The 3 Most Common Types of Acne, and How to Treat Each

Girl with acne


Pimples aren’t just a hallmark of puberty—adult acne is on the rise, thanks to stress, diet, and fluctuating hormones. Here, a comprehensive guide for clearer skin.

How it happens: Therootof these start with “sebum plugs” in a pore, or hair follicle, explains Rachel Nazarian, MD, a dermatologist in New York City. A blackhead is sebum plus bacteria and dead skin cells that plug the opening of the pore. When a blocked pore closes, a whitehead forms.

Acne-proof your lifestyle
Adjust your diet. High-glycemic foods can mess with your hormones, points out Dr. Nazarian. Try cutting these out and see if your skin improves. If not, let your derm know.
