Have you tried any tretinoin or Curology? My maskne is gone. I don’t know anything about steamers but following

like

Seconding curology! In addition I do have a facial steamer but only use it about once a week or so (~self care Sundays~) primarily for relaxation. I definitely recommend curology if you’re looking for a one-stop shop to improve your skin.

Do you have a solid face routine that includes at least washing, moisturizing, and sunscreen? I would try this first for a month or so before buying an appliance that may or may not do anything. Faces and skin love routine!

I user a steamer as a part of my routine.
1. Wash 2. Exfoliate with brush 3. Rinse 4. Exfoliate with a light sugar charcoal scrub 5. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels 6. Steam 7. Pore extraction of need 8. Steam again 9. Tumeric mask 10. Moisturize with vitamin E oil and cucumbers green tea mist

I know it sounds like a lot but only do it twice a month and I SEE the results. Less acne, almost no new scaring, and old scaring is fading fast

a pore suction appliance.

Go to a dermatologist - I went a couple of weeks ago and she gave me a prescription for tretinoin & told me to get a facial to start clearing it up - it’s already visibly better

like

salicylic acid is going to be your best friend!! would also suggest looking at your food intake (reducing the common inflammation foods groups like sugar and dairy). Origins has a great Acne clearing mask called out of trouble. i’d say talk to a doctor before investing in any machinery tbh. they could say you a lot of time/money for changing steps in your routine instead of just buying a new step

Jordan Harper’s toning pads!

Have you considered an adapalene based product like the one la roche posay has? It has really cleared my skin up but can be drying if not done correctly. Very affordable too

I already do most of the above and have all kinds of good prescriptions but my skin just produces so much sebum it’s impossible to keep the pores empty!

Precleanse!! I’m my mid 20s and my skin was having so much under skin congestion and this has helped so much

Please advice on what we should do now.
