Typical acne lesions are not necessarily related to age. Acne is relatively common in people in their 30s, and the latest statistics show that it also affects 5% of the population over 40. Regardless of the age, the basic skin care rules are essentially the same. Skin must be protected from the sun. Despite the fact that exposure to sunlight provides a temporary improvement of acne condition, it intensifies skin lesions at a later stage. Regular cleansing is also required but over-drying must be avoided or else sebaceous glands will react with increased sebum production. It is also important to use products with antimicrobial properties.
