Sebum, an oily substance secreted by our sebaceous glands is on one of the causes of adult acne. The sebum produced clogs pores, which attract bacteria and in turn pores become irritated and swollen. Additionally, many cases of adult acne are caused by hormonal imbalances. Overproduction of androgens, or male hormones, can make adult acne appear. But imbalances of the female hormones (estrogen) can also cause eruptions. Lastly, some medications and cosmetic ingredients can contribute to adult acne.
There are a few things to ensure a clearer complexion. First, make sure you wash your face properly. This may sound like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many of us don’t know how to do this simple task the way it should be. Cleanse your face twice daily, morning and night. Do not scrub, or use a washcloth, hands are best. A washcloth can irritate your already compromised skin, plus it can be a conductor of bacteria, aggravating the acne. Wash for 1 to 2 minutes, with warm, not hot (which can be drying) water. Keep your face clean during the day by not touching it with your hands.
Next, use a product, like the Clear Cell line, that are specifically formulated to treat, prevent, and nourish acneic skins. The line is designed to fight acne, reduce inflammation, eliminate excess oil, and purify. It includes:
