Cardi B recently took to Twitter to reveal one of her recent beauty struggles: her battle with adult acne. On Wednesday, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper shared a close-up photo of her uncomfortable break-outs on her cheek, and even asked her followers for some skincare tips.
"I been breaking out lately and my face is extremely dry.I don’t think these products are working. I think it’s the water out here," she wrote. "What are some good products for little black heads break outs and dry skin on your face ?"
Though acne is more prevalent in teenagers due to hormonal changes and increased oil production during puberty, adult acne is more common than some people think. The inflamed zits and dry patches can cause physical pain, but these imperfections can pose an even greater toll emotionally.
Dr. Muneeb Shah, a dermatology resident physician with over 3 million TikTok followers, says an array of factors can influence one's acne regardless of age, such as elevated stress, bacteria on your skin, and genetics.
