Here’s something no adult wants to hear…
No matter what age, it seems as though everyone can suffer from breakouts.
As you enter your 20s, 30s, or 40s, there’s nothing more disappointing than realizing your acne didn’t end with your teenage years. But while coming to terms with adult acne is sometimes painful, it’s reassuring to know you’re not the only one dealing with pesky zits and pimples!
However, you know what the most frustrating part is? Getting down to the actual root of the problem and figuring out what the heck is causing your adult acne.
Sometimes it’s just a matter of taking better care of your skin. Things like washing with a high-quality cleanser twice a day and exfoliating on a regular basis might just do the trick… but not always.
After digging into the research, we found out there are more than a few common things that typically cause adult acne. Check this out.
Most Common Causes of Adult Acne
Not only does chronic stress make you want to pull your hair out… but it can also play a big part in adult acne.
According to research, there seems to be a strong link between the hormone cortisol, which is released when your body is under ample amounts of stress, and frequent acne. This is because an influx of cortisol increases sebum (aka oil) production, resulting in clogged pores and more zits popping up.
Have you ever given thought to what the nasty pollution in the air is doing to your skin? All the dust, dirt, and other environmental particles crank up inflammation and sebum production in your skin to spur acne breakouts.
3. Hormonal Fluctuations
You probably already know this, but hormones affect every aspect of your body -- including the skin. A boost in hormones results in a boost in oil production, spurring clogged pores and bacteria to instigate acne.
4. Acne-Causing Products
Not only does using the wrong products stimulate acne in teenagers, it can also play a part in adult acne.
If you’re prone to breakouts or have oily/combination skin, using anything from heavy makeup and moisturizers to crummy hair and body care products can clog pores, promote bacteria growth, and irritate the skin and cause breakouts.
For many, especially adults with sensitive skin, hair and body care products containing harmful sulfates and parabens can irritate their skin, and heavy oils can clog pores, causing pomade acne. This type of acne can pop up anywhere along the forehead, neck, back, chest, and even the scalp!
Unfortunately, many popular hair and body care products lining the shelves are chock full of these harmful ingredients! And they’re not doing you or your skin any favors.
This is exactly why teens and adults have turned to high-quality hair and body care products, such as shampoo, conditioner, and others from TEENOLOGY, that feature all of the good stuff and none of the bad stuff.
TEENOLOGY products are infused with high-quality antioxidants, beneficial natural botanical extracts, and delectable scents… and they leave out all the nasty sulfates, hormone-disrupting parabens, and pore-blocking oils!
