6. Menopause and hormones
Menopause will cause changes in hormone levels for woman and can be a cause of acne. Women also tend to wear heavy makeup when experience an acne outbreak, which only worsens problem by further clogging pores.
Especially in adults, stress can be another cause of acne. When you are stressed, hormone cortisol is produced.
Cortisol will worsen any acne you already have. To prevent stress-related acne, try relaxation and meditation.
Some adults experience acne from picking at blemishes on their skin. You should never pick at or squeeze a pimple, blackhead or any other blemish on your face.
This can only cause more acne and possibly an infection. When cleaning your face, avoid harsh facial cleansers(they cause creation of more sebum) and scrubbing your face too vigorously.
The sad part is that most of acne products are sold over counter for treatment.
Most over-the-counter acne treatments are topical and come in form of a cream, soap, lotion or gel.
Acne products normally contain benzoyl peroxide (good for killing bacteria and possibly reducing oil production), sulfur (helps eliminate blackheads and whiteheads) and/or salicylic acid (cuts down speed of cell lose).
More severe cases may require prescription acne medicine that is topical or oral.
Oral acne medication can help reduce both growth of bacteria and inflammation of glands.
