Acne and braces go hand in hand in your mind when you think of junior high and high school. Luckily, those braces come off, you graduate high school, and most of the time your acne goes away. However, if you are an adult who is suffering from acne, you don’t have to deal with it for long. Read on to learn more about the best skincare for adult acne.

  • Acne Cleanser

You can find an acne cleanser at virtually any drugstore or grocery store. Acne cleansers with ingredients like salicylic acid help to rid your skin of acne causing oil and dirt that build up on your skin throughout the day. Additionally, the salicylic acid also works to treat any acne that you currently have on your face— leaving you with a more blemish free looking complexion.

  • Spot Cream

An acne spot cream is another lifesaver when it comes to treating adult acne. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Barry Goldman and ask if he can prescribe you with a spot cream. As you notice a blemish coming on, simply apply a little bit of spot cream directly onto the blemished— this will help to dry it up and prevent it from getting any bigger. However, because spot creams, especially prescription ones, do contain a high amount of drying agents like salicylic acid, you may notice your skin starting to dry out. If this is the case, simply apply a thick cream or lotion over the top in order to balance it out.

  • Chemical Peels

Another great way to help get rid of current acne and acne scars is through getting a chemical peel every month. By using hyaluronic acids in order to get rid of the top few layers of your skin, chemical peels encourage the production of new skin and can help to get rid of the acne and oil that your skin may be suffering from.

Dealing with adult acne doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, by following the above three skincare tips, you can help to target your acne and get back to feeling like your true self once again. To learn more about adult acne, contact Dr. Barry Goldman today!
