What did they do in the old days when people suffered from moderate to suffer forms of acne... Did they commit suicide... or created a dominant attitude and decided to punish their kids and grand-children like my grandmother...

Whew, I have actually thought about that a lot. I can only imagine the torment and havoc people brought upon their face.

And in some small countries, people were probably cast out, and put through some weird ass rituals to get rid of a "demon" or something.

Well i know they use to treat boils and such buy slicing them open and draining them and then apply some sort of essential oil. I think rose water or oil or whatever it's called.

So i would think they would do something like that. Or apply a bunch of "prescribed" herbs or oils. But if you were a peasant you would probably have to suffer with it because the high class were really the only beautiful ones back then.

Did as many people have acne in olden times as do now? One of my elderly professors once said that he didn't remember so many people having blemishes when he was younger. Either all the hormones in our food, or the stress of our lives has done something to us ... or my prof is just too old to remember correctly!

I always wondered that meself. They either painted their faces or just dealt with looking fug. People with overly painted faces were generally shunned and considered "unbeautiful." This has been documented in several historical accounts.

i think adults get acne for hormonal reasons, coming off of birth control ect. that is why it is much more common for adult women than men.

Historians suspect that the ancient Egyptian ruler King Tut had acne issue based on jars of ancient herbal pimple remedies found in his tomb!

I think between smallpox, acne, and other crazy facial things, perfect skin was more rare than we realize (and possibly experience now).

I'm pretty sure they just suffered through it. According to my grandparents (deceased now) anyways.
