I have adult acne. I use good hygiene, eat healthy, and exercise. Is there anything else (or more specific) I can do with my lifestyle to reduce it?

In brief: You are what you eat

In my practice there are two big causes of adult acne.
One being hormone balance, and the second being dietary. Hormone balance can be tricky, but if you are a woman, you can talk to your gynecologist about hormone balance. As for diet, you should look to remove processed foods, chemicals, additives and other hormones in foods that you eat. Foods can cause an increase in inflammation of your skin.
