Hey! :wave: Let my start off by saying that I haven't the slightest clue about "acne" because I'm very new to it. To be honest, I don't even know if I have acne, or if I just go through weird phases of pimples...? :confused:

1.) How many pimples is considered acne? I ask because for 2 or 3 months, I'll go through a phase where I have ZERO pimples, but then for a few weeks, I'll completely break out with 10 or 20 at a time. And it's always on my cheeks, so part of me wonders if it's due to a hair product or hairspray that splashes on my face.

2.) I'm really sick of getting pimples -- they're a hassel and I'm always worried about covering them up/can you see them/will it scar, etc., etc. SO, if I use a product like Proactiv (which I used once before for like a week and it cleared up my skin) everyday... not just when I'm breaking out... will that give me acne. Or when I stop using it, will my skin be worse than when I originally started?

3.) Does this sound like a problem that I need to go to a dermatologist over? I know that it's really pretty minor, but it's frustrating for those few weeks every few months...

Thanks so much if you can give me any advice!!! :wave: :D
