Acne is one of the most common and persistent skin conditions. Although it’s most often associated with teenagers and young adults, it can affect anyone at any age, and is becoming increasingly common among women as they approach mid-life.
Why treat Acne?
Acne is so common, many people simply let it run its course. However, this approach is very likely to lead to dark spots and permanent scars. Plus, living with acne can be unnecessarily damaging to your self-esteem because there are plenty of effective treatments available.
If you have acne, you probably hear a lot about the importance of balancing your hormones.
How are hormones involved?
When your hormone levels change due to menstruation, polycystic ovarian syndrome, menopause and increased androgen levels, acne may develop. In teens, this type of acne will show up in the t-zone (the forehead, nose and chin). In adults, it will occur along the lower part of the face, near the cheeks and jawline. In either case, you’ll require an approach that understands the role of hormones and will give you the best chance at a successful treatment.
