Acne Prone And Oily Face?
Hello doctor, I’m a 17-year-old teenager, I’ve watched my face the last 3 years, which is often spotty, even though I am diligent in treating my face. But my face is easily greasy. What is the solution?
Hello Ika, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Acne or acne vulgaris is a condition of blocked hair follicles and oils that manifest the appearance of spots or bumps on the skin. Not only because the face is not maintained, but acne can also be caused by other causes such as, excess oil production, bacterial infections, hormones, heredity, irritation, stress, drugs, cosmetics, and smoking.
The things you can do right now to deal with your oily face are:
Use a mild oil-free facial cleanser twice a day. Use water-based and oil-free cosmetic products Do not squeeze blackheads by using hands or non-sterile devices Using moisturizers and sunscreens that do not contain oil. Always take a shower after strenuous activities Clean up facial makeup before going to sleep. Avoiding stress Regular exercise Consuming nutritious, low-fat foods Do not smoke If this has been going on for a long time and disturbing your confidence, I suggest to immediately consult a dermatologist, so that a thorough examination can be carried out, such as questions and answers, physical examination of the skin , and additional examinations, such as laboratory tests of blood and ultrasound if necessary, so that treatment can be done according to your diagnosis.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully can help you.
