Skin Concerns - Acne Prone & Oily
If you suffer from regular skin breakouts or are living with active acne, dealing with your skin on the daily can be extremely frustrating. Although it can feel like you're the only person on the planet without a clear complexion, Acne is the most common skin condition in the world and in Australian’s affects 85% of 15-24 year olds.
But waving your teenage years bye-bye doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll never get a break out again… ‘adult acne’ is a real issue and, due to hormonal influences, typically affects more women than men.
Although it’s understandable that having breakouts, oiliness, or acne can get you down, try not to stress. Stress triggers your body to release cortisol, a glucocorticoid hormone that at prolonged, elevated levels causes your skin’s sebaceous glands to produce more sebum.
The good news is that there are actually many effective treatments that can help you manage and control your acne prone and oily skin; the main thing to note is that you may need to address the issue from multiple angles and come to terms with the fact that it will most likely need regular and consistent attention for best results.
