Article Body:
Acne is often thought of as a teenage dilemma, and while it is true that
acne appears most often during the teenage years, it is arguably just as
true that there are a growing number of individuals that suffer from
adult acne.

Adults in their twenties, all the way up to their fifties can still
experience acne flare-ups. And adult acne can have just as many negative
effects on a person as teenage acne. Possibly even more so, as the
stress of career and family adds to the strain of living with an
unsightly skin problem.

Mental stress can be one of the major causes of acne in adults. It is
not a surprise in the slightest that women are often more likely to
suffer from adult acne than men, as it has been shown that women have
much more stress in their day to day lifestyle, not to mention that they
are prone to hormonal imbalances, especially during times such as their
menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Just as in teens, hormones play an
important factor in the onset and exacerbation of adult acne.

The environmental factors that surround a person, paired with the
individual's lifestyle can also play a huge role in the appearance of
adult acne. An improper diet or behaviors such as smoking and drinking
affect the skin's condition and resistance to acne, as well as other
diseases.

Prevention is the only obvious way to go when dealing with adult acne. A
proper diet, paired with plenty of water and rest is a good start.
Trying to relieve stress and maintaining proper skin care and hygiene can
also help to prevent acne from occurring.

But what about the pimples that you may already have?   There are many
treatments available for people who have adult acne.

Anti-acne medications, certain skin care products, and even laser surgery
are just a few of the many treatments available for acne on the market
today. Visiting a qualified doctor or dermatologist is the only way to
determine how severe your acne really is and to find the proper treament
available for you.
