Acne is never fun. And it's — if possible —
even worse when you're an adult
Finding a great serum, however, can help pretty much every skin type — even
those prone to acne, according to Dr. Craig Kraffert and Today.com
. Kraffert says acne prone skin can benefit from concentrated hydration. He also adds that it's important to make your serum selection carefully.
On a similar note, Dr. Kenneth Howe recommends looking for soothing ingredients. "The latest research shows that acne-prone skin is systemically inflamed,"
he explained to Glamour
— and as such, you need serums that'll soothe, heal and hydrate your skin.
