I know my face is not bad, but honestly the way I see it is that we are all facing skin problems, whether minute or horrible.

hey just dont use try any products,... u dont need anything.... your skin is awesome man... U NEED TO CALM DOWN... wash your face just once or twice with whicever cleanser u wer using b4... n no touching o popping.. aviod anything gettin n your face... IF U DONT STOP WORRYING N CONT WITH ALL PRODUCTS  .... u will surely end up with somthin severe... so many ppl advising to leave them alone.. dont u get from them.... STOP IRRITATING YOUR SKIN...

I understand. I've seen all the comments saying my skin is nice, etc. It does help my confidence and make me feel better. But I'm more concerned about why nothing I do helps much. The red marks are really the biggest problem, and I always have clogged pores and my cheeks are just a mess sometimes.

its a mess coz of u... just leave it alone ... k just leave it for a week without doin anything... just cleanse n moisturise lik u used to do befor..... believe me ur skin will improve....... dont touch them thats all..... u will surely see the difference.... n yea try sleepin on your bac...

Update : So, my skin is relatively clear, I have one pimple that for some reason hurts like hell. My nose gets these weird red spots that aren't exactly pimples. I've still been using Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser with Cotton Extract, Dickinson's Witch Hazel and then Tea Tree Oil directly on pimples. The only obstacle I need to get rid of are the red marks on my cheeks, but everytime I think about it I always notice there are still either pimples there or bumps.Attached File  IMG_6044.JPG   61.28K   1 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6059.JPG   56.25K   2 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6058.JPG   65.94K   7 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6057.JPG   68.84K   12 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6056.JPG   78.21K   13 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6055.JPG   88.23K   14 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6052.JPG   74.03K   13 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6046.JPG   84.68K   7 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6045.JPG   58.65K   9 downloads

Looking at my very first post, I wish I could go back to that skin.

Update:
So I've been using the same regimen, and tried mixing baking soda with water and leaving it on for 10 minutes and then washing it off and it helped with some buildup and skin on my nose and left it smooth to the touch. I'm looking a ton clearer, minus that one puss filled mother on the side. The only thing I can't seem to shake are those tiny bumps, no matter what I do those don't leave. I'm going to try using squeezed lemon juice overnight to see if it does anything for the red marks and spots over time. I hope so, but otherwise I feel a little more confident.  It's hard to see any bumps on my skin through picture, but in person in the mirror or even just standing close you can see them. All over my forehead and temple areas, and sometimes between my eyebrows and nose. My cheeks have always been the spot for inflamed puss fillers or whiteheads anyway, so I've gotten used to those spots compared to when I get one anywhere else. Hopefully lemon works to make my cheeks one color. Other than that, I wash with Burt's Bees, tone with Dickinson's Witch Hazel, then dap a q-tip in Tea Tree Oil and spot treat.

Otherwise, I'd say I'm in the clear.

Yesterday, 11:49 PM

I suffered from acne for about 11 years.  8 of those years it actually affected my life for the worst. So much that I wouldnt be where i am today or be the person I am today because of it.  That thought of that alone blows my mind away. It still upsets me from time to time because of what I could have done and learned in that time. But as I look at it I would never be able to help anyone like I hope I can.

 

I havent had acne problems in 10 years. Hell , I rarely use any cleansers anymore.  I will pretty much stick to my guns on this solution because anything less would be 10 steps back and I would die trying to help at least one person understand this. Because I know others feel like its killing them or that they want to die some days. I mean I wanted to die but somehow instead I ended up  willing to die for this realization... until I gave up. So I will just sum up some 6 principles to healing that came out about from the miracle I had.

 

Just a few facts that I learned on my own about acne that no doctor could ever tell you because he has probably never had to heal his own acne. (Plus, he would be out of business.)

 

First before you read this just stop whining. Stop looking for someone to make it go away for you. Its your acne. You're the one who created it ,you're the one prolonging it. Trying to whine about it on here and not take anyones advice that has put an end to the problem  even though you "want a solution" is  basically saying you want it. To paint a better picture its like paying a personal trainer to get in shape but instead of you lifting the weights you want him to lift them. LOL.

 

 

 

1. Acne is not out there trying to get you. It is not a separate entity from you. It is an extension of you. It starts in your mind ( like any other thing).

Acne thoughts + emotion( "I can't stand acne!") = Acne

2. Since it is in your mind it is created by your thoughts.And since it starts with a thought it can be ended with...no thought.

Acne thoughts -  acne emotion( I can't stand acne)= Healing 

3. You have an emotional attachment to acne. " I can't stand acne".  It must be let go. Forgiven. But first let me emphasize any form of medicine or naturopathic home remedy, or no remedy, you wish to take has to go through this process to heal. 

 

Forgiveness is what heals.  Right now you're at "F@ck you acne". when you need to be at "Acne is ok. " Then eventually you will get to "Who's acne?"

 

When you cut your finger most of the time there is no grudge with the cut , so you let it heal. Its not "F@ck you cut! or F@ck you kitchen knife(well sometimes but only for a minute hehe).  When you make up with a friend its not "I forgive you for breaking my Justin Bieber but when you get a chance burn in hell"  Its either "I forgive you "or it what I call " No need to forgive because, I was never upset." You simply cannot have peace without letting yourself have it. 

 

4. You have to change your mind about acne.  You think it makes you ugly and unattractive. But since  your so wrapped up in yourself,  you've never bothered to look around and realize theres really no such thing as ugly. There is nothing unbearable to look at.

Think about it. Take a look around at people with it and without it. Does acne change how you feel about them? The ones that  do have it can you tell it bothers them? Can you tell how it makes them feel at all? Usually not. And why is that? Because its all in their head! If you can't perceive a problem with your eyes then it must be in the mind, right?

 

5. Stop resisting the acne. Let it be there. Remember its there because you cant stand it. So for now on tell yourself its ok to have it.

Because it does not matter. ITs like bird shit on a car. Its not going to change how you feel about a car. It would never keep you from buying a car you love. You'd have to scour a car just to see it anyway. If it was a ferrari you wouldn't even care!  The problem is taken care of you just need to get out of the way because you have been in the way the whole time by caring about acne.

 

6.The BEST ACTION to take to release  your attachment to it is to affirm : "I don't care if it stays or goes,  I'm not going to do this to myself anymore. I going to live my life and be happy."  Then start living your life like someone who doesn't have it. Stop putting all this crap on your face. pick one cleanser use it no more than twice a day if you need that to make you feel at ease.  Stop looking for zits in the bathroom for an hour. Stop picking. Stop hiding. People that don't have it don't do that crap. So stop taking it so seriously. Laugh at yourself once in awhile and spend time trying to always be laughing or doing something you enjoy.  

 

Keep in mind if you took Accutane or something and it went away, your attitude towards it would be different. You will eventually feel "safe" but it will just take longer and cost more. Eventually you may even forget your grudge and approve of yourself and actually be happy but only conditionally. You'll never know unconditional happiness or love. 

So to conclude if you can't understand at least one of these then saddle up for a long ride on a road to nowhere and good luck with your next battle. Acne's cousin cancer.

This may sound unconventional but I've been doing it for three weeks (I was desperate to try anything) and although my logic said it made no sense I tried it and its been working.

Extra Virginia olive oil & sea salt cleanser. Look it up online best is it works as a moisturizer too.

Burdock root tea worked for healing my acne. It's a plant you can find very easy. It's free because you can dig for the root yourself. Here is the tea recipe, dosage, and effects:

I agree with everyone else. Lovely skin! But yeah, I get that even the occasional breakout can be stressful. Totally understand.

 

Anyway, like everyone suggested, Differen would be good for you. It helped reduce my pimples, and that's saying something coming from a person with severe acne. Most of the store-bought acne treatments can be quite harsh on your skin. A gentle face wash like Cetaphil, or Dermaveen might be a better alternative. Both are pretty cheap, and make your skin feel awesome. If that doesn't help, your local doctor should be able to hit you up with some creams and meds, but that should be your last resort. Your pimples will most likely clear up easily with just some simple washes.

 

Good luck! Have fun on your holiday.

This is going to sound horrible, and I hated when people used to ask me this, but have you tried... just leaving it alone? Your skin really isn't that bad at all except that it looks irritated. Try keeping your skin care routine simple and natural and using only one treatment at a time - don't pick either. Sometimes our skin becomes overloaded with chemicals and treatments. I think you'd find leaving things to heal up with a simple routine than adding very gentle exfoliation once a week and discovering just one treatment that works well for you could make a big difference.

Ok, so it's been going okay. For a little while my face was pretty clear. 
I have only been using Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser and dapping a little undiluted Tea Tree to some spots. I also sparingly use the Witch Hazel toner,  not often. One side of my face was so clear and all that was there were the marks, and I was so happy. Now there's a pimple forming there and I am so disappointed. The other side has had an odd pimple for a while. Then there's my forehead. Pictures do not do it justice, but it just seems like every pore is a tiny whitehead, and bumpy. My nose, as you can see in one picture, just has an odd texture and feels weird.Attached File  IMG_6322.JPG   33.03K   1 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6319.JPG   32.28K   1 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6318.JPG   41.26K   0 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6312.JPG   43.75K   0 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6311.JPG   46.65K   0 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6309.JPG   32.08K   0 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6308.JPG   34.29K   0 downloadsAttached File  IMG_6303.JPG   35.65K   0 downloads
