Adult Acne and It’s Causes

Acne is a common skin condition that is experienced by 50% of women in their life. There are many different causes of adult acne. Some common causes of acne include:

  • oily skin due to overactive oily glands
  • heredity/genetics
  • unbalanced levels of hormones
  • menstruation
  • emotional stress
  • medications
  • consumption of foods with high glycemic loads (white grains found in bread, rice, pasta) and sweets.

In some cases, adult acne can also be a sign of an underlying medical condition. Once the medical condition is diagnosed and treated, the acne often clears.

Acne can be particularly frustrating for adults. Some adults continue to get acne well into the 30’s, 40’s, and even 50’s. A treatment that might have once worked during your teenage years can be useless or make acne worse in adulthood. It is even possible to get acne for the first time as an adult. This type of condition is called adult-onset-acne and is most common amongst women going through menopause.

If you are new to the world of adult acne, then the first steps to take should include:

  • Identifying your Skin type & concerns
  • Finding out if adult acne runs in the family
  • Checking if your acne is triggered during your “time of the month”
  • Identifying if your acne gets worse during times of high emotional stress
  • Ask your doctor if any of your current medications cause acne
  • Examine your current diet, and work out a more healthy diet (remove sugars, high carbs, oily foods)
  • Remove foods from your diet that you have food allergies to (example: dairy)

Finally, if you have acne then you may already know to regularly maintain your skin and keep the surface clean throughout the day. However, with adult acne, using drugstore skincare for acne can lead to more harm then good, as these drugstore products are targeted towards youths with acne. Mainly those with oily & pubescent skin (aka, teenagers).

Here are our best products for treating adult acne while also keeping the skin healthy with mild & gentle anti-aging benefits, for clear & healthy skin.

helpful for skincare. The easily washable texture allows for a mild yet effective cleansing of dirt and makeup without causing any trouble or skin irritations. Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is the best cleanser to maintain skin’s moisture even after cleansing. Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is composed of natural oils extracted from Black bean to control sebum production and soothe the skin. Experience the hypoallergenic formula for sensitive skin.


Get perfectly prepped skin that is silky smooth with the Klairs black sugar facial scrub. This sugar scrub for face contains an abundance of black sugar. Black sugar aids in the removal of dead skin cells and blackheads. It exfoliates away dead skin with ease and leaves the skin glossy and smooth. When the seasons change, the skin tends to become a bit uneven with dry patches. These dry patches can cause applied makeup to appear unevenly and look “caked”. By using the Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Scrub for Face once a week, you can achieve smooth soft skin that is perfect for makeup application.


The last step of pore care is the Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap. Master craftsmen who have been producing soap for more then 20 years made the KLAIRS’s soap series. Delicately selected natural ingredients were matured for enough time at a low temperature. For your benefit, artificial ingredients, such as surfactants, hardener, preservatives or fragrance were not used. Natural glycerin from the production stage is contained within the soap to maximize hydration effects. When lathering the Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap between palms, dense black bubbled are created. The Gentle Black Sugar Charcoal Soap contains pine oil and black sugar for skin soothing and hydration. When used with the Gentle Black series, it is a great daily cleansing experience for oily skin in effectively cleansing the pores and clearing away dead skin cells. Charcoal eliminates dead skin cells and organic Ghassoul from Morocco draws sebum out of the skin. Experience the feeling of purified pores along with a more brightened and even skin tone.
