Why Do Adults Have Acne

5 posts in this topic

At its root, adult acne is caused by the same things that cause teen acne: excess skin oil and bacteria. Any changes in hormones, including those brought on by pregnancy and menstruation, can trigger excess oil.

Acne tends to run in families, so if a parent had adult acne, you're at higher risk. People can get acne into their 40s and beyond.
