Adult acne can be so frustrating. You thought you outgrew your acne in your teenage years, but it’s back! Here are some tips that can make dramatic changes in your skin health.

Clean up your diet: Oily skin can be exacerbated by your diet. Science has shown a strong link between consuming dairy products and high glycemic index foods with an increase in acne breakouts and inflammation. Clean up your diet by avoiding dairy products. Choose low glycemic index whole, non-processed foods. The majority of your diet should be fruits and vegetables.

Evaluate your make-up: Make-up can contain many pore clogging chemicals. One ingredient in particular, Talc, is a major cause for acne breakouts. Choose an all-natural, mineral based makeup like Colorescience to decrease breakouts.

A good daily skin care regimen is key to healthy skin.

Your regimen should include a topical Vitamin A product to increase skin cell turnover to decrease pore clogging comedones (blackheads/whiteheads). Try our Vital A Rejuvenating Serum nightly.

Rejuvenating Swipes not only increase cell turnover using gentle AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) but, also contain an essential oil blend that kills acne bacteria and helps normalize oil production. Use these 3 times per week.

A good SPF daily will help decrease acne scarring. Choose an oil free, zinc oxide based SPF to decrease inflammation and prevent pore clogging. My favorite is Elta MD SPF 41.

With these changes, you should see dramatic improvements in your skin over the next 3 months!

to Your Best Skin,
