The impact of acne vulgaris on quality of life and psychic health in young adolescents in Greece. Results of a population survey
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3699905/
Body image / peer pressure

Body image involves perceptions, thoughts and behavior related to one's appearance. Perceived body image is influenced when individuals have a skin disease. 4

Adolescents body image is modified by several factors, most prominently peer pressure. 5-8 Peer pressure was evaluated by a single question assessing whether acne adolescents felt they were affected by the attitudes of family, friends and teachers towards their body image. The question was:

"Do you believe that your acne affects negatively the way that others (relationships, parents, friends, teachers, opposite sex e.t.c.) treat you?" with two responses, yes and no. Those who answered yes were considered impaired, as far as their body image was concerned.

Acne is tough and very hard on self esteem when a teenager.

I find acne and also braces etc and other kid/teen stuff a bit adorable when it's on adults. I have adult acne from smoking which I don't love because sometimes pimples hurt.

My friend had acne for the longest time. One day I noticed that his face was clear and asked. He took Accutane or RoAccutane. He was on it for 5 months and completely cleared him up. He said they have to monitor him because the drug was bad for many things, but every month he was monitored (blood work) so he felt somewhat safe.

He's okay and cleared up. One thing I did noticed on him, his lips were super dry but I never asked about it just how I never asked about his acne.

I actually find acne (save the most extreme cases) kind of .... cute now. I got a crush on a cute, scrawny straight guy who happened to have bad skin, and ever since then .... it actually doesn't bother me.

Sometimes, that's all it takes to completely turn you around on certain subjects of personal appearance -- the right person can open up a whole new "type" for you. I had a similar experience with someone forever turning me onto twinks, whereas before I was fairly picky about liking jocks and even bodybuilders. :-)

Love me some gawkish, geeky awkwardness. Glasses, too!

I think we're evolutionary driven to find it has negative. Skin is a basic indicator of health.

I definitely think after a certain point an adult should have less acne. If you are older with acne it looks like you have poor hygiene.

Unfortunately, no but it is not that big of a deal if it is a small amount of acne.

Sheer ignorance.  I am 35 and still have it.  It gets bad at times when I stress out, and it has nothing to do with my hygiene.  In fact, it really seems the more I wash my face - regardless of the product I use - the worse I break out.  My doctor refused to prescribe me Accutane when I was in my teens, citing dangerous side effects..  And now that it has been recalled, if I start it now I have no grounds to sue if I develop side effects later.

Trust me ... there are those of us out there that find the physical trait endearing, or at least a neutral factor. We understand. :-)

Truth is, that acne is not a puberty only thing.

Individuals with greasy skin can still get acne even in adulthood, and the greasy skin can be due to genetic factors, not bad hygiene. Acne can happen as an allergic reaction even.

I have no qualms on kissing a guy with the ocasional pimple, it's just natural...but if he's having a full outbreak, he should look for some medication.

I had acne as a teen and took Accutane. It's an awful thing to go thru when it is serious. But to answer the question, let me just say I don't find it attractive. An 18-early 20 year old with acne is one thing, it's expected and doesn't bother me as much. 

I'm more "put off" by acne on a grown man's back or butt.
