Middle aged and suffering from acne

Posted Jun 12 2009 6:43pm 2 Comments

Acne is largely, and wrongly, associated with being a teenager, and yes most teens do suffer from breakouts when they’re growing up. But when you’re in your mid thirties, even fourties, and still suffering from acne, it  can really take its toll and get people down.

If you are one of these people, you’re probably thinking, ‘why me?’, ‘i’m too old for this’ or ‘why doesn’t it just go away?’… the truth is, acne can strike at any time and there are many myths surrounding the subject that are simply not true, such as poor diet and bad hygiene, as well as the common thought that it’s just for teenagers. Largely it’s due to a hormone imbalance.  

Read Dr Trisha McNair’s advice from the BBC website, in response to a 33 year old woman suffering from this very problem. There are all sorts of treatments available for all ages, including prescription topical creams, the oral contraceptive pill and other oral medications designed specifically to target acne. There are also alternative treatments which can help, such as intense pulsed light therapy, which can have dramatic results and has been a huge hit with SkinGenesis clients.

thanks for sharing some of the good ideas and information about acne light treatment.
No problem, it's amazing how many people think acne treatment stops at creams, lotions and anti-biotics - we want to let everyone know that there's a whole world of treatments out there, you just have to find out which one works the best for you!
