#3493496 Need Help Out Of Options.

Posted by vituperative on 24 August 2015 - 10:30 AM

Everyone's gonna have a different opinion here but have you considered cutting out dairy products like milk, butter, yogurt, ice cream, cheese? I say this because as someone with cystic acne who also had A LOT of white heads and pimples, cutting out dairy stopped those "smaller" breakouts. I still get hormonal cysts which are very deep and painful but the smaller stuff around my cheeks/jawline/chin reduced significantly after cutting that stuff out.

Also using a witch hazel toner at night time helped reduce redness for me, so maybe consider using that after using a mild face wash, preferrably with tea tree oil (unless you're allergic to it).

I have a towel that I used just for my face. I dry my face on one side in the morning and at night on the other side then use a new one the next day. I go through a lot of towels obviously (but they're small) and I wash them with this:




I feel that it helps me break out less. I also change my pillow cases every 2 - 3 days.

I'm a girl but I'm just going to give my opinion anyway (hope that's okay?) but it could be because of a surge of hormones? I don't know if that is proven though. Personally, from experience when I've had sex and had an orgasm my skin has improved but I am past puberty, so maybe that's why?

I saw you post several times yesterday! I can't stress this enough (in the nicest way!) you need to relax. Honestly. What you are experiencing is a side effect of Roaccutane. Many people go pink/red all over. Others get just pink eyes or lips. Please just wear sunscreen, minimize your time in the sun (if you don't need to be in it, go in the shade) and wear a hat if you can. It will subside a month or two after treatment. Please stress less, ok? :) :)

I haven't used a cover stick since about 2003 when Blackmores decided to discontinue their acne cover stick. Basically what I did back then was "draw" over my acne with the cover stick and then wait about 30 seconds for it to warm up/melt. Then I would use my fingers to gently blend it over the pimple and blend it over the rest of my surrounding skin.


I generally didn't like cover sticks because if the colour isn't PERFECT to your skin tone, it's obvious. Unlike foundation which can be mixed with different shades and then gently blended into the skin and out towards the jawline.


Also, it's perfectly ok to use sunscreen firsthand, just give it about 10 minutes to absorb into your skin before you apply the cover stick.
