Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredRather than occurring in the teen years, and fading in the 20s, adult onset acne begins for people after they have fully reached adulthood. It can be caused by many factors including environmental factors, hormonal changes, and other medical conditions.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
First, understand that adult acne is common and its causes are multifaceted. Not having zits as a teen doesn’t confer lifelong protection. Hormones rise and fall, with pregnancy, during the various phases of menopause, and that’s just one factor that can bring on acne. As women, we tend to take responsibility for everything. We think we cause our own stress, that it’s up to us to deal with it, and, if we don’t, it’s our own fault. Same with acne: We think we’re doing something to cause it. Not likely. Instead, focus on doing something to cure it and prevent it. Much smarter.
