How to tackle adult acne

The oil on skin is made up of sebum (natural oil), and sweat, dead skin cells and more.

When your body makes too much of it, and you factor in hormonal imbalances, stress, etc., pores clog and breakouts happen. But don’t let the teenage angst of acne get the best of you. These steps can help topically treat and prevent it.

Step 1: Cleanse

Wet your face with warm water and lather your cleanser all over. Rinse well. The important acne-cleanser ingredients will stay behind to work their magic, but the cleanser’s foaming agents, as well as built-up oil, dead cells and bacteria will be rinsed away.

Step 2: Exfoliate

Exfoliating at least once a week is crucial. Whether physical or chemical, exfoliating sloughs away dead skin cells, removes impurities and helps firm, tighten and give you that radiant glow. Just don’t overdo it because too much exfoliation, or doing it too often, can make acne worse.

Step 3: Tone

Toners help replenish hydration lost during cleansing while also prepping skin to better absorb active ingredients found in serums, oils 
and moisturizers. Toners also help remove excess oil and balance your skin's pH, a vital aspect of preventing breakouts. Added benefit? 
They shrink pores, too.

Step 5: Moisturize

It might seem counterintuitive to moisturize oily skin, but acne-fighting products can leave skin feeling dry. Moisturizing counteracts that. Stick with creams and moisturizers with non-comedogenic ingredients—aka won’t clog pores. Fortunately, there are plenty of products that work wonders for hydrating without causing breakouts.
