Having adult acne is not fun! As a teenager, everyone had a few pimples. But once you left high school, acne was just not something you should have to deal with. With real life jobs and relationships on the line, it seems unfair to have to worry about acne too! Luckily there are a few skin care tricks that can make this problem much more manageable.
Start with a Cleanse
First, make sure you have a great cleanser. The best cleansers for acne prone skin clean without stripping the skin of natural nutrients and do not add oil. Cleansers with natural ingredients such as aloe, white tea and goji berry tend to give great results. It is important to avoid cleansers with perfume because these tend to include alcohol, which can be very drying.
Follow with a Peel
After cleansing, a light peel can go a long way to rid your skin of acne. This does not mean you have to go into a doctor’s office for a professional scrub down. There are many quality peels you can buy at any makeup or skin care store that will do just fine. These peels are usually the consistency of a serum and work by chemically exfoliating away the dead skin cells that are clogging your pores. Most peels contain lactic acid, which is great for ridding acne-prone skin of excess oil and dirt.
Finish with a Moisturizer
Last but not least, coat your skin with a light serum or moisturizer. You won’t want anything with added oils, as this will clog the pores you just scrubbed clean. Choose a serum or moisturizer with hyaluronic acid; this will work to keep fighting breakouts all day.
We all have days where our skin is not cooperating. However, taking the proper steps to clean and condition your skin will pay off and leave you with the radiant skin you have been looking for.
