If you’re experiencing acne flareups as an adult, it is not something to feel insecure about. In fact, studies showed that nearly 40% to 55% of adults between the ages of 20 and 40 experience low grade persistent acne and oily skin. But what are the exact causes of adult acne; could it be your lifestyle, stress, weather? Let’s find out.
Acne causes and common mistakes to avoid getting spots
Just like teenagers, adult acne stems from excess sebum production and bacteria on the skin. The sebum, when there is a lot of it, can cause the pore to fill up and harden, leading to different forms of acne. This could mean zits, spots, pimples, etc. In addition, hormonal changes can also cause acne. For example, during pregnancy there are many hormonal changes that a person goes through that can give acne to those who have had clear skin their whole lives! Women going through menopause and menstruation also can witness an uprise in pimples during different stages of the cycle.
But apart from what’s happening inside you, what about what’s happening outside of you. For instance, living in a city where there are many cars, buildings, and pollution, it is much easier for dirt to settle on your skin, and the bacteria to feed off it. This can lead to an increase in acne. Another external factor could be work. A heavy workload can lead to stress, which then can cause acne. Stress causes the body chemistry to change, and this means your skin conditions also change. One example of a change would be that your skin could become drier, leading to excess sebum production and hence increase in acne.
So, what exactly can you do to help fix it?
Anti-acne essences and Facial Cleansing are the most important part of the routine for acne removal. As you can imagine, our skin accumulates dust, dirt, pollution, and dead skin cells that sit on the surface of our skin blocking our pores. All these external factors, combined with the makeup we wear and the natural oils we produce, are a recipe for disaster for our skin.
You could go the traditional route and choose a product like Anti-Acne Essences to cleanse the skin for acne removal, or you can use various devices for cleansing, such as blue LED light therapy devices, vibration devices, etc. LED lights can really help address hormonal acne because it helps heal acne while also maintaining and improving your skin’s strength. LED treatment is generally non-invasive and gives little to no pain for users. Most devices come with various settings, so getting a tailored at-home treatment is a very viable option! Another method of cleansing is using sonic vibrations. It is beneficial because the use of heating and cooling paired with sonic vibration can push acne-fighting product into the skin and gain many skin calming benefits.
And even if you’re not one for using devices, choosing the right anti-acne essences goes a long way for acne removal. For example, a good hyaluronic acid can help both moisturize the skin properly and help in the acne-fighting process. But the main takeaway is that your skin needs consistency.
