The truth is, breakouts can affect anyone – not just teens! In fact, adult acne affects 25% of adult men and 50% of adult women at some time. According to dermatologist Dr. David Bank, the damage of the summer’s rays can cause blockage of the sebaceous oil glands, sometimes translating into breakouts during the fall season. (This makes year-round sunscreen even more important!)
