Adult Acne

Adult acne affects 25% of all adult men and 50% of adult women at some time in their adult lives. One third of adults affected with facial acne also have acne on their body. These are the official statistics, but many people have a zit or two in their adult lives. People can develop unpleasant acne or have an acne recurrence in their 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond. An article in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science in 2004 stated, "Recent epidemiological studies show that there appears to be an increase in post-adolescent acne, and that the disease is lasting longer and is requiring treatment well into the mid forties. Regardless of when someone struggles with acne, it can be difficult to cope, and can cause depression and social anxiety in an adult the same way it can in a teen.

Although the causes of adult acne are unknown, possible causes include hormones, cosmetics, stress, and an increase of resistant bacteria. Women in particular often experience premenstrual flares, often around the mouth and chin area.

You thought you left it all behind with the homework and classrooms. But no, there it is – adult acne. Adult acne affects 25% of men and 50% of women at some point in their adult lives, and of those affected by facial acne, a third of them also have acne on other parts of their bodies. Age is only a number where acne is concerned. Sufferers can experience acne breakouts in their 20's, 30's, 40's, and beyond.

Adult acne is not just a physical skin condition, it's an emotional one. It can be difficult to manage, and coping with unsightly blemishes can lead to insecurity, just as it did when you were a teen. Adult acne occurs for much the same reason it does during the teen years; hormone fluctuations play a major role, as do environmental aggressors and stress. While you can't do much about the reasons you have adult acne, you can take a proactive approach to treat it and prevent it in the future.

If you suffer from adult acne, the best line of defense is a good acne-fighting skincare routine designed with your adult skin in mind. Adult acne is treated differently than the acne you had in your teens because it's created with ingredients that not only fight acne, but fight aging as well. The two skincare concerns go hand-in-hand, and with help from brands such as SkinMedica and Obagi, you can have clearer, younger-looking skin in no time.

Now is the perfect time to begin your fight for a clear complexion. Dermatologists agree that during the summer months, acne seems to improve, and with the help of targeted treatments from Astonishing Skincare - Cleansers, exfoliators, moisturizers, and sunscreens – you can take advantage of the season and have beautiful, clear, younger-looking skin before fall.
