Mature skin has special needs.
Harsh salicylic or benzoyl peroxide based products aimed at treating acne in younger skin, can strip mature skin of needed moisture, while disturbing the skin’s delicate PH balance. This can cause an inflammatory response that makes acne worse, and could trigger more oil secretion and more pimples, as well as leaving the skin feeling too tight. Unbalanced skin can be reactive and is at risk for future breakouts and possible acne scarring. Products that over-dry mature skin can also exacerbate fine lines, wrinkles, sensitivity and redness.
