Cardi B is turning to her fans for some skincare advice.

On Monday, the "Bodak Yellow" singer revealed that she's been struggling with "uncomfortable" breakouts and dry skin for the last few months.

"I need ya help tho....," Cardi, 28, began in a series of posts on Twitter. "I been breaking out lately and my face is extremely dry. I don't think these products are working. I think it's the water out here .....What are some good products for little black heads, break outs and dry skin on your face ?"

"This is my cheek ... It's been happening for like 3 months now ... S--- really is uncomfortable," she added in another tweet alongside a close-up snap of her skin, showing inflamed breakouts and clogged pores.

Fans started to reply, recommending skincare favorites like Cetaphil, CeraVe, and Clinique products. However, Cardi said that she'd tried them all, to no avail.

"It really don't work for me," she said the CeraVe cleansers and moisturizers.

She also said she bought "the whole package of Clinique" and that "it worked [a little] bit but still sometimes my face gets really dry and I'm breaking out on my chin."

The "Money" rapper then detailed how she had recently been to a dermatologist who recommended she try retinol but claimed the product made her face "burn" and dry out even more. Some fans pointed out that retinol has a "purging phase," but Cardi said she "don't got time for my face to do that."

"I did I said it in previous post. That gave me some s--- that dried my face more and make me get more [pores]," she said. "Thet said it will take 3 months but I don't got time for that and didn't give me a reason on why I'm breaking out. I never broke out on my cheeks and chin [before]."

Cardi later added that she wants "to go to a good dermatologist that do blood testing and everything. Get to the root of the problem but I don't know any."

Others started to recommend that the Grammy winner make an appointment with a Black esthetician, but Cardi claimed "there is NONE in LA. I know some in NY but I don't think I'm going home anytime soon."

Fellow singer Kehlani recommended New York-based esthetician Sean Garrette, and Cardi later told fans, "Ok @Kehlani recommended me somebody for my face ...Imma give ya a update in 2 weeks .....I'm off this for a while ...LOVE YA."

The "WAP" rapper also seemed to exchange tweets with Beverly Hills-based esthetician, Nai. The skincare expert offered to bring her equipment to Cardi's home for treatment.

"Girl I know LA is 'closed' but I will come to you! Got all my equipment ready to go!!" she told the singer.
