It’s tough enough facing the signs of aging but it’s a double whammy when not only are wrinkles creeping across your face but you have acne to go along with it. And acne and wrinkles are quite common in older men and women.
Unfortunately, most people find the more they try to treat acne and wrinkles, the worse the condition gets! Products used to dry out acne tend to strip the skin of oils exaggerating wrinkles. Products used to treat wrinkles may clog the pores which contributes to acne. To treat both acne and wrinkles you will want to be gentle, work with your skin, not against it.
So what do you do if you have acne and wrinkles? If your acne is severe a visit to a dermatologist for acne skin care is a good idea. If you have moderate to mild acne a carefully planned at home regime may be the right solution.
Start by throwing out any medicated cleansers and harsh topical treatments that remove the moisture from the skin. Believe it or not adding moisture to the skin can dramatically improve acne. Use a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil, Purpose or Cerave.
Benzoyl peroxide which is common in many acne spot treatments may have negative side effects especially for aging skin.
Use a combination of products that work synergistically to treat acne and wrinkles. Our top recommendation is to use a combination of Dermagist Acne Treatment System for acne and Dermagist Complete Rejuvenation System for wrinkles.
These two treatment systems work together to combat wrinkles and reduce acne. The Dermagist Acne Treatment System helps minimize redness and inflammation and kills acne causing bacteria. But it does this in a way that is gentle on the skin. The ingredients in the acne treatment system calm, soothe and heal skin.
The Dermagist Complete Rejuvenation System reduces enlarged pores, age spots, lines and more.
You can overhaul your skin and minimize acne and wrinkles with proper care. Be persistent and consistent and you will see improvement quickly and dramatic improvement in a few months.
