My mom is 53, and still gets the occasional nasty every once in awhile. She's never had breakouts as bad as I have, but her face is STILL super oily 24/7.

I've never seen anyone over 30 with acne? Do old/older people get it? I'm only 20...

I'm 43 and I still have it. A bunch of my friends have it, too. . .

I'm 41, but my acne qualifies as "persistent", not "adult onset" .... I've had it since I was 11 years old and frankly, I expect to have it forever. Luckily I have it under control, at least for now. *knocks wood*

I hope not to scare you, but I'm 50 and still have minor acne. Sometimes moderate flare-ups, but not often. My skin is very oily, as it has been since I was 16.

I asked my derm if I was his oldest patient. He said no, some have acne in their 60s.

But don't freak-out after reading this. I believe I'm in a very small group. And if you do end up like

me, they will probably have a cure for acne long before you reach my age. At least lets hope so!

And for you young guys who can't get a date because you look like the poster-boy for the

Jerry Lewis Acne Telethon, don't worry.

Once you get in your 30s, women don't care that your skin isn't perfect. As long as you treat women with

respect, act like a decent man, and have a stable income (a good health plan would also help!),

the women will be knocking down your door to meet you.
