Cheeks



The lighting is really bad but I have been breaking out really bad on my cheeks with these small bumps. I don't know what to do! Please help! I wash with benzole peroxide and sylicylic acid (2 washes) and use a prescribed cream but nothing seems to be working. It's so frustrating!

What do I do!?

These bumps are usually caused by oil trapped under the skin. If you are feeling impatient, which trust me I understand, you could try opening your pores with a rosemary steam. It should help bring the pimples to a head and you can then drain them. Don't pop the with your fingers though. Use a pore extractor so that you don't get scars. Once the pore is open, you can apply your reguallar acne treatment to kill any bacteria that may be hiding out.

Thanks so much! How do I make a Rosemary steam? Also, even if I do wait (which I am super impatient) would they have to be extracted anyway? I never had anything on my cheeks before and not sure why my skin is purging like this
