Adult acne is more common than you may think: it is a pesky issue for over a third of adults in the UK and it can be tricky to cure but COSRX simplifies your anti-acne skincare routine.

More than a third of UK adults have suffered from acne but with so many products it can be hard to find the right ones. COSRX has simply effective solutions.


Linking acne and imperfections to young skin is a very common assumption but research run this Spring showed that over a third (34%) of UK adults have suffered from acne at some point in their life. What causes acne ranges from hormonal changes to stress factors, and skincare treatments are equally wide and varied on the market. How to find the right spot treatment for you?

Building an effective routine for acne-prone skin can be daunting but Korean skincare giant COSRX has many ways to simplify it. Below is the lowdown on some of the best-selling spot treatments from COSRX!
