Learn tried-and-true techniques to getting younger-looking skin with our step-by-step guide
Shamban says that African American and Latino skin is more likely to scar or keloid (a type of raised scar tissue), "meaning acne prevention and immediate treatment are imperative." You don't need a doctor to tell you there's really no way to eliminate stress entirely. However, there are some lifestyle changes and at-home treatments that can help.
First, Shamban asserts that you need to break bad habits. While it may be tempting, she says picking at breakouts leads to scarring and more acne because "you are spreading the bacteria and infected material." Second, Shamban recommends trying a low-glycemic diet -- this means staying away from white breads and sugars for a few months in order to see improvement.
To treat existing acne, Shamban recommends at-home electronic cleansing devices and products that contain alpha hydroxy acids or retinoids.
