of the most prevailing and potentially disadvantageous myths about
cleaning acne prone skin is a belief that you need to use salicylic acid
or alcohol based products to do it, and in addition, scrape the skin
during vigorous exfoliation.

thrive in clogged pores), and some may even experience a temporary
decrease in pimples, long term effects are certainly not worth it. A few

dry, irritated, prematurely aged, sun sensitive skin, and an actual
increase in inflammation due to skin abrasion.

the American Academy of Dermatology, the unpleasant and sometimes painful skin
breakouts of acne can affect 40 to 50 million Americans. Acne is most common in
teenagers, but it can affect people regardless of age. Hormonal acne is practically acne caused by hormonal
fluctuations. Acne can flare at any time, but people are particularly
susceptible to it during certain phases of life, including, and perhaps most
famously, during puberty and adolescence in general.
The skin on the back is thicker than
anywhere else on the body and contains many sebaceous glands situated just
below the surface of the skin. Sebaceous glands continuously produce and
secrete skin oil (sebum) through the openings (pores) in the skin. When too
much sebum is produced, pores and hair follicles become clogged and together
with dirt and bacteria, you have a recipe for acne.

As a general
rule, women's hormones tend to fluctuate more than men's, which helps explain
why acne in women tends to be less constant and more erratic than acne in men. More
than half of all adult women experience at least occasional breakouts. Approximately
60-70% of women battle with acne experience premenstrual flare-ups. Acne can
occur throughout a woman's adult life: in early adulthood, in the late twenties
and thirties, during pregnancy, and during menopause. While female adult acne
can be frustrating to deal with, it can be prevented and effectively treated.
If you have
adult acne and have fat around the middle i.e.: a large waist line or a big stomach, it could mean that you have a high insulin level — a symptom of pre-diabetes. Patients
who have diabetes and acne often have difficulty getting their acne under control
and in some cases, a bad case of acne can be one of the first visible signs of
developing diabetes. Because the high blood sugar levels found in diabetes also
have been implicated in acne formation, many clinicians are not surprised that
the two could be related.
