Adult acne: I have acne at 30 – QUINQUE | Antiinflammatory SKINCARE

Why do I have acne at 30?

Believe it or not, it's way (too) more common than it seems.
Many adults suffer from acne, and adult women are much more likely to suffer from it (between 11 and 12% of the population).

Although we may think we are mature, adult acne has just as great a psychological impact and influence on self-confidence as adolescent acne.

The most common skin problem.

Who has not suffered, to a greater or lesser degree, from the pangs of acne?
The fact that it is so common, and that it is not often given the importance it deserves, makes it the skin condition with which large stupid things are done. Touch lesions, pierce pimples, remove blackheads... does that speak to you?

But, what is acne?

Acne is a pathology, yes you read that right, of the skin that affects the sebaceous gland and the hair follicle. It usually appears in adolescence, and becomes increasingly common in adulthood as well.
The root cause of acne is overactivity of the sebaceous gland and subsequent occlusion of the follicle. In other words, the skin produces more sebum than necessary and the pore becomes clogged, forming the characteristic acne lesions: pimples and blackheads.

Of course, this is usually accompanied by inflammation and irritation, as well as bacterial overgrowth.

Where does this unwanted pimple come from?

Well, from the age of 30, the origin of these pimples is very diffuse. The main causes are usually:

  • Hormonal changes: menstruation, pregnancy, and yes, menopause too.
  • The stress : enemy number 1 of the skin. Stress increases the production of cortisol and androgens, hormones that directly influence the appearance of blemishes.
  • Food: A diet rich in dairy products, especially skimmed milk and sugars, promotes the appearance of acne in adulthood.
  • Pollution : Small pollutants have the ability to penetrate the protective barrier of the skin, altering its composition and stimulating the production of compensatory sebum.
  • Occlusive cosmetics: If you choose your cosmetics badly when you have normal skin, it's a mistake. But if you choose them wrong when you have adult acne, it's fatal. Many cosmetic products clog the pores, preventing the skin from breathing, and promoting the appearance of the characteristic lesions of acne.
  • Aggressive cosmetics: Yes, aggressive cosmetics exist. And we love it, but well used. When we overuse acids, retinol... and exfoliate the skin too much, we destroy its natural barrier. The hydrolipidic barrier of the skin is its protective barrier and when we attack it, our skin begins to produce compensating sebum to defend itself. It is therefore more vulnerable to the appearance of pimples and lesions characteristic of adult acne.
