About 20% of women suffer from adult acne and while you may think it’s a thing of the past, some have it worse when they were in their teens and today. I’ve got surprising reasons for adult acne: They’re easily fixable!
So, we’re all on the same page about what a pimple really is. If you look at the skin of the face, just beneath it under the hair, you’ve got these little follicles where the hair is made. These little oil glands here. They’ll push in there but if he’s blocked off here bacteria getting. There deal of that, and bacteria makes it grow larger. It swells, it crosses pain, and finally on the surface.
So when that happens to you what do you normally do? Actually, you pop it! Little tip: Next time clean it up. Get a needle, clean needle, and just go like this and to sort of Lance. It’s like that okay. Dig into your face. Let the puffs drain out. You just saw how the pus is deep down when you go like this. You’d NASA rate the skin. You’ve beat it all up.
Probably you can’t predict what causes the breakouts like most people, but I have a couple of tips for things that often are responsible for this. Most of you have never heard of it before.
First Reason: Your Pillow
The surprising, first reason for adult acne is your pillow. Think about this: Your beautiful pillowcase looks so clean, doesn’t it? Yes, to see it on your pillow for seven-eight hours a night. Try how many hours it is. Is so fair about and there’s dirt, there’s oil, there’s bacteria from your face, your hands, your hair, and stuff in it from the environment. That it all gets onto your beautiful pillowcase and then that dirt is transferred back into your face clogging up the pore.
How often do you wash your pillow? General recommendations are once a week for pillowcases. Okay, but here’s the double surprise. The pillowcase is only part of the problem. Pull that pillowcase off, if you don’t mind. The other big problem is the actual pillow itself. The pillow inside the case is also a breeding ground for the dead. The pillowcase is pretty thin. Yes, pillowcase stuff goes through there. You sweat on a pillowcase. You’re sweating on the pillow itself. All these junk breeds bacteria and other kinds of contaminants. You actually have to wash your pillows themselves. You can wash the pillowcase once a week and pillows themselves every six months. Just wash them out and it’ll help you a lot.
Yeah, I want everyone in America, because mostly that not washed your pillows in a long time. If it’s been at least six months which are for everybody pretty much. Have you washed your pillows tonight? You’ll be a happy camper tomorrow tonight. The surprising reason is that’s your adult. He’s also a card from while you sleep you know.
Second Reason: Your Hand Cream
At night you ever put your hand to your face. And one of the problems is you put hand cream on your hands and then you rest it on your cheek. You’re actually putting something on your face, but this is supposed to be in your hands. It’s false! If you know face cream, is called hand cream for a reason, if for different kinds of things in there. So, your solution is to find a moisturizer, that’s called non-comedogenic. Comedogenic means causing pimples. So, a non-pimple cream. Okay, anything that promotes acne has to be avoided. I’m gonna give you a list right now. Okay, five things that are commonly found in products. They’re good for your hands and good for your face.
Look for hand cream free of:
- Coconut oil
- Algae extract
- Sodium chloride
- Lauryl sulfate
- Isocetyl sulfate
Third Reason: Your Medications
The next surprising reason you get adult acne has two medications. Some of them are not what you’d expect. So, this and as a side effect, people don’t want to give you acne with their medications. Look for a multivitamin that has iodine in it. Yeah, I want you to take the multivitamin, but if you have iodine in it, that can actually create those kinds of reactions. You can get iodine from having table salt that has iodine in it. So, you don’t have to get it from a vitamin. If you do have that acne, just try getting a multivitamin without iodine being added to it. If your doctors put you on medications frankly, many can cause it but the most common ones are anabolic steroids. Yes, that we use for many reasons. That will really hurt you and you’d be thinking about that.
