No one is immune: While teenagers are more prone to getting "pimples" or acne due to hormonal changes affecting the environment of the skin, it is still possible and common for older people to get this - if keeping the skin clean and over the counter remedies (and time) don't resolve the problem then a primary care doctor or dermatologist can offer other remedies that may help ie. Antibiotics etc.

Stop pimples: That is a rather broad question. Generally, a diet low in carbs and dairy will help breakouts. Keeping the skin clean but not irritated will also help. Don't go in for all these abrasive brush devices, unless you have iron skin.

Many options: Acne unfortunately keeps recurring but there are things to help such as using washes and topicals with benzoyl peroxide, glycolic and salicylate acid. Also using prescription meds such as topical and oral antibiotics, retinoids, azelaic acid.

Scientific Rx: A trial of benzoyl peroxide is worth making before you visit your physician. If you are not clear in 2 weeks, your physician may write for a topical such as a retinoic acid derivative or clindamycin, or proceed directly to a systemic antibiotic such as tetracycline. If this fails, there are stronger rx's. Should you try supplements don't spend too much money. Acne's not from lifestyle or dirt.
