Hi there, Asian here too..

Well, I think so that acne is very rare among asian. I'm living in asian country and when i was in high school, there were 50 students in my class, and I was the only one who have this s**t. My family (parents and brothers) are clear, except my sister and me (I'm male).

Now, i'm in Tane. Just finished 1 month from my 6 months course. And I see very2x big improvment. Hope it will always work till the end of the course :)

it's coincidence that the school you gone to had asians without acne. whichever stereotype is out there, its not true that all asians have perfect skin. i know A LOT of asians with acne.

I'm half asian and I have acne and so does my sister. My mom (she's full japanese) had acne as a teenager. Asians get acne just as much as other races. Maybe the other asians you know have good skin genes or something.

I found this in book Clinical Dermatology by Thomas P., MD:

"In Western cultures, acne effects up to 95% of adolescents and persists into middle age in 12% of women and 3% of men. Two non-Westernized populations: the Kitavan Islanders of Papua New Guinea and the Ache hunter-gatherers of Paraguay DO NOT HAVE ACNE."

Unfortunatelly, it doesnt say any about asian or asian culture. But, from this study, we can conclude that there is a relationship between acne, culture, and 'maybe' including race.
