My acne has been improving a lot this summer. This is probably due to both time and sun exposure.
However, my skin still struggles with some issues. Every time i wash my face and look in the mirror i see areas on my face having layers of built up dead skin cells. Some of them is just the ordinary "dry skin" white cells, but some days i can also drag my fingernail carefully on my skin and i will have big yellow-ish flakes coming off. After i've removed those yellow flaky areas the skin underneath is red and raw... this has now become a bigger problem than my actual acne itself. I guess it's been like this for quite some time now, but i've been able to keep it under control with shaving every other day (it exfoliates). But lately it's just been too much. Only shaving doesn't cut it, i have to use a wet washcloth to drag it off (and a lot comes off).
Im really frustrated.. It wasn't like this before.. Not only do i have to emotinally worry about my acne, but i also have to keep this under control. It's just too much..
Do i have a skin condition or do i just need some exfoliation cream and moisturizer?
Please give me some input if you've been in a similar situation or might know something about it.. thank you
