Skincare Study Shows 50 Percent of Adults Struggle with Acne
In honor of acne awareness month, professional skincare brand Cosmedix took to social media to survey men and women between the ages of 18 and 55 about their most common skin care concerns. The survey, revealed 50 percent of adults have been struggling with constant breakouts for over four years. Advanced Health NY knows that skin care is an important part of looking good and offers Hydro Facials and IPL Photo Facials to help reduce acne and to improve the appearance of skin. These services can be used separately or combined to enhance your natural beauty.
"Acne can affect up to 95 percent of teens, but as our survey indicates, it remains a top global skin concern for people of all ages and they're struggling to treat this condition with long-term success," says Ryan Christopher, global education director at Cosmedix.
Of the survey participants, 50 percent admitted to having tried more than five acne treatments to combat skin issues, while 19 percent had tried more than 15 acne-fighting skincare solutions to find the acne-fighting product that worked for them. 30 percent of participants revealed that they had used a sick or personal day to avoid going to work with a break out. Less than 30 percent of respondents were familiar with professional acne-fighting products and procedures.
"For the longest time, it was commonly believed that only harsh ingredients like benzoyl peroxide could treat acne,” says Christopher. “While these ingredients can be effective, they can also cause side effects such as irritation and rebound acne. At Advanced Health NY, we can reduce acne safely and effectively, with no harmful side effects.
The survey conclusions also recommends acne-prone adults visit a skincare professional to build a personalized routine for proper professional care that should be paired with at-home care as well.
"Whether it's at-home care or spa treatments, we commit to clean skincare because we understand just how big of a role skin health plays in our daily lives," says Christopher. "We learned that of the 50 percent of adults that have been struggling with acne for more than four years, 50 percent have never seen a professional to help treat their acne. This is a crucial step in finding exactly what works for you, so we always encourage customers to frequent a local esthetician or dermatologist."
