Cardi B opens up about her struggles with acne and begs fans for advice

Cardi B is hoping her fans can solve one of her biggest problems — acne.  The “WAP” rapper on Monday opened up about her recent breakouts that refuse to be tamed.

Cardi B, 28, took to Twitter in order to collect some serious skincare advice, telling her 16.6 million followers, “I been breaking out lately and my face is extremely dry.”

Revealing that she already sought the advice of a dermatologist, the singer continued, “I don’t think these products are working. I think it’s the water out here.”

Cardi revealed that she is currently in Los Angeles and that her breakouts went from annoying to downright “uncomfortable.”

“What are some good products for little black heads break outs and dry skin on your face,” she begged, adding that the products her previous dermatologist prescribed dried and burned her skin.

Several fans suggested over-the-counter products, to which the Grammy winner explained she already tried all of them, but the products weren’t potent enough.

She also revealed she tried using oils, but they made her skin “itch” and caused some adverse “reactions.” 

Cardi also explained her breakouts have been going on “for like 3 months now” and shared a recent picture of her cheek, showing the amount of red and itchy-looking welts on her skin.

The singer added in another tweet that she never had a problem with “my cheeks and chin” before, and that she is desperate to get her hands on something that’ll quickly clear up her face. 

After chatting with several skin experts and enthusiasts, Cardi provided one final update — revealing that fellow singer Kehlani hooked her with a promising contact who can potentially treat her uncontrollable breakouts.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper promised to give fans an update “in 2 weeks.”
