Adult Acne Treatment and Causes

Adult Acne Treatment and Causes

If you have adult acne and are looking for something to help treat it, there are several reasons why Revitalizing Mist may be perfect for you. It is gentle, non-irritating, and doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or fragrances that could be causing your adult acne in the first place. Here are the top causes of adult acne that have been identified by dermatologists and how Revitalizing Mist can help with each one in the article below.

Polluted Air

Air pollution is often overlooked as a possible cause of acne, but there’s increasing evidence linking airborne particles to skin health. When you’re exposed to air pollution, your body releases excess sebum as a protective response. This extra oil clogs pores and creates pimples. If you notice pimples appearing after being in traffic or near construction, consider cutting back on time spent outdoors and installing air purifiers in your home.

For natural protection against pollutants, try using Revitalizing Mist regularly.


Not all stress is bad. Positive stress, like working to achieve a goal, can push you to excel. The negative kind, like dealing with an overbearing boss or driving in rush-hour traffic, can cause skin-damaging inflammation. What’s more, stress has been shown to contribute to major health problems like cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

If you’re already struggling with acne, stress may be contributing to your flare-ups. That’s why we created our calming blend of lavender and chamomile oils to help soothe your mind and body when life gets stressful. 



Revitalizing Mist contains soothing aloe vera and witch hazel to calm irritated skin. And if that’s not enough, it’s also packed with antioxidants from green tea extract, vitamin C and E, plus hydrating glycerin. These ingredients work together to provide powerful anti-inflammatory benefits that help restore balance and reduce redness caused by acne. This spray will quickly become your go-to solution for reducing visible signs of stress on contact.

Contaminated Water

Polluted water is among one of the most common causes of acne. It is also more insidious since it can occur without any odor or visible appearance. When chlorine-based chemicals are used to disinfect drinking water, they can react with organic material to create chloramines which irritate the skin. If you suspect that your water may be causing your acne breakouts, try switching to bottled drinking water for several weeks to see if it helps clear things up.

In addition, avoid hot showers and baths as much as possible (use cool water) because water dries out your skin and increases oil production. It would be best if you also showered right after swimming in a pool or lake because exposure to polluted water will increase irritation. A regular application of Revitalizing Mist will make things better.

Sun Damage

Sun damage is a serious skin concern for many people, and it’s not only bad for your appearance; it can also cause premature aging. The sun can severely damage your skin, especially if you are not wearing sunscreen every day. Protecting yourself from UV rays is critical in helping clear up acne breakouts on your face, arms, legs, or chest.

If you aren’t already using a Revitalizing Mist daily, start today. And don’t forget to reapply after swimming or sweating. This will help protect your skin against future dark spots and wrinkles. Revitalizing Mist is one of our most popular products that has proven results in keeping away those pesky blemishes while hydrating simultaneously. It helps eliminate acne-causing bacteria while calming inflamed skin caused by stress, hormones, or other environmental factors. Don’t let adult acne keep you from living life without feeling self-conscious about how others perceive you.

Bad Skincare Products

Products containing harsh ingredients or alcohol can cause drying, flaking, and irritation. When your skin is dry, it’s more likely to produce extra oil, which can result in acne breakouts. A popular ingredient that can dry out your skin is benzoyl peroxide (BPO).

While BPO does kill bacteria associated with acne formation, it can also strip your skin of essential oils, causing dehydration. Your best bet is to avoid products containing excessive alcohol or irritating ingredients. It may be tempting to reach for a product that promises overnight results, but many over-the-counter treatments are formulated for short-term use only. If you have persistent adult acne, ask your dermatologist about prescription options or try the Revitalizing Mist.

Going Overboard on Exfoliation

Exfoliation is suitable for all skin types, but it’s important to ensure you’re not doing too much or using products that will over-exfoliate your skin. For normal to dry skin, we recommend a gentle exfoliant once every two days; those with sensitive skin should be careful not to go overboard, as harsh ingredients can exacerbate redness and irritation.

If you notice your skin getting irritated by an exfoliant, cut back on how often you use it, and use Revitalizing Mist too. If you have oily skin, try an exfoliating toner instead of a scrub, it will cleanse excess oil without stripping away moisture.

Hormonal Changes

Changes in estrogen levels in women can cause acne. Hormonal changes are also common in men going through male-to-female transitions. In both cases, keeping your skin clean with a healthy dose of moisturizer is key to an even complexion.

Alternatively, you can supplement your daily diet with vitamin B6 or zinc to regulate hormone production. Talk to your doctor about these options if you think they could help you banish breakouts. 

Too much oil on your face might also be triggering pimples. Therefore, you must use only non-comedogenic products specifically designed for oily skin. Look for Revitalizing Mist made from natural ingredients that will combat excess oil without irritating.

Irritated Skin From Shaving

Chopping off a layer or two of skin every few days is annoying and can irritate your skin, which may lead to acne. Men who shave are at an increased risk of developing acne. To avoid unnecessary irritation, always use the Revitalizing Mist. The lather will help soften up stubble, making it easier to remove. It’ll also protect your sensitive skin from nicks and cuts that could cause breakouts. If you have susceptible skin, consider using a single-blade razor.

These razors glide across your face more smoothly than multi-blade models, so they’re less likely to irritate your skin. If you prefer multi-blade razors, try replacing your current blades with new ones more frequently—every couple of weeks instead of every month—to reduce tugging on hairs and scraping against your face.

Overuse of Facial Cleansers

You don’t need to be harsh on your skin. Overusing facial cleansers can cause irritation that can trigger breakouts. If you suspect you might be using too many acne treatments, talk to your dermatologist about a gentler routine that works for you. Consider switching from an aggressive scrub or exfoliator to the Revitalizing Mist.

Your other alternative is cleansing with water only (like every night before bed). The fewer products you use on your face, the better off it will be.

Dead Skin Cells Clogging Pores

Did you know that most acne is caused by dead skin cells clogging pores? This buildup occurs when your body doesn’t shed off old skin cells properly, which can lead to clogged pores and, subsequently, adult acne.

Revitalizing Mist gently exfoliates away dead skin cells, improving your complexion as well as preventing adult acne.

Final Thoughts

Being familiar with the causes of acne in adults makes it easier to find a ready and trustworthy solution. Having a tested and quality skin care product like Revitalizing Mist at the ready is the best thing you can do for your skin.

There’s no acne level that’s too complex for it to handle.
