A common misconception is that acne is a condition unique to teens and people in their 20s. Adult onset acne, however, can develop in the 30s, 40s, and even 50s. Seen mostly in adult women, it’s sometimes triggered by hormonal changes (menses, pregnancy, menopause), medications, (e.g. anticonvulsants, corticosteroids, certain birth control pills), oil containing skin and hair care products, underlying medical conditions, and stress. Often, a clear cause isn’t evident. Fortunately, many treatments options are available.
