I'm 31 and still get acne outbreaks. My dad is 56 and has severe cystic acne. There's just some people who don't grow out of it.

Start by using the over-the-counter products for now. I found improvement when I used the benzoyl peroxide (BP) stuff. Just be careful, a higher % of BP does not always mean it works better. Sometimes it can be so strong that it makes things worse. Try the 10%, but if your face becomes sensitive or overly dry, go to the 2%.

If after several months of using the OTC products and your acne hasn't improved, go see a dermatologist. There's plenty of topical and oral medications to help clear your skin.
