How to Slow Down Your Breakouts

Does it sometimes feel like you’re still in puberty because you break out that much? Even though your voice may no longer be cracking and your hormones may not be raging as much, having acne can really put a damper on your life. So, how can you slow down your adult acne breakouts?

Use Mineral Makeup

If you are a female, or if you wear makeup on a regular basis, have you noticed that the oils and chemicals in the makeup break you out? Because foundations and even some powder contain a lot of oils and chemicals in them, they can lead to extreme and regular breakouts. Here at Dr. David A. Schlessinger’s office, we use mineral makeup to help patients not only cover up their imperfections but to get rid of acne as well. Because mineral makeup doesn’t contain the same harsh chemicals and oils as regular makeup, it’s less likely to break you out.

Wash Your Face

If you forget to wash your face every night before you hit the pillow, then you are doing your skin a serious disservice. By washing all of the makeup, dirt, and oil off of your face before you go to bed every night, you can help to drastically cut down on how many breakouts you get.

Get Facials

By getting regular facials from Dr. Schlessinger, you can help balance out the oil on your skin and get rid of blackheads and whiteheads in the process. During your initial consultation, we will go over all of our facial options to help you choose the one that will help you get rid of your acne faster.

Having adult acne can really make you feel like you’re back in junior high again. If you would like to learn more about how we can help you combat your acne, schedule an appointment at our Woodbury office and call us at (516) 496-2122.
