Adult acne

Adult Acne

Adult acne is a thing. You are not alone if you are still fighting spots. 64% of adults suffer from acne in their 20’s and 43% in their 30’s. It is even possible to get acne for the first time as an adult. In the same way that men bald in a certain pattern, adult onset acne tends to affect the lower third of the face with red angry bumps and painful pus-filled pimples along the jawline, chin and neck. The hair follicles and oil-producing glands in this area are more sensitive to hormones sending oil production into overdrive. Sound familiar?
