you could use salt soaked in water and let it sit there for about 10-15 min then massage your face lightly with it for 5-15 min 
 
its a type of exfoliation that gets rid of blackheads and dead skin look it up

Don't use salt on your face. -_____- you'll literally tear up your skin.

salt is perfectly fine and works as a good exfoliate
Salt is extremely hard and it will cause micro tearing on your face. A soft cloth will do a lot less damage. Just because a YouTube video tells you something doesn't make it true. Putting salt water on your face or steaming with salt will probably not do any damage, but please don't use it as a scrub!

Salt?  can it heal my deep scars? 

 
Please see this image or go to my gallery to view my scar types.

Please don't put salt on your face! Your skin will be dry as it is from the accutane. You don't want to further dry it or damage it.  Once you are clear, you can discuss surgical and laser treatments for your scarring with the dermatologist.

In Topic: Cetaphil, Cerave, Or Acne.org Moisturizers?

I like CeraVe PM, personally, but I will use the lotion/cream if my skin gets really dry. Ocassionally, I use Eucerin daily calming cream to calm down irritation as well! I think half the battle of keeping my skin moisturized, however, is exfoliation. I use neutrogena's treatment pads before washing my face and I use the clarisonic every two to three days as well. For the regimen, I do think that the lotion is better than PM and I think that you should stick to manual exfoliation (clarisonic) because chemical exfoliation is too irritating when using that much BP. I'm not on the regimen anymore, but I did do it for a year or two.

Yeah, I will sure go to dermatologist for this. I am just looking for some economical efforts at home. Few months ago one dermatologist also suggested me Dermaroller but only after cure of my acne. My acne re-appear after 3 to 4 months after completion of course. He says, some people cannot get rid of acne throughout their life.... sad.png

Yes, you need to get rid of the acne before you worry about the scars. Start off with an over the counter benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid treatment with a simple non-drying, non-medicated facewash and moisturizer. Cetaphil is widely available throughout the world and is an inert line of facewashs/moisturizer that can work well with drying acne treatments. Try them for a couple of months, and use as directed for best results. If that doesn't work, go to the derm and try to follow their instructions.  Retinoids can work really well to get rid of acne, though often, they may be used in conjunction with other products. For me, it was a combination of products. Spring/summer is usually the best time to start on retinoids as the natural humidity helps with the side effect of dryness (which can exacerbate acne, if not managed, in my opinion).

 

Did the derm prescribe or recommend a treatment for you when you visited a few months ago?


In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

My husband and I were speaking today about self-pride and self-worth. What you are born with and how your body reacts to environmental factors are not things to be proud of nor are they things to be ashamed of. They just are. If you are born with skin that always tans, for example, and never burns.... does that make you better than someone who is born with easily burned skin? No...you didn't have control over that. It was just chance.

The things that matter are how you treat others, what you strive to do in life, and your motivation behind your actions. Try to convince yourself that your worth is not placed in your looks, your ailments, your "imperfections." Life is better than that. You are better than that.

I agree wholeheartedly; this is completely what matters. I think everyone knows this (deep inside). I've always really admired the people who seem to live their life to their fullest, even if they have acne, some disfigurement, some disability. Everyone is unique, acne or not. Ultimately, it's what you do in life that matters, not really how you look doing it.

 

That said, on a superficial note, I woke up at 8:57 AM for a breakfast date with a few friends that was supposed to be at 9AM. I had literally five minutes to throw something on and show up. No make-up, nothing. And I got a "I could never roll out of bed looking that good," from a friend. I really liked that one, lol :P
