Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Cause of acne can be (in this case) hormonal, stress, and disturbed sleep patterns. Anti-depressants drug side effects are pimples, bacterial infection (propionibacteria), obstruction of the pilosebaceous duct (follicular plugging), excess sebum secretion.

So avoid stress. Avoid late night sleep. Exercise regularly. Reduce anxiety, stress, and reduce use of drugs. Do meditation and yoga. Wash face regularly twice a day. Kojic cream at night for 20 days (on dark circles). Drink lots of water. Sleep well.
