Large Pores Or Ice Pick Scars?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

Every winter my cheeks break out in all of these little dots. They are hardly visible at all during the hotter months and I can very easily cover them up but in winter no matter how much make-up I wear they never go away. And it's definitely due to the heat, not just a change in skin colour. I know a lot of people's skin/redness improves as they develop a tan but even in winter if I use sunbeds they are still there.

I'm confused as to whether they are large pores or ice pick scars. When I squeeze them nothing comes out which makes me think it's not just large pores but I've only ever had acne on my chin and forehead- never my cheeks- so I'm not sure how/why there would be scarring? Any insight would be really appreciated!

its irrelevant that you squeezed and nothing came out.. the damage happens when the pressure exerted from your fingers / squeezing took place. you must stop as soon as you can.

I know its difficult
