Hello! I put this under the hyper pigmentation log but I don't really know. It's more of tracking my acne and stuff, heck, I don't even know if they are acne or hyperpigmentation but I'll just go with it.
My skin type: dry to oily combo? I'm dry in cold weathers but oily under the sun or warm weather. At night before I sleep I'm not so dry I applied moisturizer which contains jojoba oil & 1 more oil I forgot but it's from MUJI store. But when I wakeup im still oily...
morning: wash face w lukewarm water OR Organic honey & use Stridex pads to tone (2.0% salicylic acid), done. (Previously I use Acv in morning and Stridex at night but today, on the right side of the picture, I'm using Stridex now in morning and will use acv at night to see if there's gonna be any difference)
night: OCM (coconut oil), acv toner, tea tree oil for spot treatment, done
plesse let me know if there are any improvements, I just wanna see some progress
note/ I'm taking zinc picolinate every other day & vitamin A/D3 on some days that I didn't have sufficient nutrition
Hi, so for a long time I've been on this site sometimes in tears trying to find something or read reviews on something that could "Help" my acne. But I never made a profile until now, because I need help haha. I hate my acne so much to the point where I've not gone out, skipped holiday events, skipped so much. I don't take pictures with my friends ever, I don't post selfies anymore either lol. It makes me so depressed, i feel like everyone looks at me, I feel so so so ugly because of it, that people won't talk to me because it's so gross, I feel like I look like a disappointment. My family looks at me different, not kidding. I feel so disgusting. And I've tried EVERYTHING
Yes I don't stick to products or remedies for long because I want something to work fast, and when i try new products or remedies I get false hope.
BUT here is my little story
Neither of my parents had bad acne
My sister doesn't have acne.
I don't think any of my family did.
My skin like the rest of them was so nice, I had a baby face in 7th and 8th no pimples, and normal soft skin. Although blackheads were on my chin and when my mom was alive she always wanted me to steam my face so she could take them out, because she said they were gross hated them lol.
9th grade a pimple here or there, but I would freak over it because i wanted clear skin. So i would do all this shit to my face to be pimple free, and I was told the more you mess around with your face the worse it'll get.
WELL I guess so, but the pimples would go away some others would pop up, but compared to know those were literally nothing at all, nobody would point them out, and they were small and not noticeable on android quality cameras.
10th grade I starting getting worse with trying to be a perfectionist, and started putting myself down for every little imperfection on my body, yes I guess I had some body acne, but not bad, but the skin on my body was always dry in the winter. But I would never apply lotion because I did not wanna make it worse, I figured apply lotion would make anything on my body worse (acne)
I think i really stressed myself out bad to be "perfect" I made myself miserable, not a minute went by where I wasn't thinking about it, I literally became psychotic about it. Still to this day in 11th grade now, my acne has now been blown up everywhere, and severe and awful and UGH SO SO SO bad now. I've tried a lot of products and remedies, literally everything. Name something, bet you I have tried it ahaha. I neveer stick to something for more than like 3 weeks lol that might be my problem, but please help, what do I do and what is wrong with my face whats going on ahah LOOK AT THIS SHIT, IT MAKES ME CRY, TEARS IN MY EYES CURRENTLY
p.s my face gets oily, but sometimes dry, sometimes normal. HELP
Currently I am on a regimen of Adapalene .3% every morning after I wash my face with Neutrogena gentle sensitive skin face wash. Then i pat dry and put on Neutrogena sensitive skin moisturizer. I am taking 100 mg doxycycline hyclate twice a day. At night i wash my face with the same wash and pat dry. Then i put on Clindamycin, Benzoyl Peroxide : Topical gel( 1.2-5 %). Then i add the same moisturizer. My acne has lessened, but i am wondering what to do for my post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. I usually wear sunscreen, even in the winter. I feel as though it is not making any progress. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Chronological pictures showcasing my skin's healing of marks and shallow scarring (shallow scarring not very noticeable in the pictures) - begins with pictures of red marks that had already been fading since about May 2011.
I finally completed by acne era.... After resorting to roaccutane.....but I was left with lots of dark acne pigmentation scars. I tried everything..... Until I had Dermamelan mask! On gosh cannot explain ... It's miracle in a jar!

about 5 months ago my very mild acne started to got worse .....now i have a lot of red marks and a few little scars, the worst side is the right one. I don't know if they're going to fade and when, I've got them for the past 4 months or more...also, I have sensitive skin and dermatitis, suddenly my skin got very strange. I am now on oral antibiotics + topical antibiotics and tretinoin. I also have acne on my back :( Do you think these marks will go away? what can I do? thanks:)
This is my acne which I've been battling since the age of 9, yes 9. This will show my acne at it's harshest and calmest. Please do bare in mind that this has taken me great courage to reveal my face like this; however, I feel as I upload these pictures I feel a sense of reassurance; somehow/
After using the regimen for a month and a half I'm still left with some hyperpigmentation. I had mild acne and in these pictures I'm completely clear except for one tiny little pimple. I think my hyperpigmentation is pretty noticeable and it does bother me so any comments on how to fade them would be great!
