How do I care for my acne?

Asked by Terra 3 Rep.

I have experienced at me for the past 10 years of my life. I am healthy. I drink plenty of water. I eat good foods. I don’t wear make up on a regular basis. Only on occasion. I wash my face twice a day. I have tried it all. Everything you could imagine. I did go to the dermatologist a few years ago and they put me on proactive only to find out I did not work. I have not been back because they stay with me in the wrong direction and I didn’t want to spend my money. Hoping you can help me out.

    Hi Terra, acne is very common. Many of my patients ask me how to treat their acne. Here’s what I tell them. First, exfoliate every evening with a glycolic exfoliant. Second, use a spot treatment with salicylic acid. Then use a cleanser and a moisturizer. All products need to be oil-free or non-comedogenic. Seek the help of a dermatologist, who may suggest regular extractions, or accutane.
