Adult Acne Causes and Cures


You would think after surviving high school and becoming an adult that you wouldn’t have to worry about your skin breaking out with acne. But adults get acne, too - and dealing with acne as an adult can be irritating and at times just as socially awkward as it is for a teenager.

There are many different adult acne causes. As with all cases of acne, sebum production can be a problem. Too much and the follicles of the skin get clogged, leading to an outbreak of acne.

Whatever clogs your follicles can cause acne to develop. If you wash your hair, add a hair product and then your hair is constantly on your forehead or on the sides of your face, then the oil from the product can work to clog your follicles.

Your routine beauty care can cause adult acne. Removing unwanted body or facial hair can trigger the release of bacteria that’s present on the skin and allow the bacteria to enter the follicle.

In fact, bacteria is one of the most notable causes of acne. You can get the bacteria that causes acne from pressing your cell phone against your face. For female adults, hormonal changes such as pregnancy or menopause can cause acne to break out.

The medications you take, both over the counter and prescriptions can contain ingredients that bring on acne. Using certain beauty products can also cause it. Genetics can also play a part in causing acne.

Though people think that stress can cause acne, it doesn't. What stress can do, however, is make acne worse. But you don’t have to put up with the frustrating or embarrassing outbreaks of acne. There are some cures that can clear your skin right up.

If your acne is caused by the production of too much sebum, you can use an over the counter medication that cuts down the oil, which will then clear up the acne. You may need to see your doctor and get a prescription medication if your skin is infected and over the counter medications aren’t getting rid of the acne in a timely manner.

You may need an antibiotic. Birth control pills can also be used to treat acne. Or, there are alternative treatments that can be used to treat acne. Some of these methods include foods that contain natural acids called alpha hydroxy acid.

Rather than eating them, these foods are applied to the area with the acne. Fruits like oranges, grapefruit and lemons contain this acid. Taking zinc can also help clear up an acne outbreak and some oils can be used to treat acne. To get rid of acne faster - or for difficult cases, some people choose to use laser treatment.

Finally, and more holistically, a lot of people use internal nutrition to promote wellness. This can give their bodies the ability to deal the pressure and stresses and conditions that underpin the acne condition. Often use of the Herbalife nutrition products leads over a few months to dramatic reduction in acne outbreaks. If you are looking for a long term solution that this is an answer that would be worth investigating.
