Okay. So I'm in high school (14 years old) and yeah. It's a private one, so everyone is rich enough to get facials and expensive products.
I'm asian, so I get a lot of pigmentation. I get bullied (talked about) a lot and it's kinda annoying. People saying 'wash your face' and stuff like that.
I've been trying so many products, but they don't seem to work much.
Any ideas?
Please? :(

Check out my log - you can compare how good your skin is compared to mine :P

 

 

Anyways, what medications are you using? Have you met with a dermatologist yet?

xD your skin did seem to be worse, but now it's so much better! 
how did you even do that? biggrin.png


I'm not using any medicine of some sort. I haven't seen any dermatologists yet.

I've been using several cleansers and toners and moisturisers. None of them seemed to have worked. Are there any tips
to preventing acne and healing scars? I keep getting them and I can't seem to find why. :/

School is coming up in about 3 days, so any tips?

You should definitely see a dermatologist ASAP - they'll most likely put you on antibiotics and topical medications that at will help with acne breakouts and scars.

 

I would say stick with ONE cleanser/moisturizer that works best for you..for me it's CeraVe foaming facial cleanser/Cerave and Cetaphil moisturizer. Also, there's no need for a toner...I found that it dried out my skin even more and burned, causing more breakouts.
