Dallas has plenty of sun, stress and sports -- and all can cause acne
There are many causes of acne. Heat and sun damage, like the kind caused by spending a few too many hours on Lewisville Lake in the summer, can take moisture out of your skin, leaving you susceptible to pimples.
Stress, like the kind experienced driving daily in one of Dallas’ endless construction zones, can also be a trigger for acne.
Even if you have won the acne battle in your life, you may have teenage children at home who are dealing with adolescent acne. Even though 85 percent of teens in America get acne, it can still cause emotional stress and low self esteem.
Skin irritation from recreational activities doesn’t stop at exposure to the elements, either. Dallas is a high school sports town and athletic gear worn by teenage children can also cause acne. Pads, chin straps, sports bras and headbands can trap heat, moisture and oil against the skin, which can cause acne mechanica, a specific form of acne.
