Dear Sagar

Wash your face regularly, if possible with soap
Wearing a helmet is good, however the humidity inside the helmet might worsen your problem
You can try a salicylic acid based face wash too
try benzoyl peroxide on the pimples that appear twice daily

All the best

hi, i used to get pimples when I was 16 and I am 24 now and still get them though the number of pimples has decreased since then and I have few pimples in cheeks and tend to get some pimples in forehead sometimes. I also have blackheads in my nose. I have consulted 3 dermatologist so far and followed their medications but the results are not that satisfying. I saw changes when I started using glintra gel, aziderm cream and chemical peeling (SM peel, Vedaderm) in every 15 days. I noticed that all my pimples were gone after I did chemical peeling 6 times but after I stopped doing that peeling or I dont know what is the reason, I am getting pimples. When I said about this to my dermatologiet, He said that I have to do peeling forever and I dont want to do this and it is quite expensive too. I want to have my pimples and blackheads in my nose removed permanently. Please suggest that helps to remove pimples permanently.
