The huge cystic zit erupted on my nose probably formed Friday afternoon after a long outdoor event. I slathered on Cervae AM underneath my Cover Girl Tinted moisturizer. All the sweating mixed the sun lotion and TM was probably the perfect recipe for cystic zit. It was an underground pimple forming Friday and it erupted on Saturday. It's humongous and bright red.

Monday
Aspirin mask on cyst over night (no change Tuesday morning)

Tuesday
Green Tea mask, left green tea on cystic zit over night (No change wednesday morning)

Wednesday
Purchased Visine to remove redness
Neosporin

PM
Toothpaste 20 mins
Did Aztec healing mask mixed with plain yogurt 20 mins
Plain Yogurt mask to moisturize 20 mins
Will leave aztec mask over cystic zit over night

This cystic zit will not shrink or budge and it's driving me crazy. I can't remember the last time a zit popped up on my nose.

A cystic zit popped up underneath my chin which is so weird because I never break out there. The cystic zit on my nose has shrunk a little but it is still there and obvious. Came home and did an aztec clay healing mask and moisturized w/jojoba oil and then used aczone. I hope my vitamins come in soon. Really think that my break outs are attributed to not taking my vitamins for the past 4 months...

It's June. I had a slight accident w/my PMD end of May and ended up scraping off some skin unintentionally. Been breaking out on my chin, right cheek, and nose again. Derm gave me acanya. It feels like a higher dosage of Aczone so I've been using that lately. Using Nicazel instead of nicotinamide now since insurance doesn't cover.

Are you still using the TCA peel a couple of times a week?!

Any website or derm that you talk to would never advise to use them that often! It doesn't just exfoliate the top layer of skin, it is a controlled burn! They suggest 2 weeks between 8% and only 3 consecutive peels 4 weeks apart for anything higher percentage wise! They suggest that you only do that once or twice a year. Even MUAC, the website you ordered it from, has it all over their site AND the directions that they send along with the product. http://www.makeupart...its-104-22.html
Also, TCA self neutralizes 5-8 minutes, so leaving it on longer does not make it more effective, it's just irritating your fragile skin.
I am quite literally cringing for poor skin.

To anyone else reading this, please do not use peels in this manner. Follow the directions that come along with the product.

I imagine that your skin barrier is completely obliterated and that's what's contributing to your acne.

Wow it's been almost half a year. I think because my skin cleared up i stopped posting. Last week a huge cystic zit erupted on the right side of my nose and forehead so I've been scrambling to treat it as quickly as possible. I want it gone by this weekend! I purchased a new toy the Tanda Luxe anti-aging light therapy. It's a lot more powerful then my pretika red light therapy. My poor pretika has lasted about 4 years now and has finally died out. I've been using the Tanda for two weeks now. I'll update next month to see how my skin has reacted to it. So far the results have been pretty good. I broke out on my chin due to PMS and the Tanda cleared up the break out there within a week.

I should've opted for the cortizone shot when I went to the Derm on Wednesday. This cystic zit on my nose hasn't budged for the past two weeks. I've tried everything on it. Asprin mask, honey mask, Aloe Vera plant (raw), clay mask, Tanda red light. But NADA. Last night I applied some aczone on it and proceeded to obliterate it with my Tanda Red light therapy. I just made the white stuff ooze out of the pores of the cystic pimple but it didn't shrink. Then I applied some honey on it and left it on over night. Researched Propolis. Will be looking into purchasing some of that next time I go to Whole Foods.

The cystic pimple on my nose is still there. It's deflated in size but still living. Three cystic pimples popped up on my left chin. They're so painful and raw it hurts. Been using the Tanda on my chin religiously so I was surprised when the zits erupted there. For some reason I don't think the power the Tanda red light is comparable to the Pretika. I feel like the pretika was stronger. I also read that the Atria red light trumps the Tanda and is more effective. Sigh.. too late now I've already purchased the Tanda and the blue light head is being shipped to my house as we speak. Went to Ulta today and purchased the Purity one step cleanser by philosophy as well as the Acne clarisonic brush head (it's the one with the green coloring). I read the reviews for the acne one and I thought it was be rougher or comparable to the normal one I was using.The bristles for the acne one is longer so it's less dense and is more gentler which I'm not use to since I was so accustomed to the normal brush head with the denser britles. I'll give the acne replacement head a try since I already purchased it from the store for $25 -_--

Came home today wiped of make up off with Jojoba oil on a cotton ball. Then rinsed face. Massaged philosophy Purity cleanser on to my face for 60 seconds and used my clarisonic with the acne brush head. Patted face dry. Applied honey all over face with q-tip. Left on for an hour while I ate dinner. Rinsed off honey and applied stonybrook organic low vanilla yogurt. My chin has been breaking out. It's all blotchy, tight, and dry feeling, with cystic zits erupting.

Last night I didn't use any retina just moisturized with Cervae PM and applied some Acanya to the cystic zits on my chin. This morning applied honey onto face then hopped into the shower. Steamed my face and showered. Then used the Personal Microderm to exfoliate. Applied yogurt to face afterwards to moisturize.

Purchased the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum duo (http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?skuId=1457779&productId=P375418&_requestid=173647#!keyword=CAUDALIE%20Vinoperfect%20Serum%20Duo%20P375418)

I've been researching serums to incorporate into my night time routine and I've read good reviews about it. I was debating between the Caudalie and Estee Lauder serum. The Estee Lauder had alcohol in it and seemed to irritate reviewers skin so I opted out of of that. I also purchased the Philosophy Turbo Booster C. It's just a vitamin C powder to mix in w/my moisturizer. I'll start using that next week once I get a feel of the serum

Serum has definitely made my skin softer. Tanda blue light head arrived today. Excited to test the bad boy out. I have two cystic zits on my chin that has become full bloom. My period is ending now so maybe my chin will stop breaking out.

Was doing some reading and came across this. Blue light isn't effective on cystic acne. http://cysticacnehq....eat-cystic-acne

Cystic pimples on my chin have decreased in size and slowly healing. One on nose has flattened out but scar remains. Broke out small pimple on my left n right cheek. Caudalie serum has not reduced oiliness on tzone. Forehead texture is bumpy. Received .5mm microneedle will start using that soon. Continuing with blue and red tanda lights.

Still continually breaking out in huge cystic pimples on my chin. It seems that once one deflates another emerges. Could it be the Tanda blue light?

Left my Cerave moisturizer last week at friends house so I've been experimenting with samples that I've received. Philosophy Hope in a Jar smells like plastic chemicals and is so heavy that I feel like it clogs my pores. The Miracle Worker moisturizer is slightly better and a bit lighter similar consistency like to the Cerave moisturizer but still has this plastic odor to it. I think the Hope in a Jar broke me out bc a small pimple popped on my forehead.The DDF ultra-lite oil-free moisturizing dew was not a good choice either. Felt heavy and smelled too. I'll stick to CeraVe PM my HG moisturizer. Also used the Kinerase C8 Peptide Serum and it was more of a moisturizer than serum. Thicker than my CeraVe. Almost like Cetaphil Moisturizer consistency. It was okay. Didn't break me out but didn't really see instant results either. I'll see how it goes. I have really seen any instant improvements witht the Caudalie either.

 

PM

 

Rinsed face w/warm water

Massgaed Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for 60 seconds

Rinse face. Pat dry.

Apply organic honey onto face. Wait 5 mins.

Steam face with honey on face for 5 mins.

Rinse off with warm water. Pat dry.

Use Personal Microderm

Rinse face with Cetaphil again

Two weeks ago cystic pimple broke out bt my eyebrows and right t-zone area by my nose, The pimple by my nose diminished when I used my blue light. Tanda was too big to use bt my eyebrows. Breaking out in small little bumps around my cheeks I think due to my MAC mineralized blush. Any time I use blush or bronzer I always break out. I haven't been able to find cheek products that do not break me out. My period finished but I still have scarring on my chin from all the break outs I had previously. Been using my PMD w/out the discs to suck the gunk out of my pores. Works better than the blackhead remover tool.

 

My process

Wash face

Apply Honey

Shower to steam face

Use PMD w/out disks to suck out bores press down with a little pressure and rotate downwards. You can see the white gunk coming out when you press down and being sucked away.

I keep breaking out in cystic acne on my chin. =( It's so itchy. Worst time to break out just before a big event. Did the honey, aztec healing clay, yogurt mask, green tea scrub today in the evening. I've been doing oatmeal scrub every morning. Feel like the Caudalie serum is congesting my pores as well may have to discontinue w/that serum.
