Non-Controversial Adult Acne Tips

Wash!

After last week’s post about acne, a physician reader sent me this link from the Detroit Free Press about managing adult acne, calling them “reasonable” and “non-controversial.”  Basically, keep the area clean, don’t touch it, and control stress.

    Adult acne is caused by sebum, an oily substance produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands. Sebum clogs pores, which attract bacteria and become inflamed. For some adults, breakouts are a result of hypersensitivity or overproduction of androgens (male hormones). But an imbalance in both male and female hormones (estrogen) can also cause breakouts. For women, this can happen during pregnancy, perimenopause, and menopause. Some medications, such as corticosteroids, and cosmetics can also contribute to the development of acne.
