Hi, I am new here and I need some advice.

I've been dealing with a super annoying stubborn breakout on my face (both my cheeks) for a little over a year now. My skin used to be clear and acne used to be not a big deal, I would keep it clean and leave it alone and it would eventually go away. Now thats not working anymore. Now Im getting stubborn acne that takes forever to go away and in its place it leaves behind these little dark red/brown marks that ALSO wont go away.

I've seen a derm, she said it was hormonal and gave me these toning pads, a prescription of Spironolactone, and some Tretinoin (%0.025). Well long story short, none of these has done anything for me. Ive been taking progress photos and honestly my acne looks way worse.

I am at a loss! My skin looks terrible and Im so worried Im going to be stuck with these constant breakouts and these stupid little marks for the rest of my life. Im also extremely worried if this is going to leave a bunch of scarring behind?

Below are the photos Ive been taking over the past couple of months. The photos in my post above are most recent. My acne definitely looks so much worse.

Looks like scarring is happening. You want to take care of this pronto.

Have you tried The Regimen yet? It usually works when nothing else does.

Also, try taking the quiz. You could try some lifestyle stuff too.
