Closed comedones

Recommended Posts

I have been struggling with closed comedones on my cheeks and chin for over 8 months now, i have been to a dermatologist and was prescribed Aczone but it did not seem to do much after 2 1/2 months use. I used to have breakouts that were swollen and red but I used proactiv to clear them and was put on junel fe 1/20 birth control that seemed to work for two years. Lately it seems that nothing I do will work for these closed comedones, should I go off the pill and stop using proactiv? Or as anyone used a different product that worked?

For closed comedones I would use exfoliator 1-2 times a week, this will absorb dead skin and remove small bumps.
Also try to cut out oil from the food, excercise, and drink plenty of water. All this will open up the pores and lets the skin breathe.

There are many more things to do, just message me if you're curious

chemical exfoliants;

- clay mask with lavender or chamomile etc.
- Yoghurt mask (with honey or turmeric etc.)
