Hi lybrate-user, sorry to hear about your lack of improvement with the acne you have been suffering. There are plenty of factors to the acne your suffering. So if one type of treatment does not work, the you have to look for other underlying causes, like a pcos hormone profile. These blood tests rule out a hormonal cause of the acne. If not you could start with medications or do acne peels.

It is important to assess the severity and level of sundamage before choosing a treatment. The damage can be superficial/deep/mixed. Get yourself assessed by a specialist for a specific treatment (peels/laser/dermabrasion/medicines). A sunscreen is a must throughout the year with spf 30 or above. It has to be applied twice daily (morning and noon) atleast 20 mins before stepping out in sun. Use sunshades as glasses/umbrella (black). Hydrate yourself in this season for your skin to glow.

It is due to the ever growing problem of Acne and pimples that lead to the flooding of creams, lotions and face washes in the market to heal and cure Acne and pimples. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation.

Hello everyone. The sunlight allergy or sunburn is a common problem and it is very easy to prevent with application of sunscreen on all exposed parts like face, neck, lips, eyelids, hands. Minimum spf (sun protective factor) should be 30 for indian skin. Usually one coat of sunscreen will protect your skin for maximum 3 to 4 hours. If you r a outdoor worker, it is better to apply fresh coat of sunscreen every three to four hours. You should use broad brimmed caps and hats. You can also use umbrellas and full sleeved dress. Having nutritious diet and plenty of fluid everyday is also very important for good immunity.
