There is a misconception that acne is strictly a teenage problem but actually, the condition can occur at any time, even in adult life. It could be that you’re experiencing a change with your hormone levels or that diet and lifestyle habits are play a role.
I would first look at what you’re eating. There are quite a few food groups that can contribute to an acne outbreak but sugar and dairy are the main offenders here. Try to reduce your intake of these foods and instead focus on getting plenty of fresh fruit and veg into your diet – I speak about the types of foods that are perfect for fighting acne a little more in my article, ‘An Introduction to Diet & Acne.’
It may also be worth considering what product you’re using on your skin as sometimes the harsh chemicals contain in many beauty products can upset or irritate your skin. It might be worth investing in more natural and organic options – Jan de Vries is an excellent website to explore when it comes to cruelty-free, natural cosmetics and skin creams. Here at A.Vogel we also offer an Echinacea Cream that can help to ease inflamed, spot-prone skin.
Finally, as I’ve mentioned, your hormones can play a huge role in the development of acne so it might be worth paying attention to your cycle. Have there been any changes or any new symptoms cropping up recently? If so, your hormones could be fluctuating so you’ll need to address this before your acne clears up.
I hope this information helps. Please let me know if you have any other symptoms.
