Acne on my Cheeks
I need help on my acne. I don't have any pimples on my forehead or on my chin. But i have acne on my cheeks only. I don't wanna go to a doctor & try so many acne products that won't work on me or will make my acne break out even more. I'm using the Philosophy products as of right now. It's slowly disappearing but u can pretty see my acne & blemishes on my cheeks. Please tell me what will help my acne on my cheeks will go away? It's kinda embarrassing looking myself in the mirror with acne on my face. Thanks for your time reading this. I just need help ASAP.

If you already have an acne clearing regimen that you are using, I'd say stick to it if it seems to be working for you. I have not tried philosophy for acne so I cannot vouch for it. If you want fast result, I recommend Kate Sommerville ERADIKATE for spot treatment or new flareups at night. It dries up the pimple pretty much overnight. For acne scars, I suggest using an exfoliating moisturizer or serum at night like DDF 10% glycolic, Peter THomas Roth 10% glycolic moisturizer or M2 skin refinisher (not available in sephora) --this products might peel the face BUT the payoff after the peel is amazingly clear skin. Just be sure to use suncreen! Hope that helps...Goodluck
Are you using the Philosophy Clear Days Ahead kit? If so, I would just hang in there. How long have you been using the kit? If you're seeing progress, I don't see why you should seek additional help. It's when the products don't help that you should. If the progress stops after 2 months, then seek other treatment. I also heard that the Philosophy acne kit runs out rather quickly, so it may be best to purchase another kit after the first one just to track the progress. I hope this helps and good luck!
I also had acne on my cheeks, I did go to the doctor and they prescribed me retin a. It has helped a lot but what ALSO helped me was not wearing blush anymore. Blush broke me out like crazy!! Once I stopped, the breakouts stopped. If anything, buy a good blush that you find won't break you out and also buy a gentle brush that won't irritate your skin. Drink lots of water too, exercise daily and get a little sun!
