I have lot of acne due to lot of large pores which eventually cause acne. They never seem to stop. I am using Acnil soap, also going for a clean up session in 15 days which is in a parlor for exfoliating. I also apply XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Kantilep, but at the end all is in vain. Please help me.

Welcome to healthcare magic forum.
Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern regarding acne.
Hormonal changes, heredity, medicine, stress are common causes of acne in your age groups.
We have to find out the reason for it. In most case hormonal changes is the main reason.
You have applied some ayurvedic medicine. They are good but in some case they do not work.
You need to consult dermatologist for it. By proper examination dermatologist will prescribe you medicine depend upon the cause and stage.
I would like to give following suggestion for acne,
- Avoid stress and do regular exercise and yoga.
- Avoid applying oily cosmetic product on face. you can apply oil free and non comedogenic product.
- Drink plenty of water a day.
- Take more fruits and green vegetables, avoid junk food.
- Please do not pick or scratch the lesion.
- Use gentle cleanser for face wash like cetaphil cleansing lotion.
- Use gel base sun screen only, not lotion base.
- You can use clindamycin gel over acne two times a day.
- You may require some oral medicine like antibiotic and hormones, which will be prescribed by dermatologist only.
- Skin peeling, microdermabrasion, Laser and IPL base treatment will also help you

I hope I answered your question.
Let me know If you have further query.
