  1. Like the title said can CSR help blackheads? My skin seems to have a big problem with exfoliation. I have alot of blackheads and closed comodnes (sp?). Seems like I get clogged pores VERY easily which then leads into some cystic acne. I rarely ever get pustules just when the cysts form to a head and I don't get cysts often. I do however have alot of blackheads all over my body, back, shoulders, chest, neck, ears, face and I've even found a few on my arms. Is there somthing that could benefit
  2. I have pretty much solved my cystic acne and whiteouts with the use of minocycline combined with retin-a and cyclimindine (sp?). Anyways my problem now (and the biggest I think) is that my face is covered in hundreds of clogged pores making my face seem very bumpy (almost looks like I have a large amount of scarring), some of the bumps are blackheads while others are flesh colored. No matter what type though I can squeeze them fairly easily and alot of stuff comes out of it (hard white) and the
  3. Also, if any of you have any regimens using these 2 products could you please tell me what they are and how well they worked? thanks
  4. Basically I was prescribed Avita (tretinoin) Gel .025% which is basically retin-a I was told... and I was told to use it every other day I was also given Clindamycin Phosphate Gel USP, 1% to use twice a day Has anyone heard of this medicine? It supposedly an antibiotic. Its ingredients are... Clindamiycin phosphate equivalent to clindamycin 10mg (1%), allantoin, carbomer 934P, methylparaben, polyethylene glycol 400, propylene glycol, sodum hydroxide, and purified water. ANyways if anyone
  5. Go toDrugstore.com and search for it. They have the ingredients for the products on the page.. But there is a brand called Alpha Hydroxy Lotion SPF 15 which I'm considering buying... Glycolic acid is in the proactiv toner if you have any of that laying around... I think they can both be found in moisturiser forms... I would reccomended trying to find one with a SPF in it too.........
  6. Hey, Im EXACTLY like you, picking and everything. Nobody has been able to tell me how to get rid of this, I'm trying proactiv now but its not doing anything My theory is that our skin has a problem with exfoliation and we can't slough off skin cells correctly so it clogges our pores making blackheads and non-inflamed clogged pores. I hear 10% glycolic acid toner or a AHA lotion is supposed to work well.. I'm thinking about seeing a dermatoligist soon just because NOTHING has ever helped me.
  7. Small flesh colored bumps with no head (white portion) or if they arn't black are clogged pores.... Most medicationd won't help as I have found.
  8. I steam my face to open the pores and gently squeeze clogged pores with my fingers wrapped in toiletpaper, guaze or cotton balls. Most facials do this but they use the fancy term "extraction" which is a fancy word for popping your pimples for you. Bascially you can do it at home 1. Boil a pot of water 2. Pour the water into a large bowl (salad or somthing of that nature) 3. Put your face over it and put a towel over your head to trap the steam I can't think of how this would help other then
  9. I've been using Helenes Mint Juelp Mask (green one) every day for the past few days... Also I've been opening up my pores with EXTREMLY hot water in a bowl and holding a towel over my head, then wrapping my fingertips in tissue paper and squeezing the areas with clogged pores, this seems to be working decently well because the pores are less raised.... Do I have to worry about scarring from this type of procedure? It seems to be working decently well and I'm getting TONS of a hard white substa
  10. I've tried salyic acid and BP it dosn't seem like the medication is penetrating the pores
  11. Is there any good method for removing clogged pores/blackheads? Most of my face (Except for my shaving area) is full of clogged pores. Mostly concentrated on my cheeks, temples and forehead. I noticed that most of my breakouts are becuase I squeeze the clogged pores and then the surrounding area the next day break outs probably from the oil on my fingers. Are there any good products or regemines to unclog my pores? Most things I have tried hasn't work and they seem to be VERY stubborn. Than
  12. Has anyone heard of demodexsolutions.com or anything like it? somone PM'd me this... just checking of the validity of this company.. seems a little far fetched.
  13. Hey I have the same as you pretty much... I don't know how to get rid of it.. but it seems like I have all these little bumps that are flesh colored with hard white stuff in them and blackheads too, my face looks alot more uneven and oily compared to yours though, and my skin is darker I've been asking people how to get rid of it but nobody really can help me.. I think its some sort of clogged pore deal where my skin can't exfoliate properly... I've been using Doves Daily Exfoliating Wash whi
  14. SA Dosn't give me bumps but it gave a poster above me bumps. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to smooth out my face or if my theory above is correct?
  15. about a week or so... I never really used them much, I used stridex pads etc when I was younger. I don't think its any type of scrub/cleanser/toner/cream thats giving me these because for a while I just washed my face twice a day with the Purpose bar and shaved with it and spot treated the cysts and the flesh colored bumps didn't go away. It seems to me that they are all clogged pores? I think I have a problem with my skin not exfoliating or somthing because I get blackheads on my back and nec
  16. I only clean my face twice a day usually, I try not to touch my face, but I'm in Arizona and I work outside sometimes which makes me sweat. I try to keep the oil off my face as much as I can with a tissue but is that enough? Any other suggestions?
  17. Yeah, but I don't shave my temples or forehead, and I 've had this before I even started shaving.
  18. I need help identifying what types of acne I have and how I can get rid of it. Right now my main problem is that my face is very uneven, its been like this since I was around 13 years old (I'm now 20). The flesh colored bumps when squeezed produce a hard white substance that seems like its been in there for a long time. Also adding to the unevenness is blackheads. The area that is the most uneven is my temple area Sometimes I will have bad breakouts of whiteheads (mostly along my jawline) wit
  19. because usually my days start at 645 with PT (Do not apply) then I have to shower at the gym on base quickly (im in the airforce) and I don't really have time to apply that kind of stuff to my face because from there its straight to work so the only other option is to only do the procedure at night. anyone know what these hard bumps are that don't form a head and just sit there? if I squeeze them hard yellow stuff comes out not squishy and they arn't blackheads (which i have too) but they
