I am a 33 year old female. I have acne on my face. After delivery, I put on weight (74 kg) and today I am 66 kg. I have used hormonal tablets for six months till February due to periods problem. Now, I am not using any tablets and my periods are regular. Almost for four months, I am facing acne problem. My skin also looks so dull and dead. Please suggest.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Do not worry. Acne in your case is due to the hormonal changes which occurred due to the medicines you took in February and due to childbirth. But, just relax, it may take some time, like up to four months, but it will be fine.
Apply Skinoren cream (Azelaic acid) in very little amount only on the pimple or dark spots only at night. Take very little amount. You will experience slight peeling of your skin but do not panic. The pimples will be dried off and the superficial layer will be removed.
Use Cetaphil cleanser. Use for three weeks.
