Adult acne: 6 solutions to get rid of

Clean your skin deeply:

We can not repeat it enough: this step is ESSENTIAL in the fight against pimples. In order to eliminate impurities, dirt and excess sebum accumulated on the surface of the skin during the night or day, we must absolutely wash our face twice a day (morning and evening).

Otherwise, our pores may become clogged, which will stimulate acne. To do this, it is cleaned daily with warm water, taking care to use a mild cleanser, without perfume and adapted to our skin type.

Avoid at all costs conventional soaps that, on the contrary, promote acne: they dry the face by eliminating the natural oil secreted by our skin, which reacts by an overproduction of sebum which, in turn, promotes the acne. Another routine to adopt: once or twice a week,

Hydrate Skin:

Experts say it again and again: the hydration of acne skin remains essential because a dehydrated skin increases its production of sebum, which aggravates acne.

Therefore, opt for a non-comedogenic moisturizing cream for oily skin. And why not maximize the hydration of our skin by drinking a good amount of water daily? Consuming water has several benefits, including helping to keep the skin well hydrated and healthy.

Pay attention to diet:

Beyond the hygiene and good reflexes beauty, we must also focus on the contents of our pantry and fridge. Although this is not yet fully scientifically proven, many experts agree that diet influences the condition of the skin.

To do this, limit our consumption of:

  • synthetic trans fatty acids found in many prepared foods or ready meals
  • sugar
  • rice
  • White bread
  • gluten
  • dairy products
  • beer

And we opt instead for:

  • cereals and whole flours
  • fatty acids (omega-3 and 6)
  • barley, bulgur, and quinoa
  • green leafy vegetables
  • sweet potatoes
  • legumes (chickpeas, lentils, etc.)
  • almond or soy milk
  • fatty fish (tuna, salmon)
  • high fiber foods

Tip: If the idea of ​​deleting everything makes you mad, you can choose to keep a diary of our diet and take a look at it when buttons appear. It will be easier to identify foods that promote the appearance of acne.

Avoid fiddling with the face:

We know that touching our buttons or putting dirty hands in the face is not a good idea. The reason is simple: it is by touching our face that we transmit bacteria favoring the development of imperfections.

Yes, some bacteria feed on our sebum and proliferate in this environment, which causes inflammation. In summary, it is the bacterial contamination that causes a simple comedo to turn into XXL button, red and painful.

Avoid prolonged exposure to  the Sun:

The sun produces two opposite effects on acne skin. Initially, it dries the skin. This drying effect, paired with tanning, makes one perceive an improvement in the quality of the skin when it is tanned. Unfortunately, this false impression is short-lived, since the sun also causes a thickening of the superficial layer of the skin.

The pores are found again blocked, causing an accumulation of sebum and ... the appearance of new buttons! People suffering from acne, therefore, have the advantage of limiting their exposure to the sun and using sunscreen regularly.

Change Foundation:

When a pimple appears, we have only one desire: to camouflage it. Be careful, because if you use a product that is not suited to your skin type, you risk making the situation worse. Why? Because as acne skin is fragile, irritated and reactive skin, it could react to certain foundation formulas.

Fortunately, many non-comedogenic makeup products exist for this type of skin and can even be worn daily. Provided we take the time to clean up his face in the evening before going to bed!
