Acne abroad?
posted by Colleen Shirazi, Friday, December 02, 2005 at 1:28 PM (Pacific)

Recently I went on a holiday in Jamaica. It's a nice place btw, I have written a few posts about it elsewhere:

The Lipstick Page Forums Beauty Blog: Makeup for a holiday in Jamaica

...and I plan on writing more here:

TheBroadroom.Net's Travel Blog

I can admit I was curious to see if there would be any change in my skin, in Jamaica. The food is very different there.

For one thing, they don't use corn syrup in every last processed food over there. In fact, they don't appear to use it in anything. I read labels. The Coke, Pepsi, Sprite, etc., are made in the local area and use only cane sugar (the way they used to here). Likewise, bottled catsup and other processed foods.

I expected to see either a dramatic change in my skin, or else nothing. Neither, strictly speaking, came true. My skin did get better...slowly...

I was there for more than a week. The day or so I came home, the clogged pores on my jawline/behind the ears area, returned.

Now the thing is this. a.) I was not there long enough to really draw any conclusions; b.) I still have no way of knowing what caused the temporary improvement.

It could very well be that there is no stress to speak of, when you are on a holiday in Jamaica. It was striking to me--I am an American, and perhaps an unusually stressed-out American on top of it. I've been stressed out all of my life. Being in a stressless environment was a new experience for me.

Could stress really factor that much into adult acne?

Could that also explain why there seems to be a higher incidence of adult acne in the U.S.? then Canada? then Europe?
