Three out of five adults experience adult acne.
There is nothing more frustrating than reaching adulthood and suddenly having to deal with acne breakouts.
What is adult acne?
Adult acne is similar to regular teenage acne in that hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders. Women may experience breakouts during their menstrual cycle.
There are many factors that can cause adult acne such as: hormones, diet, skin care products, stress, and medications. All or just one may trigger adult acne.
Is there any solution to adult acne?
Top priority is a proper skin care regime. This includes chemical peels to combat existing active adult acne and future breakouts.
Chemical peels that contain salicylic acid, glycolic or alpha-hydroxy acid can unclog hair follicles and remove trapped dead cells from skin and target adult acne. Chemical peels can be done every 3-6 weeks depending on the strength of the peel. Chemical peels help to exfoliate and trigger new skin growth resulting in improved skin texture.
Skin care products that prolong the results of a chemical peel are essential at keeping adult acne at bay. Gentle exfoliators such as Lasting Looks Clinic “Daily Clarifying Lotion” are gentle enough to not agitate the skin but are effective in removing the outer layers of dead skin cells.
