What age does acne die down?

I've had acne for the past 4 years and am now 18 years old. I've noticed that in the last year my face seems more like there are more clogged pores everywhere on my face and facial hair seems to be coming in thicker also. The pimples aren't as bad as they used to be and I was just curious if these clogged pores will go away and at what age?

There is not set age for acne to die down, everyone is different. Some at the end of puberty, some in mid-ages, and some probably never, but it should die down in some time.

Do you have an older brother or sister who has/had acne you can compare yourself to? Also, if you have the courage to ask your parents when they grew out of acne, that could be a good marker.

Sadly, most of my family grew out of theirs in their mid-20's, and I'm only 16 :(. Still got a ways to go for me.
