First what causes them.? Well hormones can play a big role,as you know.Im sure you notice around that time of month,a few pop up here and there ,usually on the chin! Or any big body change like having a baby or having a really stressful day.
Adult acne is caused by sebum, an oily substance produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands. Sebum clogs pores, which attract bacteria and become inflamed.
There seems to be various products out on the market now that is suppose to treat acne.I find the products that work best contain Benzoyl Peroxide or Salicylic Acid .For something more natural tea tree also helps.They are anti-bacterial and unclog pores and prevent new pimples from forming.Or if yours is really bad you can go to the doctors for antibiotics or if its super super bad there is Accutane which shrinks the oil glands from inside,but this is a last resort as it is quite harsh.
But i want to tell you about products you can buy at the store that work well here are some
This product contains 10% of Benzoyl Peroxide, so be warned, this is really strong stuff more for moderate acne and as a spot treament retails less than $7.00 normally and lasts quite awhile
For a more natural treament i really liked this one and it worked well for me
