Are you still experiencing acne as an adult? If so, it can be a frustrating experience especially when you have tried different skin care and cosmetic products in Texas to treat acne. In some cases, acne may be caused by other factors you may not be aware of. Here, we take a look at a few surprising causes of acne in adults:
- Skin and Hair Products
Unfortunately, not all hair and skin care products are created equal. If you are using bleaching creams or toners, read the label to make sure they won’t stimulate excess oil and clog pores. Meanwhile, hairstyling products can also seep oil into the forehead and cheeks causing acne.
- Skipping Laundry Day
Not washing your pillowcase and bed sheets regularly can cause breakouts on the body and face. However, be sure not to use harsh detergents as they may contain chemicals that cause skin irritation. It’s best to go for less chemically-intense detergents.
- Unmanaged Stress
When stress is left unmanaged, the level of acne-causing hormones called androgen increases. This stimulates the oil glands and hair follicles which can contribute to acne breakouts.
- An Underlying Condition
At times, adult acne can be caused by an undiagnosed medical condition. In women, this is usually caused by Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a hormonal disorder that increases sebum and skin cell production leading to acne breakouts.
