Help – I’m not a teenager so why do I still get spots?
Adult acne is generally caused by sebum, an oily substance produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands. Sebum can clog pores, attracting bacteria and causing inflammation. Breakouts are usually a result of overproduction of sebum, caused by hypersensitivity or hormonal imbalance or change.

And if prevention fails and you find yourself in an emergency situation, call in the big guns and grab your Trilogy Blemish Control Gel!
