The key to choosing an acne treatment depends on the severity and type of acne. If you have had acne since a long time, it is likely that there is an underlying cause for the same which may need to be investigated. Superficial use of creams and facials can be a waste of time. Chemical peeling is a well known procedure, however it is not indicated in every case of acne especially those with hypersensitive skin. As the name suggests a chemical peel involves application of a chemical on the skin which causes the top layer of the skin to peel off allowing the underlying skin to regenerate. It is a moderately invasive line of treatment and is therefore to be done with caution to prevent any damage and scarring of the skin. After all, the goal in treating acne is not only to control the acne but also to promote a clearer and healthier skin. As your acne has been chronic, it is important for you to investigate your case thoroughly. If there is an underlying cause which remains untreated, no amount of peeling or external treatment is going to help. So you must avoid anymore use of chemicals or acids for peeling. In your case an all-round approach which treats acne internally as well externally may be appropriate. Till then add natural fruit based scrubs and peels in your regime to keep your skin pores clean.
