Acne does not restrict itself to the age of the person. Like any other medical condition, it can happen at any age. More than age, it’s the skin type and genetic make up of the oil glands that cause acne. Therefore if your skin is oily and your oil glands are genetically more sensitive to various triggers like hormones, stress, pollution etc then acne can occur even at the age of 50 years. That is why waiting for acne to get better with time and age is not the right thing to do as in the process they may cause irreversible scars. With chronic acne, you may need to make a few lifestyle changes like changing your skin care regime and your diet pattern. This will make your skin more receptive to the treatment and will also help to prevent relapses.
