Adult-Acne

High school health class was supposed to help ease our physical transition into and out of the teen years without cause for embarrassment or worry. The cracked textbooks, and coming-of-age videos assured us that blemishes were an adolescent curse that would cease to exist within a few years. So we blissfully assumed that once we reached the magical age of 21, our acne-pocked skin would magically clear, ending the years of harsh cleansers, spot removers, and drug store concealers. Fast forward 20 years, and we’re double-fisting the MyChelle Clear Skin Cranberry Cleanser in one hand and the Wrinkle Spot Treatment in the other.

Personal experience and advanced research shows many adults experience chronic and occasional breakouts well into their twenties, thirties, and forties. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 50% of women 20-29 years old, 35% of women 30-39 years old, and 26% of women 40-49 reported having acne. (Note: Adult acne is more common in women than men but affects men, too.)

While acne may lay dormant for years, certain circumstances—like stress, hormones, illness, diet, and environmental stressors—can cause it to surface. Currently dealing with good skin that’s gone bad? Our adult acne primer will help guide you through identifying, targeting, and preventing adult acne.

The Grown Up’s Guide to Blemish-Busting

Oily skin is caused by overactive sebaceous glands that produce excess oil, and for most, the impulse is to remedy the condition with harsh skin care products that can, in turn, cause severe dryness and dehydration, complicating treatment. Instead, MyChelle recommends a balanced approach to heal the skin and protect it against future breakouts.

The new and natural MyChelle Clear Skin Collection is a series of five products formulated with select, bioactive ingredients, including the company’s patented NatureClear™ Complex to calm skin, minimize oil production, and leave skin pore-fect! Powerful antioxidants and vitamins also restore strength and improve your complexion.
