Acne isn’t just for teens

Acne is a condition of the skin that shows up as different types of bumps. These bumps can be blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, or cysts. Teens get acne because of the hormonal changes that come with puberty.  But unfortunately acne doesn’t just stop during puberty. Many adults suffer from acne, especially women. It doesn’t mean that your adolescence is back to get you. It just means you have a common form of acne that frequently plagues adults.

Is there any difference between me getting acne in my 20’s and getting it in my teens?

Unfortunately yes the biggest problem with adult acne is the skin doesn’t renew itself as fast as it did when you were a teenager. This means blemishes take longer to heal. It also means gentler treatments are needed to prevent inflammation or skin irritation.

So what could be causing the Adult Acne

  1. Hormonal Changes Whenever your body experiences a spike in "male" hormones such as testosterone, oil production increases—and that can cause a clogged pore where P. acnes bacteria grows, leading to inflammation and pimples.
  2. Your Diet Greasy food doesn't cause a greasy face, but the items listed below may exacerbate an already-brewing condition.
  3. Simple Carbohydrates and SugarAny food that leads to a spike in your blood sugar (such as pasta, bread, and sweets) can trigger skin's inflammatory response and provoke a breakout, according to Linda K. Franks, MD, a dermatologist in New York City.
  4. Dairy: Several studies have shown a link between dairy products and pimples, perhaps because of the hormones that are present in these foods. Buying organic can help: Traditional dairy products can come from hormone-fed animals, so they often have more hormones than their organic counterparts.
  5. ChocolateA small study presented at the February 2011 meeting of the Academy of Dermatology found a correlation between the amount of chocolate that participants consumed (only men were studied, so as to minimize the role of hormonal influence) and the number of acne lesions they developed.
