Most of us feel that we can breathe a sigh of relief when we eventually reach the age of 40. Youthful insecurities often give way to a kind acceptance and qualities that once felt like differences now feel unique and individual.
Although breakouts are stereotypically part of a teenagers experience, getting acne as a 40 year old woman is more common than you may think. The hormonal component of this shift has to do with the alternating levels of androgens in the body.
Here are some methods which can help you deal with this problem:
Start taking oral probiotics: Our digestion can be affected by stress which shifts our inner microbial system leading to inflammation. Eventually the gut becomes leaky and toxins are released into the bloodstream causing inflammation throughout the body. Oral probiotics regulate the imbalance of bacteria and reduce oil levels to treat acne.
Drink hot lemon water in the morning: Squeeze a full lemon into a mug full of hot water and drink it when you wake up. This will help to flush out toxins and purify the body internally.
Use of topical retinoids: Topical retinoids are the first step of treatment for mild to moderate retinoids. Retinoids help your skin slough off dead cells at a more normal rate so the dead skin cells don’t bind together and clog your pores.
Use benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid: Benzoyl peroxide destroys the bacteria associated with acne. Salicylic acid on the skin helps to correct the abnormal shedding of cells.
Consult your doctor: If all the above methods doesn’t seem to be working, consult with your dermatologist to seek further help.
