The problem: Adult acne is on the rise. Our diet is a big factor – dairy is known to cause breakouts – as well as pollution and stress. When we’re under pressure, it increases cortisol levels, which leads to more oil secretion and spots.
The solution: Avoid dairy if you can and make sure you cleanse your skin thoroughly morning and night. La Roche Posay Breakout Corrector, £10, does what it says on the tin. Its unbeatable cocktail of niacinamide, salicylic acid and piroctone olomine works to take down inflammation, exfoliate and banish bacteria so pimples are sent packing. However tempted you are, don’t pick at it – you could double the life of the spot and cause scarring!
