I had bad acne throughout my teen years and my parents smoked all throughout my growing up. now top on working in the sunlight has made for some damaged skin. large pores, textured(looks like melted wax), discoloration and scars. Have tried a few things but nothing really works. Looking into to a TCA peel but not sure it would work on me. best options? Thanks.
