  2. Hello guys, I just want to know how serious are my acne scars (out of 10). PS: Most of them are post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (or not, I'm still confused). And the images are really close enough in daylight.. Will fading away PIH improve my appearance? PICS included: https://ibb.co/hOcGGe https://ibb.co/kq0spz
  3. does anyone know anything on how to get rid of rosacea/blackheads/pimples on nose? thanks
  4. Hi guys so I’m pretty insecure when it comes to my skin, I don’t have severe acne but individual pimples and scars. I have had this pimple for bout 4 days and it got hard and scabby at the top, so I recently just picked the scab ( I know I shouldn’t of picked it, but it was making me really irritated) and basically now there’s a small hole at the top I do it.
  5. I’m a teenager and acne’s been an issue for my since I was 12, so about a year and a half now. It’s clearing up with my African Black Soap and Bentonite Clay, but I still have small colourless bumps under the skin that I can’t get rid of no matter how much water I drink or clean my skin. I really want to know how to get rid of blackheads and whiteheads too without pore strips or scrubs as they’re bad for your skin. How do I get rid of these bumps, blackheads and acne scars safely? (apple cider vinegar breaks me out; so does Tea tree oil, Vitamin E oil and honey).
  6. Last night i found a pimple on my cheek, near my nose. It looked like every other pimple i've ever had, and like an idiot i decided to try and pop it. I heard it pop and the white on the tip disappeared, but nothing came out, i think it popped under my skin. Went to bed and it was fine, but when i woke up the whole area above and on it was pretty swollen, right next to my cheek and just under my eye. It's slightly red, slightly painful and when pressed some parts are firm, but only firm around the pimple, which is just a small red dot now, a drastic change from last night. I would like to know if this is serious or if it'll go away if i leave it.
  7. I started breaking out about two years ago and ever since I've been trying to clear my skin. I know it's mostly hormones but I just want to find out how I can clear it. I have spots on my forehead, some acne scars on my cheek, spots on my chin, blackheads on my chin, nose, forehead and some on my cheek and no whiteheads. I use african black soap, tried witch hazel, benzoyl peroxide, doing NOTHING, vitamin E oil and so much more. All they did was make it worse. African black soap is kind of helping but not much. I also use Bentonite clay. Is there anything else I can try that helps people?
  8. Hey, I'd be REALLY happy if someone could help me out. I've been experiencing acne since the past 1+1/2 month and I have oily/combination skin. I'm sorry for the graphic description that follows. If I scrub my face, the white heads come back the next day. My whole face has started to look bumpy due to white heads in my pores. I had really bad pimples and cysts that cleared out but left red marks. I was happy that my skin had finally stopped hurting when my white heads appeared again this month followed by puss filled swollen areas (even if i squeez the puss out it just forms again. It's inside my skin) and pimples. Some white heads are hard pieces of white stuff that I can press out. My pores look huge. I TRIED PRESSING SOME WHITE HEADS OUT AND GUESS WHAT?! A little depression formed on ON MY CHEEK. I'm freaking out. How do i stop this endless cycle. Now it's actually actually scarrig bad . I have previous red marks and now these tiny details depressions. Not to mention my whole face hurts. What do i do???
  9. Hi everyone. I have this weird bump on my nose and I have no idea what it is! It started as just a bump on my nose - it was raised, under the skin, not red or inflamed at all. Just a bump. I had this for about 2 - 3 weeks and it barely went down at all. I use Retin-A for hormonal acne on my chin so I applied that thinking it might help but nothing happened. So I got really impatient and squeezed it, and this weird little black spot came to the top of the bump. It's actually pretty small, if you look close, it looks like a blackhead on my nose. The only problem is the black thing is STILL under my skin, so the pore isn't actually open to the air... so it can't be a blackhead? I really have no idea. I started messing with it and ending up puncturing my skin trying to squeeze it out. That didn't work so I just left it alone and it scabbed over. I let it heal and the scab fell off naturally... but it's still there. The other weird thing is that when I take a hot bath the black spot becomes much more visible, almost like it needs to be extracted, and the bump looks a lot bigger. If I press on it gently it feels slightly hard. Eventually as my skin cools down it will "shrink" and look somewhat better. I'm going to my derm next week but I just thought I'd post this and see if anyone had an guesses. It really doesn't photograph well (took with my crappy iPhone camera) but I'll attach one anyways. This is pre-bath so it doesn't look as noticeable. BEWARE of very creepy picture where I've blurred out all my facial features.
  10. I have no idea what it is, its unpoppable. Been there for 3 months. Any help would be truly appreciated.
  11. Hey guys, just wanted to share a video I made on various techniques and tricks to get a clear skin. Tell me what you think! Have an awesome day :)
  12. HI! Quick background on my skin regimen: I am on retin a (nightly) and onexton (daily) which keeps my skin pretty at bay. I also ice my face a few times a day for like two minutes and use the neatrogena light therapy face mask daily. I moisturize with a night cream at night and a sunscreen day cream during the day. I get pustules usually on my chin for the most part! I get PIH marks regardless of whether or not I pop my pimples so I usually just pop them when they reach a head and they go away. Recently I have been getting pimples that seem like they are going to come to a head and I can even see yellow if I push my tongue on It underneath but now they havent been coming to a head and instead have been VERY slowly going away (2 weeks) by having a layer of the pimple basically form on top of it and then that layer will peel off. It looks like basically I am drying the top and then the top falls off then this process has to repeat like every two days until it finally is flat. I do not like this as it takes forever and I have a massive pimple for atleast a week. I just want it to come to a head!! SHould I stop putting my retin a and onexton on it so it doesn't dry up as much? or maybe just stop one of those? I am scared though that this will make the pimple bigger but idk!! someone pls help me or tell me this has also happened to them!
  13. Hi im hoping someone can help me. I am from NY but go to college in south carolina. All year my skin was relatively stable while at school. A few things would pop up here and there, nothing major (i have extreme anxiety from acne so this was huge for me) However, I came home for the summer and now my skin has gone HAYWIRE. Literally everywhere. As soon as i look away from the mirror i swear one more thing comes in. I have an awful picking habit so this is really starting to scare me. I dont know what to do about it my spot treatment just isnt working and none of my remedies are either. can someone please help?
  14. Hey guys, just wanted to share with you my personal progress on how I cleared my acne in 6 weeks! Now I feel way better, and I finally have gotten my life together Here is my video on how I fixed my skin, cheers!
  15. Acne is such a cruel and underrated disease and I'll never understood why we never get sympathy but people with other diseases do. Besides that I've been alone since around 14 and i'm 22 now. Acne just wrecked my teen years and after two courses of Accutane its finally gone minus some redness. How am I suppose to salvage a social life at this point. I have major trust issues because everyone avoided me in school because of my face. No one at this age seems open to making new friends anyway.
  16. Hey guys, I am using different serums and exfoliants to decrease scarring, but I don't know if these methods are correct, tell me what you think! Cheers :)
  17. In the span of overnight (6-8 hours) this giant cyst formed on the left side of my mouth. Was wondering if I should lance it. If not, is it possible for someone to provide me with some instruction.
  18. Hello I am kind of concerned about this pimple on the side of my nose. At first I thought it was a pimple and at this time I wasn't aware that it was bad to pop it so I took a clean needle and poked the head and squeezed but only blood and clear liquid came out so I left it alone. After a while I tried again but I noticed it was numb and this was distressing I took the needle and went to see if I could feel anything at all and I swear I must have went a cm deep before I hit the end of this hole, I squeezed again with a pimple tool thing and some weird pus that was gooey and looked like mucus came out. I'm not sure what this is or if I will have a scar from doing this but the main thing i'm concerned about is why it is numb.
  19. Hi everybody, i'm writing because after 1 month of the regiment i am having a lot of breakouts. At the beginning everything was great, my skin cleared up very good but now in the last week my skin started to breakout with big pimples and cistic acne. I even started with AHA+ to stop the breakout but nothing... what i should do ? Was working so good at the beginning In the morning i put the products on my face, but i keep it all day long and before bed i wash my face and apply again the products but with AHA+. I am doing something wrong ? Please help me thanks a lot!
  20. I know, I know I'm screwed. I don't usually pop pimples but this one was just too annoying to bear. I was successful at getting rid of the white, hard "gunk" of the pimple. But then it resulted to this (the biggest red spot). Is this what you call a scab? It was swollen a while ago, but I placed a cold compress to de-swell it, and it worked (now flat). It no longer hurts and no longer burns since I applied aloe vera. But I'm very worried. Will it scar? Should I put Terramycin or something? What should I do? :( Please ignore the other red spots. Those are just acne marks.
  21. HELP MEEE!

    Hello, everyone. I’ve had this on my left cheek for a while now, and I don’t know what it is or how to get rid of it. Does anyone have any clues?
  22. My skin had finally cleared up - until one big read pimple showed up right next to my nose.I made a huge mistake by popping it. I squeezed this stupid pimple until puss was oozing out and it was terribly red. By this time I had realized my mistake, but it was too late. I gently washed it and put some Adapalene Gel on it and then went to sleep hoping that it would reduce by the morning. The next morning, I wake up to an even bigger pimple with a scab and some puss on it. Not only that, but somehow that area around the pimple was red and it was covered with some plastic feeling thing (not sure how else to explain. It was kind of hard and brown looking) that wouldn’t come off. So now my blemish had just gotten three times bigger.I tried to put aloe Vera gel on it, tried to put Adapalene Gel (again!) on it, and washed it. I knew this was wrong, but I did it in blind rage and stupidity. Finally, after nothing worked, I just left it alone.... until I didn’t. I picked the scab and some of the saran-wrap feeling stuff off.Since then, I’ve left it alone and nothing has gotten any better. And even worse, I’m almost absolutely positive that this is going to leave a mark. I am so stressed out about the aftermath of this disaster. HEELPP I’m desperate for some kind of solution to the huge mess I’ve caused. Here you can see the pimple and the hard stuff (I have no clue what it is ) around it.
  23. Hi, I am 31 years old (Indian origin). I have had clear skin all my life, until last year in September 2017. I started breaking out acne all across my jawline, chin and cheeks. A visit to the DERM and they put me on Doxycycline saying that i had hormonal imbalances. I took it for 4 months but my acne reduced only little bit and never cleared up completely. Once i stopped taking doxycycline, my face started breaking out again and this time much more badly including the forehead. I tired all OTC treatments like benzoyl peroxide and even stopped eating dairy completely. But nothing worked. I still continue to breakout badly with no respite. I made a second visit to DERM today and she prescribed me amoxicillin 500mg(twice a day) with food. I don't know if this will work or not? She told me that this will be a life long battle. I am really depressed and frustrated with acne breakouts. I don't feel like going anywhere out including office or meeting friends as my face is completely covered with marks, scares and acne(old and new). Please help -- If anyone has faced the same issue and got cured of severe adult acne. No one in my family has had severe or moderate acne before. Also, I don't want to go on any medicines/orals/topicals that are not pregnant friendly, since i am trying to conceive as well.
