Taking care of adult acne may involve a treatment, but there are some simple things that can be done to start treating your skin better before springing for that $50 a month skin therapy set. Pick a gentle cleanser and wash your face or affected areas twice a day. Don't scrub, since that can irritate the skin and translate into greater inflammation and more acne. Change your diet in small ways. Although no food independently causes acne, a diet that is high in fats, sugars, and oils overall will likely lead to greater problems. Finally, use a moisturizer. Using a moisturizer helps the skin stay healthy and reduces the likelihood of inflammation and acne. Taking good care of your skin might even resolve your acne problems on its own, but even if it doesn't these tips can only contribute to your overall health.
