Goodbye to adult acne

By Healthy Magazine
Take control of your skin to banish blemishes and breakouts

Troublesome skin isn’t just a problem for teenagers – breakouts can afflict us throughout life. In fact, the NHS reports that more than 80 per cent of acne cases occur in adult women. It’s thought that this is caused by changes in hormone levels at certain times and is commonly associated with periods, pregnancy and polycystic ovary syndrome. Adult acne can also be triggered by some cosmetic products, certain medications, smoking or even wearing a headband.

Simply put, these breakouts are caused by your skin’s pores becoming blocked and infected. But even if you can’t prevent the underlying hormonal causes, you can treat and prevent those unsightly breakouts with the right skincare regime. If you suffer from oily or acne-prone skin, try the Alba Botanica ACNEdote collection, which includes ACNEdote Face & Body Scrub, Deep Clean Astringent, Invisible Treatment Gel and Oil Control Gel. Its maximum-strength formulation contains 2% salicylic acid, naturally derived from willow bark extract, along with soothing aloe, and is designed to tackle acne head on, penetrating and unclogging pores and preventing future breakouts.

Powerful and naturally effective, the Alba Botanica ACNEdote collection is also affordable enough to become an essential part of your daily skincare regime. Prices range from £7.99 – £9.99.
