Believe it or not, well, I'm sure you will believe it, about 90% of all teenagers can develop acne in some form. That in its self would not be so bad it if it would go away fast. Unfortunately, it can stay with you an average of 6-8 years! (Ughh !!)
But here's the kicker: acne may also start as late as your 20's or 30's, especially in women whose hormones are constantly fluctuating. This kind of adult acne can last for up to 20 years. It is not unheard of (about 25%) for adults between the ages of 25 and 44 experience acne. Nearly half of all adult women experience mild to moderate acne. Genetics play a big part in the development and persistence of acne, so your family history is a valuable prediction tool as well.
Alright, have I bummed you out yet? Sorry about that, but these are good things to know. The good news is that there really are some good systems and things you can do to help with the acne / pimple problem. Since genetics can play a role, you may need to play around with different remedies before you find one that works best for you.
