Hello there!
Thank you for contacting us regarding your issue.

We understand you have been experiencing acne problems and you need advice regarding affordable skin care.

For your information, acne can be caused by several factors such as :

  • Excess oil production by the skin. This can be due to fluctuating hormones such as during menstruation and stress.
  • Clogged pores which can be the result of using certain skincare or makeup products.
  • Medications such as corticosteroids or lithium
  • Genetic factors

In order to give you an accurate treatment for your skin problems, we need further history from you to determine the severity of the acne. We encourage you to speak to our dermatologists regarding this issue so that we can help you further.

However, generally speaking, acne can be prevented by maintaining proper skin hygiene, on top of a balanced diet rich in nutrients. Using products that contain benzoic acid, salicylic acid, retinoids and benzoyl peroxide may help in the treatment of acne.

We hope our answer has been helpful. Thank you.
