Tips to beat acne in adulthood

Man in front of the mirror

Acne is usually associated only with adolescence, but many grown men continue to fight against grain in the back and other parts of the body in their twenties, thirties and even after 40 years. It is estimated that they represent about 25%.

There are three causes of acne: overactive sebaceous glands, plugged hair follicles (dead cells, sebum), and the presence of bacteria in the follicle itself. It is logical, therefore, what the specialists say that to cure acne you have to learn to better manage the skin's natural sebum production.

When you have acne, there is a temptation to wash your face with the harshest soap on the market, so that it helps us to remove all the sebum. However, this will only cause the skin to start producing more sebum to make up for the loss. Instead, bet on a product with a gentle formula that does not irritate your skin and use it twice a day to wash your face.

Not to mention the scars that can be left if the pimple is of a considerable size. So try to keep your fingers away from your face and let the process take its course.

Spot treatments can be very effective if they are of quality and used correctly. Make sure they contain benzoyl peroxide, a miracle ingredient when it comes to keeping pimples under control. Other ingredients to consider are salicylic acid and tea tree oil, which can be purchased individually (you can see it on these lines). And remember: don't assume that you won't be able to do without the product in question. The key is to use less and less over the course of at least two weeks until you completely remove it from your grooming routine.
