Adult acne is a cruel joke played by nature. We always think of teenagers being the ones to deal with acne and breakouts. Unfortunately, many people face adult acne problems. So, to help, we have put together some tips for dealing with acne as an adult.
Cigarette smoking is highly linked to causing adult acne in women. If you smoke and walk around with a broken out face, it may be time to consider quitting. Quitting smoking can not only improve your skin it will also improve your health and odds against cancer.
Some breakouts are the result of food allergies. If you think this may be the case for you, keep a food journal. Document what you eat and the condition of your skin. Try going a couple of weeks without foods you think maybe a trigger to your acne and look for improvements.
Your skin may be sensitive to some of the ingredients in your makeup and skincare products. If you have added something new to your routine and noticed a difference in your skin, the new product may be the cause of your breakouts.
Keep your hands off of your face. 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.
Tea tree oil
Dabbing a small amount onto blemishes you can help breakdown the bacteria that causes breakouts and speed up the healing process without removing the skin’s natural moisture.

Surveys suggest that 95% of adolescents and adults suffer with acne scarring problems, so you should know that you’re not alone in your quest to find a cure.
Scarring caused by acne looks very different from any other scars – it’s the deficit of collagen in the specific region that gives rise to acne scarring. After the acne has subsided, the affected skin region needs collagen to heal and if the skin underlying the subsided acne doesn’t have it, then it tends to get scarred during the healing process thereby giving rise to an ice pick scar.
