Hi, i'm new to this board.Anyways, i'm a 19 yo male and i still have acne. I'm wondering if for the older people here if their acne got better as soon as they reached an older age?? i know it has to do with genetics too, but noone in my family has it anymore, so i'm not too worried bout adult acne. I know this is a little embarassing, but at the age of 19, i dont think i've finished with puberty yet. Theres been new hair growth around my stomach etc. also the hair on my arms and thighs hasnt fully thickened and darken. Do you think my acne will go away after puberty?? thats a dumb question, but any feedback will be helpful. tia
Need some feedback on acne and puberty
There's no sharp end to puberty - it slowly tails off, and your chest can keep getting hairier though your twenties and beyond. It's not uncommon for acne to still be a problem at 19. It will probably gradually go away over the next few years.
