I Have Not Seen One Black Person On This Website

07 January 2014 - 09:23 PM

Does anyone notice the stark lack of black people on acne.org? Even in the real world I almost never see many black people with bad acne, well at least not severely manifested as it does in whites. Are blacks just not acne prone?

The Evolutionary Biology Behind Acne

07 January 2014 - 07:42 PM

Does anyone have any theories? we all know acne has a strong genetic component but the question is why would it be selected. I've heard the theory that acne is meant to keep the opposite sex away through youth in order to prevent pregnancy until the person is an adult but I've always found that ridiculous as many, many people carry acne into adulthood and beyond so the theory doesn't add up. Why do you think this trait exists?

Cystic Acne Is Often A Lifelong Disease

07 January 2014 - 07:11 PM

Better get used to it, sorry. Knowing what I know working as a receptionist for a laser/cosmetic surgery clinic in the past many people definitely struggle with ongoing cystic acne well into their 20's/30's/40's and beyond. It is not a self limited disease and people do not grow out of cystic acne, it is something that is chronic through a persons life. The owner of this website is not being honest when he states in the information section that acne usually subsides by age 20, this is utterly false and he know it too! Dan is in his mid 40's and still is very acne prone. It is in the genes!


Sorry folks, you will always be acne prone.
