Question: I have started to wear Hijab for the past 4 months and I used to have bad acne as a teenager but it went away with good habits however i see now since the Hijab is constantly around my face it is irritating my skin and causing me to break out more and now i have many scars I am of marrying age and i do not want these scars to impede anything also im just curious if this continues do i keep it on? or take it off as a result of it disfiguring my face?
Answer:

Face veil is not an essential aspect of the modest attire prescribed by Islam for women. Therefore, there is absolutely no need for you to cover your face and hands. As long as you have dressed modestly, without exposing your head and the rest of the body, you are perfectly fine. For details, please consult the answers under the attached links.
