Acne is a skin condition we all hope we don't have to endeavour, however some of us do have to experience this. It can be frustrating and can leave you with low confidence, and all you want is for it to go. We all assume that acne only effects teenagers going through puberty, however this assumption is incorrect anybody of any age can get it, teenagers, adults, even pregnant woman. If you get acne as an adult you may feel it will never go away. When some people get it, it can last for years, sometimes from their teenage years right through to adulthood, which will leave you feeling really frustrated.
Acne is caused by a hormonal imbalance, which is why teenagers are more common to have it, and this could be one of the more likely reasons to why you may suffer from it. If you are an adult experiencing acne you should go to your doctor and ask them to check your hormonal levels, if you are in your thirties and up your hormones should be settled by now, so get your doctor to give you a test.
Despite what people suggest causes acne, poor hygiene is not one of them, people will assume that if you have bad skin that this can be the only reason to why you have it, this can make the experience harder for teenagers through school. There are more simple reasoning to why you may suffer from acne, for instants if you touch your face a lot, this is because you use your hands for everything, so imagine the amount of bacteria your hands pick up before you touch your face. Products can also cause your skin to have acne, such as make up, try not to use to much and if it causes an irritation you should change to a different brand. Soap, cream and shower gels can also give a reaction to your skin, if you see your acne worsen when using a certain product, you should stop using it straight away. You should use products specifiably designed to help prevent acne.
