Most of us face harsh sunlight, dirt, heat, and pollution almost every day. While the outer layer of the skin acts as a barrier to protect it from all these elements, regular exposure can make you vulnerable to several skin conditions. Understanding your skin condition will help you get the optimal treatment. Let’s take a look at some of the most common skincare issues adults experience.

1. Acne

Most common among teenagers, acne is one of those skin problems that often persists even after achieving puberty. Either due to poor skin care, genetic factors, unhealthy diet, or hormonal imbalance, many adults continue to face acne-related problems such as blackheads, whiteheads, or painful cysts most of their lives.

2. Hives

Medically called urticaria, hives are familiar welts that tend to appear on the skin. These welts are raised, red and itchy areas that are often caused by a trigger. Some common causes of hives may include improper medication, food, bug bites and stings. Hives, if severe, can cover a large part of your body, face and throat, even affecting your breathing. Hives usually go away in a few hours but in some cases, they can persist for months and even years.

3. Eczema

If you are experiencing an itch that is too painful to scratch or dry skin that is just not healing then you might be suffering from eczema or dermatitis. These skin conditions usually take the form of dry, crusty and flaky patches that can cause bleeding. Eczema is often genetic but it may also be triggered by allergic reactions. There is no cure for eczema and dermatitis but you can control its symptoms with lifestyle changes and optimal treatment.

4. Melasma

Melasma is a skin condition that leads to patches and spots, usually on your face. These patches and spots are typically darker than your natural skin tone. Melasma is often mistaken for other skin conditions, therefore it is important to consult a dermatologist if you are experiencing similar symptoms. 

5. Warts

Warts can be of four different types including common warts, plantar warts, genital warts and molluscum. Warts are a type of infection caused by HPV or human papillomaviruses. This virus can enter your body through a cut on your skin. Warts commonly appear on hands and feet. Though painless, warts are typically contagious, therefore you must consult with a dermatologist for proper treatment.   

Dermatologists may use light therapy and medications to manage the symptoms of your skin condition. If you are dealing with any skin conditions,
