Peach & Lily - What Causes Adult Acne & How to Treat It
While acne is largely a skin issue associated with your teen years, it’s a problem that can linger well into adulthood. If you’re still struggling with acne in your 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond, don’t feel bad – despite the link to puberty and adolescence, it’s very common for acne to persist well into adulthood for many people and it can be easily treated. But what causes adult acne? And how might it be different from what you experienced in your teen years?The answer to what causes adult acne is very similar to what causes acne in adolescence. Generally, the same factors which cause acne in adolescence – clogged or blocked pores, overactive oil glands, inflammation and bacteria – are at play when it comes to acne in adulthood. Additionally, things like stress, hormones, and the menstrual cycle in women can all influence oil production, thus potentially causing an acne breakout, and certain skincare or makeup products which clog pores could be to blame as well. If you’re dealing with acne as an adult your diet could also be a factor. Medication like anabolic steroids, lithium, and corticosteroids can also be the answer to what causes adult acne.
Peach & Lily - Do Pimple Patches Really Work?
Whether you’ve been closely following skincare trends over the past few years or not, you’ve likely heard of the pimple patch. These small, fingertip-sized patches go directly over pimples or blemishes on the skin’s surface, and while they may seem like merely a band-aid that goes over the pimple to cover it up until it heals on its own, the pimple patch actually helps the breakouts heal faster! They work by absorbing the excess fluid with a vacuum-like effect, getting out all the dirt, oil, and other grime that could be causing the breakout. Essentially, the pimple patch makes pimples dry up faster than they would normally.
