But, to help your complexion fully recover to its radiant glory, look to these post-acne products stat.

1. Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution ($50): Even if you’ve freed yourself of breakouts at this point, you might still be dealing with scars and dark spots from the past. This powerful solution helps even the playing field of your skin’s appearance with a brighter and more radiant complexion.

2. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum ($165): Environmental stressors can still cause acne as a grown up. A daytime, vitamin-rich serum can serve as a barrier of protection. Bonus: You’ll totally love how firm and bright your complexion will look after you start using it.

3. Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil ($52): If your skin is prone to blemishes, it might seem like a big no-no to put more oil anywhere near your T-zone.
