Acne // Nothing is working

Recommended Posts

I've gotten small bumps all over my forehead and I have a lot of blackheads on my cheeks. I have oily skin, and I wash my face twice a day and follow up with a light mosturizer. I've stayed clear of makeup for 2 weeks and if anything, my skin got worse. I've been eating healthy, staying away from greasy and unhealthy foods and my skin looks the same. Nothing is working and it's getting worse. I feel so insecure

Oily skin usually results in the formation of clogged pores (or closed comedones) like the type of acne you have. Unfortunately, I do not know how to stop overactive sebaceous glands. However, I know how to treat clogged pores. I used to have a lot of those comedones, and I got rid of them using mandelic acid. It's a pretty nice exfoliant, you should give it a try.

You can also try to use a pumpkin masque for those bumps and the charcoal masque for your blackheads and oily skin. These have been working pretty well for me so I thought you might also want to give it a try.

What's a pumpkin masque?

It's a masque made from natural/organic ingredients which I found and currently using. I don't know if links are allowed here but maybe you can try to search it on Google instead. Banish Acne Scars then look for their pumpkin masque.
