As Ive gotten older, the amount of acne I have has gotten better, probably in part to taking birth control. But now, after being clear of huge red pimples for a while, Im getting these under the surface sort of whiteheads. How do I get rid of them?
Seeking advice from a naturopath would be highly advisable. There's certain foods that increase inflammation (like citrus) that you can eliminate from your diet for awhile. Also, homeopathic remedies are available that work wonders. Find a reputable physician in your area. This type of acne is very internal. Even if you find a topical treatment that works some, you'll still be plagued with continued breakouts. Also, be aware that 100% pure tea tree oil is very strong and drying - use sparingly or, better yet, dilute it with your face lotion.
