WHAT CAUSES ADULT ACNE?

      For most people who suffer from acne, they get to blame their family.  It is an inherited tendency of the pores to clog up with dead skin cells too quickly which causes a cascade of acne-forming events to happen.  So, some people, never “grow out” of their acne until much older.  Other people don’t have acne in their teenage years, but start breaking out in their twenties and/or thirties. Why their acne laid “dormant” for their teenage years is a mystery, but as adults, many things can contribute to the onset of acne problems, including - 

Hormonal fluctuations and other culprits caused by:

  • birth control

  • pregnancy

  • premenstrual syndrome

  • medications, and

  • menopause

  • Medical conditions like PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) or thyroid disorder can wreak havoc with the skin.

  • Medications for bipolar disorder like lithium, thyroid medications, anticonvulsant medications, lo-dose birth control pills, corticosteroids, sobriety drugs, etc, can also cause acne.

  • Pore-clogging makeup, skin care and hair care can be a culprit in adult acne.  Even if a product says “non pore-clogging” or “noncomedogenic” on the label you cannot trust it.  I have seen scores of products claiming this and look at the ingredient deck to see pore-cloggers.

  • Smoking can be a culprit when it comes to acne. According to German researchers from Technical University of Munich, report the results of a study which found that smoking is a clinically important contributory factor to acne prevalence and severity.
