Acne in middle age?

After I passed the age of 30, I found that my acne troubles had gone leaving behind only scars from the teenage years. I thought that acne troubles were only for the young and once you were older, your skin would become smooth again so it's important not to pinch and create ugly scars. However, recently I have been having acne breakouts again. I'm not sure what is the reason. It could be all those nuts I had been eating lately. I do love nuts even though it tends to make me breakout in acne.

It could also be all those new products I had been trying lately. I had won a whole set of facial and beauty products in a contest and was trying them out. Maybe some of them were not suitable for my skin type. If this acne breakout continues, I may need to have anti-aging light therapy/treatment soon. I also noticed that my tween daughter is starting to have some pimples and I may need to find some suitable products for her soon.

In addition to this, I will also need to look at some other anti-aging creams for the areas around my eyes which constantly looks dark and there are some age spots I would like to cover. Usually make-up can cover some of those age spots but I am still looking for a product to lighten if not erase my aging spots. Hopefully someone reading this can recommend some.

  1. Women undergo some hormonal changes in their 30's. May be this is the reason for you Acne

  2. I'm in my 30s and my acne has yet to take a vacation. And those fine lines are creeping up on me now, too. It's no fun having to deal with acne and aging at the same time! I wish I had some advice to give, but I'm trying to figure it all out myself.
