So basically in January my skin was as smooth and clear as I've had it in months. But fast forward to now. I've been self conscious of my face and it's starting to get to me. I don't even go outside or hang out with friends. I don't even like to go to work knowing my face is all red and purple and filled with scarring and hyperpigmentation. My daily routine is cetaphil daily cleanser in the morning and night but it hasn't helped much. I've tried to start acting healthy but nothing has worked. Can someone please help
In the past year my acne has been more presence than ever .. I've been going through a body transformation and with that came a healthier me with not so heathy looking skin .. I have both chest and back acne and my skin is very inflamed and red leaning me towards the use of makeup which leads to clogged pores ..
Hi. I was wondering if anyone could please help me? I have had clear skin all my life, other than when I got the odd rash from sensitivity. However, recently my skin has been terrible. I have had spots all over my forehead and also around my mouth. I've tried everything, from pure witch hazel to brand stuff, apple cider vinegar, hydrocortisone cream and nothing has worked. I can't have accutane or anything severe like that, because if I went to a dermatologist and asked for that, I'd probably be laughed out the room, because my skin isn't 'bad' for most, but I know personally that I only have bad skin, so for me it is. Any help is greatly appreciated.
The following pictures show my skin at the 5 month mark using Acne.org products.
My skin rarely breaks out, using this system has greatly minimized my breakouts. Currently my skin has blackheads that needs treated. I have added the AHA-Glyolic acid to help exfoliate/ improve my skin texture.
Hi, I'm new to Acne.org I am 16 I never had bad acne all my life other than black heads I ignored and a mild breakout now and again but over the last couple of months it's just going from bad to worse I have moderate to severe acne now and have decided it's time to see a dermatologist we are trying very hard at the moment to set me an appointment. Until then I was wondering if any of you may have any advice for me?
I keep getting skin coloured "blocked pores" on my forehead? I have looked at them close up and they are not black heads more inflames like white heads just bumps? I get it when my skin gets oily or I wear makeup on a night out. What are they and how do I get rid of them? Every time I try to extract them they become angry huge spots.... Its annoying and makes me feel self conscious. can anyone give any advice? Creams , routines , brands? I wash, tone and motorise my skin 2 times a day and nothing is working. anything like Clinique makes it worse? why? Thank you guys for help!
My name is Thomas, I am 21 years old and i do suffer from acne since i am 17 i guess.
So things I've tried:
Dieting- lowcarb, no dairy, paleo, vegan, everything
Now I am just reducing my intake of dairy and sugary foods to less than 10 percent of calories, but doesnt make a huge difference for me..
Been on accutane for 4 Month, great results but doctor took me off becaucse blood work came back badly
Supplemting with Zinc, Fish oil, vitamin d, probiotics... tried everything you can imagine
My scan is really flat and i don't get to much breakouts but i do suffer a lot from redness and scarring,..
I never picked on my skin, i do eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, salmon and fiber,..
I exercise 4 times a week
I don't know what to do i just want to get the redness away but it is there since 1year for sure.
Does really affect me in my social life, because i always think my face looks just really awful and i hate to be on mpictures because of my skin.
I really just want to have clear skin like before
Washing face 2 times dailly with Avene
Morning: Moisturize cream with AHA
Evening: Differin Cream (since 6Month not seeing results beside skin is flater than before, but does nothing for my redness)
Please share some advice with me, my doc always tells me to be patient blabla..*
Can you help me how I get rid of this curse? I've been dealing with this since 2011. I've tried lots of products but non worked. I really need assistance because if I have to live like this always, I think it's better for me to die. :'(
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.
