Coping with Adult Acne

An estimated 25 percent of all adult men and 50 percent of adult women suffer acne at some point in their adult lives. In fact, statistics reported by American Dermatology Association suggest that the median age for patients suffering from acne has been gradually increasing from 20.5 years to approximately 26.5 years. In women, the development of hormonal irregularity in the menstrual cycle is one reason why the condition is more commonly reported among the female population.

Tips To Prevent Adult Acne

✓ Facial cleansing in the morning and night will help to keep the skin oil free.

✓ Choose products that are specifically for sensitive acne-prone skin or for adult acne. This includes your cleanser, toner, treatment, moisturizer, and sunscreen.

✓ Lifestyle modifications, change in dietary habits and combating stress definitely helps.

✓ A diet rich in fiber, salads, whole wheat bread, bran, or multi-grain foods and different kinds of fruits is recommended.

✓ Drink at least eight glasses of water per day.
