Adult Acne

Adult Acne Causes

Do you suffer from adult acne? Chances are, if you suffered from acne when you were a teenager, you are quite likely to have some adult acne at some point in your life. However, if you haven’t had much acne as a teenager and you have it now as an adult, you are probably wondering why you started it. There are many adult acne causes, and no two people are the same in this regard, but there are some common causes of adult Acne Care.

1. Hormones:

If you are a female going through her menstrual cycle or pregnancy, you can expect to get acne.

2. Stress:

My dermatologist told me that part of  my adult acne was caused by stress. Then she went on to tell me to try to cut stress out of my life. I don’t know anything about you, but if you can just “cut out stress” in your life, we wouldn’t have it at the beginning! This is obviously not a very viable option, but it is still an adult acne cause.

3. Beauty products:

Many adults, especially women, use bath and beauty products that contain fragrances or other harsh chemicals that irritate the skin. Ladies, if you haven’t done so yet, switch to makeup that isn’t comedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores; Clinique or mineral makeup are good alternatives.

For both genders, switch to a no-fragrance-added shampoo. The zinc helps to kill bacteria in the skin and does not contain any hard fragrances or ingredients. It also keeps get rid of acne which is particularly irritating, at least for me.

4. Acne Cleansing Diet:

One of the only ways you are going to control your adult acne is with an acne cleansing diet. You can use food and things you can find in the grocery store without ever having to visit the dermatologist.
