Acne problems - October 4th 2019, 11:24 AM

I had no acne problem in my young days. I have fair skin and, my friends were jealous of me for having perfect skin. Indeed, even my sister endured a lot of breakout during her young days and, I felt fortunate for having healthy skin.

As I gradually stepped out of the high school days and, got into adulthood, my hormone level got changed. I started developing small breakouts on my forehead. Finally, it spread to cheeks and, it cannot be considered pimples anymore. It has turned into huge red acne. I have arrived at a condition where I will have at least two skin break out at regular intervals. New ones started to pop out even before the old ones began recovering. The post skin inflammation marks are dull purplish in shading.

I have heard that chemical peel treatments [Edited] from Toronto are effective in reducing acne. Is there anybody over here who have tried chemical peel for reducing acne? How was your experience? Please share!

Though I haven't suffered acne much, I suggest you first ask your doctor to see if there is an antibiotic available, as I'm pretty sure there is one specially for acne. A General Practitioner's advice, I think to be on the safe side should be your first step. And welcome to Teen Help.

Yes, I also had problems with that acne, but I found a hooshengo dermatologist who balanced my diet, helped me normalize the sebaceous glands, and taught me how to properly care for my face. It helped and I got rid of acne.

Thank you for reaching out to us and I am sorry that you are going throught this.
Acne has long been an serious problem to me too, ever since my early teen. Now, I have
However, I wouldn't try chemical peel treatment up front, because any peel treatment, to some degree, involves the action of granding and abrasion the skin surface to get rid of the dead skin cell by physical or chemical means. This action is very likely to irritate skin, cause inflammation, and furthermore enlarge pores and sebaceous excretion.
There are many natural and non-aggressive way to reduce inflammation, balance hormonal level, and calm down those sebaceous glands, and I highly surrgest you to see a dermatologist first to see what kind of acne you have right now to make further move.
I hope your skin gets better soon!

I thinks acne appears because you eat fried food or fat food, sugar and etc. Or maybe it because of hormone imbalance.

With aging your skin might face many issues, which can be solved by proper care and treatment. It often get worsed due to the use of unauthorized product to solve that issue. I'd suggest you to always use authorized products, and the best scenario is to care your skin before any skin problem. [Edited] you can see the skin care routine which you can implement to make your skin glowing and healthy.
