No one looks forward to aging. Women, especially, put more pressure on themselves when it comes to growing old. Fixing their skin, dyeing their hair–it’s a lot of maintenance to keep up with today’s beauty standards.

However, science has revealed that a certain group of women may age better than the rest. According to a recent study, women who had acne in their teenage years have prolonged signs of aging.

Yes, you read that right. As a teenager, you’re so anxious to kiss those pimples goodbye. But later on, you’re more likely to have wrinkles and other signs of aging later than your other friends.

Those who had acne when they were younger were found to have longer ‘protective caps’ on their chromosomes, which prevent their chromosomes from weakening. That means, slower signs of dark spots, wrinkles and gray hair!

Finally, something good comes from acne!
