Dealing With Acne

Just over a year ago a close friend of mine went from 1 or 2 hormonal pimples to severe inflamed cystic acne. We all know the emotional toll acne can hold over the person suffering, but what I was surprised about were peoples reactions. CLEARLY she was insecure about it, and CLEARLY no one would WANT to have that on their face. I worked with her at the time and she would get costumers come up to her giving her tips to "wash her face regularly" or to "keep her bed sheets clean". No shit Sherlock,

Wearing foundation over the benzoyl peroxide & dry skin makes everything look worse, the flakes look like acne bumps and it's NOT fun. Plus I find that when I apply foundation it bunches all up. Sigh, how much longe

Diy Mask For Hyperpigmentation

As per my dermatologist of a cousin, my skin (light, combination skin) creates the perfect conditions for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. That being said, I've experimented with many natural home-made remedies over the years, and seem to have found a solution! Mix together equal parts of baking soda and manuka honey and form a paste. Apply once a day (I use it in the morning) for about 5-10 minutes and then rinse! It works wonders in evening out complexion and lightening any hyperpigmentati

Starting The Journey

Oh the arduous road that has led us all here and grouped us into a "community" with a common problem: ACNE. Oh, what a pesky little thing acne is. Clean skin = self esteem at a billion. One pimple = self esteem -10. Acne is quite powerful in it's nature of making us feel inferior to the rest of the world, in that sense I am glad that Acne.org exists, reassuring us that we are not the only ones in this world with this issue. I started the regimen today, and I'm hopeful! I would say my acne
