Facial Spots!

January 14, 2007 6:21am CST
I am 27 years old and all through my teens, I never once suffered from acne/blackheads. Yet now, every couple of weeks or so, I wake up looking like a dot-to-dot puzzle! I've always had really nice skin, but now I'm not sure what to do, how to get rid of the spots, and how to get my nice skin back! Help!!!

You could be suffering from stress or excessive worrying which causes pimples to appear. Besides getting enough sleep and drinking 8 glasses of water a day, use a sensitive skin cleanser and gently use a loofa over your blackheads. If you have acne, dont loofa, just wash your face with your hands and pat dry.

Thanks for your response, I think you are right about the cause, I have had extra worries lately (mainly debt after Christmas!). Thanks for the advice, I'll give it a try.

Glad to see you have reached puberty. LOL jk. Stress combined with poor sleep habits and diet are more than likely the cause. Take care of yourself, you have kids. You can't take care of them if you don't care of yourself first. THE HEALTHIER YOU ARE... THE HEALTHIER YOUR CHILDREN.

Clinically known as hyper-pigmentation, brown sunspots and uneven skin tone are caused by erratic melanin – as if our lives weren’t erratic enough already – and can cause skin to look splotchy and dark. This occurs when melanin, the pigment that colors our skin, becomes unstable due to sun damage and rises to the surface of the skin. Sun block is essential to keep this damage from occurring. There are available options to repair past damage, including topical pharmaceutical creams, procedures to freeze off damaged spots, or laser treatments. Your dermatologist can recommend the best treatment option for you.
