Acne in your 30s or older is usually caused by hormones, which can continue to fluctuate for many years past adolescence. If you have acne as an adult, one of the best things you can do for yourself is take a relaxing day trip to the Spa at Spring Ridge to soothe your irritated skin, erase your blemishes, and restore a clear complexion.

Why Adults Get Acne

Adult acne is usually caused by hormone fluctuations. Adult women are more likely to have acne than men because their hormone levels tend to fluctuate more dramatically. Some women develop acne alongside their menstrual cycle and find that blemishes appear a few days before their period on a regular basis. Women may also find that acne worsens during pregnancy or menopause. In addition to hormones, other causes of adult acne include stress, poor diet, hereditary factors, medications, makeup, and poor skin care habits.

Dealing With Adult Acne

Hormonal acne is usually characterized by deeper acne cysts that tend to scar. Some affected adults may turn to harsh, drying cleansers to treat their condition, but over-the-counter scrubs are usually a poor choice for acne treatment. It is best to use gentle cleansers, avoid excess sun exposure, minimize contact to the affected areas, use oil-free and noncomedogenic makeup, and regularly wash all makeup brushes and applicators. Sometimes hormone treatments and at-home acne medications can help manage adult acne.
