This site is vert conveluted, so this is tking a long time to author.
The ONLY thing that has worked (even after even my doctor said nothing would) was a combination of things. Here they are. I did have an accident and after the cr wreck, I was left with severe scaring which I cover with Estee Lauder's 'Undercover Green' makeup along with DermaBlend. I used this to cover scarring along with the acne until I cleared-up 100%. I am about to tell you what cleared me up 100% but right now, here's what I use to cover the scarring which literally disappears on my face. Remember, I have about a 3" gash on the left side on my cheek, so this isn't something that is easily covered. And I still work as a part-time model nd get away with it.
Here's what I use to cover:
When I first started breaking out severely subsequent to a severe car wreck, I used Estee Lauder Undercover green to hide the red tones. Guys can also put it on over anything red so long as their skin is exfoliated and moisturized because it blends right in and you do not appear to be wearing makeup.
Then, I apply a mix of the Undercover Green with Revlon Beyond Natural (in the triangle tube) in the lightest shade. I always choose the lightest shade, as makeup is basically like Bondo for a car. They fill-in car dents with Bondo...and then paint over it. So, as a makeup artist, I thought, "Why not impliment the exact same theory?" It works. I use the lightest shade of makeup because it reflects the light and makes the skin appear flawless. Then I fill-in what is indented with Revlon (also in the lightest shade) age-defying cream to powder makeup. it comes with a concelor, but it's too dark and too heavy and textured for the job. Use the actual foundation for the filling-in of the indentions or better known as "pock marks." If you have lots of money to spend, you can also use that miracle stuff Dermablend which is usually at the Elizabeth Arden counter, but honestly, I prefer to use the cheaper stuff because it seems to actually work much better.
Then...this is what we learn in makeup class: USE NOT REGULAR TRANSLUSCENT FACIAL POWDER BUT USE IN FACT, REGULAR GROCERY STORE CORNSTARCH. I AM NOT KIDDING. JUST CORNSTARCH. THIS STUFF SETS ANY MAKEUP, MEN CAN BLOT THEIR SKIN WITH IT AND NEVER LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE MAKEUP ON. IT IS SHEEP, NON-CAKEY AND WILL NEVER CLOG PORES. TRY IT AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN!
HERE IS WHAT CLEARED ME UP EVEN THOUGH THE DERMOTOLOGIST SAID I NEVER WOULD:
It is actually a combination of things. I coud go into how after the car wreck, I was scarred and didn't se any hop to ever look normal again. Then I startd breaking-out, I broke-out SO bady, they gave me everything from Accutane to sterroids. ACCUTANE DOES WORK! IF YOU ARE ON IT, KEEP WITH IT!! But, here is the skin care regimine that I swear by:
1. Purpose Soap. It's my moms old stand by and I never believed her until I had nothing else to loose but to try it. it works.
2. Pernox cleanser. This stuff is almost impossible to find, save ebay and amazon. It is very costly. But, used daily it works like nothing I have ever seen. IT EVEN CLEARED UP MY FIANCE ROBBIE'S SKIN ECZEMA OR PSORIASIS (WHATEVER IT WAS) ON HIS HANDS! This is truly a miracle.
3. Oil of Olay 7 signs of ging skin cream in unscented fragrance-free; comes in the pump jar and in the round package, available at any drug store. I do not know why I decided to use this but I think someone gave me a jar or sample years ago and it works miracles.
4. Persagel or Persa Gel y Johnson & Johnson which is used for spot treatment. It's also OTC as everything else here is.
*Also, this may sound nuts but the best thing to get rid of a cystic acne cyst is baking soda and water. Make a paste of it and put it on the affected area, hold in place with a band-aid. It will take about 3 dys but it will draw out everything and it will clear right up. Use Neosporin over the area also with the paste, as it begins to heal.
*A nurse told me that the majority of Cystic Acne cases are due to infections that we do not even know we have aong with the overproduction of oil. She said use hydrogen peroxide (this also works) as a toner and then use the baking soda thing when you are at home or overnight. Then use neosporin as a moisturizer (a little goes a long way) and she also said to put a dab of the neosporin in your nose to get the antibiotic into your blood stream which will cure the infection which causes the acne. It makes way under zero sense to me but it did work. Hope this all helps someone.
