Common Issues ~ Adult Acne ~ Lindsey A. Jones

As if being an adult wasn’t hard enough, let’s bring on the soul crippling adult acne. 





Did you know that 20% of all adults have acne problems of some form.  

Factors contributing to Adult Acne

Genetics

Stress

Dirty hands

Medication side effects

Hot weather

Menstruation and pregnancy



How to deal with it





STOP touching your face and keep your phone clean, the grease and dirt transfers to your pores and grinds right in.  




DO NOT pop the zits, hard as it may seem.   You can make it worse by introducing bacteria to the affected area from under your nails.  



WASH your face with simple soap and water, avoid products with alcohol, it will just dry you out.  



Medication can be prescribed in extreme cases, talk to a dermatologist.

Some home remedies

Tea Tree Oil ~ anti-fungal
Baking soda ~ cleanser and toner
Honey ~ reduces the appearance of scars


Keep those beautiful faces forward
