Combating Adult Acne

I am sure most of you who suffer from Adult Acne probably cringed when you read that title. For Day 2 of "Haute People Beauty Week" we will be going deep into the pores of Adult Acne!

According to WebMD, there are many reasons you get Adult Acne which could be caused by Stress, change in your hormone levels and of course poor diet choices. I find myself breaking out during the 28 mark (yes, yes I'm that old ) before my period but the bumps would go down after and it would leave a few marks. I guess this is a form of Acne since it happens around the time of my period ( change in hormone level ) If you suffer from Adult Acne here a few ways you can either control or get rid of it:

  • Change your diet: Consume more foods that are rich in protein and calcium instead of fatty oily foods that may clog your pores.
  • Wash your face more than twice per day: It is recommended to wash your face twice daily; in the morning to prep your face for the day and in the evening to wash away all impurities and to allow your skin cells to repair. Be sure to follow with a moisturizer
  • Use an intensive Acne Treatment: There are several over the counter Acne Medications you can get at most Pharmacies. Depending on the severity of your Acne, you can visit a Dermatologist for brands like Accutane which are super intensive. I've discovered an over the Counter solution called Acnevir  which is an Adult Acne Redness Relief Product with Aloe.

Does Acnevir work?

Yes and Not .. to an extent. It is being branded as a 3 in 1 Medicated Gel that is suppose to clear acne pimples, reduces redness & prevent future breakouts. I really like that it is gentle on the skin, unlike most Acne medications that bleach the skin which I hate! It contains No Benzoyl Peroxide, Alcohol-Free, Non-Oily, Non-Comedogenic, Non-Bleaching, and Non-staining. I found that it was great as a spot treatment as the size of a pimple went down in a few hours then completely away within the next day. It did reduce the redness but it leaves the skin very dry which I would recommend following with a moisturizer or drinking more water.

I would recommend it to a friend who has a few hormonal breakouts but not full on Adult Acne

  1. Aside from drinking a heck of a lot of water and taking something like Accutaine, it's always worth getting your hands on a tube of Tretinoin, by Obagi. I work for an aesthetic nurse and a dermatologist and combined with AHA treatment, Tretinoin even at 0.025% will help resurface the skin. Then, use a 10% benzoyl peroxide as a topical spot treatment on any breakouts.

  2. I didn't have acne for years until I went back on the birth control pill and now I am on medication from the doctor to control it. HATE dealing with acne..I feel like a kid!

  3. I need this! I have the skin of a teenager sometimes!

  4. thank goodness I never had Acne trouble. Son however is a big suffer of it. must check into this.

  5. I have 2 friends that have been complaining about adult acne, I am sending them this!

  6. I will look out for this product. I started having acne in my 40's uggh.

  7. I have been lucky I have not had this since last pregnancy. Will shar with a friend.

  8. Thanks for the clarification, it sounds effective! It sounds like a great product for those random spots.

  9. I have had acne from time to time as an adult. I wished I would have known about this sooner. It would have saved m a lot of grief.

  10. I still have Acne! I HATE IT! This looks like a great product.

  11. It's awful that adults still have to deal with acne. I am glad there is something to help with it, though.

  12. I also have hormonal acne- right before my period! If it works I could stand a little dryness!

  13. You know the last few months my acne has been awful and I am 41! I would think I would have been past all that but apparently not! This sounds like a great product to try!

  14. I'm pretty lucky with the acne situation. I've steered clear of breakouts with the exception of a pimple here or there (usually during the dreaded week of my period). But, my stepson who is almost 18 is really fighting the battle. I'm going to mention Acnevir to him!

  15. So glad I never had Acne trouble. My son however is already showing signs of it. I will check into this!

  16. I have had adult acne problems for years. I find the the less simple carbs (bread, pasta, and sugar) that i eat the better it is. However, it is nice to have something to help with sudden outbreaks, though.

  17. I definitely need to pay more attention to my diet. Thank you for the tips

  18. I've never heard of this before. Looks like a good product to try for those battling acne.

  19. I've been breaking out a bit lately. Ugh. It's so frustrating!
