At A Loss What To Do For My Skin.. Any Advice On What Type Of Acne This Is?

Recommended Posts

My skin hasn't ever really been that bad, I've always had spots on my face but nothing that ever really bothered me at all.

These past few weeks though my face has just broke out crazy(to me anyway) and I've not really changed anything in my skincare/makeup so I'm confused

I do wear quite heavy coverage foundation which I know isn't helping my acne but I've worn this same one for years and it has never done this to me.

It just keeps getting worse day by day and new pimples keep forming on my lower cheeks where I have always been clear.

Does this look like acne cosmetica?

Oh it is a big problem looks like you should take acid for it but first confirm with doctor. I think laser treatment will also work for you.

Hey I dont know what the above poster is talking about...

Anyhow its really not that bad! I was in the same position earlier this year I started breaking out on my cheeks and Ive never broken out on my cheeks before ever. I know mine was caused by stress any chance it could be related to something like that?

What foundation are you using at the moment and are you using any treatment for your skin?

It doesn't look as bad in these pictures maybe because of the lighting.. but it's definitley alot more red/angry than this shows and you can see lots more tiny pimples. I also know it isn't as bad as a lot of peoples but it still gets me down.

Not really sure what they are talking about either but if it was an insult then please get off my topic.

Using revlon colorstay for oily/combination skin and I don't really use any treatments just the simple refreshing gel wash and sometimes the body shop tea tree creamy cleanser. Haven't been any more stressed out than usual, think I might try and switch up my foundation to a non comodegenic one.
