Attributable to various factors, adult acne differs from juvenile acne in that it only affects the lower half of the face. Here are a few product and treatment suggestions to help prevent, heal and conceal unsightly pimples.
Pimples around the mouth or along your jawline or chin between the ages of 20 and 40 are considered adult acne. This pesky problem can be due to various factors like hormonal imbalances related to your menstrual cycle or even contraceptive use. Over-oily skin with clogged pores, poor diet, using cosmetics that are expired or inappropriate for your skin type, stress, tobacco use and pollution also don’t help you maintain a clear, clean complexion. Caused by sebaceous gland secretions, pimples can, however, be controlled before they appear—if you adopt a rigorously healthy lifestyle and choose skincare products specifically formulated for acne-prone skin. It’s also important to use only non-oily, noncomedogenic makeup. Also, avoid squeezing pimples as this may cause inflammation and even scarring. Another aggravating factor to watch out for is sunlight. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and a quality sunblock with a high SPF (50-60) to prevent pimples from happening.
