The best acne products for women, men, and teens are getting better, and more affordable, according to a new study by the University of Texas at Austin.
The study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, also found that the number of people with mild to moderate acne has been increasing for the past two decades.
The researchers, led by Dr. Eric Hsieh, MD, professor of dermatology at the UT Austin School of Medicine, used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to examine the prevalence of acne and its associated health outcomes among adults aged 18 to 64.
The report found that for men, acne prevalence rose from 1.3% in 2005 to 2.5% in 2013, but the trend was reversed by 2014.
The study also found an increase in acne prevalence among women from 2.3 to 4.4%.
The results of the study were particularly striking for women because, like men, they are at greater risk for developing acne, with rates of 10.6% and 7.5%, respectively.
The results are based on a nationwide survey that is conducted every two years and asks people about their acne history and treatment.
Hsiehe also compared the prevalence rates between men and women to determine whether or not acne was more prevalent in men than in women.
The findings show that the prevalence rate of acne among women is significantly higher than that among men.
Women had an average prevalence of 2.8%, while men had an estimated 2.9%.
The researchers found that women who were diagnosed with mild acne had higher odds of being diagnosed with severe acne, which has a higher risk of complications and is more difficult to treat.
Hsieh said that while women are at higher risk for acne, there are significant differences between the prevalence and severity of acne in men and men.
For instance, women had a higher prevalence of mild acne and an increased risk of severe acne compared to men, the study showed.
The authors of the report, along with Dr. Richard J. Oehlmeyer, MD; and Dr. Joseph P. Renn, MD. reported that the increased prevalence of severe and mild acne in women and the increased risk for severe acne are likely due to the presence of the inflammatory cytokines IL-1β and IL-10 in the body.
In addition, there is evidence that acne triggers the production of the peptide androgen receptor 1, which is a protein involved in hormone secretion.
These hormones are also involved in inflammation and acne.
For example, IL-8, a cytokine, can increase the production and production of prostaglandins, which can further increase the risk for skin inflammation and cause acne.
