For clearer skin…
Proactiv 3-Step System
Bring it back to the basics with this 2% salicylic acid at-home treatment. Consistency is key when it comes to fighting acne, so make sure you follow a skin care regimen both day and night. (Be sure to check out skin care tips in your 20s, 30s, and 40s for more info.)
To diminish dark spots…
Alpha Hydroxy Spot Light Targeted Skin Lightener
It’s the plight of the brown girl: you get a pimple, it goes away, you’re left with dark spots that take forever to get rid of. This treatment which contains both glycolic acid—which brightens and evens skin tone, and hydroquinone—which helps to fade dark spots, is quite effective in getting rid of the pesky culprits. However, the downside to any spot treatment is that the over the counter products tend to work best on “newer” spots, so a trip to the dermatologist might be necessary for older spots.
