"Once you become a full-grown adult, there's no need to worry about acne anymore." -- completely false. Many are still under the false pretense that once you've fully matured into an adult, adolescent acne will stop. While that is partly true, but those adolescent acne then evolves into adult ones, and that is a whole different ball game. While you wait until your 20s to find out if the acne may not just stop there, don't be disappointed. It's a common concern faced by many, but definitely manageable if you have the right tools.
"In today's world, chronic stress, hormonal changes, a busy lifestyle and an increasingly polluted environment can lead to more adult acne, congestion and uneven skin tone," says Grace Yap, Regional Education Manager, EIG Dermal Wellness of Dermalogica. "Skin cell turnover rate slows with age, so adults are slower to heal from breakouts than they were when they were teenagers," she added.
