Unbelievable reasons why adults have acne

People have the misconception that they will get rid of acne when they will come in their 20s. Also, they think that if they have not experienced acne until now, there are few chances them to deal with this issue in the future. Well, the fact is that acne does not appear only when you are a teenager. But as an adult you find more difficult to deal with this health issue, because you do not know what its cause can be. You are not the only adult who has breakouts. You will not experience acne until your wrinkles start to get noticed, but you will need to identify what causes facilitate their appearance. The fact is that lately more and more adults are dealing with this issue. If in the past this was a common issue for teenagers, nowadays we can say that it is something common for both adults and teenagers. The persons who had acne when they were teenagers will probably experience it even when they will become adults, because they probably have oily skin, and this facilitates pimple breakouts.   Stress can be one of the causes Stress is one of the main causes that lead to hormonal changes. You may think that stress can cause a lot of health issues, but this is not one of them. Well, you should not be more wrong. Pimples are many times the result of a stressful period you have experienced, and the best way to get rid of them is to relax. You do not use the right products for your skin type In case you experienced acne when you were a teenager, then you probably have oily skin and in this case you should check if the products you use for daily care are water-based and oil free. In case they are not then they are the main cause of your pimples, and you should replace them with new ones, as soon as possible. Also, it is advisable to use SPF products because your skin is sensitive to ultraviolet sun rays and you can experience scars. Pollution and dust Pollution does no good for your skin. If you live in a polluted city then you have an increased risk to suffer from acne, as an adult. If you want to prevent it, you should clean your face the moment you get home. Dust can be another factor that leads to acne, because it clogs your pores. If you renovate your house, then you should leave the demolition services to do their job, and ask a friend if you can sleep at them for a period. Food is one of the main causes Many people have allergies at specific foods, and they do not know it. People can be allergic to coffee, chocolate, fried aliments, and even pizza, without knowing. But their face is the proof that something they eat is harmful to their health, and they should have some tests. Sugar is one of the main aliments that causes acne, and it is advisable to lower the daily intake if you experience breakouts.

Cystic acne treatment and diet recommendations

The common idea that you’ll “outgrow” your acne is nothing but a myth. You can still have acne and struggle with it regardless of your age or gender. Males and females, regardless of their age battle cystic acne without implementing a reliable and effective skincare regimen. In some cases, the applied “treatment” consists of damaging DIY solutions, prepared by following various online “miracle concoctions”. As this type of acne is deeply established in sufferer’s skin, these solutions remain ineffective and can damage the skin furthermore by drying it too much, irritating it and over-exfoliating it. Needless to say, if you suffer from cystic acne, don’t rely on lemon juice and banking soda mixtures, as nothing good will ever come out of it. And remember: never pick at your cystic acne. It will only push the infection deeper and will make it more difficult to treat.   Research your options and start the right regimen for your type of skin You must first establish what type of skin you have, in order to search for reliable products. Products that don’t fit your skin’s particular necessities will only damage it and will leave long-term issues: further breakouts, scarring - Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH), Post Inflammatory Erythema (PIE) and atrophic scarring – which will damage your skin’s texture. A good regimen should start with a simple, gentle cleanser and a moisturizer that suits your skin. After a well-documented research, you can start purchasing a cleanser and moisturizer, even if you think that your oily skin doesn’t need one. Moisturizing is an important step of a healthy and effective skincare regimen, regardless of your type of skin. Use those for a longer interval, see if they cause any reactions. After you have established that the two previous types of products work for your skin, find a topical treatment that will help you diminish the inflammation. In most of the cases, prescription strength Vitamin A-derivate creams and topical lotions work best for this type of acne. However, those should be a last resort solution, and OTC medication should be your first option. Invest in a good SPF 50+ lotion, as this type of topical treatment will photosensitize your skin. Besides a suitable skincare regimen, you should check for environmental factors that may lead to this issue. While not many think that their houses can be infested with dangerous chemicals, the experts at this meth testing in NZ laboratory claim that many houses show high degrees of this dangerous irritant. Dietary recommendations for cystic acne As in most of the cases, this type of acne is caused by hormonal imbalances. Diet is more important than many think, and by implementing a low-glycemic diet, a dairy-free diet may help with the symptoms incredibly. Those suffering from cystic acne are recommended a diet based on plenty of fruits and vegetables, low-fat meats, preferably white meat. Alcohol may also lead to cystic acne so limiting it should also help. Keep in mind that most alcoholic beverages have high concentrations of sugar.  Combating cystic acne should be a science-based process and should never involve DIY solutions popularized by various online platforms.
