Acne is often thought as one of the rites of passage of being a teenager — one that, fortunately, you get to grow out of. Yet, acne does not always dissapear once you reach your 20s and beyond.
“Despite the fact that adult acne tends to be generally milder than teenage acne, this common medical condition can have a significant impact on a person’s overall quality of life — regardless of when it occurs,” said dermatologist Julie C. Harper, MD, FAAD, associate professor of dermatology at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.
Dr. Bastomski’s Comments:
Whether it is acne or any other chronic condition, you must make sure you are covering the basics if you are trying to give your body the best chance of healing itself. This would include a proper diet (for most people a paleo type diet is the way to go), limiting intake of toxins such as sugar, chemicals and pesticides, as well as detoxifying to allow your liver, digestive tract and/or kidneys to function better, getting a full nights of sleep and regular exercise.
