Skin care problems are not mutually exclusive. While it's common to struggle with acne breakouts and fine lines at the same time, it’s especially frustrating not knowing which skin care regimen addresses both. We’re here to help. Keep reading to learn how to simultaneously fight breakouts and wrinkles.

1. Choose the right cleanser

Choose a cleanser that contains both active, acne-fighting and anti-aging ingredients. Papaya Cleanser contains salicylic acid to gently exfoliate skin cells and deeply cleanse your skin. It reduces acne breakouts by keeping pores clear of dirt and bacteria. It’s also formulated with anti-aging peptides to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Another effective acne-fighting cleanser that also combats wrinkles is Perfect Glycolic Cleanser. It’s formulated with 15% glycolic acid to exfoliate, antioxidants and botanicals to leave dull skin looking bright and fresh.

2. Simplify your routine

Don’t overdo it. Never use two products together that accomplish the same thing. Not only can this irritate your skin, it can actually make your skin worse. Also, avoid thick or heavy formulations that could clog your pores.

3. Introduce a lightweight, anti-aging serum

Use an anti-aging serum that targets fine lines and wrinkles without clogging pores or irritating your skin. Apply your serum after cleansing and before applying moisturizer. We recommend CE Serum. Formulated with vitamins C and E and ferulic acid, CE Serum has anti-aging benefits and offers enhanced protection from environmental damage. 

4. Try a gentle exfoliator

Gentle exfoliating treatments are great for targeting both acne and wrinkles. When formulated with both glycolic acid and alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), exfoliating treatments increase cell turnover to reveal brighter, fresher skin while helping clear acne, blackheads and milia. Try Perfect Glycolic Treatment 15% or 25% - it’s perfect for all skin types and a go-to for dual skin care concerns.

Making these changes to your skin care routine will help you simultaneously treat acne and wrinkles for a smoother, blemish-free complexion. If you have additional questions about Revercel products, let us know on Facebook or Instagram. Our doctors are here to help.
