  1. Hi! I used to have quite the case of acne and it left all these discolourations behind. I've been battling red marks since I was 12 and high school is coming up and I'm beyond scared to show up like this. I'm not sure if it's hyperpigmentation or post-acne erythema.. I'm using Dan's AHA every night and SPF 110 every morning. I've been using it for eight months now to no avail. The pictures might be blurry, you just have to click on them. Not sure why it does that. Any recommendations? Th
  2. It's best to consult your dermatologist so they can thoroughly assess the circumstances and give you proper advice. Just to be on the safe side, since Accutane isn't your average medication.
  3. I'm the same way! At first, picking my skin started out as an occasional mistake but now it's turned into a nasty habit. I can't stand feeling bumps on my face, so I scratch and pick until my face turns beet red. Then I suffer the consequences. Before trying to eradicate your picking problem, you should try to find the root cause of your picking. From there, it gets a lot easier. I started wearing a rubber band around my wrist and giving myself a little snap everytime I picked. Put ban
  4. I use Neutrogena Clear Face! It's oil-free, non-comedogenic. and has SPF 55+ to ensure maximum safety out in the sun. Yeesh, I sound like an advertiser. http://www.neutrogena.com/product/clear+face+liquid+lotion+sunscreen+broad+spectrum+spf+55.do?sortby=ourPicks
  5. I would kill to have your skin right now. It's all a matter of perspective, really. I think your complexion is amazing and can easily be treated seeing as there isn't too much inflammation! Please never give up, there have been people battling cystic acne & acne conglobata for years but they're all clear now because they never lost hope. Everyone around me has clear skin which is why it's so hard to talk to people about it, because they just don't understand the emotional devastation a
  6. congratulations! (: Everyone pretty much summed it up above. Changing your regimen is a big risk, and if you're really that desperate to maintain your glowing skin, don't stop using it! good luck :3
  7. hey there I agree with everything you just said! Acne is frustrating, especially when you feel like you're the only one going through it. But you're not alone, trust me. Always have hope & never give up. EVERY single acne condition is treatable. So keep your chin up, you are beautiful. Do not let temporary flaws control your life! As for your skin, I don't know the severity or type since I don't have a picture, but based off your description, it sounds like you need to find a good r
  8. hey guys ! thanks for the feedback(: yeah the pics are a bit blurry you just have to click on them to see the actual picture. I haven't seen a dermatologist, since the ones in my area aren't that professional or trustworthy. But I'll give it a try - thanks(:
  9. hi there(: this is my first post so please don't bite! this is the best my acne has been in a while, but still makes me suffer from insecurity & low self esteem. I hate putting on makeup everyday & I hate the stares and comments.. I need to do something before summer ends. My face is primarily red flat marks, left behind from previous pimples & nodules. The rest is just acne & pimples. I use a salicylic acid cleanser, (neutrogena deep clean). I use it at night only, t
