We’ve all struggled with breakouts, but many of us believe that once we get into our 20’s those days are behind us. However adult acne can be a serious problem for many people even those who have never suffered with acne as a teenager. Acne is caused by fluctuation in a person’s hormone levels that result in overproduction of oil in the skin. When we breakout we often ask ourselves if that sugar overload is to blame, or if we’ve been a bit stressed out lately. This is because we understand that certain things can lead to breakouts. Factors that exacerbate acne include diet, stress, pollution and incorrect skin care.
There is no simple and quick solution, in order to properly treat acne it is important to have a 360° approach so that you get the best result possible. You must re-evaluate your diet and lifestyle and make sure you have the best health and skin care products to effectively treat you and your skin. The acne development cycle is 3 months so to get the best results you have to be committed. Tracey Beeby, Global Education Ambassador from Ultraceuticals, is here to tell us all about the causes of adult acne and the best way for us to treat it.
