Do you have more acne now than when you were a teen?

I am 42 and I have acne and sometimes it is worse than others. Right now for example! But I contribute hot humid weather as a factor. But really, it is worse now than I ever remember it being when I was a teen. Actually, I don't really remember having to many problems with acne at all when I was younger.

  • Stress is a major cause of acne in adults. My teenager and I use Niapads - nicotinamide acne pads. Nicotinamide is also known as Vit B3 and scientists at NY college of medicine have shown it to be more effective than antibiotics such as Clindamycin in dealing with acne. Niapads also has Lavender oil that moisturizes and smells great. We love the fact that it is a one step process and takes just two minutes to use. Visit their website for tips on reducing acne.

  • I didn't get acne until after I graduated from high school, and it never went away lol. At least people used to complement me in high school for having a clear complexion lol.

  • I have adult acne. It's been worse since I had my son. I blame hormones and hot, muggy weather.

  • When I was a teenager I would get one big pimple beside my nose (attractive, right) during my menstral cycle. On a rare occassion I'd get tiny bumps along my chin, maybe once a year. That was it though. Now that I've had three kids in three years (Soon. Due in Feb) I have acne almost all the time. On my nose and chin. Luckily they're small, but still ugly.
