A skin disorder that affects both adults and teenagers, acne is more common during puberty but anyone can be affected by it at any stage of their adult life. Acne occurs when skin pores, connected via follicles to oil glands, get blocked by a build-up of oil. This accrual of oil blocks the passageways where a natural liquid known as sebum helps to eliminate dead skin cells, and this blockage underneath the skin causes the formation and growth of pimples.
Most individuals between the ages of 16 and 30 will suffer from acne at some point regardless of gender. However, younger men are more prone to developing acne due to the higher amounts of testosterone in the body, which can worsen the condition.
Retinol peel is recommended for both men and women and is suitable for all ages. It is typically used to remove the top layers of the skin and is done by applying a peeling solution to the skin, which can lead to your skin starting to peel off naturally. This aids in the removal of any dead skin cells on the surface and kill of the inflame acne, which is generally smoother and healthier than previous layers.
Age is a primary factor in your skin tone. Your skin weakens as you get older, affecting the regularity of your melanin production. Hormonal changes can have this same effect as well as exposure to sun. Improper application of sunscreen can lead to more melanin production and uneven skin tone disappears as brown/darken spot on your face.
Lastly, if you’ve experienced damaged skin from acne or scarring, you may have uneven skin tone that is called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
