We see a doctor if we catch a normal cold, cough or fever but the idea of visiting a dermatologist frequently, for our skin problems is something we are not comfortable with.
 
Your acne may be getting worse by the month and your skin issues may be bothering you every week but you keep putting it away for later? Have you been ignoring your skin’s call? Well, you shouldn’t be! Do not try to cure your skin problems by visiting parlours that don’t do much for your skin.
 
Instead head to a trusted dermatologist if you experience these skin issues...

It could be because the skin products you are using aren’t working for your skin. In this case, see a dermatologist, he will know what to do.
