Do you ever wake up in the morning thinking that you are old enough to not experience acne!? Think again. Unfortunately, acne can be found at any age for a variety of reasons. It is the hormonal changes that occur at all ages that cause these acne outbursts. There are several things that can be done at home to help solve acne problems.
1. Don't over wash! Washing with soap doesn't help acne. It can irritate the skin and make it worse.
2. Avoid refined sugar in your diet. Refined sugar causes insulin peaks that stimulate oil production in the skin and aggravates acne.
3. Don't overuse cosmetics. Many cosmetics have ingredients that make acne worse. As a general rule, wet makeup followed by pressed powders is the worst combination. It is better to use loose powders. Also, look for non-comedogenic cosmetics. These tend not to have ingredients that make acne worse.
