Acne is not just a condition experienced by teenagers, many adults suffer from this embarrassing and annoying skin disorder. Although we do not know exactly why acne occurs, we do have a pretty good idea of the different factors which can cause it. For adults these factors include stress, cosmetics, hormone imbalance and even birth control pills. To combat acne, adults have to make some slight changes to their lifestyle. So I have compiled a list of 5 Adult Acne Skin Care Treatments.
1. Stress levels need to be reduced through the day. For some this is very difficult given the job they may be in and the demands on adults these days. A great way to start is to take just 1 hour out of your day and sit back, relax and just get everything off your mind. If you have the time take a bath and listen to some soothing music. Maybe even start doing a little yoga each day. This is a great place to start for adult acne skin care.
2. Cosmetics can also play a big role in the cause of acne. You could try using a little bit less makeup or try water based make up because oil based makeups clog the pores of your skin which causes breakouts. If you can, try not to use any makeup.
3. Hormonal Imbalance is one of the main factors of acne, it can be caused by stress, menstruation and pregnancy. Most of these things can’t really be altered. The best way to fight this is by having a good healthy diet, drinking lots of water and keeping your skin clean with a gentle cleanser.
4. Drinking heaps of water. Drinking 2-3 litres of water a day will help cleanse your system of unwanted toxins and other nasties. Water will also hydrate your skin, keeping it nice and healthy.
With these 4 adult acne skin care treatments you should be able to start seeing a positive change in your skins appearance within a short amount of time.
