know that it's important to use a sunscreen nothing less than SPF50, 50 being the optimal point.

Apply moisturizer with aleovera content to get rid of dry skin. Eat fruits, avoid processed or junk food to lessen acne effect.

You have to take care of your skin from the inside. Usually the medication prescribed by the dermatologist has lots of side effect and it's not good for our body in the long run

I couldn't agree more. Too much medication can actually kills our body. I read about a recent study on a new discovery using a technology called deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator which has been found to help people who suffer from a poor skin condition whereby the treatment can be done at home by the patient himself. It sounds too good to be true but somehow it has many good reviews in its website.

Vinegar can help kill pathogens, including bacteria.
It has traditionally been used for cleaning and disinfecting too.
However, many of these applications have currently not been confirmed by research but you may try....

I would endorse you statement because health authorities like FDA have not yet approved them as a licensed remedy!

I think you definitely need to show yourselt to doctor. also, it's necessary to buy only qualitive and natural (ideally) sunscreens with max spf. I have very white skin and try to protect my face from sun as much as possible, that's why I prefer sunscreens for kids, they have maximum spf, I use 45. here is a discount I have found online, look there, it's mine, you can use it if you want. also, take some vitamins, like D, E and A to moisture the skin. and from acne the very variant is calendula, I clean my face every evening with it.

hi, have you tried tea tree oil for acne? Probably in your case if you have sensitive skin you should start from tea tree oil mixed with water 1/2. And change your cream brand, both sunscreen and moisturiser, it's obvious that your skin protests against old ones. Take care :)

Maybe you could try a simple skincare routine.
Sweet almond oil (paraben free) works great for me.
It is much cheaper via iHerb than in local stores.

You could use code HIN5488 to get 5% off all orders.

Apply this one take 1-2 drops tea tree oil and 1 teaspoon olive oil or jojoba oil. Mix the essential oil in the carrier oil. Apply a drop or two of the above-created oil mix on the affected area and leave it on.

Tea tree oil is a good suggestion.
I read that tea tree essential oil could be used undiluted, but personally do not recommend it.
Perhaps try over-the-counter/ drugstore ready mixed formulas to avoid 'burning' your skin.

I been battling with pimples and dry skin for quite some time already, been trying all kinds of aesthetic clinics, even went to TCM clinic, and also tried facials, but it just doesn't work to fully recover my skin. On and off I might have outbreaks again. Till when my facial therapist personally introduced me to a product which they did the R&D in Taiwan, and people that tried it has wonderful results. You can try to search for TST Tin's secret products. Cheers! :)

When it relates to acne, I do think it is better to seek dermatologist help. Reason is that the longer you wait, the longer the acne problem will persist, and the more acne scars you will have. Once acne scars formed, it is quite hard (and expensive) to get rid of them.
