Many women are always looking for the “fountain of youth”, that mythical spring that can erase the wrinkles and fine lines on their faces. Thanks to this never-ending search, the cosmetic industry has become a multi-billion dollar industry, with annual revenues of almost $57 billion per year. Not surprisingly, facial skin care products represent 27% cut of that revenue.
Of course, if you were to magically get younger skin, you might end up with a problem that many teenage girls suffer from: acne. As Ayren Jackson-Cannady reports for The New York Times, though, you don’t need magic or time travel just to get acne, as more and more adult women are getting it for the first time in their lives.
