  1. If I use tinted BP is it still possible for me to get a tan? Does it block out any sun rays at all? It is spring break and I want to get tan but I put tinted BP on my face every morning and was wondering if it had any effect.
  2. And I am pretty nervous about the picture that will be taken. Does acne show up real well in these pics or is it harder to notice? I can just imagine how ugly it would look...
  3. Lately, my acne has gotten totally out of control. It used to be managable and not totally terrible. Now, it just sucks. I am 16 and want to see a dermatologist and possibly get a solution to my problem. However, I am embarassed and scared to ask my parents about going to a derm. I dont know why I am, I know they know I have acne and such. I dont know if they will even let me go. Any tips? Also, what happens when you go to a dermatoligist? Does he/she just examine your face and then prescribe
  4. Lately, I have been getting a lot of white zits. I pop them with a needle, but they return in the same place. Is there anything I can do to prevent these? Also, just today I noticed at the corner of my mouth there is an area of skin that is turned darker with a white head in the middle. I have popped this many times, but it returns within 10 minutes. What is going on?
  5. What sort of a effect does a tanning bed have on acne?
  6. I dont know, today I was just thinking, and I thought that maybe my acne isnt as bad as I think. I mean, when I look at myself in the mirror, I see the acne and it disgusts me. But I'm thinking that other people look at my acne and they dont think it is as bad as I do. I mean, i havent confirmed this, it is just a thought. Like, they dont feel it at all, they just see it and it probably doesnt look as bad as I think it does when I look in the mirror. Oh well, probably wishful thinkin.
  7. 1. dont ever wear makeup, youll regret it for the rest of your life. It's like wearing panties. It'll scar your self esteem as a guy. 2. It's tinted for a reason isnt it? Im pretty sure that it does cover acne up. Which of course would make it make up. Well, my self esteem is pretty low with my acne. So, anything that would cover it up would be a big help.
  8. Does tinted BP help disguise the appearance of ance at all? I am a male, 15 years old and dont really want to wear makeup. So, does the tinted BP provide any coverup what so ever?
  9. I have been on the regimine for a month and a half now. I have seen no improvement in my acne. In fact, It has actually gotten worse. I dont know what to do....
  10. I always get a shiny face throughout the day. I follow the regimine, and like 30 minutes after applying the BP my face is all shiny. My forehead is the worst, but the rest of my face is shiny too. How do I stop it from being shiny?
  11. I just applied sulfur to my face...waited then washed it off. Is it safe to apply benzoyle peroxide now?
  12. I have been on proactiv since about last year. I was on it for about a month, using it both night and in the morning. It didnt really do much. I stopped using it after about 4 months. I recently restarted it, but am only using it at night. When I do it in the morning, my face always feels horribly dried out. However, my acne isnt improving at all. Does me not washing in the morning have an effect on this?
