64 yrs, still have breakouts in t zone.
New to SSC. What would be the best line for me?
Also, can you tell me the order of & when to use the products.
Thank you, Pam D
Many products manufactured to help acne contain salicylic acid. I am a bit older than you are, Pam D, and just about every dermatologist I went to gave me products containing it.,
Some of the most famous skincare lines for acne contain it as their main acne fighting ingredient. But many of us cannot handle even a tiny amount of it. Until a doctor tried me on another acne ingredient, I showed no improvement.
Every skin care and cosmetic product I purchase, I go online and find an acne site that lists “comedogenic” or “acnegenic” ingredients. “Oil free” means nothing, and should not be used as a guide for buying anything. Plenty of oil free ingredients cause acne.
Many lists will organize the ingredients by grade: 1-3 or 1-5. I am extremely responsive to ingredients that cause acne. I cannot tolerate any product that contains even one highly rated ingredient, but sometimes I can tolerate one or two lower level acne causing ingredients, especially if they are listed near the bottom of the ingredients list since they are organized by volume. But I still must be extremely careful with everything that goes on my face.
Hope this information helps you, there are many sites where you can find lists of ingredients to avoid. Good luck.
U might want to ask your question on Cecilia’s thread called “How are you changing your beauty routine to combat the warmer weather?” on the Beauty forum. 😀
