Help, I am 40 Years Old and I have Acne!

Question: Dear Val, can you help me? I am 40 years old and I just started breaking out! I have never really suffered from acne before so I have no idea why this is happening or what to do? Help!

Answer: Hello my dear.  Do not panic.  First of all you are not alone to have a sudden onset of acne in your 40’s.  Acne can come at almost any time in life for a variety of different reasons.

First and foremost, you really need a skin care consultation to determine the type of acne you have and which areas it is affecting most.  These two things can help a professional determine what may be the cause.

Second, I would ask that you think back over the past few months to see if anything has changed in your life including diet, exercise, bowel movements, vitamins, supplements, or birth control pills.  It may be a new type of food you just started eating that your system does not agree with.  Or if you are not having regular bowel movements, your body may be pushing out toxins through your skin.

If you have recently started, stopped or tried a new birth control pill, your acne may be due to hormonal imbalances. There are many possible reasons.  But I promise you that with the proper time and evaluation, you and your skin care professional can determine the appropriate course of treatment for your acne.
