Just when you thought your “bad skin” days were over, adult acne strikes. Adult acne can be very persistent and difficult to treat, sometime crop up in the same place each month.
The exact cause of acne is not known, but hormones called androgens can play a role. Androgens increase in both boys and girls during puberty. Androgens make the skin’s oil glands get larger and make more sebum. Androgens also can increase because of hormonal changes related to pregnancy or starting or stopping birth control pills.
Genetics may also matter. If your parents had acne, you may have inherited that tendency. Some medications also can cause acne. Cosmetics that have a greasy consistency may also clog pores. Water-based products are less likely to cause acne than oil-based makeup.
Fight back with adult-strength treatment :
1. Fine-tune your diet
Each time you have a pimple, look back two days, see what you ate and try eliminating the suspect foods. Create a food diary if necessary.
2. Detox your skin
If you have mild-to-moderate breakouts, stop all your troubleshooting products and wait a few days to see if your skin calms down. Then you can add products back slowly, one at a time over a couple of weeks.
3. Don’t squeeze or pick blemishes
Popping pimples can drive acne bacteria deeper into the skin. Picking can lead to more inflammation and permanent scarring.
4. Moisturize regularly
