I have had acne since I was 9 and I'm 42 now. Some decades were bad, 20's and some were worse, teens and 30's. If your genes are better than mine, it may stop, but for some of us, it never totally goes away. I have friends who never had acne in their youth and it struck with a vengence in their 30's.Both of my parents had acne way past their teens, so I'm sure I'll be battling it for years to come.

I'm 18. I started getting acne very very mildly when I was 15-16. Then it turned to mild when I started 11th grade. It stayed quite steady for the next year.. year and a half.. and wouldnt go away. Now its starting to get better it seems. I get breakouts much less often.. and usually only a few pimples. Its been about a month since I had an actual breakout.. last week I had one teeny tiny zit but thats all. I dont really know if the sudden improvement is hormonal or due to the new regimen Im on. Either way.. odds are it wont stay this good. Ya never know though.
