Not ALL teenagers have acne. I would say about 10% off all teenagers have acne. 85% never had and never will get acne and the other 5% will get adult acne. Believe me it does happen like this. I've seen it. Older people get acne usually because the main reason being that they never had acne as a teenager. I always sais that its better to have acne as a teenager then to have acne as an adult. Its definitely more embarassing for adults.
I don't think that theres anything teenagers can do to control their hormones because acne is usually a sign of 'growing into an adult'. And no I'm not talking about puberty becuse puberty only occurs for a few months to a year and teenage acne can last for years. Acne is always a hormonal thing.

PS: Puberty is a 3-5 year process; not a few months. If you think it lasted a few months for you, I'd worry about how you'll go through life.

I was as well! But with no sign of it slowing down I went on Accutane...soon to turn 24.
I don't really understand it--my brother had terrible teenage acne that he grew out of at age 21.
I didn't grow out of it for whatever reason...probably because of my damn female hormones. Not fair.
