Acne, for many of us, comes during our teen years, then eventually disappears as we reach adulthood…or so we thought. Hormonal acne, stress pimples, and cystic zits can get the best of anyone at any age — acne doesn’t discriminate!

Sometimes an intensive skin care regime is the best way to go in order for your skin to maintain proper balance and strength. All of the products mentioned below are fabulous for retexturing damaged skin and preventing future breakouts from occurring.

But don’t forget to be extra diligent about SPF when using these types of serums, as many acids and retinals increase your skin’s susceptibility to sun damage — which is also why many of these serums are recommended for night use only.
