Hormonal acne and birth control pills – one of the most common types of adult woman's acne is hormonal acne that tends to flare up just before the start of your period. For some, there are only a few minor pimples that will go away very quickly. For others, they experience painful inflamed acne that takes a few weeks or even longer to heal.

Use a face wash designed for adult women – There are lots of different face washes on the market today that are designed for acne or acne prone skin. But what types of face wash is good for acne prone adult woman's skin? The face wash should be gentle, cleans well, gets rid of oil / dirt yet don't strip the skin of oil.

However, a very light moisturizer that is designed for oily skin can actually help. Most adult women that suffer from acne tend to have oily skin.
