Top Five Adult Acne Triggers

Top Five Adult Acne Triggers

Posted in Adult Acne by . | Leave a Comment
If you thought the onset of your adult years meant zero acne breakouts, then think again. Adult acne is on the rise. In fact, over half of women age 25 and older suffer from acne breakouts. Adult acne tends to present itself on the lower half of the face--the chin, jawline and jowls. So what can be done about these adult breakouts, which always seem to come at the wrong time? Here, the top five adult acne triggers that you can try and avoid.

Acne Trigger: Dirty makeup brushes
Your blush brush may have hidden bacteria in its bristles that are leading to a rash of pimples on your chin. Take time to wash your brushes after each use. Wet and use shampoo to cleanse the brushes. And never share your brushes with a friend.

Acne Trigger: Stress
Stress leads to the production of cortisol, a hormone that triggers over production of androgen, which is the hormone responsible for causing acne.

Acne Trigger: Hair styling products
Some hairsprays and hair gels may be responsible for clogging pores and can then lead to an acne breakout. Make sure to wash your hair each night before going to sleep, or sleeping with a headband on.

Acne Trigger: Using too many skin care products
You may be in search of the next best thing to get rid of wrinkles or acne, but too much is not a good thing when it comes to skin care products. Using more than just the basics on the skin can cause inflammation and irritation and ultimately lead to an acne breakout.

Acne Trigger: A diet with too many simple carbohydrates
The latest research shows that a low-carb diet can help alleviate acne breakouts. Look for foods, such as leafy greens and whole grains, that are low on the glycemic index.
