Have you ever thought why am I suffering with acne now I’m an adult? Isn’t this something that goes with adolescence.

Facts on Adult Acne

Approximately 80% of people aged 11 to 30 are effected by acne. It can even effect you right up to 50/menopausal. Although we can find acne embarrassing and can become so self conscious of the issue; you need to know adult acne is actually quite common.

So why do we get adult acne? Why do some grow out of it? and why are some of us not suffering until much later than expected?

The cause of adult acne is much the same as what causes teen acne:

  • excess oil
  • bacteria
  • changes in hormones; pregnancy/menstruation/menopausal

But other possible triggers are; smoking, cosmetic use, stress, taking certain medications and poor diet. Acne can be hereditary – so if a parent had acne your at higher risk.
