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 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.
