Acne in adults, discover the possible causes and how to take care of your skin

If you are over 30 years old and have discovered pimples on your face, even if you did not suffer from acne when you were young, do not panic. Tardive acne is common and there are many adults who suffer from it. Days ago, to cite an example, the television presenter Gabriela Pazmiño shared photos and videos of her face on her social networks, after using a product that caused redness on her skin and the appearance of pimples. Among the symptoms that she listed, from the use of a moisturizing cream that she bought at a pharmacy, she mentioned itching, dryness, and pimples.

The skin on her face, she posted, began to improve after the recommendations of her specialist, who prescribed the right products for her skin type.

According to an article published on the Eucerin website, adult acne appears in the same way as adolescent acne, beginning with microcomedones, microscopic precursors to comedones (bearing in mind that a comedone is a blackhead or a skin white spot).

Everyone has microcomedones, but they end up dissolving into skin that isn't prone to blemishes. If your skin is prone to acne, small inflammatory reactions occur. Acne-prone skin produces excess sebum. This sebum cannot be drained out because the pores are clogged and the excretory ducts are blocked.

Comedones (blackheads or whiteheads) appear as a result of this situation and are most often found on the face, neck, chest and back. Acne bacteria begin to work on the blocked sebum, resulting in red, inflamed pimples.

According to the specialist Mariana Mosquera Samán, hormonal imbalance, stress, as well as mediation and the constant use of masks, are other reasons for its appearance.

“First, aesthetic specialists or dermatologists must make a correct recognition and adequate assessments of the patient, because in many cases it is acne and in others it is dermatitis, and the treatment and medication is another, for which it is essential to always see what It is what is happening. We have to remember that to breathe we fulfill two phases: we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. In high doses it is not harmful to health, but having a mask, which practically encloses and does not allow adequate oxygenation of the skin, causes congestion, with which there is an increase in sebum. That is why there is the manifestation of acne. It is not that the mask causes you an allergy, ”indicates the professional.

“Putting on a product and this causing acne is false. That cannot happen. But when you already have acne, then you do have to be very careful when applying the products, because if you use those that have a greasy consistency, very creamy, very oily, then it can happen that the acne picture increases, that outbreaks increase. make it more irritating. That can happen. But that normal skin, due to the use of a product, gives it acne, that is not the case”, maintains the director of the Aesthetic Center Mariana Mosquera.


It is important, she indicates, that before using a product at the facial or body level, the type of skin the user has is identified. "Remember that oily skin should not use products with oily consistency, because this exacerbates the sebaceous gland," she says.

The person must attend an aesthetic center to recognize the type of skin, to recommend creams or serums according to her needs.

In very dry or very sensitive skin, active components that are skin regenerators and intensive moisturizers are recommended.

Also remember to maintain a facial hygiene routine. You should clean your skin well, morning and night. The use of sunscreen is essential. (I)
