Hi You seem to be having adult acne. This acne is due to underlying lifestyle choices like smoking, stress, junk food intake and lack of exercise. Please change your diet and include plenty of fruits and vegetables. Avoid junk foods and exercise regularly. The treatment of adult acne is often oral retinol tablets. These give good improvement and even after tablets are stopped there are usually no recurrences. However they have to be taken under strict medical supervison. Please contact a dermatologist who can examine you and prescribe the appropriate skin care products and treatments
