I just wanted to introduce myself.  My name is Haeley and I am a NYS licensed Esthetician.  I became an esthetician after attending school for cosmetology and working in the beauty industry for about 5 years.  Around that time I noticed my true passion for skin care and went back to school for advanced esthetics and medical esthetics.  I have been practicing since 2009.  In my late teens and early 20s I suffered from cystic acne.  After years of battling it and finally overcoming it I became very interested in helping others overcome this issue (and to be honest learn as much about it as I could to help myself keep it away).  I have learned how to work in partnership with dermatologists to recommend and implement daily routines for others to help reduce acne and its scarring and other complaints.  I am eager to start chatting with everyone here and help increase everyones knowledge about what to look for when choosing their own skin care and what to look for when adding a skin care professional to your team.  I also look forward to learning more from everyone here about what works and what doesnt in order to better serve my clients needs.

welcome! i am happy to see you on here and am interested to hear what works for cystic acne as well as scarring. i am on spiro now but still getting some small breakouts here and there and would like to know what would work for those too. i use benzaclin and my derm wants me to use a retinoid as well but my skin cannot tolerate them. any ideas on products to keep the pores clear? i am allergic to salicyclic acid and mandelic acid makes my acne turn into cysts for some reason. i used it in the past with no issues but for some reason it just makes things worse now. i am interested in any tips you have for this. thanks again!

Hi Haeley. I'm Nicole. I have dry, sensitive skin and sometimes get eczema. For the past year and a half I have had moderate acne all over my face but mainly on my forehead. Treating my acne has proven very difficult as I cannot use harsh topical treatments or else my skin will become itchy and I will get rashes all over, also I am half Chinese so my skin scars pretty badly. Since your are a licensed Esthetician.....could you please give me tips on how I should be taking care of my skin? I also think I may have vitamin D deficiency. Could this be a cause of my acne? And if so....is taking 5,000 IU tablets a day too much? Thank you so much! And welcome to acne.org! :)
