Adult Acne: Simple Steps For Treatment - Articles Surfing
Just because you never experienced acne during your youth, doesn't mean you won't have to face it as an adult. Research shows one out of four adult men and one out of two adult women will experience some type of acne in their adult life.
No one seems to agree on what causes acne in adults, but one thing is clear. Acne is always associated with hormones. These hormones are essential to the development of the oil glands of your skin. Children don't experience acne, because their hormones aren't mature.
Any time your hormones become unbalanced, you run the risk of an acne breakout. Researchers agree that acne is caused by androgens. These are male hormones found in both men and women. These hormones create excess oil. In turn, this excess oil can clog the hair follicles and allow bacteria to grow. When this occurs, acne pimples and blemishes appear.
Women generally experience hormonal acne because of the normal female cycles like menstruation, pregnancy and menopause. This is why some types of birth control pills help control acne by keeping the androgens balanced. However, consult your doctor before considering this treatment. Every one is different. Children">All treatments do not produce the same results for different people.
Many adults have experienced success in clearing their acne by using a simple three-step regimen.
