3. .Recurrence of acne that cleared up after adolescence
Acne that appears for the first time in adulthood should be examined by a dermatologist who can investigate the cause of acne .There are a few causes of adult acne:

· Chronic physical pressure on your skin. Some straps of backpack which are made of bad quality materials can cause chronic physical pressure on your skin may induce a condition like acne mechanica.
· Industrial chemicals. These may induce the occupational skin disorder. As you know chemicals very harmful for the skin.

However, some irritations or inflammation of some organs in our body can also induce acne.
