Very Bad Neck Acne, What Products Should I Use?

3 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!

I am 21. and I've had had this neck (jaw) acne for like 2-3 weeks it came kind of out of nowhere, because usually my acne starts from bad eating habits... my diet has been OK =healthy, but I work out a lot and almost every day (I work as a fitness instructor and dance teacher, that means I sweat alot in classes), and I've been using concealer to cover up my acne, I know it is not good but I don't wanna show it... it looks terrible. I am travelling to NYC in 3 weeks and I want it gone or at least less red and painful. Is there any products I could use that could cure it a little? (I am not from US, so I prefer something that we have in Europe as well)

I added the picture as well, I have the same amount of acne on both sides of neck and a few spots on my jaw and lip area as well.. other than that my face is pretty clear

(I am pretty positive it was caused by make-up+sweating, I am using MAC's pro longwear and its probably not for me...but I cannot help the covering up right now. I just wear make up for work and take it off after I'm done.)

You have the type of acne that will go away and doesnt affect the tone of your skin, whiteheads are the real problem for me

from what i know, salycilic acid wash and benzoyl peroxide cream apparently work good, accutane is also always an option but avoid it, acne will go away on its own even if you dont do anything to treat it

MAC is probably one of the WORST brands of makeup that you can use for acne prone skin and has probably contributed to your acne. Since it is mostly on neck/jawline it could very well be hormone related (something to look into as acne is usually an internal problem). In the meantime, don't expect quick results. Your best bet is to try a product and stick with it for at least 2 to 3 months before deciding it is not for you. Also, you may want to look into diet changes.
