Acne with aged skin

Acne is general for any age group. It blossoms from the age of puberty and lasts for years as the skin ages. During the adolescent period, most teens experience adult acne caused by hormonal imbalance. Adult acne even shows on ageing skin that offers inevitable pain. 

What is hormonal acne? And what are the signs of hormonal acne?

Hormonal acne is acne formed due to hormone imbalances in the body. This hormonal acne is widely seen in adults, which is also called adult acne. Most women face hormonal acne at the age of 20 to 30, during or before their menstrual cycle, which may occur due to menopause. 

Hormonal fluctuations tend to promote the budding of adult acne in adults in the T-zone, that is, the forehead, nose, the bottom of the cheeks, jawline, and chin. It often takes shape in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples on cysts and head portions.

Adult acne typically forms cysts deep down the skin as bumps that induce extreme pain. That is caused by skin inflammation, sebum (oil) production in skin cells, blocked hair follicles, and Propionibacterium (acne-causing bacteria). 

Treat hormonal acne at an early stage by following the below-described steps carefully.

  1. Clean and then clear.

Double cleansing the skin regularly is the first thing to do. Good oils will be generated on the face by cleansing the face every two hours or an hour will remove the dirt, tiny microbial pollutants, and bacteria from the face, thereby making the face fresh and clean. 

     2.Safer skin with a pH-friendly face wash:

Do you know that most face washes have a pH range of 9–11, which is incompatible with skin? Our faces have a pH of 5.5. Using face washes that have a pH of 9 gives rise to skin irritation, redness, and dryness. So a face wash of pH 5–5.6 is acceptable for acne-prone skin that makes skin cells hop!

  1. Render MOISTURE on the face by choosing the perfect hydrator: 

Ageing skin and mature skin that possesses hormonal acne need hydration first. The use of exfoliators causes skin sensitivity and dryness, so to wrap things up, the use of hydration, like hydrating toners and serums, is essential. These moisture-locking serums and toners calm the acne pore cells, yielding a fresh and clean face.

  1. Ceramides as skin barriers

Ageing skin lacks moisture and leads to cell damage. Inadequacy of ceramides in skin cells leads to dryness, redness, and breakage of cells, so to protect the skin cells from adult acne, ceramide moisturisers are needed!
