Today around 25% of all men and 50% of all women will suffer from some form of adult acne in their adult life. In fact people who are now in the 20's, 30's and 40's are seeking medical advice to treat this skin condition as well as teenagers. Just like teenagers, these adults are also finding it extremely difficult to cope with the problem of acne.

It is hard to believe that this skin condition, which is common in teenagers, is now becoming just as common in adults as well. Although many people are unsure what the true cause of this skin condition there have been plenty of ideas put about. Certainly one cause which seems to be prominent for this condition is hormonal changes that are taking place in the person's body. Therefore, it is important that if you at any stage feel you may have acne you should seek medical advice from you doctor as soon as you possibly can.

Along with hormonal changes in a person's body possibly being the reason why as an adult they have got acne, but there are other reasons for which this has been caused. Below we take a look at a just what some of these are.

1. You may be suffering from this condition because your diet is extremely bad. Look carefully and you may find that you are actually consuming high amounts of fat, sugar and carbohydrates without realizing it. By having a diet that is high in such items means that your body is unable to absorb the nutrients it needs effectively. Along with you suffering from acne you may find you have problems with your digestive system and also in relation to your hormones as well.

But as well as eating foods which have high levels of fat and sugar in them they also prefer to eat a lot of processed (ready prepared and pre-packaged) foods as well. So if you want to ensure that you do not suffer from this skin condition as you grow older it is an idea to make changes to your diet and begins to eat more fresh (organic where possible) foods. Plus increase your water intake to as much as eight glasses each day and this will further help to eliminate unwanted toxins from the body.

2. If you do have a well balanced diet then you may well have adult acne because you have inherited. Unfortunately if not treated swiftly enough this condition can become much more severe and lead to scarring.

3. One other reason as to why you may be suffering from this skin problem is because of the makeup and skin care products that you use and which are synthetically made. The chemicals in these can often cause imbalances in the acid and alkaline in your skin and cause spots to erupt. If you really want to stop the condition becoming any worse or prevent the condition altogether use products that contain only natural ingredients.

In the article we have shown you a few of the reasons as to what may be the cause for your adult acne problem. But just like teenagers you can use the same kinds of products that they do in order to treat the condition. Also along with using these it is advisable to make some changes to your dietary habits and to use only skin products, which contain natural ingredients.
