What Is Adult Acne And How To Deal With It

Dealing with acne problems has always been a matter of grief. Many of us thought that we left behind ugly and painful pimples and scars well behind in our teenage years only to discover it gaining momentum yet again. And this time, it is worse than imagination permits. If you are currently stuck in a similar scenario, you are definitely dealing with adult acne. 

Are you wondering what adult acne is? To give you a brief overview, adult acne, also referred to as post-adolescent acne is acne that usually strikes adults after 25. This bitter experience for your skin can continue in your 30s and stretches well over to the 40s too. The causes of adult acne can be credited to many factors. The most common ones are excess oil or sebum production, clogged pores, sticky cell residue, bacteria and inflammation.

Persisting acne throughout your adulthood can be both a cause of concern and embarrassment. To top it off, these lesions are extremely painful, spread like wildfire and can lead to scars and discolouration if popped or picked.

  • Always cleanse your face
  • The number one tip that we can give you for dealing with acne is always keeping your skin fresh and clean, no matter what.

  • Exfoliate for better complexion
  • Acne issues can aggravate if your skin isn’t in mint condition. Excess oil production, makeup or skincare residues, dead skin cells and other impurities can wreak havoc on your skin. We suggest taking care of your skin by using exfoliating masks that go to lengths deeper than the eye can see. For a smooth skin purification experience, opt for our Mama Cica Oil Fix Exfoliating Gel Mask. As the name suggests, it is a gel-based mask that is compatible for oily and acne-prone skin, unclogs pores, keeps excess oil off the face and prevents acne. Enriched with green algae powder and rosemary leaf oil, this skin-detox is surely some TLC for your skin.

  • Pat on some essence for dewy glow
  • The onset of acne can signal more incoming skin issues like dullness, discolouration, dry, blotchy patches and much more. Ensure that your skin is able to soak in the right amount of hydration to keep these issues at bay. Consider incorporating a skin essence which is lighter in consistency but delivers enough hydration. Our Mama Cica Intense Oil Control Essence is a great pick-me-up for acne prone skin. Infused with hyaluronic acid, this lightweight essence controls oil output, addresses inflamed and irritated skin along with brightening and improving skin texture. 

  • Choose the right moisturizer
  • Moisturizing for skin laden with acne can be a daunting task. The best nourishment for acne prone skin is a moisturizer that strikes the right balance of hydration without being greasy. Since an oily or sticky moisturizer can invite acne or worsen already existing ones, it is best to stick with an option like our Matcha Better Anti-Shine Moisturizer. Enriched with K-beauty faves like matcha green tea, bakuchiol and licorice, this ultra light gel moisturizer is mattifying and non-comedogenic that keeps the grease at bay. It tackles acne with its skin soothing properties while boosting up hydration for plump, moisturized and supple skin.
