Acne is typically thought of as a teen affliction. This is not the case. Acne affects men and women of all ages, from newborns to people in their 60’s, 70’s, and even 80’s. It is important to understand that there is no difference in the acne itself at any age. Acne is always the result of a sebum blockage deep within skin pores that becomes infected with acne causing bacteria.
With that in mind, adults often view acne differently than teens. It affects life differently than it does for teenagers. One of the biggest issues is the fact that most people don’t understand adults are susceptible to acne. They think it is only affects teens. The stygma of acne being a “teen affliction” can be difficult for some acne suffers to deal with.
Furthermore, there is a broader spectrum of treatments available for people with adult acne. Some drugs like accutane arn’t usually advisable for teens, because it may be unnecessary as they can “grow out” of acne.
And sometimes, there are other medications, like Renova, that are targeted to help adult skin more than teen skin. So, check out the reviews, and
