I get acne from time to time on my chin, of all places - I'm 55. It looks out of place when it happens! So I can relate.......
FYI, Neutrogena makes a great acne cream, called On the Spot. Somewhat pricey but goes far. Very mild, but it works. And doesn't dry out your skin like acne topical creams do for younger people.
Also, my 23 year old has always struggled with acne. At one time she was on 3 daily meds for it, but I was never comfortable with her taking so many meds and neither was her Pediatrician (a Derm. originally prescribed all of the meds). Long story short, our insurance drastically changed, Rx co-pay went thru the roof (still are, $30 to $50 now), so we tried Proactiv. It works! I was skeptical but wanted her off the acne meds so we tried it. You find their kiosk's in malls. A starter kit is under $50 and last for weeks.
