Adult Acne vs Teen Acne

In most skin care reviewsthat you may have read, many women today experience acne breakouts on their 20s. However, zits that pop out of your face aren’t the same as the ones that did during your teens. Before, you would notice pimples breaking out in your T-zone area, but when your on your 20s, it will most likely show up somewhere from the chin up to the sides of your jaw. These zits are caused by estrogen and progesterone and most likely appears pinkish.

The hair products that you use is one cause of adult acne. See, if your hair products settle on your forehead skin, it can clog your pores since most of it contains heavy ingredients. As a result, these clogged pores can result to acne breakout.

How to fight ”Adult acnes”?

A rule of thumb in face care: Always wash your face at night, preferably before going to bed. This rule follows even if you hardly wear make up. Make-up isn’t the only thing why you’re washing your face at the end of the day anyways—you have to cleanse your face because your skin’s pores get clogged with oil, air pollution and skin bumps during the day.

When washing your face, it is best to use a facial cleanser that contains salicylic acid. Then apply serums or creams that has benzoyl peroxide on areas where zits often pops out. These two ingredients are most often prescribed by dermatologists separately, depending on your skin condition. Though studies show that nowadays, it’s best to use both, because the salicylic acid is responsible for unclogging the pores, and the benzoyl peroxide treats acne breakouts thus penetrating better.
