Acne can cause just about anyone to feel self conscious about their overall appearance. If you suffer from acne— no matter what age you are— it can be embarrassing to be seen out in public or to even see a picture of yourself. Gain back your confidence and your skin complexion with the following tips.

Chemical Peels

By applying a chemical across your face, these chemicals work to target the top few layers of your skin in order to encourage them to slough off. For about a week after your chemical peel, you will start to notice your skin peeling away— during this process new skin is being formed and new collagen is also being formed which helps to aid against acne scarring and rid your skin of acne causing oils.


Topical Creams

Before you schedule an appointment with your dermatologist, track and see if your acne is purely hormonal or if you think that it’s a bit more bacterial based. For hormonal acne, try an over-the-counter topical cream or gel that contains ingredients like salycilic acid. Salycilic acid is an all-natural plant based ingredient that works to fight acne from the inside out. However, if you’ve tried an over-the-counter cream and just aren’t getting the results you want, it’s time to schedule an appointment with your dermatologist.

Change Your Skincare

Skin is a funny thing— sometimes products like lotions or makeups that you used to use, can suddenly cause your skin to breakout. If you notice that you started breaking out after you started using a certain product, change up your skincare for around a week and see if you notice any improvements— chances are the product is just too oily for your skin type.
