Help Me With These? (Pic)

19 posts in this topic

Hey guys. So my problem are these red marks on my forehead. The rest of my face and body is completely clear. But my forehead remains a problem. Would anyone be able to recognise anything for me just judging from this pic?

If you need to know anything else, I'm 20, Male, Healthy and currently only use a manuka honey moisturiser with perhaps some vitamin e oil at night. I only stopped getting acne 2 months ago when I took was prescribed Doxycycline. I'm just left with this redness, I never popped any of my spots either.

Last year I had exactly the same problem on my cheeks, now I'm left with some red scars.

The way I try to fight my acne:

- Drink water as often as you can

- Avoiding washing you face for several days ( it might sound weird but give it a try ! )

- Eat around 4-5 times per day ( no junk foods, as healthy as you can )

- Before you go to sleep do some stretching, pump your heart a little, try not to go sweaty !

- Before going to sleep apply some lemon juice and LEAVE it there ! Just once per week

- Try avoiding doing * the thing * teens do, it screwes up your hormones.

Try this for 2-3 weeks, it has done pure magic to my face !

try aloe vera (directly from the plant). or look up LED lights. both of these seem to have high rates of success from what i see on the forum.

btw, i'm curious to know if you have digestion issues or a history of taking long term medication? i have forehead acne exclusively as well and i find that we're a rare breed.

Redness will fade in time. I know it's a b**** to deal with. I personally have hyper pigmentation due to my olive skin tone. I break out occasionally and it always leaves a dark spot, no matter if I pick or not, I know your pain. Exfoliating helps a lot. However you want be very careful of not over-exfoliating. A lot of people have had great success with the baby brush method for exfoliating, there's huge thread on here, google it, I'm sure you'll come across it. When you exfoliate you're getting rid of all that dead skin. Also if you want further results, try using lemon juice or tomato juice, both contain acidic properties that fade red marks and dark marks. It won't happen overnight, but it definitely beats any prescription or lightening cream I've found; plus it's cheap and natural. If you decide to use lemon, make sure you do your proper research on it, hope I helped.

Thank you for everyone who replied to this post :) After seeing using the Aloe Vera plant mentioned a couple of times it will be something I have to try soon. They seem to be fading quite well now actually due to the new regime I'm on. I've also incorporated drinking Apple Cider Vinegar in my diet. 2 table spoons every morning diluted with water. I'm currently avoiding working out as to avoid sweating but will get back into it once I'm certain my forehead won't break out any more.

I always found it so strange how the rest of my face and body never got acne at all but my forehead seemed to love it. The only frustrating thing about it is I have a massive forehead! More room for spots!

Anyway thank you. I have taken everything you have all said into consideration. Wish me luck! :)

Just a quick update on my forehead. I haven't seen the sun in months here in middle England. So I'm like everyone at the moment who doesn't much fancy sunbeds in the sense I have dark circles and slightly pale skin tone. But fuck it, these mofos are on their way out.

Currently I wash my face once a day and use an antiseptic Savlon moisturiser with bio oil.

Will provide more updates when I see progress.

Edit - Forgot to attach pic lol (((((((:

Mind if i join the topic? Too shy to start a new one.

This is my face. What would be your recommendations for getting clean? Most of these are red marks, raising scars, blackheads and ice-picks. Few active pustules and whiteheads.

For you I would recommend using a light tea tree cleanser and a gentle moisturiser with SPF. Remember to be gentle on your skin as if its a baby's skin. I believe the body shop do a great tea tree cleanser. Everyone raves about it! I'm using it too! Also remember to exfoliate 2-3 times a week.

Update: pic of me as of now

I hope you guys didn't think I wasn't going to show you my bad skin days. Here's an update of my forehead taken 5 minutes ago. Look at dat redness. I haven't slept properly in 5 days most likely getting about 5 or 6 hours sleep in total. Coupled with drinking overpriced red wine for the sake of Christmas gave me a couple of spots. YAY! biggrin.png

Anyway, I'll keep you guys updated whenever I feel like taking a pic of my sexy skin. I know you love seeing my spots wink.png

Taken a minute ago. Heavy night of binge drinking last night. Today I start another water fast. 3 days nothing but water. It's about 10PM here. Gonna see what a few early nights do for me.

Fuck me. Broke out again. This is starting to piss me off actually.

Oh, pretty useless me telling you, man. Doubt you have the same skin type as me.

Fuck I'm so oily. If the US knew how oily my skin was they'd pull out of Afghanistan.

Anyway have another sexy pic. I don't wanna sound like a bitch whining about this acne bullshit but GODDDDAAAMNNN.

Can't believe nearly 2000 people have viewed this thread and only a few replied. Pretty fucking heart broken actually

Hello, I just joined this site and I'd like to help you and many more with acne prone skin. I've suffered with acne since I was 18 and due to my ignorance back them, those pimples became big dark spots, trust me my life was a nightmare for 3 years, this skin affection may not kill yourself but it certainly affects your social life because it is a disease pretty much everyone can see, it's not like a tumor which no one would know you are sick until you actually tell them. Well, whatever I'm 22 now and I'm finally cured, of course I get a few break outs from time to time, but now I know what I have to do to clear the area again.

Okay, now let's talk about your problem, first of all, I'd like to know what's your daily skin care regimen to determine where you are mistaken. I read the whole post and I can see you don't sleep well and what's even worst, you like to drink alcohol, this is completely a NO-NO and you should correct this aspect of your life to let your system repair itself, meaning sleep at least 7-8 hours and drink a lot of water, I know this because I usually get an inflammation when I'm stressed and tired. It is also known that you tend to get pimples in your forehead area due to bad digestion, specially when you eat late at night, which is why I recommend to eat more fruits and vegetables and avoid rich spicy foods as mush as you can, you also may be lactose intolerant, so stop consuming milk and cheese.

I think this is enough for now, I'll keep an eye on this post waiting for your reply. Cheers! ;)
