Hey everyone, quick intro, I'm new here. 33yo, Caucasian, living in Northern California. Have had oily skin and acne since like forever. In between jobs now, no health insurance, can't afford a dermatologist (and confused by the whole Healthcare.gov thing).

 

So based on my pics, can someone tell me what I suffer from and what can fix it?

 

Chemical peel?

 

Laser/IPL resurfacing?

 

Also, the white bumps on my chin, are those whiteheads? Asking because I've read that whiteheads can't be squeezed out, but I can squeeze the tips of those. I never get pimples in that area.

 

Thank you,

Confused in CA

If you have too much oily skin, it means you have hormone irregularities. More hormones stimulates the oil glands to produce more sebum (oil). 

 

And yes, those are whiteheads. Whiteheads result when a pore is completely blocked, trapping sebum, bacteria, and dead skin cells, causing a white appearance on the surface. Don't pop whiteheads with your hands or it may lead to pimples.

 

Don't go with any kinds of treatments for now, just try honey mask or clay mask. Home remedies/Natural remedies are the best and most inexpensive ways to cure Whiteheads.

What acne...?? Am I missing something? lol


AM Regimen:

Cleanse face with La Roche Posay Effaclar

Apply Aczone

Moisturize with Sheseido Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer

 

PM Regimen:

Cleanse face with La Roche Posay Effaclar

Apply Aczone

Moisturize with Sheseido Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer

Spot Treat with Clearisil Adult Acne Tinted Spot Treatment (always)

 

 

I now do not follow a vitamin regimen and have expanded my eating to include almost all food groups (excluding lactose/dairy). Since I made this change my face has CLEARED UP!

Minimalism people, trust me it works. Develop a skin care regimen, stick to it, and you will see results. All the rest (diet, exercise, supplements) didn't work for me. Less is more.

 

Status: 98% Clear... Plus a nice bunch of superficial scarring -.-

OK, I don't have cystic acne, but here's what I suffer from:

 

Whitehead workms coming out of my skin

 

When I squeeze my nose skin, these white earthworms come out of it. It's disgusting, and they never stop.

 

How do I fix this? Is it too much to ask to have smooth skin like on my forearm, without these huge pores and the white crap that's coming out of them?

I see like nothing wrong to be honest. When it comes to the nose you can use like a BHA, SA cream to dry those out; however, that gunk will return. Many at the dailyspa site have tried (mostly women). I myself suffered from it for a time. I just leave it alone really otherwise it seemed when i did mess with cleaning them they became more noticeable.

 

Your chin is fine. Just like mine. I have the same thing man. Its okay. Not noticeable unless you want to carry a pocket mirror and examine every detail. Its okay. I get an occasional small bump there; shaving every 3-4 days with a sharp 3 bladed razor seems to help. It probably exfoliates the skin so these bumps become smaller or disappear.

 

Your fine. Nothing to diagnosis. Everyone has their battle scars. It adds character, but you add your personality.
