As a teenager having acne is just part of growing up. Yes it makes us look funny and can be really embarrassing, but we get through it because we know that everybody else is dealing with it too. Puberty is supposed to be the worst of our acne years; by adulthood we’re supposed to be mostly finished with it. This is why so many of us are so embarrassed by the occasional breakout or zit. Waking up to find some spots or bumps sends us right back into our teenage angst. What makes adult breakouts worse is how painful they can be. No matter what number your age starts with, use these hints to help you deal with your next breakout.
Make sure your hair stays away from your face.
Throughout the day your scalp produces oil which gets into your hair and then gets transferred to your face if you don’t take steps to keep this from happening. Bangs are especially troublesome oil spreaders for people with acne problems so, if you want to keep your pores oil free, either grow your bangs out or keep them pulled back. We understand the appeal of long hair and bangs, but it is better to keep your hair off of your face. Braids, ponytails and headbands are the easiest ways to keep hair away from your face. Your face will thank you! Maybe you need a dermatologist’s advice. Some adults are cursed with acne that does not respond to “regular” cleansers and treatments. For people who have tried all of the over the counter facial cleansers and acne fighters and who still suffer from extensive acne, a professional’s advice is often needed. Your dermatologist will be able to help you figure out a skin care routine that works and might end up giving you a prescription for extra strength cleansers and acne fighting products. Your doctor might even find that something else (besides simple clogged pores) is causing your acne flare ups. Acne is not always caused by clogged pores–sometimes breakouts are the result of your genes or other health problems you might be facing. Your dermatologist or physician will know how best to fight your acne and breakouts if they are being caused by something besides dirt and bacteria in your pores.
Lower your stress level! For a lot of us, pimples and other forms of acne are a sure sign that we are too stressed out. It is important to take some time for yourself every day to lower your stress. Have someone teach you some techniques for relaxation that you can use to keep your stress in check. If you lead a fast paced lifestyle consider slowing it down a little bit. When you let yourself relax you should find that your acne gets better (as does your overall outlook on life)!
Treat your acne in whatever way works best for you. You might be able to use a simple mask made of natural ingredients while someone else might need something so strong they need a prescription from their doctor to use it. There are even people who are able to treat their acne with only a balanced diet and regular exercise. It will take some trials and failures before you find success with your acne treatments. Over time you will learn what works with your skin and what does not. Don’t give up and soon you will have clean and clear skin!
