What is adult acne?

Adult acne is an inflammatory skin disorder that most commonly affects women over the age of 25. This acne usually appears on the U-shaped area of the face, i.e., the chin, neck and area around the mouth, and now, with the constant use of face masks, the cheeks and even the nose have been added. 

Acne can be annoying and painful, so you surely want to get rid of it, but first things first. Let's find out why acne appears in adulthood. 
Why does acne appear in adulthood? Find out at Artepil, Puerto Vallarta. 

Hormonal changes

Hormones influence everything, including how your face looks. So if you notice that you get breakouts every month, it could be due to the onset of your period. 

Pregnancy is another factor causing acne, since hormones change during this period. 


Home work, office work, school exams or anything that causes you stress, can end up in an acne outbreak, and you may wonder, why does this happen; very simple, in response to stress, your body produces a hormone called androgens. 

These hormones stimulate the excessive production of sebum, which added to other factors such as hormones, or pollution can lead to acne outbreaks. 

Reduce stress and practice self-care, you can have a massage once a week at Artepil, spa in Puerto Vallarta or simply do something that makes you feel good, you will have noticeable changes! 

UV rays and pollution

Our skin is constantly exposed to external factors, such as ultraviolet light, dust and pollution, and if there is no proper cleansing, your pores will become full of dead cells and dirt, which can result in the excessive production of oil.  This process can lead to the appearance of new imperfections. 

In addition to cleansing properly every night, and upon waking up, you can help your skin by having a detox facial, which will renew and detoxify your skin with activated charcoal. It will also clarify, purify and hydrate your skin.

Cosmetic masks, masks, mascara, etc., can cause an imbalance in the outer layer of the skin, so a damaged barrier can lead to all sorts of irritation problems, including, yes, acne. Technically, this type of outbreak has a clinical name: mechanical acne.

Mechanical acne comes from friction that causes irritation and clogged pores, so even if you don't suffer from oily complexion, sebum and bacterial growth are produced. 
What you will notice are small, shallow whiteheads instead of deep, painful bumps, which are also influenced by the action of hormones.

To try to avoid this, remember to change your face mask every day, this way you will avoid dirt, also remember to wash your face well at night and of course, have a specialized treatment at Artepil, spa in Puerto Vallarta.
