Quite a Few a List Celebrities Have Suffered From Acne So You're Not Alone

Mostly it seems that Acne appears in young people between the ages of 10 and 13 and can be expected to go away again after 5 or 10 years. Acne Vulgaris is the correct medical term for this adolescent type of Acne.

Unfortunately some people will be stuck with the condition through their 20's and perhaps even their 30's. Don't panic though, there are many things you can do to get to grips with sorting the problem out and improving your skin.

Acne was usually regarded as something which affected young people, but the number of women [not so many men] getting acne when they are adults is increasing. This can come to people who have never had a pimple in their lives before.

The cause of adult Acne seems to be related, especially in women to hormonal activity. The skin blemishes most often appear on the lower part of a woman's face. It has been noted that the Acne is linked to the female menstrual cycle and perhaps pregnancy, also when starting or stopping taking birth control pills.

You may be doubly unlucky and have been a teenage sufferer with Acne Vulgaris and then started with adult Acne, but as I said before, don't panic! Your life is not over.

Many of the stars of stage, screen and TV have suffered this same condition. For instance, Cameron Diaz, Jessica Simpson, Alicia Keyes, Tommy Lee Jones and even Richard Burton, so you see, life goes on in spite of Acne.

You are very fortunate to be living now because there are many great treatments available to you. I would stress though that there are no miracle cures that I know of, in fact there really aren't any cures at all,but there are plenty of treatments to help you manage it though.

The main goal of Acne treatments is to prevent scarring so that you can look the best you can. Acne more or less sorts itself out in time and heals but you can learn of ways to make yourself look good while this is happening.
