    I'm male and I wanted to get light acne off my face and just some tiny spots along with a few freckles.

    What do you advise I should do? Get a skin peel? Are skin peels effective? Should I get laser treatment? What products do you advise to wash my face with so my skin feels soft and looks more clear as oppose to having spots and being rough.

    No fried food for you !

    Get a face wash that will not dry your skin and a mask that can deep clean your pores. Peels can be quite harsh I would avoid on the first get go.

    If your acne is really really serious then yes to laser otherwise why go through something unnecessarily expensive.

    Message me I can give you a few suggestions.

    It's usually a bit more difficult than just getting a one off skin peel and all your spots disappearing. I'd suggest getting a face wash/cleanser with witch hazel or tea tree oil as these are good for fighting acne. A good moisturiser is also important because these will dry out your skin. Then I'd also get an acne treatment cream like Benzoyl peroxide. It comes in 2.5%, 5% or 10%. 10% is the strongest but most drying.

    Cleanser -> Toner -> Moisturiser -> Acne Treatment

    You can skip out the toner if you want, but it is there to even out your skin.

    If i was you i'd goto the GP and seek expert help, btw the GP has told me diet does not affect acne and is more to do with hormones. Ask to be referred to a skin specialist and they'll sort you out, theres no point doing something you may regret.

    Diet affects hormones though, the amount of fat you eat, the genetically modified foods, the meat pumped with estrogen, same with milk. It may help some people. It definitely did for me.

    Ive had 2 skin peels for my acne at Therapie Clinic on Lothian Road in Edinburgh. My skin is sooo much better for it, I started using the products they suggested which are cosmecutical and they are making a massive difference, Id 100% reccomend them. I got them on offer 3 for 2 so you get 3 peels for £150
