Posh Spice's Acne Battle: How to Handle Adult Acne

Spotted: Victoria Beckham
Almost all kids suffer from acne. But teenagers is not the only group whom affected by acne. Adults suffer with acne too. High-profile celebrity, Posh Spice aka Victoria Beckham suffers from serious adult acne. She was plagued by skin problems since her teenage years. In 2007, she was pictured by the paparazzi with an incredibly spotty forehead.

What is the causes of adult acne? Hormonal imbalance likely the cause of both teen and adult acne. Women may experience acne during pregnancy or after discontinuing use of birth control pill.

Acne is also stress-related. When you’re stressed out, your adrenal glands secrete androgen which enlarges the oil glands and stimulates excess sebum production. Your pores get clogged and you end up with pimples.

Despite of many myths, chocolate, caffeine, or eating junk food like french fries and greasy pizza are not statistically related to causing acne based on overall studies. However unhealthy lifestyle, diet and cosmetic may lead to adult acne.

Adult acne treatment and skincare solution
Adapt a healthy lifestyle. Avoid eating too much meat, sugar and processed food, instead include more vegetables, fresh fruits and whole grains in your meals. At the same time, take up some form of exercise to sweat out the toxin and cut down on smoking, caffeine and alcohol.

Over scrubbing can irritate the skin and dry it out excessively, stimulating the sebaceous glands to react. Avoid overly harsh skin care solutions. Benzoyl peroxide makes an effective treatment for mild to moderate acne. I recommend Proactiv Solution. My sister using this and I can see her complexion improve within 3 months of use. However, each person will respond differently to skin care products. So, if you haven't find the one that suit you yet, don't be discouraged, take time to evaluate the various options.

Keep your hands away from your face as much as possible. Resting your chin on your hands or rubbing your nose can encourage the growth of bacteria and cause breakouts. Picking at pimples can drive bacteria deeper into the skin, potentially increasing inflammation and scarring.

Keep stress level under control. Cortisol, a stress hormone, can stimulate over-production of oil, which mixes with dead skin cells and bacteria to create breakouts. Check the product you use too. Some cosmetic, moisturizers and sunscreens can clog pores and create breakouts. Even the one which claim for oily skin.

Nothing we can do about hormonal changes which cause acne, but we can take a hygienic approach to avoid it become worst. The latest news, Victoria Beckham is pregnant with her fourth child. This fourth pregnancy has helped get rid of her acne.

Victoria has tried everything under the sun for her skin, yet nothing has worked as well as getting pregnant with her fourth baby. "The hormones really suit her and she's said this pregnancy has cleared up her spots," said a source. The texture of her skin is much smoother and any open pores seem to have closed up. "She's been drinking lots of water and eating fruit like kiwis and strawberries", the sources added.
