Adult Acne Is Natural And So Is The Cure

Mar 21, 2008
People from ages twenty-one through forty and up can be affected by a very common skin condition, adult acne. The most to suffer from this chronic disorder are women. Symptoms can include pimples, blocked pores, whiteheads, and blackheads. Acne can manifest itself wherever the skin's oil glands are located, such as the chest and back but mostly on the face.

Factors that encourage adult acne are very different from those involved with juvenile acne. Adult acne usually involves normal or combination skin or even dry and sensitive skin, rather than oily skin which is the typical cause of juvenile acne. One form of acne called acne vulgaris is characterized by the presence of, pimples, black heads, small superficial sebaceous cysts and scars.

For adults, there are numerous factors that can contribute to having acne. The most well known cause is stress, causing production of Cortisol, a hormone that is known for promoting acne. Even coffee consumption promotes the creation of Cortisol. Smoking, poor diet, and low consumption of free fatty acids can all lead to an adult acne condition.

Worldwide, millions of adults are affected by acne. Over-the-counter products can help treat acne, but they contain chemicals that may deteriorate the skin and may only work for a limited amount of time. Natural and herbal remedies are being looked at now in the wake of hazards of chemicals used in over-the-counter products. Herbal remedies aren't as harsh and contain no chemicals - they are compounded mixtures of readily available plants and herbs.

Natural treatments for adult acne can be in the form of lotions, creams, home made products or even herbal formulations. Some of the herbal acne treatments use echinacea and tea tree oil for treating acne and is available widely. Echinacea and Oregon grape help in increasing the immune system of the body. Tea tree oil consists of terpenoids, which is known for its antifungal and antiseptic property.

Acne scars can be very embarassing, but there are several different home remedies that you can try to lessen or remove these scars. To cleanse the pores, use distilled white vinegar topically. To remove the scars try almond oil, and to get rid of the dead skin cells try apricot and citrus juices as these are natural exfoliants. Finally, to aid in the healing process, use a honey mask as this has an anti bacterial quality.

Herbs such as green tea, chamomile, and even oatmeal are great remedies for treating inflammation since they have anti-inflammatory characteristics. Any itching sensations are reduced by washing with oatmeal. Ginger also reduces redness and inflammation. Licorice surprisingly increases mucous which stimulates the adrenal gland and increases natural defense systems in the body. This removes any bacteria and germs that may be the cause of acne.

Adult acne is a common chronic skin condition suffered by people from ages twenty-one through forty and up. Factors that encourage this are very different from those involved with juvenile acne.
