Hello, as it is not really possible to visit a doctor during the corona outbreak I am asking you all for help. My acne is really agressive and I can not find the cause. I tried using cannabis cream and antibacterial gel but nothing really helped. :(

I don’t want to sound like an arse but I feel like if you have that much acne over such a large area it really seems like the culprit is something that’s happening inside your body. So I’m not too sure how effective a topical product will be for you.

I would say try to find products with Niacinamide, Retinol, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Glycolic Acid, and Lactic Acid.

Those are really going to be the most effective ingredients in fading acne scars, exfoliating deep within your skin without being too abrasive, preventing acne and just generally getting rid of your acne.

Also you really will want to moisturize if you use any products with the ingredients above bc they can dry out your skin. If your skin is becoming overly dry it can cause more acne since your skin will be working overtime to create sebum. So definitely definitely moisturize. Finding a moisturizer with water as the first ingredient is really great. Avoid moisturizers with alcohol as the 3rd, 4th, 5th ingredient. It won’t effectively moisturize your skin. Also Glycerin is a really good ingredient to have in a moisturizer. So is Hyaluronic Acid and Ceramides.

A lot of people like the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration, I think it also goes by the name Intense Therapy. I can’t vouch for the ingredients but a lot of people have had a positive experience with that product. I also haven’t used it ever.

Also salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are good but are a hit and miss for a lot of people.
