Until what age acne can play extra time?

Hormones of puberty generate the majority of acne in adolescents. The pimples usually occur at the age of 12 years for girls and 13 for boys, which correspond to puberty. However, it can sometimes occur earlier, especially among girls from 8-9 years.

Most often, it is women who keep the acne beyond 30 years, with outbreaks in the premenstrual period (a few days before the arrival of the rules). A also know that some women have acne between 25 and 40 years, without necessarily having previously during their adolescence.

Finally, unlike teens, adults do not necessarily have oily skin, but rather sensitive skin, resulting in few comedones (black buttons of acne), but small buttons and deep inflammatory, often located on the lower face (chin, around the mouth …).

As with the sun, it promotes the formation of pimples under the skin, which more or less easily percent.


Obviously, the sebaceous glands are sensitive to molecules secreted in times of stress: Half acne breakouts occur during times of stress.

It is likely that stress increases the secretion of sebum, which accumulates, promoting bacterial growth and inflammation.
