I’m currently 17 years old and have never had acne my entire life. My skin was relatively clear since I hit puberty all the way till I was 16. Moreover, the acne is only on my cheek area and I always get breakouts only on my cheek, sometimes up to 4 break outs on one cheek. I have blackheads on my cheeks and get whiteheads & pus-filled pimples too. I wash my face twice a day and I don’t put make-up. What could be the reason for this? This has been a struggle for me for so long and I really want to clear my face up.
Hi Sarxqq – the cheeks and T zone are actually one of the most common areas for acne to break out at. It’s also common to start getting acne around the ages of 17-21 – I should know! That’s the same age I started breaking out.
The best advise I can give you right now is DON’T POP THE ZITS. I have more than a few acne scars as a testament to itchy fingers in my younger days.
Be mindful that over washing your face can result in increased oil production and worsening your acne – twice a day, as long as it’s not with any overly harsh cleanser is fine.
To clear your face up, you can start by reading this article on acne treatment in Singapore I wrote some time ago about where I’d start with myself if I could turn back the clock.
