Suggestions for controlling acne

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to healthcare Magic.
Acne is due to your adolescent hormones and you will continue to have it till that hormonal influence is over. It might be 28 yrs or 30 yrs or even 32.
Wash your face with a pH balanced face wash, preferably a one containing 1-2% salicylic acid. You may apply a gel containing clindamycin 1% in the morning over pimples and Benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel at night over pimple prone areas. Get these prescribed by your doctor.
Once new pimples stop marks will go in a months time. So treating the active pimples is the best way of treating pimple marks as well.You may approach a dermatologist practicing cosmetology for a procedure called chemical peels for acne, pimple marks and pigmentation.
Avoid creams on your face. Avoid oil on your scalp. Diet is important. Avoid milk and milk products like cheese, chocolates, sweets, sugary foods and drinks. Eat a lot of fruits rich in vitamin A (anything with lot of color)

Hope this helped
Take care
