Is Your Skin Holding You Back?

Acne is typically associated with teenagers. However, it is common to find adults in their 20s, 30s, and 40s suffering from breakouts. This is skin condition also known as Adult Acne.

In a recent report by the Straits Times1 it has been estimated that up to 50 per cent of women maybe affected by acne at some point in their adult lives. 

Adult acne tends to be very persistent as it could be caused by stress and fluctuating hormone levels. In the report, senior consultant dermatologist Dr Tan Hiok Hee stated that women often experience these hormonal changes around their periods and after stopping birth control pills. 

Although there are oral medications in the market which help combat adult acne, there could be possible side effects. Other factors such as plans for pregnancy and the existence of other medical conditions must also be taken into consideration.

Professional Facial treatments would be a good alternative to oral medication to combat acne. Carragheen offers a wide range of facial treatments that help combat such skin issues.
