how old were you when...

you started getting acne? and how old are you now? has it gotten better or worse, and what seems to trigger it off the worst? rate your skin 1-10 (acne, cyst, red marks, scars)

ive had it since 14, i am 21, it gets better at times, and other times i look horrible, right now i would say its average, got about 4 zits, and a few red marks that are fading, might have 1 or 2 small scars but nothing big, for me smoking would trigger it, drinking alcohol, sex, eating greasy foods, stress, and sweating...haha all the fun stuff right? i would rate my skin 7-10.

Re: how old were you when...

I have had acne since I was 11. I am now 27. The reason I have acne is because my skin is very oily. It has not improved. Unless my skin dries up, then I will always break out. I use proactiv, and it clears up pimples, but I still have trapped and clogged pores.
