. I’ve shared more about my skincare story here. Do you struggle with random breakouts and leftover marks? What do you use to treat it? Share below!
