Think you get to be pimple-free after your teen years. The
most breakouts are commonest in teens and
young adults, they will still strike in
your 30s, 40s and even 50s. referred to as adult
onset acne, these breakouts are commonest in
women, especially the ones who are going through menopause, because of your fluctuating hormone levels. The AAD
offers other reasons your pimples could also be returning, including stress, case
history of adult acne, hair and skin products, and medications.
NOT ALL PIMPLES ARE CREATED EQUAL
There are six differing types of acne, and a few are tougher to treat than others. Common whiteheads and blackheads, caused by blocked pores, generally get away with over-the-counter products. Harder to treat: papules (raised, solid bumps) and pustules (papules with pus in them). Worse still are nodules and cysts, which form deep within the skin and may really hurt.
WORKOUTS COULD MAKE BACK ACNE WORSE
Does your back or body ever breakout after exercising? The sweat rubbing and build up against your skin is probably going responsible.
BEING TOO CLEAN CAN BACKFIRE
Do you scrub your skin to urge obviate acne? It seems, zits might not respond well thereto. In fact, excessive cleaning can aggravate skin, which may cause even more pimples.
Contrary to popular belief, acne isn’t usually caused by a unclean face. All the biological activity that results in acne actually begins beneath the skin, so over-scrubbing does nothing but make it worse. Gently wash your skin no quite twice each day with warm water and a light cleanser.
