“I think I’m developing stress acne and it is stressing me out so much which is NOT GOOD.”

More than 90 percent of world population is affected by acne at some point in their life. But knowledge about the condition still varies. There are still several misconceptions and myths about acne and acne treatment that many people still believe to be true.

Myth : Only teenagers get acne.

Fact : Approximately 25% of adult men and 50% of adult women suffer from some form of acne. The causes can range from fluctuating hormones (which can be related to menopause, pregnancy, menstruation or stress), medication or face and hair products. Adult acne, just like any other, can be managed with a proper skin care routine, including daily sun protection, and help from a dermatologist .

However, the reason why acne is so common in teenagers is that our skin is affected by the hormones that are circulating in our bodies. A lot of the changes that occur during adolescence are linked to these hormones, including the changes in our skin. The main culprit when it comes to acne is testosterone.

Fortunately, acne is eminently treatable.
