Thanks for writing.

Acne is due to hormonal disturbances in young age.

It requires prolonged treatment.Treatment depends on stage of acne.

You can start with a good cleansing lotion like cetaphil for washing face.Start applying clindamycin gel over affected area at day time.At night time you can apply benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel .Apply it only in small amounts.

Follow this for one month and let me know about response.

Darkness of hands and palms may be due to vitamin deficiency.Start taking multivitamin tablets .

Hope this will solve your problem.Take care.

thank you for using health care magic,
well for pimples wash your face three times per day to remove excess of oil.. avoid pollution.. avoid eating oily, spicy , fatty food..
you can take tablet isotretinoine 10 mg daily , doxycycline 100mg once a day for month. apply clindamycin or adapalene gel on face..consult dermatologist ..
well from your discription of your hand and leg skin it seems you have vitamin deficiency.. start taking multi vitamin tablets..
take care..
