How severe is my acne(pics included)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

thanks for clicking my post...
i just quickly wanted to know how severe or bad my acne is.
ive had acne for about three years now and i have it on my back and chest too( back is worse chest is pretty good just clogged white pores but back is very bad...)

I havent had any face breakout in about 1-2 weeks now and i feel pretty good and kinda scared too. 

Can you please tell me how severe my acne, scarring etc are.

Thank you very much!!

I would say mild as I cant see any pustules at all. just closed comedones. A BHA and Benzol peroxide would sort that out or just benzol peroxide.

Not severe at all. Looks like you have some PIH scarring which can be wiped right out with Vitamin E oil (I buy my oil from Trader Joe's, $4.99) As far as active acne, I see nothing. No cysts, no white heads.

Very mild, in fact i wouldn't even say you had it. Id love to have skin as clear as yours so you don't have anything to worry about :)

Thanks, I will be trying benzoyl peroxide as I am already on some cream and moisturizer, plus some soap that makes my face feel pretty dry and smooth(my face is very oily), thank you lots!

If you use benzoyl peroxide try and get 2.5% or if you cant get 5% and you will have to moisturise after you use it because your face ill peel until your skin gets used to it and if you don't moisturise you can end up with a worse problem. get an oil free gel moisturiser, only one I know that is 100% non comedogenic is Clinique dramatically different GEL moisturiser, its £30ish (don't know US price) but it lasts ages so worth the money. good luck x

Thanks for your reply,

i have been thinking about giving benzoyl a go but i am judt kinda scared cuz I take roaccutane and it really ruined my skin so I am always kinda scared to go for the heavy ones,
But I will be trying benzoyl with moisturiser as you suggested.

Thanks, u too xx

I would it's mild-medium 
drink herbal teas, they will keep acne away
chamomile, mint, honeybrush, lavender, nettle, burdock, milk thistle, echinacea 
just a list of herbs that combat acne
high end store usually carry them
dont use, if you use other drugs

Use face cleanser at night only
add pinch of soda to your cleanser every time you wash your face
don't use scrubs, they'll spread acne and blackheads all over face
Don't pop if you don't want scars
do gelatin peel/YouTube and mask after that like buttermilk apply for 15min and rinse
use lavender essential oil on pimples
try to eat more fruits and vegetables 
always finish washing face with cold water to close pores
drink herbal teas to prevent future acne
honeybrush, mint, chamomile, nettle, milk thistle, burdock, sage, echinacea

Thnx for the reply, i will try your tips and commit to it. However is it really better to face cleanse only at night? Bcause i work out and sweat in the morning. Would water washing be enough or should i face cleanse in the morning only?

You can use cleanser in the morning
and at night wash face with raw honey

Super mild. Both of you. Most people on here would kill for skin like yours. Frankly I wouldn't even say you had acne, you have the normal skin the rest of us can only dream of. Lucky you! Posts like this make me feel so depressed about my own skin it's not even real....
