5 facts about adult acne
When you mention acne most people instantly think of hormonal
teenagers standing in front of the bathroom mirror refusing to
go to school because of a pimple on the end of his or her nose.
Acne isn't necessarily like that, though. It's true that Acne
does appear to be a hormonal affliction but it isn't true that
it's only teenagers who can get it. Adult men and women can
suffer from adult acne at any age and it is not uncommon to see
people of 40 suffering quite badly. Adult acne can be just as
serious as teen acne causing depression and social anxiety in
people of all ages and from all backgrounds.
1- Adult acne really is a lot more widespread than you might
imagine. 25% of adult men and up to as many as 50% of adult
women are expected to suffer from adult acne at some point
during their adult lives. It really is a lot more common than
you probably imagine and there is no reason to be ashamed by it.
2- The exact causes of adult acne, like teen acne, remain
unknown. Certainly hormones have a big part to play in people of
any age contracting acne but the exact relation nobody knows.
Because of it's similarity, though, the treatments and
prevention for adult acne are virtually identical to those of
teen acne and are easy to use or follow.
3- Acne, in general, is one of the most common
in the world and it is estimated that 30% of all visits to
dermatologists will be due to acne. However, because the world
looks at acne as a teen problem they fail to realize the mental
anguish that adult sufferers can face. Adult acne can lead to
serious depression and social anxiety as grown men and women
become afraid to go out in public.
4- Scrubbing and scrubbing your pimples will not help. It is
more likely to open up sores that can become easily infected.
These will look a lot worse than any acne pimples and can leave
some quite visible scarring. Cleansing is fine but you should
avoid scratching or picking.
5- There are a large number of natural botanical remedies to
help with adult acne that you may want to consider trying.
Dandelion and Burdock are both proven to help as are Lavender,
Dock Root, Turmeric and Strawberry Leaves. There are many more
natural solutions that are very easy to find and even easier to
incorporate into your daily lives.
