You're an adult and you wonder how you can possibly be getting breakouts? Acne can occur in your teens or wait until your 30's or 40's to appear.
What Causes Acne
Acne is a skin condition that usually occurs on the face, chest or back. It is caused by a combination of factors: overactive sebaceous glands increase oil production and then pores become plugged by the oil and finally, bacteria become trapped. Hormones and heredity and stress are the main factors.
The Effects of Acne
Pimples, pustules blackheads and whiteheads appear and your skin may become inflamed or irritated. If left untreated there may be acne scaring.
Although the sun doesn't cause acne, it does aggravate the condition. The sun dries out your skin resulting in a clearer complexion for a short period of time. However the drying effects of the sun stimulate your sebaceous glands and increase oil production. Acne returns and is usually more severe.
