Maybe tribes .. like in brazil 'untouched by society'... are the exception to acne.

I've also seen blacks, whites, mixed race, everything. I think acne is just a human condition, lol. Maybe it has to do with lifestyle, instead of race.

1. Black women had higher rates of acne overall, and tended to have more severe forms of acne than did white women - this was true for teens, and women in their 20s and 30s.
2. However, after age 40, white women had higher incidence rates of acne than did black women.
3. Scarring, and hyperpigmentation was more frequently a problem for black women than for white women.
The article was in dermatology times a few years ago, but I don't have the exact reference.
