Topical treatment will only do so much if anything at all. For most adults, topical treatment does nothing and actually makes acne worse because it is disrupting the natural oil balance and ph of our skin. When we clean and scrub too much, we break out even more because the skin produces even more oil to compensate for the oil taken away during cleansing. Adult acne is different than teen acne. It is more of an internal issue than external. I have suffered many years of acne on my body, and I promise you addressing it internally will give you promising results. I know it is a daily emotional battle going through this. You are not alone with your pain.
