Adult acne (AKA Good Times) Statistics
Adult acne affects 25% of all adult men and 50% of adult women at some time in their adult lives. These are the official statistics, but I personally don't know many adults who have not had a zit or two in their adult lives. People can develop unpleasant acne or have an acne recurrence in their 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond. It can be difficult to cope with no matter your age, and can cause depression and social anxiety in an adult the same way it can in a teen.
Although the causes of adult acne are unknown, it is thought that adult acne may sometimes have hormonal roots. The appropriate adult pimple treatment may involve getting your hormones in check which requires a trip to your doctor.
Not so uncommonIt is important to realize that adult acne is more common than people may think, and adult sufferers are not alone. If you are troubled by adult onset acne, promptly consult your doctor.
Okay so WHEW!!!!!!! I'm not alone in my adult acne issues. But seriously I'm 39 and still dealing with this ? I'm done with this. They can just go away. Especially the "underground" ones. You know exactly what I'm talking about don't you? If you bump them or hit them just right the tears start in your eyes and you have to lay down for a minute to control yourself.
Do you know how embarrassing it is to be buying Noxema at Wal Mart and it's not for your 12 year old but for you ? No matter how fancy you package the "zit cream" it's still zip creme.......no matter if you order it from Sephora or Acne.com !
