Best Adult Acne Treatment

Stop Adult Acne in Its Tracks

If you’re still struggling with acne after your hormonal teen year, it’s time to change your beauty regimen. Adult acne is different than your high school breakouts, with different causes and treatments.

While teen acne comes from overproduction in sebum oil triggered by hormonal spikes, adult acne is more likely caused by stress or hormonal fluctuation. Adult acne is also frequently paired with sensitivity and dehydration, making treatment more challenging.

Put away the Clearasil, because it’s only drying your skin out and making your acne worse. The best adult acne treatment comes from Dr. Perricone. Don’t give up hope. Dr Perricone applies his three-tier philosophy to acne treatment as well.

Diet

FishWith acne, what you avoid eating is just as important as what you do eat.

It’s important to avoid sugar and yeast, while including high quality proteins and good fats- like Omega 3.

Don’t forget plenty of spring water! Dr. Perricone recommends plenty of omega rich fish like salmon throughout the day, while avoiding coffee, alcohol, white flour, milk and soy.

 

Supplements

A healthy diet is a great start, but every diet could use a boost from Dr Perricone’s comprehensive vitamin supplements. The Skin Clear Supplements is specially formulated to increase skin’s clarity, while toning and improving skin’s texture.
