Hi, I'm Kelli. I'm an aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics, and I'm going to talk to you a little bit about adult acne medication. Probably the main difference between, say, teenage acne and adult acne is your teenage acne may be more frequent and also may be wide...more widespread, whereas your adult acne may just be...may be just centralized to one location or you might just get one here and there because most of the time, your adult acne is more hormonal. Not that your teenage acne isn't, but teenage acne can also be caused from oilier skin, lack of exfoliation, and also improper skin care. But typically, your adult acne will be more in this area, which is more hormonal. So the first thing you want to determine is whether...what your skin type is, whether you're dry or you're oily, and that can kind of determine what amount of acne medication that you can handle. So for instance, this is a salicylic-based cleanser, which may be good if you're a little bit more on the oily side, but you may want a lesser percentage if you are more on the drier side. So the most important thing to probably do is to get a really good treatment and this particular brand, Murad, has some really good acne treatments that are salicylic acid based. This is a one-percent salicylic acid based exfoliating treatment, so this might be good if you're more of an oily skin. They also have a gentle acne treatment, which is a .5 percent salicylic acid, and that might be good if you're more of a drier skin. They also have an anti-aging acne medication if you want to kind of get your anti-aging product and your acne product all in one. So those are some really good adult acne medications.
