I've just learned about post-inflammatory erythema. What the hell, where do these terms end? Apparently, PIH denotes brown spots whereas red spots indicate PIE. Well, that's not the kind of pie I want. But, are they treated differently, or am I chewing on useless information?

The kojic acid soap, as of now, seems to be working. Given that the process of restoring hyperpigmented skin to normal is a very slow one, I would say that the results I've seen so far are a good sign of progress. But it also seems to be causing - though not significant - a slight adverse effect. It's really a miracle if I find some shit that has any effectiveness at all with no considerable repercussions.

I've just learned of niacinamide serum and I'm tempted to try it. I just want a topical treatment for PIH that won't aggravate existing acne, if such a thing exists.

I'm super selective about everything I buy online, especially acne treatment, and yet I've just been sifting around through failure after failure. I analyze every ingredient in the list for their comedogenic properties, I read reviews, I determine the validity of those reviews (e.g, blacklist anything with reviews stating "I received this product at a steep discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review"), and yet, I spiral down the path of a fallible shopper. Well, I'm putting my fait

Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream. It's the only thing that's providing me decent results. That's all I have to say.

Oh, how convenient, the site went temporarily unavailable when I clicked submit. Let's try again...  It's been 5 months. Quite awhile for nothing to happen. Actually though, after several years, it's finally begun to seem reasonable to believe that my acne has improved somewhat. But not significantly. And not quickly either. Granted, it's not all down to the product, because I haven't been very responsible about maintaining a consistent routine. But, I don't blame myself 100% for that. I'm in a

I was inactive for a little while, for reasons I choose not to specify. I just felt like shit about a number of things. Anyway, here I am again. So......... yeah. I guess I might as well leave an update. Umm, well, I've been tweaking the routine, still trying to find out what works best, and what's either harmful or just does nothing at all. I believe I've concluded that the moisturizer I was using is, indeed, junk, and as such, I need to get a new one. So, combating oil is still a big problem

Scratch what I said about the cleanser. I was wrong. I'm discontinuing the dark spot corrector for now, I might try it again in the future in only a small amount to try and figure out what had that awful effect. As of now, I appear to be headed on the right track. Restarted the Spectro Jel and am still using that medicated body wash on my face, I know it sounds absurd, but it really seems to be working where many others failed.

Actually, I think I'm cutting that cleanser out. I've been experimenting a lot over the course of months and after using that for the first time in awhile, My skin already looks noticeably worse. I don't understand, I ran through all the ingredients and saw nothing that raised a red flag. I'll just resume what I was actually doing before. It may sound impractical, but I was actually using a medicated body wash for my face as well as my upper body. It really did seem to be proving itself useful

Alright, I think I've devised a new game plan. I will simply be using my Spectro Jel cleanser along with the aloe vera gel I use, rinsing with water, and also splashing some in my face from time to time as it gets oily rather fast and I'd like to dissipate it without over-washing. Oh yeah, I'm also using this dark spot corrector stuff for the PIH. Hopefully some relieving results will come, at long last.

Hi.

Hi. As is very, very frequently the case amongst users here, I've battled with acne for several years and have grown quite sick of it. I don't remember when it first started to appear, I never remember the times of such trivial things, and have a fairly porous memory in general. But I know I was probably about 12 - 13, and am 19 + 10.5 months at this particular time. It got progressively worse with time, and has become rather out of hand. Very out of hand. Thankfully, it's not cystic or extra se
