During puberty, spots are more a norm than an exception. Most people console themselves with the fact that blemished skin will soon be a thing of the past. However, spots do not always disappear by themselves upon adulthood. Women are particularly prone to so-called "acne tarda", which can lead to spots lasting longer, or even appearing at 30 or 40 years of age. Dermatologists estimate that approximately one in four women will suffer from acne tarda between the ages of 25 and 45. The skin care requirements of this group of women differ greatly from those of young women with blemished skin. On one hand, they want to combat blemishes effectively, but at the same time they also want to counteract age-related wrinkles and the noticeable loss of skin elasticity.
