starting using regimen 11/4/16 and what my skin looks like now.my skin has never looked like this before so initially I was even more stressed and depressed because of it. I got over it and loved myself however my skin looked and just learned to be patient with the process and journey back to the skin im used to having. I'm not sure exactly what made my skin breakout so bad.my forehead stays pretty clear and smooth. I may get one breakout but it goes away pretty fast. my guess would be stress/ hormones and also I noticed my skin first start to breakout with cystic acne about a week after I tried the charcoal and palmers glue mask to get out small blackheads I had.(big mistake). I still get breakouts but not as bad as it was. I mostly have a lot of hyperpigmentation. also, I have tried natural face mask a couple days out of the week. one being cinnamon and egg. which seemed like its helping with the spots. and it doesn't irritate my skin. Just be sure not to use a lot of cinnamon. I use one whole egg and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.
I have listed the photos from beginning to now!
HELP! Can someone identify what these are and what would be the most suitable regimen for treating these?
Hi. I,m 23 and had absolutely spotless skin before Jan 2016 (no breakouts even in teenage). Fast forward, due to relationship problems and financial struggles during this year, my break out kept on getting worse. I NEVER had a simple pimple on my cheeks and now they are spectacularly marked. I tried lemon juice, honey, apple cider vinegar, egg whites, aloe vera, cucumber at different times- you name it. I also used Avene anti redness cream and cortisone topical cream because the horrible red patches on my cheeks look very unpleasant. All of these helped but only temporarily.
I must add that the situation was a lot worse with recurring white heads and redness in the T zone and on the cheeks but at least now the T zone is cleared but the redness and the recurring whiteheads on the cheeks still remain.
Can someone please clarify the following?
1) whether the same type of creams (cortisone). toners (non alcohol) can be used for acne/ whiteheads and scars/ redness?
2) whether I should also try ibuprofen tablet paste OR retinoid cream to decrease inflammation?
3) most importantly if this will disappear from the cheeks without leaving scars?
I am vegetarian, trying to adopt more exercise/meditation in my life. used to eat carbs a lot, now seriously cutting back for the past 2 months.
Since I do not wear make up a lot (never did) so it can become quite discouraging and hurtful when some people treat you rather condescendingly. I never had breakouts before so it is even more depressing to cope with it knowing that this happened after a very severe early life crisis.
Would appreciate all the advice and kind words of support.
The largest picture is me before using the Acne.org regimen and the other pictures are 3 months after using it. I have now stopped due to the dark red marks left by the regimen after the breakouts it caused.
>> Before I purchased the Acne.org regimen my regimen consisted of applying Epiduo on my face in the morning and at night. Epiduo cleared my skin in 3 months. When I ran out of Epiduo I started looking for an alternative I could purchase because Epiduo is pricey. I didn't want my acne to come back and that's when I found Acne.org. I first found a review on youtube and her skin looked amazing! I found out many people had the same results and when I went on the website I discovered more people's stories. I was very optimistic and excited to try it. I used the regimen as directed for 3 months. I have now STOPPED this regimen because it has made my skin SO much worse. This regimen made me break out like crazy and once the breakout subsided I was left with so many dark and red acne marks. I've had trouble with acne marks before I started this regimen but I only had a few marks. Now because of this regimen I have 30+ marks that aren't going away anytime soon. I am very disappointed and so much more insecure and upset about my skin than before. My skin makes me want to cry because of how dark and lasting these marks are. I WOULD NOT GO ON THIS REGIMEN IF YOU GET MARKS EASILY. I just wish I never even bought this product.
25 years of battling this disease ~ I just want to feel normal...
I'm 48, I did not have acne as a teenager, but have been plagued with it for about 25 years now. It literally has robbed me of any self confidence and has ruined my life. I know that sounds dramatic, but it's how I feel. I've been to several dermatologists, a naturopathic doctor, tried what feels like every plan/treatment available, made dietary changes/eliminations, yet NOTHING seems to work, and many things seems to make it worse...
I've been wearing calamine lotion to bed for years and it's made my skin clear. Not perfect but way better than it normally is. But I don't want to wear it to bed for the rest of my life. So I've stopped and it's been a month and my skin is horrible again. What do I do..?
I just started using a clarisonic and I am struggling through the purging phase.
I use the clearasil 2% salicic acid gel cleanser with it.
My forehead and cheeks have tiny bumps all over them as well.
Any advice is welcome in fact I would love to hear what you have to say
Looking for tips/help/advice on my acne. All comments are helpful and encouraged! The pictures attached are on my cheeks. My acne is not as bad on my forehead and I have no acne on my nose but a lot of blackheads. I also have acne on my upper lip and chin area and just a lot of redness all over. (15 year old female teenager).
Can someone tell me what exactly Im dealing with here? I used to have acne but I used benzyl peroxide for 2 weeks then stopped using it then moved to Amway 3 step cleansers. Now Im just using all natural brown sure green tea scrub, thinking of doing micro needling for the marks.
So, i've been dealing with acne for over a year now. It used to be mild, and my worst problem was pigmentation. But a few month ago i started using honey and now i barely get pimples. Now i only deal with a few whiteheads and pigmentation.
But, 2 month ago my skin started to look and feel grainy, like sandpaper. It's full of tiny little bumps and they look worse when i'm out in the sun or with strong lights. Also i'm getting red very easily, and get hives everytime i scratch any part of my body. I really don't know what to do. Been looking for treatments and i can't find anything that works. Gonna leave a few pictures.
PS: Sorry if my grammar is bad, my native language is spanish.
these are just some sort of bumps on my skin. i have very light acne as to maybe a few pimples pop up here or there, i have a lot of black heads around my nose and the edges of my nose but theyre not to visible, but they get really red. i have some acne scars too can anyone help?
Wondering if anyone else has delt with the same thing im going through if you have any idea what is causing this skin problem, or ways on treating it. I have closed comedones only at top of my cheeks, but my whole face is loosing elastic and just feels like complete mush, Last week i woke up with a whole bunch of indented scars on my cheek where there was a patch of skin that just looked slighly wrinkles. (There was no sign of any type of acne). Might be difficult to see all the problems as pictures dont show everything, but my whole face is scarring up and turning to rolling scars.
So I have tried two laser treaments already (spread 2 years apart from eachother and it has been 3 years since my last one) and I am unsure about any significant progress. Anyways, dealing with anxeity has become a constant challenge for me since this all started about 9 or so years ago. I do my best to forget about it but it is anxeity is always lingering because of my scar situation. So, I was hoping to get some sort of advice on treatments I can do. I am open to any response.
I just wanted to know if this is normal and should this be happening with the products. My sink is starting to peel to the point it's causing discoloration in my face as well as spots .You can tell a big difference in person from the lighter parts ok my sink and the darker parts where the skin is peeling. Any help?
