How can I treat small bumps on my cheek and forehead?

Asked by Izzy

I have a question. I am 20 with acne. What bothers me most is I have all of these little flesh colored bumps that when squeezed produce a white oily product. I do not know how to get rid of them at all. My skin looks bad because I have tons of these bumps on my cheek and on my forehead. What do you recommend I do and use?

    Flesh colored bumps that produce a white oily product when squeezed are probably closed comedones which are non-inflamed clogged pores. Best way to help them is with a cleanser and toner twice daily to remove oil and then once daily to use a gentle chemical exfoliant like glycolic acid (5 to 8 %) or salicylic acid (2%). It usually takes 2 weeks for these products to work.
