Hello, my name is Elizabeth, 15 years old. I am spotty, then pores open, acne scars turn red, especially on the cheeks. In the past, my face was white, so now it looks dull, why? My friend recommends using eucalyptus oil so that the pimples flatten, is it wrong not if I use oil you are white? Thanks.
Hello Elizabeth, Thank you for the question.
Acne is indeed one of the most common skin health problems that can be experienced by anyone. Not infrequently people will do everything they can to resolve this problem. Acne occurs when hair follicles / skin pores are clogged by piles of skin oil / sebum and dead skin cells that are followed by infection by bacteria on the skin. This causes inflammation so that small bumps appear on the skin. At puberty, hormone levels in the body play an important role in the occurrence of acne. Acne that appears even in severity varies from whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts.
The use of eucalyptus oil is not a recommended treatment for treating acne. The use of these products has the potential to worsen inflammation in your zits. To deal with acne, you need to remember, that it takes a long time and the consistency of treatment is needed. The average acne treatment takes a few weeks before showing optimal results. You can try using a cream / gel that contains benzoyl peroxide. This content serves to overcome the bacteria that cause acne and reduce comeded and inflammation of the skin. This cream / gel needs to be used for 6 weeks before showing the expected results.
In addition, you are also advised to take the following recommendations to help deal with acne:
clean your face with a mild and mild facial cleansing soap
avoid using thick cosmetics
use cosmetics and water-based skin care products
clean the face of cosmetics before going to bed
consume balanced nutritious food
manage stress well
clean the face after heavy activity
avoid using products that are not registered with BPOM so as not to worsen the condition of your body
A dull looking face is usually caused by hormonal factors that cause an increase in the amount of skin oil production, air factors, the use of cosmetic products, and poorly maintained facial skin hygiene. To overcome a dull face, you can try the following suggestions:
use a non-scented, non-foaming facial cleansing soap
wash your face with cold water
rubbing the face for two minutes
Limit the use of facial tissue which can cause irritation
use sunscreen especially if outdoor activities
Do not hesitate to consult a dermatologist if your acne condition does not improve after trying the methods above or the condition is very disturbing. The doctor will examine your skin to assess its severity and determine further treatment. Hopefully this information is useful.
