If you are like many people growing up, you were told that blemishes only happens when you are a teenager and should disappear after you are not a teenager anymore. You may find yourself extremely frustrated and even angry when you realize that there is such a thing as adult blemishes. If you never had serious skin issues as a teenager but do now in your early adult years, it is natural to feel lied to and betrayed. Luckily you are not alone, as this is common for those in their early adult years. There are also a lot of different options for you to keep your skin clear.
Here are several things you can do to keep your skin blemish-free:
This is the first place to start because it is easy to fix and does not require you to see a doctor. If you are in school you may be touching your face a lot which transfers oils from your hand onto your face. This can cause clogged pores. Start to notice how much your hands go to your face and remove them from your face when you notice it. Washing your face can help because it gets rid of the dirt and oil that builds up throughout the day.
If you are not too keen on running to the dermatologist right away you can always try natural remedies. There are different natural methods that you can try out. There are essential oils, such as Doterra and other companies. You may ask why doterra and wonder what makes them different from other companies? This can be found on a number of their websites.
There are also natural methods such as oil-cleansing. If this makes your blemishes even worse, you will need to stop using it right away. You will want to visit a doctor if your skin does not settle down after stopping treatment.
You may have heard the advice to try different products and this can be true sometimes. Not all products are created equal, so you may need to find a product that is right for you. But if your issues are hormonal it does not matter what over the counter products you use to wash your face.
See a Dermatologist
If you do have constant skin problems, it is time to see a dermatologist. Certain blemishes are caused by the hormones in your body. In some cases it does not matter of how hygienic you are, what you eat or what kind of cleansing products you use. It really is a matter of your body chemistry.
Seeing a dermatologist is the way to go because they can give you topical medicine. They will also give you the option of getting to the source of the problem by giving you medicine that will help the issues permanently. This is an extreme course of action but it is helpful if your skin health issues is greatly affecting your life.
Yes, if you are stressed out you may find yourself struggling with your complexion more than usual. Keeping your stress levels down can help prevent breakouts. This can be achieved by not being overbooked, saying no to certain events and cutting toxic people out of your life. This doesn’t mean you have to have absolutely no stress, you just can’t be stressed out all of the time.
For skin problems, there is not one remedy that works for everyone. Keep trying different things and go see a doctor for some guidance and help. What are some things that started to make a difference for you? Share with a friend who struggles with their skin!
