When you’re going through puberty you hope and pray that once you’re done with it you’ll be done with acne. But in many cases, you won’t be. Many adults suffer from acne is well, and it can be caused by all sorts of things, from diet to lifestyle. When it comes to dealing with acne at any age the things that work can cross the boundaries of age.
Sometimes what works for your teenage acne will also work for your adult acne, but not always. Often it will depend on what is at the root of your acne problem. The best way to find that out is to visit a dermatologist. In the meantime, here are some things to try at home to fight acne issues at any age.
Homeopathic medicine works to heal what ails you instead of just masking it like some medications will do. Often homeopathic medicines have strange names, but there are plenty of them used in the skin and beauty business. A good place to learn about the best of these for your skin is at your local wellness store. Their workers should be well skilled in which remedies work for what ailments.
Make A Diet Change
Your acne could be caused by something you’re eating or maybe how you’re eating it. Some acne is caused by clogged pores and a bunch of grease from your not-so-healthy diet choices could be what’s clogging them. If you eat fresh and healthy foods and skip items that are loaded with salt, sugar, unhealthy fats, and grease, you may find that your acne clears up.
Sweat can help clear your pores, but it can also sometimes be the culprit for causing your acne. If you’re using the right stuff to keep your skin clean and cleansed you’ll have less acne from your sweat and your sweat will do its job of cleaning the impurities out of your body. Always shower after a good sweat, as well, so you can get rid of that gunk that was once at risk of clogging your pores.
Is It An Allergy?
Back to food for a moment. If it’s food that is causing your acne you may want to find out if you have an allergy or intolerance to that food. People that suffer from lactose intolerance will often get acne breakouts when they eat or drink dairy products. You might want to talk to your doctor and get checked out for food allergies if other precautions and steps aren’t helping clear up your skin.
Your Skin Care Method
Your skin care method, or lack of one, could be a problem too. If you have sensitive skin, harsh cleansers might be clogging your pores and causing painful acne. If you never wash your face in the morning or bed it’s just as bad. Talk to a skincare professional and find the right routine and products for your skin type.
