How Do I Treat Adult Acne?

Effective Treatment Available for Adult Acne

Over ninety percent of acne patients, both teens and adults, respond to treatment, although the treatment may need to be continued for months or even years
While it may seem that nothing will clear a case of adult acne, the fact is that treatment can be effective. Often combination therapy (the use of two or more treatments), a dermatologist’s help, and a bit of patience are required.
The following describes treatment that can be effective for adult acne.
Topical Therapy

Topical treatment for acne includes creams, lotions, gels, and solutions. A topical medication that combines benzoyl peroxide and a topical antimicrobial such as clindamycin or erythromycin can be effective for adults with mild to moderate acne. Combining topical clindamycin with a retinoid also can be effective. These products require a prescription. An over-the-counter product that contains sodium sulfacetamide and sulfur helps some adults
A topical retinoid is often used to treat the small bumps under the skin and blackheads.
Oral Medications
As adult acne often involves hormonal swings, an oral medication may be necessary to minimize these fluctuations and control the acne. Medications that can minimize hormonal fluctuations in women include some oral contraceptive pills, spironolactone, and hormone replacement therapy.
An oral antibiotic also may be part of an adult’s acne treatment plan and can be used to help get the acne under control.
Proper Skin Care Essential
Here are a few of the most common herbal, homeopathic, and traditional methods that can be used to treat adult acne.
Adult Acne Products
Home Therapy: Organic Apple Cider Vinegar swabs and other astringent cleansers work to remove the oil buildup that may become blocked in the skin's glands. These products may cause dryness, itching, and redness, so be sure to use them only on problem areas.
Herbs: Herbs such as chamomile, lavender, juniper, bergamot, dandelion root, and burdock root can be used to reduce toxicity and improve the overall condition of the skin. Echinacea and poke root are often used for their anti-inflammatory properties and red clover may be beneficial for its estrogenic action. Witch hazel has excellent astringent properties and may be very effective on adult acne.
Acupuncture: Stagnant of Chi in the channels of the face is said to be the cause of acne. Acupuncture performed on these points of the face may help relieve adult acne.
Surgery: In moderate to severe cases of acne, doctors may use surgery to open up the blemishes and remove blackheads and whiteheads. Unlike medication treatments, the effects of acne surgery are usually more immediate. And surgery is also effective in reducing the development and visibility of adult acne scars.
Cleaning the intestinal Tract: Acne can be a by-product of a filthy intestinal tract and colon. In most cases when the colon is clean the acne will go away. I recommend the intestinal cleanser Oxy-Powder.
