Your Strategy Against Adult Acne

While most often acne has been found in adolescent skin, many individuals continue to have problems with acne on into their twenties, thirties, and beyond. Hormonal changes at various times of life can create acne conditions on the skin. It is important to consult a dermatologist for more severe cases of acne. But whether you see a doctor or simply need to take care of your acne yourself, follow some basic guidelines to reduce the severity and spread of acne.

Top 5 Acne Don’ts Don’t overcleanse. Most people strip their skin by overcleansing their acned areas. When this happens, the body works harder and produces more sebum (oil), clogging pores and causing more acne. Don’t touch your face. Touching your face, especially with dirty hands and fingers, could cause or further aggravate an acne problem. This also means don’t pick, squeeze, or rub acne. Doing so traumatizes the skin and slows the healing process, adding more breakouts. It could also lead to unwanted acne scars and blemishes. Don’t just be conscious of your hands. We’re on our phones all the time, and they can be dirty culprits against our skin. Be sure to clean your cell phone, work phones, and home phones often. Don’t consume too many sugary foods or drinks. Stay away from cakes, cookies, chocolates (I am not saying chocolate causes acne, consuming refined sugars are not good for any type of skin) , candies, sodas, and anything that has refined sugar as a main ingredient. Sugar clogs pores, dries out skin, and ages skin. Also food allergies can contribute to acne (E.g., dairy products may aggravate acne), as can certain medications, in particular, iodine-containing foods and steroid inhalers. Don’t use comedogenic products. Skin with acne is already battling an overproduction of oil (sebum), so don’t exacerbate the problem by using certain oil-based products. Watch out for typically oily products such as moisturizers, facial creams, and hair gels. Hair often gets in the face, and hair products definitely affect the skin on the face. However, skin with acne can be stripped leading to dry, oily skin especially in adults. If you have this problem, try to rebalance the epidermis with products like Talulah Oma Face Serum No.1 . It is an antiacne base of good oils like olive, grapeseed and rosehip, all which help to rebalance the skin’s oil production. Don’t dry out acne in the sun. Excessive sun exposure can aggravate acne. UV rays destroy cells and chronic exposure can cause your pores to enlarge because it causes the sebaceous glands, oil-producing glands in your skin, to increase in size. Acne Dos: Your Fighting Strategy Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. Many natural foods are loaded with vitamins and minerals, some of the best acne fighters around. For example: green, leafy vegetables and orange or yellow-colored fruits are rich in vitamin A. Vitamin A prevents overproduction of sebum. Oranges, strawberri...
