Ever Wondered What Causes Adult Acne? Find Out The Main Reasons & What Can You Do About It

Acne is quite a stubborn inflammatory skin problem, that affects a large number of people at some point in their lives. While it is often linked with puberty, it can also affect adults, for a list of reasons. In some, it is mild and is barely even noticeable but in others, it can be quite prominent with bumps and redness spreading over the face and sometimes other parts of the body such as chest and the back.

In mild cases of acne, people may experience small pustules, blackheads, and whiteheads. Whereas, when the acne is severe, it consists of deep cysts, redness, extreme inflammation and irritation.
