Acne At Every Age

Acne At Every Age

For some people, acne seems to be inevitable at every age while others only experience it at certain times in their lives. Whether it is a lifelong struggle or an occasional annoyance, acne should be treated differently as your skin ages. Here is what you need to know about acne at each stage of your life. 

Teen acne  

During the teen years, hormone changes are the main causes of acne. When puberty occurs, there is a change in hormone levels which causes over active sebaceous or oil glands. This is why oily skin is often associated with acne during the teen years. When the excess oil blocks pores and bacteria develops, blemishes begin to appear. 

Benzoyl peroxide is one of the most effective ingredients for teen acne because it reduces bacteria on the skin surface. A complete kit such as Obagi CLENZIderm MD System is the best choice for teens who are struggling with acne. The three products in this set eliminate bacteria, remove excess oil and unclog pores to reduce the appearance of breakouts. 

Acne in your 20s and 30s  

While your hormones have leveled out during your 20s and 30s, there are still fluctuations, especially for women, that can cause breakouts. The best way to treat acne during these years is with ingredients such as salicylic and glycolic acid. LovelySkin LUXE Clarifying Gel Cleanser contains both of these ingredients to keep pores clear and combat occasional breakouts. You can also treat areas of concern with LovelySkin Acne Care Gel which exfoliates using amino fruit acids. 

Acne in your 40s and 50s  

As we age, our cell turnover rate slows which leads to a buildup of cells on the complexion. This buildup leads to clogged pores which cause blackheads, whiteheads and blemishes. Use a daily cleanser such as LovelySkin LUXE Gentle Cream Cleanser which removes all traces of dirt, oil, makeup and debris to keep the complexion clear.

After you cleanse, use a daily exfoliating treatments such as LovelySkin Exfoliating Gel Mild 11%. Amino fruit acids improve cell turnover and unclog pores to prevent the appearance of blemishes.
