A lot of people say that it should go away by your mid - late 20's but theres plenty of people on this board that would suggest otherwise. My brother is in his mid 20's and still has acne and my mum is in her 50's and has it. Genetics can give a good indicator of when your acne will go, but for me it looks as though i'm fucked for the next 30 years at least!

i dont know, but to me acne starts getting moderate and even going away when you don think about it every signle second of your freakin life, thinking about your acne 24/7 just causes much more acne than there should be, dont stress people, there is a way to get clear skin

most of the men in my family still have acne... wonder why the women get away lightly.

ive had it since i was 8 and im 13 now, and its mostly gone, i think it depends.. both my parents had super-bad acne all through teens and 20's, and mines not HALF as bad as theirs was, so it really depends, although a dermatologist could probably help ya out thur..

If you want to get an estimate, just ask your parents how long they had acne (if they had acne, of course)

Well, it is just an estimate... hope for the best... my skin has been about the same for maybe 5-6 years. I'm sure if you keep searching for a product or regimen then you'll find one that works.

for some people it never goes away. It stays but remains very very mild.

But derms and doctors have said that for some reason, acne is multiple times more common when we reach our 20's, which wasn't evident a few decades ago.

i think its definitely due to the prescritpion of all these anti-biotics by doctors. Thats why acne is so much more common because it creates a super strain of acne bacteria that stays around longer than normal...i wish i had never started on the slippery slope when i was first prescribed Minocycline. At the time though i would have done anything to get rid of it.....i should have just toughed it out and it would probably be gone by now!
