If you haven’t already, go see a dermatologist. Just from this thread, you can see that the triggers for each person can be different. A dermatologist can help you much more efficiently than trial and error of expensive products. That’s what I did and my cystic chin acne cleared up with my doctor’s help.

I do not get horrible acne but I found this skincare brand that is amazing! I have oily skin and it has definitely helped my overall complexion and lessoned breakouts. Dr zo medical. Kind of expensive but worth every penny.

My acne is pretty much only on my chin but it’s the nasty cystic ones that are painful and scar. My derm basically laid out the options and let me pick what I wanted to do. They aren’t kidding about the side effects though

Dermatologist and birth control didn’t work for me, less gluten, more veggies, exercise and water help, but what made my skin nice enough for me to feel confiedent without makeup for the first time is COLLAGEN! I put a scoop in my water 4-5 days a week and the results are crazy. I stopped it for a week and completely broke out and had dull skin.

Definitely head to a dermatologist - ask what ingredients work best to help soothe skin and keep acne away (lactic acid, sulphur, AHAs)

Thank you so much! :)

Go to a gynecologist! I had cystic acne and turned out it was PCOS. Birth control helped a ton.

Interesting. I should try that

And I’m a dude, so birth control probably won’t work :)

My dermatologist recommended an antibacterial that has worked wonders for me!

Thank you so much! Much love

On accutane now to try to fix and seeing slow results

Did you have a lot of acne, A1, to use accurate? My dermatologist recommended it to even for my mild acne?

Also - any initial reactions to it?

I was part of Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd.
The HR relationship manager was Deepa Vishwanathan. I resigned in May two years back and last working day was in Aug after serving three months notice.
However, due to error on human resource part they updated record as last working date in May. So whenever I was applying for any position there was mismatch in last working day mentioned in my resume and in human resource records with Kotak. Does it have impact on my profile not getting shortlisted?
