  1. Hello
    Welcome to MediMetry.
    I can understand your concern.

    Causes of acne-
    1. Acne is mainly driven by male hormones, which usually become active during the teenage years. Sensitivity to such hormones, combined with surface ( skin) bacteria and lipids (fatty acids) within sebaceous (oil) glands, cause acne.
    2. Air pollution and certain weather conditions, especially high humidity

    Tips to cure acne:

    1. Only wash areas of the skin affected by acne twice a day. Too frequent washing may irritate the skin making the symptoms worse.
    2. Use a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water. Water that's too hot or cold water can make acne worse.
    3. Don't squeeze the spots or try to clean out blackheads. This can make things worse or lead to scars.
    4. Don't use too much make-up or cosmetics. Non-comedogenic water-based products are designed to reduce the risk of blocking pores.
    5. Use a water-based emollient that's fragrance-free for any dry skin.
    6. Shower after a workout or exercise to stop sweat irritating acne.
    7. Regular hair washing and keeping hair off the face can also help.
    8. Benzoyl peroxide cream helps prevent dead skin blocking follicles and kills bacteria on the skin
