I'm turning 40 in a few months and I still get cystic acne. My skin is incredibly oily. Looking on the bright side, it has helped with the aging process. However my acne (which I believe is hormone based) is so painful and embarrassing. I bet like most long term acne sufferers, I have tried everything, read everything and am doing everything I can to take care of my skin - with zero results. I have been on Doxycycline for like, a year. It worked in the beginning but it's pretty worthless now. I think I'm ready to try Accutane. Has anyone experience premature aging? Because my skin is so oily I don't have any wrinkles, even though I am nearly 40. I'm worried that Accutane with make me age.
