Does success brings about Acne in women?

Sounds strange!! However, the recent study findings suggest that acne has become a common skin problem especially for successful women in their mid-twenties.

acne middle age As per the claim of Dermatologists at Nantes University Hospital, around half of women have problems with spots in adult life even if they never had spots as teenagers.
The researchers found that adult acne was different to the teenage version.  Adolescents tend to get them around the "T-zone" of the chin, nose and forehead, women past their mid-twenties get more persistent spots which are deeper under the skin, 'The Daily Telegraph' reported.

Dr Susannah Baron, of the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, said: “It’s time to re-evaluate who we think gets acne. It’s not recognised enough how much it affects the lives of adult women.‘For many, it kicks in later in life when they have to juggle families and careers at the same time.”
Women are up to three times more likely to suffer from acne than men, which might be because their skin is more sensitive to male hormones.
One theory is that women are under more stress than previous generations and stress releases male hormones, which trigger more oil production and block pores leading to acnes.

It’s true that  in modern era women are more competitive in compare to older times, the fight for finding own identity while balancing personal and professional life can lead to "stress"- could be a reason for acnes???

I think if midlife stress is the reason for the acne; then best treatment option would be the stress management. Here I would like to add that more studies should be done to know more about the health problems that a mid life stress can bring about in women, Digg out…

    I think this is another of those 'everything in moderation' issues - too much salt is bad for you - likewise, too little is bad for you. The problem is that too many people have unhealthy diets which contain too much salt - and it creates a national problem! If you eat the correct amount then it just shouldn't be a problem at all!

    Perhaps it is also the change in foods we eat al through our lives like the increase in high GI goods and dairy. In an Eskimo population acne was absent when they were living and eating meals accustomed to their culture, but upon acculturation, acne prevalence began to increase to levels similar to that of Western society.
