Most of the ppl on this forum seem to be very young like in high school and college. But theres also tons of ppl here who are in their mid and late 20s and many in their 30s as well. There are ppl here in their 40s but lesser and 50+ much rare. Theres a subforum where its for adult acne which is for 25+.
I'm 27 and had acne since i was 15. At 15-17, my acne was moderate. At that time, i didn't care much about it. I also didn't care how i looked at all though. I was a nerd/geek and only thing i cared about were grades and tv. I didn't even look or care about my face at that time, i wore glasses, geeky hairstyle etc you get the point. My acne from 18-21 was moderate-severe. At that time i was very self conscious because i was in college at that time. I felt very unhappy etc, you get the point.
My acne cleared up a lot when i was 24 or so and I had thought finally i outgrew acne. I still had acne but it was pretty mild. I did have the occasional cyst but it was only when i ate fried food etc.
My acne came back last year and it gotten me feel as worst as ever now. The big difference here is i'm 27 now as oppose to when i was 20.
To those of you who had acne most of your life, I'm wondering at what age range is having acne the worst? Would love to hear insight from those of you that are 30+.
I see so many ppl unhappy b/c of their acne and most of them are in high school. I know its horrible to have it at that young age when you making friends with ppl etc. The same as with college where acne hurts you more than in high school. I then read about lot of ppl here who say they are unhappy b/c they are an adult at 24 and still suffer through acne and look like a kid.
That got me thinking. At what age range would you say is the worst to have acne? I know many of the young ppl here in their teens and early 20s are upset but can young ppl imagine how bad acne is when they are 25+ as oppose to right now? Or still having bad acne at 30+.
In my experience, i think having acne at 25+ is worst than having it when you are 14-21. The thing is however if you have it at 40, i feel like it isn't as bad as when you are in your mid late 20s or early 30s. Anyone agree/disagree with my logic? The thing is most ppl who get acne are in their teens anyways so why do so many of them get so unhappy? I mean do you really think you are the only 15 year old with acne or something? The majority of ppl with acne are between 14-18 if im not mistaken? Acne is so common for a teen and even when i was 15-17, I didn't think much about it b/c i saw others with it. But for whose of you who are college age, i can definitely see it bothering you. But i feel like having it at an adult like 25+, its the worst.
Its simliar to like well if you aren't married at 40, then most likely its going to be impossible simliar to like at 40 and having bad acne, then its going to be very tough to cure it?
Would like opinions from you and what age u are as well? Would like opinion from those of you who are younger and older.
