  • My entire life I have always had perfect skin. I would get a pimple here and there but nothing compared to what I'm going through now. As I entered my late 20's I started breaking out and no matter what I did I couldn't get my skin to clear up.
  • Symptoms
    I get cystic pimples that are painful and take a while to come up to the surface. I break out in clusters and it leaves behind horrible scaring.
  • Treatment
    After trying dozens of skincare products, different brands and types of skincare lines, I decided to go get a facial. I have found that getting deep cleansing facials with regularity (at least once a month) has transformed my skin.After trying dozens of skincare products, different brands and types of skincare lines, I decided to go get a facial.

  • Recommendations
    Read the reviews on skincare products before you buy them and specifically try to find a review by someone who describes their skin as similar to yours. Sometimes less is more, and a minimalist skincare routine can make all the difference. Don't forget to exfoliate! Using chemical exfoliants can be far more helpful as it is not abrasive.Read the reviews on skincare products before you buy them and specifically try to find a review by someone who describes their skin as similar to yours.

    Find a skincare routine that is minimal and specifically targets acne prone skin. A lot of the products will contain glycolic and salicylic acids which can cause drying and the skin to peal so make sure to use a good moisturizer. I also started using aloe vera pulp all over my face and have noticed a huge difference in redness and break outs.Find a skincare routine that is minimal and specifically targets acne prone skin.
