Most adults expect acne to go away once they are no longer teenagers, but acne can affect people of any age. Almost half of adult women have mild to moderate acne. If you are one of these women, you have probably tried many different creams and lotions that had little to no effect on the bumps on your face. You may have acne during menstruation, especially along the jaw line, cheeks, or on your chin. When your period is finished, the acne usually goes away gradually, only to appear the next month. Women can develop acne at other times of their life, and all of these are related to hormones. Many times, acne develops when women are in their 30s or 40s and start or stop taking birth control pills. This results in a hormonal change in the body.
Clearogen Was Designed by a Dermatologist as an Adult Acne Treatment
A board certified dermatologist developed Clearogen to treat hormonal acne. Here are some facts about how acne develops:
- Acne starts when dihydrotestosterone (DHT) affects the oil glands.
- The enzyme 5 alpha reductase converts testosterone into DHT.
- DHT binds to androgen receptors on the oil glands.
- DHT stimulates the oil glands to produce excess oil.
- Excess oil blocks the pores in the skin.
- Bacteria on the skin causes blackhead acne and other types of acne.
Clearogen contains benzoyl peroxide for acne that is on the skin, right now, but most of all, Clearogen lowers the amount of DHT produced in your skin. When you have normal amounts of this hormone, new acne will not develop.
