“Blemish busters made for teens are far too drying for mature skin,” Johnson advises. “Also avoid very emollient anti wrinkle face creams because they can exacerbate breakouts.”

Instead, Johnson advises that peri-menopausal or menopausal women experiencing acne should find anti aging skin products that help accelerate cell turnover. “Dead cells need to be eliminated and pores de-clogged for fresher looking skin to emerge,” she said. “The overlap of wrinkles and blemishes is being addressed more frequently by anti aging skin products that target adult breakouts and photo-aged skin with glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and retinol.”

Johnson is a beauty and fashion director with three decades of experience working with models, celebrities, makeup artists, dermatologists and thousands of everyday real women in their 40s, 50s, and 60s.
