Hello I'm new to the group and I have a question.

Hello ladies. I'm not exactly 30 yet (will be 29 this year), but I have a question and I don't think I'll get very good answers in the 20s group since most are in their early 20's. 

I still get acne like a teen. My face looks horrible and I just want to crawl in a hole and hide when I look in the mirror. Does anyone know of anything that is directed towards older women in the way of face washing?

If you're in the same boat as me how often do you wash your face and what helps you? Also...do you know of any good products out there that minimizes pours? The pours under my eyes are huge. 

Thanks for the help ladies.

I don't know but I would try to see a dermatologist. They can help you fix your specific problem.

I agree with going to see a dermatologist, but you may also want to see an allergist. In my early to mid thirties I thought I had acne (white heads, blackheads, and pimples) but it wasn't acne it was a food allergy. Once I stopped eating the food new "acne" stopped forming and in 2 weeks my face was 90% clear.

At this age, there is usually something systematic causing it. An allergist or dermatologist could be a help.

We just had to see a dermatologist for our 7month old...he has eczema. He recommended an otc cleanser and lotion called CeraVe. I like to review products before I buy/use them. A lot of the reviews were from women in their mid twenties and thirties. They were saying it works great for adult acne and helps minimize pores and balance oily skin. I haven't tried it for acne but it might be worth looking into. Its worked wonders on his skin so far. You can purchase it at Walmart, CVS or Walgreens.
