When it comes to acne, it鈥檚 a blessed few that find themselves free of worry from聽its complexion woes. Even A-listers like聽Kendall Jenner and Emma Stone聽have struggled to keep their skin free and clear of the dreaded zit from time to time.

Roughly 50 million Americans聽suffer from the unpleasant skin condition, and scientists may have just come up with聽a solution聽that could change your acne-ridden life forever: an acne vaccine.

Apparently, while we鈥檝e been making due with regulatory birth control and acne-fighting beauty products, a team at the University of California, San Diego has been hard at work, attempting to develop a potion聽that would eradicate our complexion problems once and for all.

Though the project鈥檚 lead researcher, Eric C. Huang, said the undertaking poses several unique challenges, he recently chatted with Allure to say they鈥檙e one step closer to achieving the very thing they set out to do.

鈥淎cne is caused, in part, by P. acnes bacteria that are with you your whole life 鈥 and we couldn鈥檛 create a vaccine for the bacteria because in some ways, P. acnes are good for you,鈥 he said. 鈥淏ut we found an antibody to a toxic protein that P. acnes bacteria secrete on skin 鈥斅爐he protein is associated with the inflammation that leads to acne.鈥 In other words? The team鈥檚 newly developed vaccine would work to target the protein rather than the actual bacteria, eliminating its negative, acne-causing effects.

It鈥檚聽shown plenty of promise thus far, giving way to聽successful results聽on skin biopsies taken from acne patients. Next up for the potential miracle vaccine? Human trials. While it will likely be a while before we hear any further progress, as tests are expected to take up to two years, it鈥檚 certainly an exciting idea 鈥斅爅ust imagine! No pimples on a date or an interview ever again.

Fingers crossed this dream becomes a reality.
