acne

My skin started flaring up in my mid twenties accompanied my constant stomach aches In the morning. I was a vape smoker and drank coffee every morning and started my skin to go downhill. I drank enough water but started to get random pimples on my face, and eventually spread all over and now from picking, I have hyperpigmentation marks and they look HORRIBLE, I’m seeing an online dermatologist from agency but not sure that my skin is changing too much, it’s been over a month and my skin still fluctuates and gets pustules. I also have a lot of blackheads on my cheeks and I exfoliate very well, but don’t want to over exfoliate because of my acne, what should I do?!

First and foremost, have you changed your lifestyle since? Considering stomach pains, it could be likely that your skin is unhappy because your body is unhappy. Topical treatments won't be able to fix that. It may also be caused by hormonal imbalance as the area affected is around the jawline. Which again, can be caused by your lifestyle. These are just my guesses. A good place to start would be a balanced varied diet. Exercise can be great too. I would go for a gentle skincare routine and only do chemical exfoliation up to 2x a week. But your dermatologist will be able to give you more professional tips!
