What Is Adult Acne?
Adult acne, blemishes, zits, hormonal flare ups, stress break outs . . .
I've heard all these names used, and whatever you want to call it -- It's all acne.
Many people think that problem skin only affects teenagers, and if they wait it out their acne will eventually go away on its own -- but this simply isn't true.
In fact, acne is one of the most common skin diseases, and it affects more than 60 million people in the United States alone.
Acne affects people regardless of age, gender or race. It commonly starts during puberty, but more and more people are breaking out later in life and finding it isn't just a "teenage problem" at all.
Despite the number of people suffering with acne prone skin, only about 11% of them actually seek help. The rest just go it alone hoping to stumble upon a solution.
This is unfortunate, because when acne is left untreated, it can cause physical scars, low self-esteem, and social withdrawal.
