Causes of Adult Acne and How to Treat it The Right Way

Causes of Adult Acne and How to Treat it The Right Way. Adults suffering with acne can be worse than teens since must adults no longer have this problem. However there is a way to deal with it and treating it. Many mature people remember the days when blemishes and pimples were significant sources of anxiety. One of the benefits of getting older is losing the worry of waking up with a new pimple or waking up with a cluster of them. Acne is usually associated with adolescence. Puberty is a time of hormonal disarray and epidermal awakenings. However, many adults are faced with the adolescent curse. In order for mature individuals to treat breakouts, it is necessary to explore the causes of adult acne.

There are a few things to consider when breakouts are no longer part of a rite of passage. The causes of adult acne do not necessarily revolve around a person’s facial cleaning regimen. Just because you cleanse your face does not mean that you will be blemish-free. The breakouts are usually a message that causes for adult acne are working internally. You internal workings are literally worn on your face.

As mature people, our hormones are supposed to be in check but hormonal imbalances are one of the major causes of adult acne. Usually the blemishes appear in women during pregnancy or during a monthly cycle. Although the pimples typically clear up without treatment, it is a good idea to consult with your doctor about checking for hormonal imbalances that may be a cause for adult acne.

One way to tell if hormones are at play is to consider other signs of an imbalance. For example, hormones may factor in as causes for adult acne if they appear along with a severe case of premenstrual syndrome. There is no such thing as a case of PMS that is not severe, at least according to my husband. You may be able to address both the PMS problems and the blemish problems at once. This could lead to a very happy, pimple-free home.

Men also show signs that there is a chemical imbalance that needs to be considered in the search for the causes of adult acne. Hair loss is tell-tale sign that significant changes are occurring in a man’s system. Women are not exempt from the worries of hair loss, either. If you are having both hair loss and breakouts, you may want to consult with a doctor who can tell you if there is a connection.

Other things that may factor in to a less than perfect complexion include a proper diet and this includes water intake. Some argue that diet is not directly connected to breakouts, but I am convinced that it is one of the causes of adult acne. My face breaks out if I eat junk food and if I do not drink enough water. This usually occurs over a course of a few days and in combination. The latter is more significant as one of the causes of adult acne because I have gotten away with snacking on junk food without breakouts if I drank enough water.

Keeping track of your mood and your diet can help you discover the causes of adult acne. Sometimes we need to listen to our bodies.  It may take a little time and effort, but you may be surprised that the causes of adult acne are really manageable.

How to Get Vanessa Hudgens Natural Makeup Look

How to Get Vanessa Hudgens Natural Makeup Look. Vanessa Hudgens always has flawless makeup and most of the time she has a natural glowing makeup look that any girl would want. Mac offers some great products to give you a natural look and thanks to temptalia for showing us how you can recreate her look using mac products.

Face: Use a liquid luminizer like MAC Strobe Cream and mix with your moisturizer or foundation. If you use a liquid foundation, I’d definitely recommend mixing it with the foundation. If you’re more of a powder girl, opt to mix it with your moisturizer prior to foundation application. This will help give you that all over glow without looking shimmery! Conceal any necessary areas like undereyes with your favorite concealer, and then apply your foundation. Lightly brush cheeks with a light sweep of bronzer, just on the apples, to add a touch of glow and bronzy color. If you feel too fair for bronzer, try a light dusting of a pastel pink, just so it looks like a natural flush. Set face with a loose, transparent powder. Mist with a spritz of water (or you can use a fixing/setting spray) to make sure there’s no powdery finish.

Lips: Take a sheer, baby pink gloss (I like NARS’ Turkish Delight), and apply to lips for an effortless look. For a longer wearing lip, first apply a layer of soft pink lipstick (I like MAC Hue or Plink!), then top with the milky pink gloss. You can choose your pink to be cool or warm toned, depending on your skin tone, to make it look more natural.

Eyes: Use a mascara that separates and adds length, to give you longer, wispy-looking lashes. Try black-brown or soft black for a less intense look than traditional ultra black mascaras. Lightly lay down a wash of a just-browner-than-your-skintone brown shadow on the lid. Tightline with a black kohl, and gently line the lower waterline with a brown liner.
