  1. I'll consider the TCA cross! otherwise, i'll keep looking for treatments. Thanks so much, glad I got so much information.
  2. i have one.... when you take pictures/selfies and you either have to find a lighting which doesn't show your redness or filter it a lot!!! so annoying
  3. I have sensitive skin too! When I was flaking about a couple months ago, i stopped using a cleanser in the morning. my morning routine is to just rinse my face with lukewarm water and top it off with a moisturizer. if i washed my face in the morning with a cleanser, my skin would be super dry and flaky. i wear make-up also, and what i use to remove my foundation off is with a cleansing oil. the cleansing oil really removes every trace of my foundation and leaves my skin moisturized and not dry.
  4. Thanks for your reply. I'm glad it's minimal scarring.. but i'm also googling about the TCA cross and it looks quite scary and risky to me. Do you think my scars will go away if I leave them and don't interfere with them? Yes, I've been struggling with acne for a little over 2 years now. My cycle has finally 'calmed' down and I'm breaking out less now.. I guess it's a matter of time. I don't know if this helps but i'm drinking lemon water every 2 days now.. it has made my skin less red. yes the
  5. would someone please tell me if these are extremely large pores or acne scars? crossing my fingers right now because i hope they aren't acne scars... how do i get rid of this? certainly, it isn't too noticeable to other people, but it IS noticeable under very bright lighting. is there any cure? if they are acne scars, what scars are they... i have mild acne all over my face and body.
  6. also, i forgot to mention up there that when you sleep during the night, i suggest you to leave your door opened so when you're sleeping, your room isn't stuffy and isn't interfering with ur skin. it helped my skin too
  7. it's been a little over 2 years and i still suffer from very widespread mild acne from my forehead, cheeks, chin, nose, temples, jawline, neck, chest, and back. on top of that, my skin is very red and it's oily in the t-zone. also, very sensitive as almost anything can aggravate my skin. i have tried antibiotics (minocycline which had cleared me up for 2 months and then just got worse), facials (not good at all, also very pricey, aggravated my acne), benzoyl perioxide (burned my skin...face got
  8. Hi, i'm currently taking Chinese medicine (powder form though) after trying antibiotics (which made my skin SUPER clear for the first two months, and got worse and worse till it was worse than what i started with). the chinese powdered medicine HAVE worked and its my 6th month now but i'm still constantly breaking out with tiny whiteheads. If what you're taking right now is not helping you at all, i suggest you go to other chinese doctors. It took me awhile to find a doctor who didn't just give
  9. I am not sure what is exactly in the powdered medicine but i'm pretty sure it has a bit of laxatives in there. I know it's bad to not know the ingredients i'm putting in my body but she's my family friend and i put my trust in her hands. I see her once every two weeks and take it 3x a day. I live in Canada, British Columbia!
  10. I've also had a good result with Chinese medicine! I'm glad you were too! Hooray
  11. I've been to many dermatologists and they all prescribed me pills and cleaners/tropical creams. I decided to finally go to a Chinese doctor. I am currently taking Chinese medicine right now 3x a day. It has been 3 months and it is slowly clearing up! My bowel movements have improved and a lot of tiny bumps have disappeared. However, I still do get occasional big pimples but they go away in a week. I'm so pleased with my results. I believe that acne begins from the inside and therefore, everyone
  12. I've been to a Chinese Acupuncture place and the doctor just got a needle and poked both of my ears. Blood came out and he told me it helped me "release some toxins" and "fire" lingering in my body. I got it done 3 times and there was no difference. I haven't tried Acupuncture but I have a feeling it's all a myth, just my opinion. If your regimen is starting to work, I suggest you stick with it. Look more into acupuncture if you keep on breaking out. Good luck!
  13. Today is my first day without picking too! I was tempted a couple of times but I stopped, thought about it, and just walked away from the mirror. I'm determined to stop picking completely. Good luck on this! It will take a lot of patience.
  14. I skin pick everyday and I've noticed that whenever I skin pick, I blank or zone out and I'm not fully aware of myself until I suddenly zap out of it and stop. It's like I enter a trance of state for an hour. I don't know if it's just me but I blank out every time I skin pick. Anyone else do this too? Also, does anyone have any tips/tricks to STOP skin picking completely? Because whenever I touch my skin, my skin gets majorly worse.. I've stopped skin picking with my fingernails but now I've b
  15. I do not know if it is just me but first off, I apologize in advance if I do offend anyone in any way. I'm just stating my opinion and how I really feel. I've been suffering mild to moderate acne for two years. These two years have been the worst years of my entire life. I've tried using all treatments ranging from antibiotics to powdered medicine to tropical creams. I haven't found the cure for my acne yet but I'm still clinging on that hope that one day I will eventually end up with clear ski
