How to deal with adult acne

I never thought that acne would be something I would have to worry about as an adult, but sure enough it is! And, the worst thing is, it seems to pop up when I’d least like it to. The night before a big party, job interview, date…! Sound familiar!? If you’re feeling like me and would like to kick acne to the curb once and for all, then this blog, packed full to the brim of top tips on how to deal with adult acne, is just the ticket.

Breakouts relating to food allergies

Do you notice that your skin flares up after eating certain foods? Well, that’s because some breakouts may be the result of food allergies. What’s the solution I hear you ask! Start to keep a food journal and document what you eat and the condition of your skin. If you think certain kind of foods are triggering your acne, try and cut them out for two weeks and if your condition improves, the rest speaks for itself! Might sound like a bit of hassle but imagine how happy you will be when you have acne free skin!

Dirty hands

Think of how much we put our hands through every day, but then also think of what effect that can have on our face if we keep touching it throughout the day! Your hands touch everything, and pull in dirt and oil. When you touch your face you are putting that dirt and oil on your skin and causing it to get into your pores clogging them up. And the result? Spots! So keep your hands off your face and you should notice a great improvement.

You need more water

Beauty experts don’t just advise drinking 8 glasses of water a day as a joke – they mean it. And if you aren’t drinking at least 8 full glasses of water each day, it is time to start. Water helps keep the body and skin hydrated and also plumps out any existing acne scars so they appear less visible. We’ve posted a blog, all about the benefits of drinking more water. Worth a look if you’re still not convinced!

Sensitive skin

Your skin may be sensitive to some of the ingredients in your make up and skin care products. If you have noticed a difference in your skin since adding a new product to your routine, the new product maybe the cause of your breakouts and you need to stop using it.
