Greetings! Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your acne problem. For your information, Diane-35 consists of cyproterone + ethinylestradiol and it is available in Malaysia. However, we greatly suggest you to consult a doctor first to identify the cause of your problem in order to have the correct treatment. Besides, facial acne breakouts are caused by blocked pores which can be blocked by oil, dead skin, or a bacterial infection. They can be driven by several factors which includes:

  • Excess oil production on sebaceous glands or excessive consumption of oily food (fried in particular).
  • Clogged hair follicles by oil or dead skin.
  • Poor facial hygiene which cause bacterial infection
  • Hormonal factors: excessive secretion of androgens.

We suggest you to do the following:

  • Prevent eating fried food, refined sugars, and fast food.
  • Maintain good facial and general hygiene
  • Clean your bedsheets, towels and anything that comes in frequent contact with your face
  • Prevent spicy food
  • Stay hydrated and moisturize your face sufficiently.

Get that perfect skin with the right skin care.

Thus, we also suggest you to speak with a dermatologist to have a better point of view about your acne condition and its treatment.
