I'm 28. The skin on my face has recovered from severe acne. My face looks now sort of swollen and tired (saggy skin). Is this common ? What can I do ?

In brief: Can happen

At your age your skin should not be as you describe.
If you have just finished a course of harsh therapy, transiently the skin can look as you say but usually the dermatologist gives you medication that counters what you describe. You need to go back to your dermatologist for treatment. Gentle topical steroid cream could be helpful.
