Skin problems
I had some problems with my skin for a long tome and I thought that it will go away with age or if I will take some hormones. After getting some prescribed by doctor the problem went away a little but not fully I still had some acne on face and body but i was recommended by a friend to use some creams from american company. Their product are more like medication than regular cosmetics
And the prices are quite affordable. Worked for me.

I had the same problem when i was your age around 15, i was suggested about this american product Dermology acne cream ,which worked for me real fast, as i had also tried benzoyl peroxide and various others but dermology acne cream was the winner of all.

~I am a bit late for this post but I use a product called Aknicare, which works great for me! You can get the core products on prescription as well, so is definitely worth a shot Smile

My son had this problem for a couple of years until my friend recommended a facial serum from an american company to use. Now he is a happy boy.
