Is acne good for you?
from DNA India
As far as skin issues go, there's nothing worse than battling acne. Especially when a bunch of pimples crop up just before a big event and then leave behind unsightly marks. Acne is not just a teenage problem and for many, it continues long into their adult years. But while most have cribbed about the condition, there may be good news for acne sufferers. New research from King's College London, based on 1,205 female twins, suggests adolescents with spots tend to stay looking youthful for longer, compared to those with "perfect skin." They claim this is because people with acne have a built-in protection against aging. This is due to telomeres, which are referred to as "caps" at the ends of our DNA strands. They get shorter as we get older, which contributes to cell ageing but those with acne seem to have longer telomeres in their white blood cells.
