I’m an Adult! Why Do I Have Acne?

To be honest, there is no really definitive answer as to why adult acne affects some people and not others. There are several theories, including:

  • Genetics
  • Medication side effects, such as the Pill
  • Allergic reactions to foodstuffs like wheat or dairy products, or cosmetics
  • Hormones, or changes to hormones like a thyroid issue; pregnancy, a different contraceptive pill, menstrual cycle.

If you had acne as a teen, it’s even more upsetting to suffer from it as an adult. Even those who had clear skin when they were young can suddenly become victim to an onslaught of adult acne, and are left distressed and embarrassed by it.


We live in a very appearance-conscious world, so to have to battle skin breakouts is upsetting, and many people try everything they can to get rid of the problem.


At least one in every five adults suffers from acne, so you’re not alone. Thérapie Clinic are experienced in helping people deal with adult acne, using the best of technology and specially designed products to win the battle of the blemishes.
