A common misconception is that acne only affects adolescents. As many of my followers know, this is not true. I hear it over and over again~ "I never had acne as a teenager but now, as an adult, I am experiencing acne." This is so common. There are various factors that can contribute to adult acne including hormones, diet and stress.
Adopting a simple skincare regime that nourishes and hydrates your skin can help. Creating a simple routine which includes cleansing, hydrating and gently exfoliating skin regularly will increase skin cell renewal rate.
For some people, skin cells can accumulate and contribute to clogged pores causing acne breakouts. Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells to reveal new, younger cells underneath, helping to remove impurities and debris that may be clogging skin cells. It is important not to over-exfoliate skin, which may aggravate and inflame the skin, leading to further acne breakouts. Exfoliating with a mask once per week to begin can be very beneficial.
Some people find that incorporating regular, gentle exfoliation (one to two times per week, at most), helps prevent clogged pores, keeps skin looking renewed and fresh and keeps acne breakouts at bay.
Oils are often given a bad reputation, specifically when tied to oily or acne-prone skin types. In reality, the right oils can balance and correct problem skin, reducing acne breakouts. Due to increased sebum production, acne-prone skin can benefit from lightweight skincare products such as light moisturizers or facial oils.
