Hyperpigmentations And The Sun

30 August 2013 - 12:29 PM

Hey, I know hyperpigmentations are not good to be exposed to sun light, so if I use sunscreen does that make it safe for the marks? Or is it still bad to be in sun even with sunscreen. Im currently using this sunscreen: EltaMD UV CLEAR BROAD-SPECTRUM SPF 46 


Google it to get a list of ingreadients and what its about (its all on their website) it seems like a real nice sunscreen :)

Hyperpigmentations Or Acne Scars?

25 August 2013 - 03:00 PM

Hey, about 2 months ago I broke out bad on the underside of my jaw line on my face. I am starting my second month of accutane, 80mgs a day. Its clearing up and only a few white heads here and there and a scab or 2 because they rip off when I turn in my sleep. But now that the acnes pretty cleared up I have these marks all over, read their hyperpigmentations but not sure if acne scars or what lol, any help would be great/

Moisturizer With Accutane?

20 August 2013 - 03:00 PM

Starting my second month of accutane (Two 40mg/s pills a day), my face is getting reeeeeally dry, I ordered this soap called "the essential bar by buzzys essentials." You can google the soap, I was recomended to it from this community. Its all natural and does all this good stuff for your face blah blah. I emailed the creator of the soap and he claims that it should moisturize your face. But ever since using it my face has gotten so dry that there are white patches of like dead skin on my face, like flaky white dots on my face, my face is also real itchy and red, im sure thats because my skin is really dry? 


If the answer to my above question is yes, what type of moisturizer should I use? See alot of things that moisturizers do nothing but damage to skin, help would be nice.

Hyperpigmentations Vacation What To Do?

14 August 2013 - 02:50 PM

Hey, im going on vacation in the next 3 days, and I will be staying on the ocean for a few days and will be exposed to sunlight all day, my face has alooot of red marks from old acne or even some current acne. Also, Iam currently on Accutane 2 40mg/ a day. I was wondering 2 things.


1. I heard sunlight is not good for hyperpigmentation on the face, how am I going to deal with this? What kind of sunscreen should I get?


2. I read that ocean water (salt water) is good for acne and the skin in general, will the salt water help the scaring/hyperpigmentations? Will be in the atlantic ocean.
