Acne Skin Care Products
Is your adult acne getting old?
If you are an adult living with acne, you probably started
getting sick of it...about twenty years ago. Acne is for teenagers, right? Unfortunately,
acne can continue long after puberty. Some deal with acne well into their adult
years and even into middle age. Adult acne can be very frustrating. Adult acne can
make it difficult to imagine ever having clear skin. For the most part, adult acne
is a problem for young adults and women who are pregnant, otherwise known as gestational
acne. But for some adults, acne continues for years, well into midlife, and they
don't know why.
For the most part, adult acne is caused by the same things
as teenage acne. Hormone imbalance plays a tremendous role in the presence of acne.
As a teenager, your hormones rage as you go through puberty. As a young adult, your
hormones may still be in the process of stabilizing. However, if you're well
into your thirties or forties, your hormone levels should have reached normal levels
long ago. If you are experiencing adult acne, having your hormone levels checked
by your doctor is a great first step to discovering the root of the problem.
Even though adult acne is not caused by poor hygiene,
there are some things you might be doing unconsciously that are preventing you from
enjoying clear skin. If you have the habit of touching your skin, this could be
contributing to your adult acne. Your hands and fingernails constantly carry bacteria
that cause acne. Or, make sure that the products you are using to wash your face,
make up, shampoo and conditioner, or other personal care products do not contain
ingredients that are irritating your skin. Also, if you have been struggling with
adult acne for many years, you’ve probably developed very good habits for keeping
your face clean. If so, you might actually be washing your face too often or using
products that are too drying and harsh. Washing your face once or twice daily with
a mild water-based cleanser, like the cleanser in the
Adult Anti-Blemish Kit for adult acne, should do the trick.
Consulting your doctor about your adult acne is a great
way to combat your condition. Your dermatologist will be able to discern what kind
of acne you have and the best way to treat it. Certain kinds of adult acne may respond
well to an oral antibiotic or a prescription topical formula. But there are lots
of great acne skin
care products that are available without a
doctor's prescription. With the right ingredients, treating your adult acne
at home with strong products may be the answer. Products like
Kamins Acne Starter Kit and
Acne Treatment Kit that both contain benzoyl
peroxide or salicylic acid are the most effective in treating adult acne. There
are lots of acne
skin care products out there, but if they
don't contain a key ingredient like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, you
might be wasting your money and your time.
Even if you've been fighting adult acne for several
decades, don't give up. You can beat adult acne. Talk to your doctor, examine
your habits, and make sure you're using the right
skin care products
. You will be on your way to saying goodbye to adult acne.
