Causes And Treatment Of Acne In Adults

Acne is more common in adults than is often thought. Even people aged 30, 40 or 50 can still get acne. Acne in adults mainly occurs in women.

Causes of acne in adults

Adult acne, like acne in adolescents, is caused by sebum, an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin. That sebum clogs the skin pores, which attract bacteria and get inflamed.

Acne in adults can be a result of hypersensitivity to androgens, male hormones, but also to a poor balance between male and female hormones. In women, for example, this can happen during the periods, pregnancy or menopause.

Cosmetics and beauty products
If you have acne as an adult, you should definitely take a look at your beauty products. Certain products, especially those based on oil, can block the pores and cause clogging of the follicles.

Certain medications, such as corticosteroids or hormone therapy, can cause acne in adults.

Acne can be a symptom of certain conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome or adrenogenital syndrome.

Treatment of acne in adults

Treatment of acne in adults is difficult. Many products are made for the greasy skin of adolescents and are therefore not efficient as a treatment for adults. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for cleaning products specifically for adults.
