Hey guys, I had these black spots and a little bit acne on my cheeks. I barely have none on my forehead and I believe I have blackheads. I believe I had this problem for at least 1 or 2 years. I don't really know what kind of skin I have and I don't know what products to get to heal this. The products I use is Neutrogena Oil-Free moisture, Neutrogena Benzoyl Peroxide (10%), and
Neutrogena Oil - Free Acne Stress control Power Clear Scrub 4.2 fl oz.
I really need help I'm almost 2 months into the treatment I started to use AHA because my peeling was crazy I'm also on one pump of BP are use AHA once a week now and I also use jojoba oil mixed in with my moisturizer twice a day I don't understand why I have so much peeling and I moisturize so much that I become oily all day
I have acne which leaves scars and hyperpigmentation all over my face. I'm currently taking 100mg Doxycycline everyday and it doesnt seem to be making that much of an effect. I'm really depressed about this, my confidence has shattered and my social anxiety has doubled.
Not sure if I have PIE or PIH. My active acne has subsided with a 10% BP product and now want to find out what to use next to clear these marks. On my right cheek I have fairly new marks and on my other cheek I have older marks which I suspect might be PIE since back when I had acne in HS I stupidly picked at it thus making me think the blood vessels underneath are damaged.
I've had acne since 10th grade and now I get a few bumps here and there but the only problem is I have marks left behind. I currently use cetaphil to wash my face and I also use Estes lauder night repair. What can I do to get rid of these marks and also some rolling scars? Plz help
I took interest in the acne.org regime after watching a couple big you tubers swearing by the products and decided to give it a try. I have never had huge issues with acne, but I have a lot of acne scars that have been around for years and just an uneven skin tone in general. I was more interested in the AHA glycolic acid, but I bought the whole regime to get my skin used to chemical based products rather than the overpriced "natural" junk I would use from Sephora and whatnot. I have been using the regime for a week now and I seem to have broken more than usual. The acne that I have right now is definitely going to leave small marks, which is a little upsetting but I still want to give the regime a chance. Please let me know if this has happened to you and if it is normal. Im going to keep using the system but Im a little worried at this point...
I am constantly trying to find a cure for my acne but in the process I have caused hyper pigmentation and acne scaring on my face if anyone has any suggestions I need a solution to get rid of the red rash.
I started the acne org regimen one month ago. I feel my acne is clearing up. however. I had dark skin area around my mouth even before I started the regimen. After I started the regimen it is going more dark and dry in that area. hope someone can give me a advice regarding this.
Hi, so for a long time I've been on this site sometimes in tears trying to find something or read reviews on something that could "Help" my acne. But I never made a profile until now, because I need help haha. I hate my acne so much to the point where I've not gone out, skipped holiday events, skipped so much. I don't take pictures with my friends ever, I don't post selfies anymore either lol. It makes me so depressed, i feel like everyone looks at me, I feel so so so ugly because of it, that people won't talk to me because it's so gross, I feel like I look like a disappointment. My family looks at me different, not kidding. I feel so disgusting. And I've tried EVERYTHING
Yes I don't stick to products or remedies for long because I want something to work fast, and when i try new products or remedies I get false hope.
BUT here is my little story
Neither of my parents had bad acne
My sister doesn't have acne.
I don't think any of my family did.
My skin like the rest of them was so nice, I had a baby face in 7th and 8th no pimples, and normal soft skin. Although blackheads were on my chin and when my mom was alive she always wanted me to steam my face so she could take them out, because she said they were gross hated them lol.
9th grade a pimple here or there, but I would freak over it because i wanted clear skin. So i would do all this shit to my face to be pimple free, and I was told the more you mess around with your face the worse it'll get.
WELL I guess so, but the pimples would go away some others would pop up, but compared to know those were literally nothing at all, nobody would point them out, and they were small and not noticeable on android quality cameras.
10th grade I starting getting worse with trying to be a perfectionist, and started putting myself down for every little imperfection on my body, yes I guess I had some body acne, but not bad, but the skin on my body was always dry in the winter. But I would never apply lotion because I did not wanna make it worse, I figured apply lotion would make anything on my body worse (acne)
I think i really stressed myself out bad to be "perfect" I made myself miserable, not a minute went by where I wasn't thinking about it, I literally became psychotic about it. Still to this day in 11th grade now, my acne has now been blown up everywhere, and severe and awful and UGH SO SO SO bad now. I've tried a lot of products and remedies, literally everything. Name something, bet you I have tried it ahaha. I neveer stick to something for more than like 3 weeks lol that might be my problem, but please help, what do I do and what is wrong with my face whats going on ahah LOOK AT THIS SHIT, IT MAKES ME CRY, TEARS IN MY EYES CURRENTLY
p.s my face gets oily, but sometimes dry, sometimes normal. HELP
Currently I am on a regimen of Adapalene .3% every morning after I wash my face with Neutrogena gentle sensitive skin face wash. Then i pat dry and put on Neutrogena sensitive skin moisturizer. I am taking 100 mg doxycycline hyclate twice a day. At night i wash my face with the same wash and pat dry. Then i put on Clindamycin, Benzoyl Peroxide : Topical gel( 1.2-5 %). Then i add the same moisturizer. My acne has lessened, but i am wondering what to do for my post inflammatory hyper pigmentation. I usually wear sunscreen, even in the winter. I feel as though it is not making any progress. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Chronological pictures showcasing my skin's healing of marks and shallow scarring (shallow scarring not very noticeable in the pictures) - begins with pictures of red marks that had already been fading since about May 2011.
I finally completed by acne era.... After resorting to roaccutane.....but I was left with lots of dark acne pigmentation scars. I tried everything..... Until I had Dermamelan mask! On gosh cannot explain ... It's miracle in a jar!

about 5 months ago my very mild acne started to got worse .....now i have a lot of red marks and a few little scars, the worst side is the right one. I don't know if they're going to fade and when, I've got them for the past 4 months or more...also, I have sensitive skin and dermatitis, suddenly my skin got very strange. I am now on oral antibiotics + topical antibiotics and tretinoin. I also have acne on my back :( Do you think these marks will go away? what can I do? thanks:)
This is my acne which I've been battling since the age of 9, yes 9. This will show my acne at it's harshest and calmest. Please do bare in mind that this has taken me great courage to reveal my face like this; however, I feel as I upload these pictures I feel a sense of reassurance; somehow/
