Skin issues aren’t just dependent on your age. No matter what stage you are in life you can suffer from various types of skin conditions and ailments.
 
Here we have the four most common ones and offer tips on how to treat them.
 
Acne
Acne can hit at any time in your life whether you are in your teens or thirties. The best way to treat it is to keep your skin clean with gentle washing and use a product suitable for your skin type. Avoid picking up products targeted at younger people. The older you get the more sensitive and thinner your skin becomes so you need make sure you get one suitable for you.
 
Psoriasis
Psoriasis causes your skin to become very itchy and flair up anywhere on the body. Unfortunately, there is no cure for it so you should book an appointment with your doctor who will be able to prescribe something that will help keep it under control. Avoid harsh chemicals and take cod liver oil supplements.
 
Rosacea
Rosacea typically affects your cheeks and nose and can cause parts of your face to become red and flushed, swollen, scaly, sensitive or rough. Unfortunately, it can’t be cured but you can manage it by wearing suncream, finding the triggers that cause it to flare up or trying laser treatment for particularly severe cases.
 
Warts
Warts are flesh coloured lumps that usually appear on your hands. To get id of them head to the pharmacy and pick up an over-the-counter cream. You only need to book an appointment if the wart is in an awkward spot or is particularly annoying you.
 
No matter your age you are bound to experience skin issues that can leave you feeling down and a little insecure.
