The sad truth? Acne doesn’t magically disappear on your 20th birthday.
Struggling with blemishes into your 20s, 30s, or even 40s, you wonder:
How old do I have to get? At what age does acne STOP?
And now the products you relied on as a teenager aren’t working on your adult breakouts.
What are you supposed to do?
At Averr Aglow, adult acne has been our mission from the start. We’re here to help with 6 tips to leave your breakouts in the dust!
1. Use Acne Treatments for Adults
Sorry, but the skincare you loved in high school won’t help you as an adult.
Teenage skin is strong enough to endure harsh acids and chemicals, but now those ingredients will just leave you red, itchy, and flaky.
Adult skin requires more sensitive products. Prioritize natural ingredients that nourish your skin rather than punish it!
Our Radiant Cleansing Nectar uses botanicals like jojoba, chamomile, and hawthorn berry to gently and effectively remove impurities — without damaging your complexion!
2. Clean Up Your Diet
Be wary of foods that influence acne-triggering hormones, like:
And give your complexion a boost with skin-healthy foods full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!
The best of the best? Whole foods like dark leafy greens, fish, berries, nuts, and eggs.
3. Try Techniques to De-Stress
Stress releases acne-triggering hormones like cortisol. So relieving stress can also reduce your breakouts!
- Go to bed early
- Snuggle pets or loved ones
- Have a self-care spa night
- Enjoy your favorite hobby
4. Don't Pop Your Pimples
These aren’t typical teenage whiteheads. Adult acne often appears as deep, inflamed cysts.
Pimple poppers beware — cysts are nearly unpoppable! Trying to burst them can lead to infection and scarring.
Instead, use a healing treatment like our Clear Skin Elixir. This overnight face mask uses ingredients like French pink clay to detoxify blemishes and deposit skin-restoring nutrients.
5. Choose Products Designed to Work Together
Don’t pick and choose from different skincare lines. Their ingredients may fight or cancel each other out, so the products (and your skin) never live up to their full potential.
Choose a complete, well-rounded product line that addresses all your skincare needs. Our Clear Skin Kit provides a total solution, with balanced products working together to:
- Heal breakouts
- Clear clogged pores
- Restore dull and lackluster skin
- Even out skin tone
Plus, all of our products are gentle, natural, and designed for sensitive complexions. (Hey there, adult skin!)
6. Give Yourself Time to Heal
You’ve waited a long time for beautiful skin. But go easy on yourself! Your skin needs time to fully heal and clarify.
The results will be so worth it! xx
