Many people associate acne with tweens and teenagers, but the fact is that many adults also suffer from acne. If you feel like you should have outgrown acne long ago, but are still struggling to manage it, try following some of these tips. You will be on your way to clearer, more grown up skin in no time. Try not to cover up blemishes or acne with too much toner or foundation. Too much product on your face will actually clog pores, potentially, making the blemish worse. Covering the area with make-up, could dry out the area causing an infection and in some cases, scarring. If you are an acne sufferer, try not to wash your face excessively. Any more than three times daily, and you run the risk of making the problem worse. Wash your face in warm water, using a mild soap. Gently pat your skin dry. This will prevent the acne-causing bacteria from spreading, lessening future breakouts. Try using witch hazel on your acne. Witch hazel is great at drawing out infection. It works well on acne as well. Just pour a little on a cotton ball and dab any area that is afflicted with acne. Feel free to repeat the process once a day or so. If you have acne-prone skin, chose a moisturizer labeled oil-free, non-acnegenic or noncomedogenic. This type of moisturizer is less lightly to clog pores and cause whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and cysts. In addition, lotions or gels tend to be lighter, so stay away from creams unless you have very dry skin and want a heavy moisturizing product. If your skin is very sensitive or acne-prone, you may want to use hard-pressed Q-tips or cotton swabs to apply facial creams or medication. This prevents bacterial contamination from your fingers, and the firmly packed cotton at each end of the swab will not leave a cottony residue on your face. If you are in your teens, you must understand that acne is a natural bodily response to your hormonal changes. If you do not understand this, you will stress over your looks, which can cause your face to breakout even worse. If you are young, you have to be patient with your skin and take good care of it. As you can see, there are many methods for ridding your skin of embarrassing acne. Just because you're an adult and still have acne doesn't mean that you're destined to have it forever. Try any or all of the tips mentioned in this article to get the clear, fresh-faced look you've been dreaming of.
