Understanding Adult Acne: Causes and Solutions
Adult acne can be an overwhelming experience. The scars, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation are not merely skin-deep; they echo into a person’s self-esteem and confidence. While many have tried a plethora of treatments, few have found solace. Among the beacons of hope stands Obagi’s CLENZIDerm M.D., which has offered a fresh start to countless individuals.
The Emotional Strain of Adult Acne
One of the most challenging aspects of adult acne is its unexpected arrival. Many associate acne with teenage years, making its persistence or onset in adulthood even more distressing. Arianne, an Obagi CLENZIDerm M.D. patient, recalls her pre-Obagi days: “My skin was tumultuous, with good days overshadowed by many bad ones. The urge to avoid mirrors, to skip social outings, and even to hide from oneself was overpowering.”
Why Is Adult Acne So Prevalent?
Contrary to popular belief, acne doesn’t just plague teenagers. A staggering 20% of American adults are currently waging wars against recurring breakouts. If you’re thinking, “Why now?” or “I’m past this phase,” you’re part of a significant and growing demographic grappling with this skin condition.
Underlying Triggers of Adult Acne
Dr. Laurence Dryer, Obagi’s Chief Scientist, shines a light on the three pivotal culprits behind adult acne:
1. Overzealous Oil Production: Your skin’s sebaceous glands sometimes overcompensate, producing more oil than necessary, leading to blockages.
2. Unwelcome Bacterial Guests: Excess oil can create a fertile environment for bacteria, which can lead to breakouts.
3. Inflamed Skin: Whether due to external irritants or internal factors, inflammation exacerbates acne issues.
Finding the Right Acne Solution
Addressing acne isn’t about superficial fixes. It demands an understanding of its root causes and a tailored approach to treatment.
