There's currently a vaccination in the works that could stop the vital development of acne in its tracks

Long-term acne sufferers will be able to relate to the ever going battle of curing acne. But after months of beauty products, prescriptions medication, and everything else in between - your skin problems are about to be resolved.

According to The Guardian, there is a new vaccine currently being developed to specifically reverse the effects of a form of bacteria, which plays an integral part of developing acne. The new revelation came from a recent study conducted by UC San Diego, with Eric C.Huang UCSD dermatolgy professor leading the research.  

The vaccination will focus on blocking the negative side effects of the acne-causing bacteria. "Acne is caused, in part, by P. acnes bacteria that are with you your whole life - and we couldn't create a vaccine for the bacteria because, in some ways, P. acnes are good for you," says Huang, to Allure. "But we found an antibody to a toxic protein that P. acnes bacteria secrete on skin - the protein is associated with the inflammation that leads to acne."

The next phrase of the vaccination is testing it on patients. "So far, it's worked on skin biopsies that the researchers collected from acne patients," explains Huang. "The next stage is testing it on patients." According to Allure, the trialling will begin shortly.
