This cycle goes on and on so whenever my scars/pimples seem to be clearing well and fading, bam I am hit with another breakout, usually at my cheek area/the sides of my face. That's where I usually get my pimples, unfortunately, since they are so obvious! I have a feeling it's hormonal but my best-skin days are actually days near/during my period. Is that normal?
It's sooo frustrating and I get really upset because my breakouts give me sore pimples that look bumpy and I resemble a potato. No joke. (texture wise I mean, I still keep my limbs)
Is there anything I can do to manage this so I don't keep breaking out regularly, which can allow my skin to heal. It seems to heal pretty fast right after the peak of my breakout but kinda reaches a plateau right before my next breakout.
Any suggestions are really welcome!
Thanks in advance!
Edit: Just some background on me, I've been suffering from moderate acne since I was 13 but it has become much milder in these couple of years. It was really horrible because I would pick at my skin, leaving red/brown marks which remain long after the pimple is gone. As a result, i've become really self conscious and lost most of my confidence. Acne really sucks as a childhood(hopefully not going to adulthood!) friend. Thank goodness I'm glad to say that my marks are not a bad and extensive as before though they are still pretty obvious.
