What Exactly Is This?

Recommended Posts

So as you can see, I don't have severe acne. But this does get me down and I always see people starring. I had bad acne on my chin and forehead in my teens but never on my cheeks so I'm not sure why my cheeks are so affected. My skin was almost perfect between about 14-17 then the winter of when I was 17 my skin suddenly became like this and I'm really not sure why. (I'm 23 in 2 weeks). It's only ever like this in winter or colder months- it's not perfect in the summer but a LOT better but I can never really enjoy it because I know that as soon as it gets colder, my skin will start to look like this again.

It's just like huge pores but they're fill with dry skin (I think) rather than puss. When I squeeze them nothing comes out it's just bits of makeup always sit in them like you can see here. I use my clarisonic mia2 1-2 times a day and exfoliate a few times a week. I also have a few really rich over night moisturisers which help a bit but it seems like nothing I do gets rid of the flakes inside the pores. Does anyone else have skin like this? I feel like I never see anyone who has skin similar to mine!! as I said I know it's not awful but it does bring me down and I am a different person in daylight compared to when I'm inside in dim lighting!!

Thank you in advance for any input :)

also you can see on my cheek I have a few dark red spots...these are always there but far more noticeable in winter. I'm not really sure what it is- is it hyper-pigmentation?
