You’re in your thirties and you keep asking yourself how in the world you are still getting acne breakouts. Wasn’t that supposed to stop in your late teens? You can take comfort in knowing that you are not alone. Millions of people around the globe are dealing with acne as an adult. Countless Hollywood celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Eva Longoria have openly admitted to struggling with the condition as well.
What Causes Acne?
People typically get acne on their chest, their face and their back. Acne is caused by multiple conditions combined. Some people produce too much oil in their skin. This combines with dirt and bacteria to plug up their pores. Thus, acne is formed.
Hormonal imbalances can affect acne outbreaks. Therefore, teenagers are prone to acne. However, adults who are battling with the same type of hormonal imbalances will have acne outbreaks. Heredity and stress are two other factors that cause acne.
Symptoms of Acne
Everyone knows what acne looks like. Pustules, whiteheads or blackheads will appear on your skin. With time, they get irritated, they become infected, they turn red and they disfigure your face. If acne is not treated, it can result in scarring.
Some wrongly believe that the sun causes acne. This is not true. However, the sun can aggravate acne. This is because sun exposure removes the moisture from your skin. Since your skin is dry, your body tries to compensate by producing more oil. The result is plugged pores and severe acne outbreaks.
The Benefits of the Actinage Acne Peel
The Actinage acne peel is a powerful skin clarifying system. It has provided dramatic results in patients battling acne. It can be used by patients of all skin types who have acne problems.
The Actinage acne peel is so powerful because it combines Salicylic, Mandelic and Azelaic acids with Retinol. The end result is a treatment that has been uniquely designed to repair and revitalize oily and blemish-prone skin.
Some people shy away from a chemical peel because they worry that the peel will damage their skin worse than the acne did. One of their biggest fears is hyperpigmentation. This is another reason to choose the Actinage acne peel. It is effective, but it has a drastically reduced risk of producing hyperpigmentation. As a result, a patient can have this treatment performed multiple times a year for improved skin clarity.
In addition to treating acne, the Actinage acne peel makes your skin look younger. It has been dubbed an anti-aging treatment. You are also provided with a comprehensive treatment routine that you can follow at home. The goal is to extend and expand the benefits of the peel.
