On the spot.

If you thought the days of blemishes and breakouts were behind you after your teen years, it's time to face the facts. One in 5 women between ages 25 and 40 suffer from adult acne. (Because of hormonal changes, women are more prone to acne than men, but statistics show that at least a quarter of men will experience a breakout at some point in their adult lives. As men age, acne usually occurs along the chin, neck and jaw line.) Finding a quick fix for inflamed skin is easy in your younger years, but as you age, it's more difficult to find a solution. For a clear complexion, opt for a complete treatment kit that not only offers a remedy for red spots but also includes a cleanser, exfoliant and moisturizer that care for out-of-control acne, blackheads and blemishes. A la carte items can solve specific skin needs.
