I Am an Adult-So Why Do I Have Acne?

Adult acne is usually the result of a hormonal imbalance, and how those hormones influence your body, especially your skin’s sebaceous glands that are responsible for producing sebum, the oily substance that should hydrate and moisturize the skin. However, when too much sebum is produced skin becomes oily and when combined with dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and dirt creates an inviting base for bacteria can grow in the pores, possibly leading to breakouts.

What You Should Know About Adult Acne

Adult acne is generally classified as two different types – chronic and late-onset. Some people fight acne since high school, but did you know some adult acne can form later in life, affecting those who may never have had problem skin? Chronic adult acne starts during adolescence and continues when you are an adult Late-onset acne occurs in mid or late twenties or even thirties and forties and is clearly caused by hormonal imbalance/ This imbalance may be related to menstruation, OCC, child bearing, different hormonal diseases like polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, ovarian cysts , peri-menopause etc in women, as well as diet, some medications (testosterone and some anti- depressants are the examples), stress or even environmental factors – in both men and women.

 If you have acne, you’re probably all-too familiar with those pesky, sometimes painful, red or white bumps that appear on the skin, usually the face, chest or back. Because our main objective is to get rid of these swollen blemishes as quickly as possible, many people look at acne symptoms as an affliction, but did you know that breakouts are actually a natural reaction to an external trigger?

What Can I Do to Treat My Adult Acne? 

Acne is actually a skin disease and clearly starts insight of your body so it should also be treated from insight. Obviously, keeping the surface of the skin clean is an important part of any skincare regimen, yet the problem behind acne is not dirty skin but overactive sebaceous glands and too much sebum. AcnEase® specifically inhibits the impact of fluctuating hormone levels on sebaceous gland secretions while not changing hormone levels directly. It works as a buffer between the hormones and the sebaceous glands, thereby modulating the amount of sebum produced. This helps explain why AcnEase® is equally effective in treating both adolescent and adult acne in both men and women.

If you’ve been struggling with adult acne, or have just noticed a breakout on your face for the first time, have hope. AcnEase is formulated to treat all types of acne, from mild to severe (with a 96% user success rate!). 

And there are TWO VERY IMPORTANT things you must remember:

  1. Topical products can help, but won't  stop acne form coming. Because acne starts from within, treating acne is an inside job. In order to truly rid your skin of acne, the two step approach is most recommended. First you target the hormonal imbalance and those overworking sebaceous glands, than you make sure to keep the surface of your skin in tip-top state.. Topical solutions can provide temporary relief, which is why we always suggest an approach of combination therapy for the best results!
  2. Watch out for prescription treatments.  Some acne treatments such as Accutane, retinoids, or antibiotics come with serious harmful side effects, so before you ask your dermatologist for a prescription  do the research and look for solutions that are safe and not only treat existing symptoms but PREVENT new acne from forming.
