Here's some good news for all those suffering from acne. According to new studies published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, all people who have had acne on their face grow older than people with pure face (ah, finally good news. Revenge is sweet).
Researchers at King's College London have found that "people who have suffered from acne at some point in their lives are fortunate because their skin creates wrinkles later than others. This is also because the fat that their faces create is good skin protection.
According to researchers, these people may have longer telomeres in white blood cells. This means their cells can be better protected against aging. " Otherwise, telomeres are known as the protective nucleotides found at the bottom of the chromosomes.)
Specifically, the study relied on 1,205 twin women, a quarter of whom had suffered from acne at different stages of their lives. After checking white blood cells and skin samples, it was noted that all those who had acne had long protective "hats" at the bottom of the chromosomes.
What does this mean?
Previous studies have shown that people with telomeres age more slowly than others, and this study showed that people who have suffered from acne have significantly longer telomeres than the rest of people with clean faces.
OK, maybe all the mornings in which you have been crying for acne on your face have had a good ending. Aging will come slower….
