I was wondering if someone can help me.
I have bumpy skin and an uneven complexion with blotches from previous acne issues.
Please help, I always wear makeup to have an even skin tone.

Hello,From your description you have a mild post acne problem which could be related to earlier treatment with local applications, which though cure the problem are sometimes harsh on the skin.
Also post acne scars and pigmentation are other issues,apart from photo damage which is quite common.
Being a minor problem you may not need chemical peels.A sunscreen lotion in the morning,a moisturizer at bedtime may be all that you may need.A course of Bcarotene capsules,or as fruit suppliment also may be of great help.
