Grow out of acne yet ? I have something to say......

I kind of feel like outgrowing acne very soon. I'm 24 soon & it's normal stage in the majority I think.
I feel so sorry for those still struggle with acne. It's a long long battle for me & u & I finally won and so do u . Sometimes , when I see people on the street with serious acne but he/she is supposed to have grown out of it.I really wish to approach him/her to tell my experience.
I still remember the days I often came to the board to search for so-called "miracles" . OF COURSE NONE OF THEM GUARANTEE WORKED. You can take advice only . some are really useful !

For me , what's the definition of "outgrow acne" ? I ocassionally have pimples if I eat too much fried food(generally unhealthy food) or too little sleep . so ....growing acne, I think,just I think.........it's a kind of "body reaction" to those ...........xxxxx (i don;t know how to say) .....um.... to detox the digestive system or blah......blah..... Just like u develope symptoms like coughing or sneezing with cold/flu. You need to take time for a rest.
Just a few simple steps I can control my acne to very minimum or even none.I will consider "outgrow acne". What about u ? Can u share with me ?

For many people acne doesn't even start until adulthood - many people have clear skin until they hit their 30's.

lol @ JB. I think what he means by "outgrowing" acne is not so much that he's finished with the crazy-hormone-age and it's just disappearing, but that he's finally managing it and it's no longer a big part of his life like it used to be. I think age is just relative in the matter. Hongkongers, I'm right there with you. (:

Holy crap!! I really hope I'm not going to be like that!!

Sorry to hear about your mom though, I 'm sure having acne her whole life gets on her last nerve. I guess she's tried everything, right?!

Re: Grow out of acne yet ? I have something to say......

Oh, it scares me, because I've had acne since I was about 11, and I'm afraid I've inherited my mom's problem. Which means I have many, many years of struggling with it ahead of me.

Yeah, my mom has tried everything over the years. Antibiotics kept it in check for a few years, but she got nervous about taking them for such an extended period of time, and went off of them. SIGH.
