ACNE 101



Acne is unpredictable: it may have left you alone as a teenager and then pop up for the first time as an adult. But it can also reappear in your 30s and never leave. In short, adult acne is as confusing as it is common, affecting many women. But how do you take care of adult acne skin on a daily basis?

Specificities of acne-prone skin

Adult acne is more of an inflammatory type (large red pimples with or without a white head) and is mostly located on the chin, jawline and upper neck. If the acne is not treated, these sometimes deep lesions are likely to leave scars.

Another difference with teenage acne is that with age, the skin becomes thinner and produces less sebum. It is most often mixed, i.e. oily on the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and dry everywhere else. It is also more sensitive and reactive. The choice of products for the daily care routine of adult acne-prone skin is therefore important. Especially if you are also being treated by a dermatologist. It is important to know that some acne treatments contribute to dry skin.

Psychological impacts

The other effect of acne in adulthood is a lack of confidence. Women who are concerned about their appearance are particularly affected by the possible correlations with a lack of hygiene and care, for example.

A brake on their personal development but also professional in some cases.
