Please Help, I'm So Frustrated With My Skin =/

21 posts in this topic

it's like seriously hurting so much to look at myself -__- i have less active acne now but i'm still breaking out here and there and EVERYTHING leaves redness/hyperpigmentation or dark spots

even if i leave it alone it still leaves some type of spot, i'm currently putting fresh aloe vera gel on my entire face every night which has helped a little bit, but i'm so depressed. Not sure what I should do, currently supplementing with zinc/magnesium/vitamin D as well

please recommend me a course of action, I feel like it'll take years to heal this up =/

edit: i should of said said this right away, this picture was taken within 10 minutes after getting out of the shower/putting aloe vera gel on

so yeah my skin is even redder than normal, that good ol post shower redness -___-

it doesnt look severe.

dont jump on accutane before u're sure u've tried everything.

u can start by concentrating on diet,lifestyle and some topicals.

also change some habits u have now.

find out an apt diet for YOU.eliminate and figure things out.

i know people here who are intolerant one thing which are healthy in general but not for them!

what is ur diet and lifestyle like?

dairy?wheat/gluten?rice?

sleep?stress/exercise?

start taking cinnamon after meals (helpd with insulin spikes).whats ur skincare routine?what do u use other than aloe vera gel?

i suggest a low% bha wash.1% to start with.

u can use clindamycin phosphate + nicotinamide gel(or adapalene in it).

u can also use bp for spot treatment.but it is harsh for many so u gotta be careful.

I have the same problem with spots leaving hyperpigmentation that just won't fade. I've been using Emu Oil for 6 weeks now and I have seen an amazing difference in my red marks- it's helped so much.

If I were you, I'd try Emu Oil. It makes you skin feel greasy put if you can put up with it, it's worth it because it helps so much. You can use it just at night if the greasiness bothers you, but I use it in the morning and the evening.

Just make sure it's 100% pure Australian Emu oil that you buy.

Hope this helps? :)

is ur problem acne or is that more or less clear?

are u ONLY worried about hyperpigmentation?

*gym(specially weight lifting) cause acne in many men.check that out here.u will see some posts on that.

*check for gluten.

*brown rice shouldnt do u bad.but still check for insulin spikes.

do u take those protein shakes or whatever they call it?

wash ur face twice a day.before u go to bed and after u wake up.with a wash.

is ur skin oily?

if aloe vera is helping u then u can continue.

see what suits YOU.

Have you tried the regimen. I am on it and i have seen some improvement 3 weeks in. Many people with worse acne have also cleared. I think your diet is pretty decent. The only other recommendations i could offer is to cut out all dairy and gluten for 3 months to see if it helps and start juicing/blending veggies

I've suffered acne since I was 10. I'm now 25 and clear from acne. I break out every now and then. I've gone to the dermatologist where they would heal my acne with antibiotics. After a few months, it would come back because I've become resistant to the medication. I healed my acne using natural methods, I've tried every natural mask out there. A few other treatments I really regret doing(urine theraphy..yuck). I've been on Acne.org and other forums but never once posted anything because I just liked taking in information and it wasn't like one product/advice worked magically. I have rolling scars and hype pigmentation that I'm trying to get rid off. I'm doing co2 fractional laser treatments spaced about 3 mos+

I find that washing with just luke warm water and doing a cold rinse after helps. I've found that tomato (sliced and spread on the face) 2x a week greatly controls my acne. It was yogurt+turmeric that cured me. But this took months. I have a friend that used to break out so much and I've been noticing his skin becoming clearer. I think he's taking glutathione and his acne marks are fading really well. I'm gonna give it a try because IDK WHAT IT IS BUT MY MARKS ARE STILL THERE AND IT'S KILLING MEEEEEE. I'm a girl so i have a lot more insecurities.hehe. rolleyes.gif

I will tell you how it goes with the product that I will be using. In the mean time, use plain yogurt +turmeric. Keep it on till it dries. If you want pictures of my friend I can email them to you :)

Lol maybe i should rephrase it. All it's ingredients is virgin coconut oil,papaya enzhymes, kojic acid, and that's it. I think i should say "bar". But yeah.

what i understand from a 'bar' is - its a soap.with certain ingredients.

but i admit i dont have much idea about bars many use.

some african bar etc

so i think someone with a fair idea should be discussed with.

luck

let me be honest with yu ok

yur acne is NOT BAD

I hate when my family or sisters or friends say that to me but looking at this photo yur acne isn't bad

go and see yur docta tell him/her to put yur on antibiotics and a topical cream

Accutane isn't a good thing and yu don't even need it

PLUS don't touch yur

aw and wash yur face with cold water rather than warm my face tend to go red when I was with warm water so I jst wash with cold water

yu kno yu should try oats mask I swear its soo soothing on the skin and it takes marks really fast even deep scars if yu use it every day for six weeks yu will be scars/mars free

yu jst need to take some oats mixs with one spoon of honey and a bit of water mix it well and put it all over yur face wait for 15-20 minutes

my skin gets irritated sooo fast I affoid everything but this mask is wonderful

yu can also use it as a face wash at night and in the morning jst take some oats mix it with a bit of water and rub it on yur skin gently then wash it off

try and see how it goes

Avoid hot or cold water. Lukewarm is the way to go in the shower or in the sink.

Consider what I do. Manuka honey masks a few times a week, whenever I feel like, to help alleviate redness and help scars.

Morning/night, I wash with a mixture of pure jojoba oil mixed with lavender essential oil and gently massage my skin.

REMEMBER, stop picking if you haven't done so already, I learned.

I'm in the same boat as you my man. I have little acne, but a ton of hyperpigmentation. Eat healthy, drink enough water, and stay positive. You'd

be surprised what the human mind and body can do.
