If you're having a hard time getting your breakouts under control, it's probably time to consult a dermatologist for further treatment. They can prescribe you prescription-strength creams or oral medications that are stronger than what we're talking about above.
"You shouldn't only see a dermatologist when things are serious," Nazarian says. "If you come in once a year, that should be a minimum because that's a basic screening. You can do so much more to protect your skin if you attend your dermatologist more often."
So check in with them if you feel like your daily routine isn't working, if your skin has gotten worse recently, or if you're just looking for some best skincare practices. They know what they're talking about, and your skin will thank them.
