For anyone who has suffered from acne, you know that it can really get you down. Adult acne can be so frustrating. In my experience, the key is to be able to feel you are in control over the acne as opposed to the acne over you. How do you this?
You develop a management plan. You learn about best practice and how best to treat the acne depending on what stage it is at. You then have the choice to treat it with topical creams/peels and the best home care daily routines for your skin.
If the skin is not clearing up you have the choice to attend a Doctor for a prescription to start a tablet. The tablets that are normally prescribed are usually either an antibiotic, Dianette (which is also used as a contraceptive pill) and the last resort Roacctuane. Depending on what is acceptable to the individual the choice is theirs. For example, a few spots may not bother someone but for another person, this may not be acceptable.
I have found in my experience that clients I meet don’t have all the knowledge so they don’t feel in control. Knowledge and a good understanding are key.
Acne vulgaris is a very common skin condition that usually starts in teenagers. Although adult acne is equally a common condition. It can be mild. “Problem skin” can be characterised by blackheads, whiteheads, pus-filled spots and oily or dry skin. The acne bacterium (propionobacterium acnes) can multiply in those prone to acne. This triggers inflammation and the formation of red pus-filled spots. For the majority, it tends to resolve in the late teens or twenties but for some patients, acne can persist for many years.
