The most effective skin care for wrinkles, acne and more

Read on for results-oriented solutions to common skincare concerns

Dealing with a complexion woe like acne or wrinkles can feel like an isolating experience. But you’re definitely not alone — and brilliant cosmetic chemists have worked hard to come up with effective solutions for these very common skin concerns. Whether you’re trying to keep insatiably dry skin looking dewy, want to slow the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or are not content to let your breakouts run the show, these problem-solving formulas are ready to get to work.

For consistent acne management

If you’re breakout-prone and currently tackling one zit at a time with sporadic spot treatments, revising your strategy and implementing a consistent preventative routine can help you stay a step ahead of regular breakouts. ProActiv+ 3-Step 30-Day Set contains three simple steps: a smoothing exfoliator, a pore targeting treatment and a complexion-perfecting hydrator. Designed to work together, the trio inhibits excess oil, kills acne bacteria deep in pores and soothes irritation for clearer skin, all the time.

For a reduced breakout timeline

Pimples have poor manners: they always overstay and come back to visit too soon. They’ll even bring friends! La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) Global Action Acne Face Treatment helps curb that rude behaviour. The efficacious cream reduces the life cycle of a blemish, purifying clogged pores and allowing skin to heal in order to prevent relapse.

For serious firming

Containing a buffet of powerful ingredients, Filorga NCTF-Reverse Cream replenishes aging skin, giving it everything it needs to bounce back to a more plump, radiant state. The luxurious cream’s ultra-concentrated blend of the brand’s NCTF revitalizing complex, hydrating hyaluronic acid, plus Vitamins A, H and E to help boost firmness and smooth wrinkles.

For speedy wrinkle smoothing

The wrinkle-smoothing secret behind No7 Laboratories Line Correcting Booster Serum is a high concentration of Matrixyl 3000 Plus, a wrinkle peptide technology that’s clinically proven to reduce stubborn lines! Whether your concern is crow’s feet, laugh lines or 11s (a.k.a. the deep vertical furrows between the eyebrows), this targeted treatment offers fast, visible results.

For featherweight hydration

All complexions crave daily hydration, but your skin type (and personal preference) may not be smitten with a heavy face cream. Enter Avène Hydrance Aqua-Gel. Combining the light texture of a water-infused gel with the restorative hydration of a cream, the soothing formula sinks into skin leaving a dewy, never greasy finish. Plus, it’s powered up with anti-pollution protection.

For deep moisture from head to toe

Wish you could soak your dry, scaly limbs in a vat of lotion? Try this instead. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Riche is an extra-nourishing version of the best-selling French import. The non-greasy multi-use oil, sourced from 98% natural ingredients, is a reparative mix of seven botanical oils and Vitamin E, and can be used from head to toe (and even on your hair!).
