invisible bumps and breakouts
  I am 18 and very recently I've changed my skincare product to MURAD 
because I heard that it helps clear my skin. 
I did not have had breakouts or pimples. 
I do smoke, drink often but never had any trouble with my skin. 
 
I've been getting these bumps on my skin that are not visible but itchy and you can feel. 
Also Im having breakouts that will not go away with spot treatments. 
 
the breakouts are leaving scars that are very visible and my skin feels like i'm in high school 
again. 
 
my skin is combination of oily and dry .

Dear Esther,

It sounds like your skin might be having a reaction to the new product. We would recommend you to stop using it for a while and see if the problems with the bumps will alleviate.

If your skin is dry and at the same time oily, it means your skin is overly dehydrated and it is secreting sebum to moisturize the skin; which will often result in pimples. Therefore, we would recommend you to enforce hydration in your daily regime. Keeping your skin hydrated will help eliminate the oily shine you are experiencing.

When pimples start appearing, it means that your pores are clogged. We would recommend you to get in a habit to exfoliate your skin regularly (twice a week). UNT's EXFOLIANT uses enzymatic action to gently remove old skin layers from the surface of your skin, thus preventing dead skin cells from accumulating around pore openings. This would be a necessary step in keeping your face refreshed without dead skins blocking the pores.   

A daily regime should start with a gentle cleanser, such as NETTOYANT to wash away dirt and unwanted particles. NETTOYANG contains high dosage of amino-acids which hydrates and cleanses simultaneously. Unlike traditional facial soaps, NETTOYANT cleanses deeply but does not give you the uncomfortable, taunt feeling after the wash.
 
Then tone your face with D'ORIGINE HYDRATING TONER. This toner is high in hyaluronic acid concentration, which makes it potent of locking water molecules deep into skin layers, making the skin supple and in better condition to absorb skin-caring products that are to follow.
Apply EX WHITE 2. EX WHITE 2 is the best solution for dissolving pigment spots and inhibiting the activities of melanocytes (pigment-producing cells). EX WHITE 2 contains 3% high concentration of m-tranexamic acid, which is highly recognized by the medical community as an effective compound to reduce melanin.

Then follow with AQUA FORITS as your daily moisturizer. AQUA FORTIS deploys highly concentrated NASHA grade hyaluronic acid that locks water into the skin tissue favoring a self-regenerative process, making the skin feeling baby soft.

To prevent acne scars from darkening, we would recommend that you apply sun protection before sun exposure. We would recommend our UV ULTRA SPF50 as your main sun-block. Harmful UV rays are proven to be one of the biggest threats which speed up the rate at which skin ages, needless to mention other ways UV rays endanger our skin health (e.g. skin cancer). UNT's UV ULTRA combines advanced active ingredients such as Tinosorb S, Avobenzone, and Titanium dioxide, that delivers up to SPF 50 and PA+++ of UV protection. Moreover, UV ULTRA contains 2 powerful pigment-lightening ingredients -- m-Tranexamic acid and Ellagic acid. Both are highly recognized by the medical community as effective compounds to reduce melasma in long term skin care. Your skin is able to stay protected from the sun and thus free-radicals and oxidation, but also stay spot-free with UV Ultra’s melanin-reducing formula.

Please use the recommended products in the following sequence:
Day:
NETTOYANT>EXFOLIANT> D'ORIGINE HYDRATING TONER>EX WHITE 2>AQUA FORTIS>UV ULTRA SPF50/PA+++
Night:
NETTOYANT>EXFOLIANT>D'ORIGINE HYDRATING TONER>EX WHITE 2>AQUA FORTIS
