Acne in Teens. Adults and all ages!

Updated: Dec 12, 2022

We all know....

As teenagers, almost everyone suffers from acne, but people of all ages can suffer from acne and it doesn't necessarily go away forever once people hit 20, 30, 40, or even 50! Acne can be severe and last for many years. Did you know there are successful acne treatments and programs available to help, no matter what age the person is.

If you have acne in your 20s, acne in your 30s or acne at 40+, acne treatments are available for you. Acne is a tricky problem that many try to manage alone, but knowing how to treat it, even in the most challenging cases can be tough. So if you have acne between eyebrows, acne under armpits, or acne that just won't go away, there's hope with our Acne Revolution Guide and it was created for for all ages and for all genders.

Acne Causes

For many pre-teens, teenagers, men and women, changes in hormone levels can trigger acne. In addition, the hormones may create excess oils that can lead to clogged pores, which sometimes permit bacteria growth. Both of these issues cause acne breakouts. In addition, some medications, certain foods and even stress can cause an acne breakout.

The Acne Breakout

Most people get acne breakouts on their face and back. Some experience acne under the chin and neck. Perspiration can worsen acne breakouts, so many will experience worsening acne breakouts on the back after physical labour, exercising, and in the summer heat. Many people need acne help for their backs even more than they do for their faces.

Tips for Acne

We wish it were as simple as keeping your skin clean and drying out the skin won’t clear acne either and it can make the problem worse. However, while acne is not caused by dirty skin, the best acne home remedy is cleansing your skin and having a healthy skincare routine to help you keep your acne under control, which we can help with. Many soaps and cleansers that are specifically tailored to clearing acne can seem affordable and worked for the person on the TV commercials, but often the drug store products make acne worse and are full of chemicals and nasty ingredients, so they are best left on the shelf or on inside the TV screen and not going home with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, acne is a generically inherited skin condition and is usually seen in one or both of the parents of the person suffering.

Help for Acne Sufferers

Today, there are countless treatments available to manage acne.

There are four skin types: normal, dry, oily, or combination, and various factors that bother people, including pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, cystic acne, and acne scars. There are vastly different acne treatments for those trying to fight the bacteria associated with acne. Some products dry out the skin while others moisturize it. Acne sufferers need a health balance of both and we can help with that. Acne products may reduce the bacteria growth causing acne, but their effectiveness in treating your specific acne depends on your individual skin type and acne. We like to look at getting to acne at the root cause, rather than fixing it with a band aid solution.

It's imperative to determine your skin and acne type before selecting the acne treatment that will work best for you. Then, you can take several steps to clear your acne, regardless of whether you've had it all your life or just started getting blemishes.

Remember that acne treatments don't work overnight, so don't get discouraged. Although the skin is a resilient organ, it is also stubborn and can take longer than you want for results.
