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?
This is some before and after pictures. This place has honestly changed my life! Acne.org gave me my confidence and my happiness back by giving me clear skin! I can't thank them enough. I gave up for so long thinking I won't ever find anything that will make my pimples go away. But AtLast!!!!! I am so appreciative. I love them!!! I will buy it forever. Don't think this is a hoax or scam! I am a unique girl just like any of you who did a leap of faith trying this product!!!
Hi, I have some scarring from picking at pimples in the past. Considering either trying out microdermabrasion or a dermaroller, but i don't know which will be more useful in my case. Any suggesttions would be appreciated. Thanks.
I don't normally share things like this, but I wanted to share how much the acne daily regimen changed my life. I had dealt with acne since I was in middle school. I went to my primary physician and dermatologist numerous times for treatment, but every time things only got worse from oral treatments to topical creams. It got to the point where they recommended doing surgery which definitely was a no go. My self-confidence, -worth, -esteem, etc. were so low that I primarily had negative thoughts of myself. Acne.org has changed my life, thank God and praise Jesus for this regimen!
I have had this weird bump on my face towards the side of my cheek for as long as I can remember. I don't even remember this developing on my face that is how long it has been. For years It's just sat there on my face, healed up, just a round spot raised above my skin that was definitely harder than the rest of the skin on my face. Just this one little spot.
It's always kind of drove me crazy. Any who, a week or so ago I started messing around with that spot on my face. I have no idea why, but i just decided to tear at it with y finger nails. I guess I'm prone to ingrown hairs and I had just gotten over a practically bad in grown hair earlier this month. So I thought, 'maybe this spot on my face from over the years was an in-grown hair from a very long time and i should just poke at it and maybe dig something out and within a few weeks it'll no longer be there.'
The picking and squeezing lasted less than a minute, for real. I gave up. Yes, this spot did get sore and very red. But didn't swell up or get painful. It wasn't a big deal. It was just healing.
For some reason last night at the bus stop, the spot on my face starting getting to me and I was sitting there and squeezed it a bit. To my surprise puss started coming up. it was thin and worm-like. This was weird, it didn't feel painful or anything and showed no sign of puss in the last week. I thought it was weird so I squeezed a little harder. Within moments the largest thing to ever come out of me appeared on my finger
I pinched it to wipe it away from my face and that is when I noticed that it was solid. A big, solid mass had just worked itself up from underneath several layers of skin. Oh, I was mortified and fascinated all at the same time! It was a perfectly formed solid piece of what looked like a bug! I really pinched it the second time and it smeared open. It was a very thick, almost like chilled, cooked beef fat. I moved it around in between my finger tips to investigate. At first, I thought it was bug which terrified me! with a lot of hair particles in it. Thick beard hairs much like the ones on my face. the thick hairs is what caused me to believe it was a bugs legs i was looking at?
Now the spot on my face is no longer raised above the skin. But it is practically a whole in my face. The skin on my face feels in that area feels normal. There is no spot that is raised above the skin,. And I expect it to heal up just fine, with hopefully hardly any scarring. I am a bit worried about that. But oh well, at least it's not raised anymore.
It seems as if the spot on my face that had been there for as long as I can remember was raised up above the skin because there was a built up mass of some sort filled with some unusual kind of solid literally just lived there. It was so far down in my skin and had been there for so long that normal squeezing on it wouldn't do anything. But out of nowhere, messing with at the bus stop, it just came out. no blood, no liquid puss. just this piece of stuff.
I am happy it's going to heal up and the spot that annoyed me so very much for so very long is no longer going to be there. But I am mortified at what came out of my face. I could not sleep at all for some reason thinking about where else on my body could this exist.
I guess I posted this because I want to hear someone's opinion. Because this situation is very hard to put into words to research through Google.
