The snow-white skin that you have prided yourself from your teenage years has suddenly turned into a face ashamed of an evil witch when you were 30!
“Acne, at my age?” This is often the distressed statement of men and women pockmarked in their 30’s through 40’s afflicted with adult acne.
This problem is certainly not the work of a vengeful sorcerer. Acne vulgaris is what this most common skin disorder in the United States is scientifically called. Statistics says 15 million people in the US by themselves are affected by acne. It is an embarrassing problem among teenagers. But this condition is not only limited to those uncomfortable years. Adult acne is also prevalent, especially among people in the age
group of 25 to 40.
Acne is a disease that resulted from the accumulation of sebum, an intellectual term for oil, under the skin. When this happens and the process of desquamation (the human form of molting) goes wrong, the pores become clogged. The aggravation will continue and an infection will soon be established.
Propionibacterium acnes causes this infection. Overproduction of oil and mismanagement of the cell detachment process is equal to bunged pores. Clogged pores plus P. acnes, the scoundrel, amounts to rupture. Those annoying zits are produced as easy as that.
One of the thrust forces that can cause the onset of acne includes the elevation of testosterone levels among teenagers. No, Toblerone is not badly written. No matter how many anecdotes you’ve heard about chocolate addiction, causing zits to dominate your face, there really is not enough
to prove it. Testosterone is a chemical produced by the body that increases the production of sebum and changes the keratin of the hair follicles. Testosterone is an androgen. Androgen is a hormone produced at high levels among males. This is the reason behind the worst cases of
acne among teenagers rather than girls.
Adult acne is called acne rosacea. It is characterized by: thick, red skin on the nose and cheeks, pus-filled blisters, small red bumps and small red blood vessels seen on the surface of the skin. It is most commonly associated with increased levels of stress. It is not interesting?
how does the body react to this stimulus? DO NOT. When it runs out, as Gizmo gets wet, our skin could actually give birth to small monsters! Although they are not as problematic as gremlins, they could be just as annoying as well. Seriously, pimples can be difficult to treat, and can cause depression and anxiety in an adult in the same way you can in a teenager. It is believed that work pressure and family responsibilities possibly affect the normal balance of our hormones. And messy hormones mean having to endure bumpy skin caused by adult acne.
Apart from hormonal imbalance triggered by stress, alcohol consumption, hot alcohol consumption and smoking are also considered adult acne tomexacerbate. This may help you reconsider your
preferences and eating habits.
Acne injuries are commonly found on the face, but they can also jump out at any time on the neck, chest, back, shoulders, scalp, and upper arms and legs. Adult Acne is More
persistent acne teenager. It is because adults are constantly exposed to the many factors that cause
Breakouts Another setback of adult acne is permanent scarring. It is evidence of inevitable reality that with the advent of age, the skin loses its erstwhile ability to repair itself. As if it were necessary to remind him of that when his face begins to wrinkle already. Now here’s more screaming in terror for, especially those in their mid-20’s: adult acne causes PREMATURE AGING. Is not that
just nervous wracking? Stop the endless yada about how adult acne could destroy us more. As the teacher Yoda puts it, educated we must be with the crusade towards a clearer and younger skin. Or at least the skin that is just our age we must maintain.
At first glance of evil pimples along with gray hair and wrinkles (talk about signs of exaggerated aging), as with teenagers, the urge dictates tightening. But you very well know that squeezing is a great no-no. How old are you? Surely you do not need more time passing marks.
In severe cases, consulting a dermatologist would be best assist in the treatment of adult acne. The dermatologist may prescribe an antibiotic, a derivative of vitamin A as Isotretinoin or other available acne medication. More women can be afflicted with adult acne than men. Pregnancy is another story if you are prescribed anti-acnes, especially isotretinoin.
Proper care of the skin may not guarantee an impeccable complexion. But a good skin care regimen can help prevent bacteria that worsen adult acne. If you like to scrub by your squeaky-clean feel, think twice. It can do more damage to your already-blemished skin.
Another suggestion especially for women: use non-comedogenic products. Non-comedogenic basically means anything that does not clog pores or cause acne. Do your homework and look for as many non-comedogenic versions of the skin care products you use. It’s worth it, you’ll see.
If stress is linked to adult acne, then, getting rid of stressful activities could work wonders, right? A day off from work or catching up on one of your hobbies will not hurt.
There is this audacious Jean Kerr reacting on a classic date.
“I’m tired of all this nonsense about the beauty only of the skin, that’s deep enough, what do you want, an adorable pancreas?”
It does not mean depreciation of a pleasant personality. Such a reaction only imparts a message of giving value to what drives their self-esteem. If it is a clear complexion, along with its aging gracefully, so be it. No adult acne should put a shame on your face and get on your way to become more confident.
