Women who suffer from severe acne problems may benefit from a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and fish, a new study suggests.
Researchers from the Group for Epidemiologic Research in Dermatology (GISED) in Italy sought out to discover the contributing factors behind the development of acne in women over 25 years old.
Acne In Adult Women
A vast majority of teenagers go on to develop acne on their skin. This is because their sebaceous glands produce more amounts of oil during this stage, causing their pores to be clogged more often.
Acne isn’t considered a serious problem, though it could lead to permanent scarring of the skin.
Dr. Luigi Naldi, a skin expert from the GISED’s Study Center and lead author of the study, said that the good news for acne sufferers is that they could see their skin begin to clear up by the time they reached 20 years old.
However, about 20 to 40 percent of adults still tend to have breakouts on their skin.
