  1. Huh. Well, I basically NEVER touch my face aside from washing it 2x a day and applying moisturizer. And even then I make sure to wash my hands well. The only other things it could be are my cleanser and moisturizer (which NEVER caused me any problems before) or my toner that I started using about a month ago. These are the ingredients, do you think it might be the toner?: Water, Alcohol Denat., Glycerin, Isopropyl Alcohol, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Aminoethanesulfinic Acid, Paeonia Albiflor
  2. I think I already know the answer, but.... normal or no? It's the Mario Badescu drying mask - supposed to help with acne by drying up all the oils.
  3. As you guys obviously know it won't work for everyone... But the ingredients are all stuff you probably have around the house, except ACV which is like $3. I have super sensitive skin but this mask worked fine for me. I used it last night (mask only, didn't bother with the toner), and this morning my pimples were literally 2/3 smaller. Try it, guys!! And if you do let me know how it goes! I've tried SO many homemade recipes - egg mask, honey mask, aspirin mask, yogurt & turmeric mask, etc. A
  4. You guys don't need to be so rude about it. We all on here have varying levels of acne, but we all know what it's like to be self-conscious about our skin... give the guy a break, god... Just because his condition might not be as bad as yours doesn't mean he can't still worry about it. Yes, this is probably the wrong section but still no need to be so rude. You guys of all people know what it feels like to worry about your skin's appearance..
  5. Aw man. You shoulda said "Yeah, Clean & Clear might cure my acne but nothing can cure your ugliness OR your disgusting personality."
  6. Loved my skin the past week or so... LITERALLY like 95% clear... I was ecstatic, thought maybe this was an end to my acne problem. Last night I went to bed with really clear skin. This morning I woke up with 6 new pimples. WTF? I didn't DO ANYTHING!!! Why?? Only one of them is fairly big, the others are on the small side, but... argh... this morning I got up and looked in the mirror (as I do every morning) and felt that horrible sinking feeling...
  7. This is not me, but I have the SAME exact condition on and around the nose - that shiny, greasy, roughness: Are they clogged pores? I've had them for years, though, and they haven't budged AT ALL... and nothing comes out if I squeeze.
  8. Hang in there guys! Try to stay positive, even though I know how lame and cliche this sounds... started getting acne about a year ago. Don't know why, just out of the blue. May have been from stress and lack of sleep. But anyway, I tried just about every home remedy out there - egg mask, aspirin mask, honey mask, green tea/apple cider vinegar, etc - and spent hundreds of dollars on face washes, exfoliators, acne treatments, and face masks. Nothing worked. But about 3 weeks ago I FINALLY found
  9. It's very big, the size of an eraser tip - probably even a bit bigger - and slightly purple-ish in color. And it's very far under the surface, I think, because when I touch it (washed hands of course haha) the area is mostly smooth - I can BARELY feel anything except a very, very slight bump. So even though it's extremely obvious to look at, a huge reddish-purple spot on my face, when you touch the spot you can hardly feel anything.
  10. This is actually the first time I've ever gotten a cyst! Usually I just get pustules and papules haha.. But, one popped up a few days ago... I know that it will scar if picked at, but will it still scar if I just leave it alone? It's not TOO big of a cyst... A bit smaller than a pencil eraser. I'm debating whether or not to get a cortisone shot... I'm not so much worried about the cyst itself as about it leaving a scar.

    NONE!!! Made me break out a TON Didn't reduce pore size at all Before I used this mask, I had a light sprinkling of acne just across my forehead. I used the egg mask on a Monday, Wednesday, and a Friday, and by Saturday my whole face was broken out in cystic acne. It was by far the absolute WORST breakout I have EVER had!!! I thought perhaps I was just purging, so I tried it again a few weeks later when the acne had gone down a bit - NOPE another breakout.... Quite honestly, this is th
