  7. Hello everyone, former acne sufferer here, I'm 29 now, and I've been having problems with acne ever since I was 16 or so. Irony was it started getting worse after my teen years, and worse. to this day, although I don't break out anymore, the scars are very much there and visible (one of the reasons I started wearing a beard).
