A perfect complexion and clear skin are at the top of the majority of peoples list of desires. Acne is one of the most common skin complaints we see at our London Skin Clinic and our patients have long since left the school corridors meaning they are usually suffering from what is known as ‘adult acne’.
For some, they may not have experienced acne at all in their youth and it is more of a recent occurrence but for others, they may have always suffered with it and are simply fed up of dealing with what feels like an adolescent problem in their 30s.
There is no clear reason why one person may be prone to acne over another and the exact cause of acne is still unknown but what we do know is that hormones or menopausal changes can play a big part in contributing to adult acne.
80% of adult acne occurs in women and this is due to things like the monthly cycle, pregnancy, and polycystic ovary syndrome are all known to increase sebum production and contribute towards the risk of adult acne. Of course, this does not mean that men are immune from acne and they can still experience excess sebum production which is instead usually linked to genetics which can make men in their 20s and 30s particularly susceptible to spots or cysts.
There are a whole range of acne ‘cures’ and treatments available from face masks and cleansing washes to sudocrem and toothpaste but finding the perfect treatment to suit you and your skin, you often need a little bit of specialist advice which you will be able to find at our specialist skin clinics across the UK.
