How to Handle Adult Acne

Acne is often regarded as a teenager’s suffering, along with their freshmen yearbook photos, braces, and prom. But the truth is, no matter what age you are, you can be affected by acne at any time. In fact, many dermatologists are reporting an increase in acne among adults now more than ever, with 25% of men suffering acne at some point in their adult life, and 50% of women suffering as well.

As frustrating as it may seem, what causes acne for many of today’s youth is also what causes acne for adults. Acne is a skin condition which involves the clogging of pores by dead skin cells, and an over-production of oil then inflaming the clogged pore, resulting in a red bump on the surface of the skin. However, though adult acne develops in the same way, different factors can combine to trigger the acne. For youth it is often raging hormones that create an imbalance within the body, resulting in an over-production of oil.

Adults also see acne reappear during pregnancy, perimenopause and menopause as hormonal imbalances are not isolated to teenagers. However, more often than not, adult acne can be due to other factors. For many adults, stress plays a large role in the development of acne. Pressures of work, family life, and even the recent economy, can all contribute to skin flair ups. Also, women using especially thick or heavy make-up may see acne breakouts more than usual. Moisturizers, certain sunscreens and even hair products can be troublesome. Prescription drugs can also play a role in adult acne with many complaints centered around those that have taken corticosteroids.

Now that you know why, and what some of the causes are when it comes to adult acne it's more important to know how to combat it. Since the development of acne for adults results from clogged pores and bacteria, the same process as teens who suffer from acne, fighting it is very similar.

First it is important to note that dermatologists recommend a gentle cleansing, usually twice a day. Make sure not to over-cleanse as that can be very harmful for your skin. Salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are also proven acne combatants that many doctors recommend. For those with a mild to average case of acne, look for cleansers and relief gels with these ingredients, often found over-the-counter. Normally topical creams can help fight current acne, and prevent future breakouts. But, if necessary, homeopathic and prescription medications can also help the battle.

The most important thing to remember, when fighting pimples, is patience. There is no cure for acne, but understanding why your acne develops and how to best fight it should get you back on the path of smooth, silky skin.
