Adult acne and the recession

If the recession wasn’t bad enough, now comes news there are outbreaks coming. On your face, that is. Adult acne can flare up during times of stress.
The leading cause of adult acne is stress. Dr. Katie Rodan of Oakland, California has been seeing more of her patients for the skin condition. Many of the doctor’s patients are in the financial field or has a spouse in the biz.

Across the country in New York, Manhattan dermatologist Dr. Cheryl Karcher is seeing a slew of clients. They are in for eczema, acne and warts which are all covered by insurance. The clients have been cutting back on the botox and liposuction however. Insurance doesn’t generally cover the elective procedures.

Skin is a barometer of the emotions. When anxiety levels are high it tends to break out much more often.

Karcher says that products with salicylic acid or glycolic acid can help to unclog pores.
