    Sudden Cystic Acne Breakout HELP!
    An_252499 posted:
    I recently moved into my boyfriends place and ever since my face has broken out horribly. It hasn't been this bad since I was 16! I have a Dr.'s appt on Friday but does anyone have any advice on how I can calm the redness and maybe open my pores up? Thank you!
    Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
    Dear An,

    One tip to improve the redness immediately is to go purchase a concealer or foundation with a green tint. Green will help cover-up the red immediately.

    I would not do too many interventions until your doctor's appt tomorrow. You want your derm to see the primary problem and help you address it properly.

    I hope that helps

    Please don't worry about it. It remove in shortly. At first I suggest one thing is try Obagi. It is a very natural based product. It remove you redness between a couple of weeks. Obagi kits clear all your problem deeply and also reduce your death cells. That solves your acne break out problem.

    Your problem is quite common. Anytime it was happened that if you change your place skin problem are coming out. But you can get your clear skin back with igetadeal. Try obagi products. You can buy obagi with obagi discount . Obagi is very authentic and generic product for any kind of skin care problem.
