Adult acne is characterized by blackheads and pimple formations around the mouth and chin area. It can be triggered by stress, hormone disorders, unhealthy eating habits, cosmetics and improper skin care.
Blackheads are formed due to clogged pores. The oils and and dead skin cells get trapped in the pores which causes them to clog. The clogged pores causes bacteria to form which can lead to the inflammation of the blackheads, resulting a red bump known as a pimple.
When the pimple gets infected it can form a yellowish liquid which is trapped under the skin. If the pimples are squeezed it can cause permanent scarring. In order to prevent and treat adult acne you need to know how to take proper care of your skin.
