Some comments about adult acne for people in their 30’s

Bookmark and Share

Adults, and particularly women, tend to flare occasionally with adult acne. In women, fluctuation of hormones during the menstrual cycle play a significant role. Aside from this a few simple measures of prevention of acne include:
1. Cleansing your face twice daily! with a great cleanser! This will remove excess sweat and fatty residue that traps the pores and feeds bacteria the excess oils. By the way, never sleep with your makeup for the same reason.
2. While working out at the gym never put your face on the vinyl on a workout bench and do not touch your face while working out wash or shower right after this. Remember you could also get acne on your back.
3.Fatty meals, nuts and chocolate have again been linked to an exacerbation of acne. Eat them with measure.
4. Take plenty of antioxidants. Fruits are preferred like blueberries or oranges. Otherwise, vitamin C 1 gram twice daily ( you’ll stay looking younger too!)
5. Continuous use of a thin layer of a retinoid cream on your face at bedtime will not only keep your skin smooth and looking healthy, but will also prevent acne flares.
6. Stress will trigger acne. There is even the ‘vacation pimple’ because of all the stress of traveling and packing, plus the change in food and sleeping habits that can happen on a vacation.
7. Avoid heavy makeup ( mousse and mineral makeups are preferred for acne prone skin). Avoid heavy oily sunnlocks. Micronized preparations of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide sunblocks offer superior coverage and do not flare acne
