Adult Acne Cures
by Max Bellamy
Acne is a skin condition that affects areas of the body containing the largest oil glands, such as the nose, forehead, cheeks, chin, back, and trunk. It is caused by a disorder of the oil glands, called sebaceous glands, and results in clogged pores and outbreaks of lesions also known as pimples.
After much experimentation, people have found that acne can be cured by following a proper regimen which includes simple steps such as washing regularly, avoiding harsh chemicals, following a proper diet and much more. A simple means to keep bacteria away is to wash with benzoyl peroxide cleanser or a mild salicylic acid liquid every morning.
Available at all drugstores under a variety of brand names, glycolic acid gels, creams, and lotions prevent the clogged pores characteristic of acne. Glycolic acid prevents older cells from piling up and blocking pores, thereby reducing the chances of infection. In addition, these products leave skin soft and smooth and may help in decreasing discolorations and fine wrinkles.
Acne solutions can also be purchased through a store or pharmacy and are another very popular way to seek treatment and prevention of acne. There are a number of products and companies that specialize in finding a solution to the problem of acne that haunts many individuals, including adults.
One product that is often advertised is a face wash, which removes dirt from the pores. Using a face wash is one of the most common tips for acne prevention, as soap can dry out the skin, making it susceptible to acne breakouts. Facial masks are often popular forms of acne treatment because they allow the skin to be cleaned and moisturized simultaneously. Many of the masks available in stores today, are easy to apply and can be used in 20 minutes or less. Ointments also provide immediate treatment to breakouts or blemishes that may be forming.
