As an adult I thought I would out grow acne but I didn’t. I suffer from Cystic Acne which is noted on the information graphic below as Cyst/Nodule. It is the most severe form of acne because it is very deep rooted in the inner layers of the skin and the nodules are painful. I started seeing a dermatologist in my youth around 16 years old and still visit them today. I have educated myself and have learned acne is triggered differently for each person (see the section “Types” on the infographic). For example, my acne stems from stress and hormones. I have also learned how to treat my acne, using my dermatological products and my Greek inspired YASOU skin care products as a total skin care regime. Today I am proud to say my skin has never looked healthier.
The one thing I can pass on to you is that cleaning your skin every day and being gentle to it is very important. You can find some great DIY cleansers and information in the article “Keep Your Skin Clean With DIY Natural Skin Cleansers.” I also came across the infographic below and thought it was informative, offering basic information that could be helpful, so please take a look. The more information you have about adult acne, the wiser you will be in learning how to treat it and care for your skin.
