GROWN women suffering from spots – fear no more, as we have the ultimate guide to your blemish blitzing routine.
The sad news is that acne isn’t always for teenagers, with more and more people in their 20s and 30s also suffering from a clogged-up complexion.
But thanks to an influx of products now available on the high street, tackling adult acne has never been easier.
Here’s some of our favourite beauty products to help you tackle pesky pimples once and for all.




Tropic Pure Lagoon Blemish Prevention Serum, £42



PRODUCTS that help to prevent spots from forming in the first place should be at the peak of your skincare regime. 
The new Blue Lagoon Blemish Prevention Serum by skincare brand Tropic contains complexion calming and bacteria busting ingredients for the city dweller.
Boasting Bioflavanoids, which been proven to reduce visible blackheads by 41 per cent, and prebiotics to help boost the skin’s natural flora with healthy bacteria, this is perfect for helping to  break the spot-forming cycle.
This lightweight serum hydrates and clarifies the skin while helping to nourish from the inside out.
Use this underneath your anti-ageing Retinol serum at night and first thing in the morning before makeup.
I love how quickly this water-like texture penetrates the skin and that it’s not greasy underneath makeup.

Mary Kay ClearProof Oil-Free Moisturiser, £17





AN oil-free daily moisturiser will prevent clogged pores which can later turn into spots.
This one by Mary Kay is specially formulated for those suffering from acne and combination skin types.
Even oily skin can lack proper hydration, which can lead to skin producing more oil, resulting in further breakouts.
This lightweight and quick-absorbing formula soothes skin while replenishing moisture to provide balanced hydration.
It also works great as a primer underneath makeup.

Super Facialist Anti-Blemish Mask, £9.95



THERE’S nothing like a weekly face mask to help purge the skin after too much indulgence.
Super Facialist recommends their Salicylic Acid based Anti-Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask to stop spots in their tracks.
Containing a cocktail of ingredients including Salicylic Acid to help unclog congested skin, skin-enhancing Niacin (Vitamin B3), and oil-absorbing Dead Sea Mud rich in vitamins, this clay mask is perfect for detoxing at home.
It also contains anti-ageing Avocado Oil rich in Vitamins A, D and E and Acacia Honey further help skin rebalance itself to reveal a clearer, refreshed looking complexion.
This dries super fast and makes skin feel firmer, less irritated and far brighter after the first use.

Available from Boots stores. 



Epionce Purifying Wash, £36




A DOUBLE cleanse a day not only takes the makeup away – but also helps prevent spots.
Leading Doctor Mervyn Patterson recommends using a cleanser containing Salicylic acid for acne-prone skin such as Epionce’s Purifying Wash.
This lightweight, mint-scented gel wash removes makeup without stripping the skin, which can create more damage and increase inflammation.
The Purifying Wash helps to unclog dirt from pores and helps to eliminate oil to clear blemishes and improve skin texture.
I use this after an oil-based cleanser to make sure there’s no greasy residue before toning and moisturising the skin.

Jane Scrivner Skinfoliate, £26



TWICE a week I use a gentle exfoliating lotion such as Jane Scrivner Skinfoliate, £26.
This contains a 100% natural and organic blend of AHA & BHA acids, formulated to penetrate every level of skin to get rid of dead cells and brighten lacklustre complexions.
Combining a natural blend of phyto origin malic, lactic, salicylic, citric, tartaric and glycolic acids taken from pineapple, burdock, bilberry, orange, lemon, sugar maple, witch-hazel and white willow, it’s also great for blemish prone skin types.
Perfect for those who suffer from pesky blackheads and whiteheads.




Rosalique 3 in 1 Anti-Redness Miracle Formula, £29.99




EVEN if your skincare regime is in tip top shape, sometimes we still need a bit of extra help for covering up spots and redness.
This amazing 3 in 1 Anti-Redness Cream from Rosalique is perfect for making acne-prone and flared-up skin look that bit less obvious.
Before you go in with a heavy camouflage with your makeup, start with this triple-action CC cream to hide redness, rosacea and acne scarring.
Not only does this contain an SPF of 25, it also delivers ultra-fine micro encapsulated balls that are green on the outer edge to initially neutralise skin redness and will instantly conceal, mask redness and unevenness.
Containing a miracle myriad of clinically active ingredients, this will also help to reduce inflammation and redness whilst further soothing and calming irritated skin.
Skin looks neutralised, more even and slightly tanned after using this without even a hint of redness.
