A Common Misconception is that Acne Only Affects Teenagers
But more than ever before, adults are suffering with oily and acneic skin conditions.The primary catalyst of adult acne is chronic stress. Balancing personal and professional responsibilities makes this generation of adults the most time-compressed generation in history, which contributes to chronic stress: the constant, continued and heightened level of stress that throws our adrenal glands into overdrive, which in turn can boost sebum production, setting the stage for acne development.
Adult acne can also be aggravated by internal and external factors. Internally, the psychological effects of adult acne can contribute to continued flare-ups and breakouts. When adults are frustrated by the signs of acne on their skin, it causes additional emotional stress, which contributes to a continued over-activity of the sebaceous glands and leads to the continued cycle of breakouts. Externally, the need to “pick” or “squeeze” breakouts places even more bacteria on skin.
Where to start? The medibac clearing range works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne without compromising skins integrity, which means skin is clearer and healthier. If you have never tried a product from the Medibac range then maybe starting with a cleanser would be the most beneficial to start off with. The Clearing Skin wash is a foaming cleanser which helps clear oils and breakout causing bacteria on breakout prone skin. Salicylic Acid combines with antiseptic extracts to help stimulate natural exfoliation, clear clogged follicles, cool inflammation and prevent future breakout activity.
