In Topic: Chemical Peel Burn

21 December 2013 - 08:39 AM

I got a small chemical burn on the side of my forehead when I tried using benzol peroxide ontop of tee tree oil on my acne. The pimple did go away and the area is now spot free :) You can exfoliate the chemical burn away over time or find a good doctor that can give you suggestions e.g another peel / laser / cream.

If you have active acne then another deep peel can help your acne.

When I have those acne on my forehead it means I'm having a reaction to something I put on my face or infection in the body. Takes 2-3 weeks to clear up once I identify and stop using what my body doesn't like. Takes one week for these acne to develop when I start something new that my body doesn't like.

Last time I had food poisoning. Came up a day later. Lucky I was on antibiotics and it went away by the time my medication finished.

Have you been using something new lately??

The mac cleanse off oil doesn't break me out and leaves no oil residual feeling on the skin.

I hope you will find something that works for you!!

Here is stuff that works for me while growing up and still experimenting.

When my acne was as bad as yours in my late teens my mum took me to the cosmetic doctor during my school holidays. I had 6 peels done on my skin. I could not leave the house. Basically every time my face finished peeling I went back for another deep peel. 6 treatments later i had no acne and no scars. Treatment duration was roughly 12 weeks. Went back to school looking normal and feeling great :)

Then I started working and had sever acne again. I can't take 12 weeks off. So I took  roaccutane. I only saw improvements in my skin...they say it gets worse before it gets better but my skin must've been at its peak already because I didn't notice it getting any worse. It only got better over time which was great!

Two months ago I started getting acne again. i went back to proactive but I can't use benzoyl peroxide anymore. I don't know why :( It burns my eyes even though i only apply a thin layer on my jaw line. I was in a meeting at work with burning and watery eyes 3 days after I applied the benzoyl peroxide. My eyes peeled from the effect. It also gave me deep winkles on my forehead and eye area :(

I was using products that contains aha/bha and increase the concentration once my skin is used to it.  I also use 100% tea tree and sulphur cream. It worked slowly but it worked!

I also take vitamin tablets now but it's mainly for general health so can't comment on it's effectiveness:  multi vitamin, vitamin D, silicea, vitamin c, probiotics and calcium tablets. I avoid dairy.

I visited mum and saw how great the skin on her side of the family is! They all see the same cosmetic doctor (the one that initially treated my acne). He gave me some creams that he concocted to use and told me to see him once it's finished. I have started using it for only a week so can't say. But my non acne areas look brighter...and I still use my tee tree and sulphur cream (I can't find the courage to let go of them yet).

Your skin looks amazing. I wouldn't worry about make up. There is nothing you need to coverup.

If you're worried about your redness then look into getting a green colour corrector.

Your skin is so nice you can wear tinted moisturiser with bronzer to keep it natural looking or a very very light handed use of powder/ liquid foundation.
