Acne was a bummer when you’re going through high school, but at least you weren’t the only one walking the halls with zits. Fast forward to a few decades later and the suckers still haven’t gone away! Only now you are the only one at the office with acne. Luckily, The Frisky’s got your back… and face, and neck. Chow Down:
Starches like bread, pasta and fried rice are causes for adult acne. Eating healthier and limiting these items within your diet will help control your adult acne.
If you are a female, hormones play a major role in your acne. If you are taking synthetic hormones, consult with your doctor and tell him/her your concerns. Another option is to add more calcium and fiber into your diet.
Drink Less Alcohol and More Water:
There is a direct correlation between drinking alcohol and adult acne. Lessen the amount of alcohol you down and try drinking more water. Healthy skin means less acne and healthy skin comes with drinking more water.
Is it PMS?:
Acne is a torturous side effect of PMS. This goes hand-in-hand with knowing how your hormones work and affect you. Take note of whether PMS could be playing a role when you have breakouts.
