Question: I am a 40 years old female and I still have acne on my face. How can I stop this?
Answered by Dr. Rahul Kumar 59 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Use tea tree oil face wash

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Acne usually subsides by the age of 25 but can persist even longer.
The main problem is blockage of sebaceous glands.
Keeping these glands open will help you.
Do the following
1. Wash your face three times a day with tea tree oil face wash.
2. Use adapalene gel in night and clindamycin gel in day.
This should help you.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
