Life with skin: Unfortunately, a percentage of men or women will battle acne until their 30's or longer.Finding a good basic routine that will clean, unplug and maintain the troublesome areas is a necessary part of living. There are OTC products, and prescription retinoids than can help.Work out a plan with your doc and stick to it. You have to learn to live with the skin you have.
