Deal­ing with acne

Hair - - Skin Sense -

Zits and spots are the cause of much dis­tress in your teenage years. How­ever, hav­ing to deal with them as an adult is so much worse. “In older skin, acne oc­curs due to hor­monal im­bal­ance or stress,” ex­plains Dr. Trasi, which is why she sug­gests that while reg­u­lar acne treat­ing meth­ods (ther­a­pies that use sal­i­cyclic acic, ben­zoyl per­ox­ide and retinols) will work, hor­monal im­bal­ances needs more at­ten­tion.

While con­sult­ing a der­ma­tol­o­gist is the safest op­tion, Dr. Agar­wal fur­ther ad­vices that ma­ture women with prob­lem­atic skin must steer clear of cream based prod­ucts that con­tain pe­tro­leum jelly, al­co­hol and min­eral oil. In­stead, opt for oil-free or gel based prod­ucts to pre­vent ag­gra­va­tion. Avoid scrub­bing your face to get rid of the acne or rough skin as it will only cause more ir­ri­ta­tion.
