When do you stop getting spots?

I know everyone always gets spots.

I mean more when do you get past the teenage spots thing?
I am nearly 21 () and although most of my face has cleared up, my chin is still a bit spotty in manner of 15 year old. When will it end?

sorry to dishearten you but I'm 30 and still get spots, my chin is particularly bad around time of the month. It gets me down that I thought I'd grow out of it but alas it seems not to be.

Blimy smurfgirl, have some patience! I'm 42 and I still get spots on my nose!!

Seriously though, if it is a problem that upsets you and OTC treatments don't work, see your gp

When I was a teenager I thought there would be a good few years between the disappearance of spots and the onset of wrinkles - now I have both together! Life just isn't fair.

Almost 36 and still get spots. That's so true, Satine - spots and wrinkles: it just isn't fair!

I am 40 and still get them. I have just had a whole crop of them, but then, I had a cold at the same time and think they may have been related.

Really? my chin is like blackhead city and I hate it! I just want to be vaguely clear, I can cope with the odd one by currently have about 8 on my chin, not great glowing pustules like a 13 year old, but still..

I still get those horrid pustules (had one last week) but they are usually by my nose so, if placed just right, look like a bogey hanging down But I have to say, they are much less frequent than they used to be, so have faith!

If it's blackheads a facial might help get rid of them once and for all

I am 26 and still get them. Only odd ones on my face though and then some on my chest and back. I hate them.
