What does Dr OZ say about Adult Acne...

Video Summary and comments:

About 20 percent of women struggle with adult acne. That's a large amount! The areas of acne are mostly unpredictable. If you look at the video above, you can understand how acne is actually formed. They recommend popping the pimple with a clean pin instead of using your fingers, as this could damage your skin and cause more outbreaks.

Most common causes of adult acne according to Dr Oz:

  • Your pillow! Your pillow may seem clean, but guess what! It may not be as clean as you think. That dirt can cause acne.He recommends that we wash our pillow cases once per week! But then he carries on to mention the pillow itself. Its best to use a pillow protector, so that you can wash this too!!
  • Touching your face, while your hands are covered with other creams not intended for your face, may cause acne. Who would have guessed. The five things he mentions that are found in hand creams that may cause acne if they come into contact with your face: Coconut oil, algae extract, sodium chloride, Lauryl sulphate and Isocetyl Stearate. I personally agree with all these, except for the coconut oil. I use coconut oil for everything including acne! Coconut oil contains lauric acid which is antibacterial. The only reason why I think they mentioned coconut oil is because they may not be the best quality sources. I always use virgin organic coconut oil.
  • He also mentions that certain medications can cause the sudden occurrence of acne. These may include multivitamins which contain Iodine. Anabolic Steroids are also apparently a trigger for adult acne.

Adult Acne Home Treatment

First, consider some natural, at home adult acne remedies. 

Start with a homemade natural cleanser, obviously to clean out the dirt that is clogging the pores, followed by a homemade natural exfoliant to scrub away the dead skin. End with a homemade natural moisturizer to keep it vibrant and soft. Natural remedies are also more preventative. Use a natural mask for oily skin.

Avoid touching your face. Your hands and fingers are oily, and touching your face will only clog your pores, creating pimples and blackheads. 

If you have pimples, don’t pop them unless completely necessary. Popping pimples literally backfires on you and creates more pimples in the surrounding areas.
