Adult Acne

Acne is not just a teenage disease. It also affects adults in great numbers, and has many of the same negative effects on life no matter what age. Around 30% of women and 20% of men over the age of 20 suffer with acne. Thankfully, as you age, your chance of having acne decreases, and the severity of your acne will also most likely decrease. For instance, while about 1/2 of people in their 20s experience acne to some degree, this number plummets to about 10% by the fifth decade of life.

Adult acne develops and is treated in the same way as adolescent acne, and can be kept under control with a proper skincare regimen
