Adults And Acne

Jan 28, 2008
Around 25% of all men and 50% of all women in their adult lives will suffer from acne. Today people in their 20's, 30's and 40's are going to their doctor to seek medical assistance in order to treat adult acne. Just like teenagers, some of these people are also finding the condition very difficult to cope with.

It is hard to believe that this skin condition, which is common in teenagers, is now becoming just as common in adults as well. Although many people are unsure what the true cause of this skin condition there have been plenty of ideas put about. Certainly one cause which seems to be prominent for this condition is hormonal changes that are taking place in the person's body. Therefore, it is important that if you at any stage feel you may have acne you should seek medical advice from you doctor as soon as you possibly can.

Along with hormonal changes in a person's body possibly being the reason why as an adult they have got acne, but there are other reasons for which this has been caused. Below we take a look at a just what some of these are.

1. You may be suffering from this condition because your diet is extremely bad. Look carefully and you may find that you are actually consuming high amounts of fat, sugar and carbohydrates without realizing it. By having a diet that is high in such items means that your body is unable to absorb the nutrients it needs effectively. Along with you suffering from acne you may find you have problems with your digestive system and also in relation to your hormones as well.

Along with eating too, many of the above mentioned those people who eat far too many processed foods would find that they are more at risk of developing adult acne at some stage of their adult lives. Therefore, if you really want to ensure that your body remains fit and healthy and reduce the risk of suffering from this skin condition you need to have a diet in place that contains lots of fresh produce in it. Also drinking plenty of water (around 8 glasses each day) will help by removing unwanted toxins from the body also.

2. Some adults may suffer find they suffer from this form of acne because they have inherited a gene from a parent that makes them far more susceptible. In some cases this condition can become severe and if not treated correctly can lead to their skin becoming scarred.

3. One other reason as to why you may be suffering from this skin problem is because of the makeup and skin care products that you use and which are synthetically made. The chemicals in these can often cause imbalances in the acid and alkaline in your skin and cause spots to erupt. If you really want to stop the condition becoming any worse or prevent the condition altogether use products that contain only natural ingredients.

Above we have shown you a few of the reasons why you may be suffering from adult acne. But just like teenagers you can use many prescribed and over the counter products in order to treat it. Along with using these it is important that you make changes to both your diet and lifestyle as well.
