Hello Ismira, Thank you for the question.
Acne is a skin problem that can occur to anyone. Acne occurs because hair follicles / pores are blocked by skin oil / sebum and dead skin cells, which are followed by bacterial infections. Acne usually occurs due to a combination of a number of factors such as hormonal changes, heredity, skin friction with objects, improper use of care products or cosmetics, high levels of stress, side effects of drug consumption, and smoking habits. Acne can appear in several forms from whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. Not infrequently, acne-affected skin will form acne scars when acne is healed. To deal with acne depends on the form of acne that you experience. If it is a nodule or cyst, this condition should be treated by a dermatologist. However, if it's still in a mild form, you can try using a cream / gel that contains benzoyl peroxide. This cream or gel can help reduce inflammation and kill bacteria that cause acne. You need to know that the treatment of acne requires a short time, a minimum of several weeks. Thus you cannot expect instant results. In your case, try to look for the care products or cosmetics that you are using, there may be products that are not suitable that cause irritation or allergies to you (because you complain of itching on your face).
In addition, you are also encouraged to make the following recommendations:
cleanse the face with a gentle facial cleanser that contains no fragrance and does not foam
clean the face of cosmetics before going to bed
avoid using thick cosmetics
choose skin care products and cosmetics that are water-based
avoid friction with facial skin such as a helmet
manage stress well
If this complaint does not go away, please consult with a dermatologist for further examination and treatment, including the problem of acne scars that you are experiencing. If the acne scars are still in the form of changes in skin color, generally this condition can still be overcome by using a cream. However, if it has been in the form of changes in skin shape, then the doctor will suggest other measures such as microdermabrasion or laser.
I hope this helps.
