How many of you still get pimples even though you are an adult?

I figured it was about time for this to stop!

  • Once in a while, right before Aunt Flo shows up, I may get one of those under-the-skin kind that never come to a head, but hurt like a beeootch! I find as I get older and have begun "the change," it happens more frequently - more than when I was a teen! Those 'mones can sure mess with a person!

  • Figure on..... LOL I'm nearly 40... I still have bouts... my friend is nearly 50 and so does she..... it happens to way more than want you to know....that's why photographers offer airbrushing.

  • I get them all the stinking time. I have scars on my face from them and it really is irritating me now that I'm getting older. I'm actually looking older :(

  • I am 32 and I still get them. Not as bad as when I was a teenager, but they still show up at the most inconvienient times. Like right before the big job interview, or datenight with hubby. Last year I got three big ones right in a row across my forehead right before family picture day.

  • I do sometimes, but then again my acne flared up when I was 12 and had stopped by the time I was 16. I got my good skin from my mom and grandma. If I don't wash my face, it'll get horribly oily and gross and I'll break out. But if I make sure to wash and moisturize properly, I'm good to go.

  • You're all going to hate me . . lol . . . but at around 28, I just stopped getting pimples. I never had acne in high school, but I would get those occasional face volcanoes . . yucko. I'm certainly glad that's over . . .. lol, I'll probably wake up with one tomorrow!! Occasionally, I get one of those super tiny whiteheads that once you pop, you cant even tell it was there. Even when I was pregnant, I didn't get any. My sister is that girl that everyone could hate . . perfect porcelain skin, no pimples, no blackheads, nothing AND when she shaves her legs stay smooth for like a week. We are italian/irish . . . well she's looks irish and I look italian . . hairy and all . . . lol

  • I do, but not as bad and for not as long, although the redness stays quite awhile even once the pimple has been cleared up.
