I use salicylic acid to make the pimple turn into a whitehead. It looks bad, but I put concealer over it and it heals more quickly with a very faint mark. If I use BP, I'm guaranteed to get hyper-pigmentation. I guess the salicylic acid brings the bump to the front of the skin? idk it's different for everyone.
Would people be interested in an acne support Kik group? I could use a chat with people who relate to my problems. Or just a one on one would be great too! I'm really depressed... respond with your Kik username if you're interested!
