Be ready! Adult acne is increasing and it could be part of your life

Adult acne is increasing and it’s more common than many may think. The bad news for women is that as a matter of fact, females are more likely to have it than men.

But, why? Why is it that after having passed adolescence, adults might worry again or for the first time in their lives about pimples?

The answer is not simple. According to many experts, there are several possible causes, but here are the most common:

  1. Hormonal changes
  2. Stress
  3. Diet
  4. Cleansing routine
  5. Health issues

 

Dermatologists say that the first step is to determine the cause of your breakouts, so, we could start going over the list.

Hormonal changes are difficult to detect by the patient, but women could pay special attention to their menstrual cycle. If the acne appears around that time of the month, that’s a good clue to follow.

A good way to fight stress is exercising, and it also helps you to promote a better health in general.

In terms of your diet, experts recommend a low-fat consumption routine, with a lot of water and fresh veggies and fruits.

Now, this might sound crazy, but if you are cleansing your skin too much, that could be the cause of the acne breakout. Dermatologists say that a gentle face wash, once a day is good and enough to protect your skin.

If you follow a healthy diet, if you are taking good care of your skin and your environment and still the acne is persistent, it could be time to visit your doctor. There are different health issues that only a physician could diagnose in order to let you know if they are related to your acne.

As always, don’t give up and take it easy. The most important thing is to take action.

Sleep more and be happier

A well-rested body is a body with better energy levels and alertness…it’s a body ready to face an active and challenging day.

We all know the benefits of a good night of sleeping but seems like we are actually ignoring most of the deepest gains we can get from it.

Did you know that sleep promotes happiness? Yes! After a good night’s sleep, our brain is ready to keep the work of balancing all the enzymes, hormones and chemicals that the body produces and uses for many functions, including the ones that determine if we are happy and relaxed.

Thatś not a surprise if we consider that the lack of sleep has been always associated with depression and other mental problems, right?

Now, a healthy body is a happy body, and that’s precisely what brings us to the next benefit. Our immune system is like an army, and it’s in charge of dealing and fighting against viruses, pathogens, and problems, but in order to do it in the best possible way it needs to rest, and only the proper sleep could offer the time and conditions for it.

The same thing happens with our organs, bones, tissue, muscles, etc. Every single part of the body works tirelessly and a good sleep is not an option, but a need for them to recover and rest.

It’s clear that when someone suffers from insomnia or any other sleep disorder, is because something is not working properly, and the best thing to do is to consult a physician as soon as the first symptoms appear.

Once you have sleep deprivation, the stress, the fatigue, and other conditions make their triumphal entry to your body and to your life, causing an innumerable amount of discomfort. So, it’s very important to take action as soon as you detect the first symptoms of lack of sleep.

Even the simplest cases of insomnia affect your body and your brain and prevent you from enjoying a fully charged life.

Now, if you are lacking sleep time because you have a very intense social life, or because your smart phone is so attractive that you can’t resist to use it once you are in bed, to check your emails, your messages or your social media, then, you have to remember how good you feel after a good night of sleep. Remember that your brain and your body need anything between seven and nine hours of sleep to be ready for the next day, and to show to the world, how happy and smart you can be.
