  1. I have very light skin, and whenever i get a pimple, whether i pop it or not, i ALWAYS get a red mark after. Red marks usually do not bother me, the thing is that they dont go away for months, and the end up accumulating. Since i hate wearing make up i decided to try everything I could find. For over a year nothng worked for me, but about a two weeks ago i decided to try lemon+concha de nacar ( a bleach cream they sell almost everywhere ) .... so i gave it a try. I put one on tope of the other, and I've got AMAZING RESULTS in only two weeks. (= It does not irritate or dry out my skin. They are both natural products. so yea, i just thought you guys should know (: :dance: TRY IT

    Doesn't Concha de Nacar already have lemon?

    Do you put it on every day?

    Right now i put the Concha de Nacar once a week...

  2. So i really don't know what type of acne i have... i get the usual white head here and there some big some small, but it's persistent at times.

    This week i got a breakout of about 10 new pimples :D some big and inflamed, others small.

    There was an inflamed one, kinda big, and when i popped it (i saw the head) a kinda big white, but hard pus (you know the white stuff that comes out)... yea it was kinda hard, and big it looked like a very little finger lol.

    So yea, i get those a lot and don't know what they are and if you guys get them as well.

    I don't get cysts or anything, just annoying normal pimples.

  3. You really have to test out your skin. What I mean by that is to go out one night and drink or smoke as much as you want. Check up on your face the next morning and see what your skin is like. If I had one beer while I was in the middle of the breakout, I would get three more pimples in the morning. When I am clear, I don't see any pimples form after a night of drinking.

    Yea, for me i don't think nothing happens. I did figure out how long it takes for me to get pimples when i eat bad food, which is a week or 6 and a half days. That's how i experimented with food.

    For partying, i get it confused with the food i eat so i don't really know if it causes me to break out. But for the past 2 weeks, i've eaten no fried foods, or anything. Partied thurs-sat and no acne!

    You would have to try this for yourself though. That works for me, not sure about everyone else.

  4. Isn't it annoying? You think "ahh, pimple is gone" then in a week you get another one in the same area...

    I have one scar that pimples go over it and over it every time. It won't heal lol

    All i do is put BP in it then it comes to a head after a while...

    I don't moisturize though... i have oily skin and putting it on will make me look reaaaaaaaaaaaally oily.. which i don't like... So i'd rather wait 20 mins for my face to shine again! Naturally... that is. :dance:

    Do you apply that medication all over your face or just your problem area?

  5. I don't know what kind of acne i have...

    I rarely get the painful under the skin cyst. Other times i get a not-so-painful "something" and it's small, and takes forever to get away even with BP on it... It seems BP makes even the small pimples worse because they leave a dark discoloration in my skin for longer than if i just left it alone... Which is what im doing now.. no BP for now.

    I wish i had a camera and could take pics.. i only have pics when i was clear...

  6. I feel you ;)

    I got the occasional pimples here and there randomly... i don't even know what causes them anymore so i just give up using products and stuff. I just use regular soap and water: Morning, Afternoon, and before bed.

    I am a fan of mirrors, and some mirrors make me look good and others are just horrible. I have plenty of marks (not scars) of previous acne that takes like a month or so to "blend" with the rest of my skin, and this is the most trouble i have. It's not the pimples. I can take one or two at a time, but combine those with the ugly red/black marks, and i just look like a disaster. I also get some red spots sorta like some minor burn marks (it looks like a pinkish patch). But what can i do... Sometimes i get so pissed of at what i see, that i get this very severe rage running through me wanting to break my head in the mirror.

    I don't know if people look at me, maybe they do and maybe they don't. But how can you know if you're not looking at them? If they're looking at you, then that means you're looking at them as well, else you wouldn't know if they were looking at you... get me? (I think i said it too confusing, lol). Besides, if you look at them, they'll also probably wonder why you're looking at them... lol

    I believe we all share the same angry feelings at why this happened to us, just as those with cancer, and HIV's, and other deadly diseases cry over it... Aren't you at least grateful you have something that'll eventually go away, unlike those diseases i mentioned? I am... and hope all of us are too.

    You are a beautiful girl (from what i can see :wub: ). Trust me, i thought my acne was bad, you think your acne is bad... but when you realize there's other people with worse acne than both of us combined... you'll know your acne isn't really that bad...

    We all wanna feel like normal again... This day, last year... my skin was as clear as the skin of those people you hate because they don't have acne... Sometimes i stop to wonder why this happened... what could've triggered my damn pimples to pop by the dozens (that was back then, now i get a few). Was it maybe the girl i was with? Maybe because i started college? Maybe because my sleep changed? I'd sure like to know. Wouldn't you?


  7. use the cleanser your doctor told you to use in the shower.. i wouldnt use a bar of soap or axe gel(irratation on skin)

    For me... it's longer than if i popped it, and if I DON'T pop it, it leaves a scar worse than if i did pop it... IDK i'm weird...

    As for your trouble zone... do you shave? How do you sleep? Face down, face to the side?

  8. Could this be the reason why my face goes red from time to time? It gets ugly red (spots, not constant redness) and then eventually turn into some bumps that i dont think are pimples.

    But either way... that's the only reason im thinking is causing my red spots.

    No they're not from past pimples (i made sure)...

    A lot of dirt flies around.. grass clippin, dirt, sand, etc etc..

    Any idea?

  9. So after i cleanse my face or after a shower, i notice my pores have white stuff coming out of it. I don't think they're pimples because they're not red or anything. It's easy to scratch off with your nail and it's on a couple of pores.

    So anyone know what it is?

  10. So for the past month or so i've been washing my face with a dove soap (the green tea one) and then applying Neutrogena On-The-Spot. I'm clear now (except the annoying marks).

    Will replacing the soap with dan's cleanser break me out? Will it dry me up?

    Thanks for the answers! :surprised:

  11. So i work at a golf course outside all day from 5-2PM. I do wear a hat, but still... i don't want my marks to get worse than what they already are.

    So i have oily skin. I use cleanser (will be using Dan's cleanser soon when it arrives), then put ACV on then use BP on the one or two pimples i have.

    After that, i put on a sunscreen which im not sure if i should be using or not...


    Here's what i use: Coppertone Sport Sunblock Lotion Spf 30.

    Active Ingredients: Homosalate, Octinoxate, Octisalate, Oxybenzone. Inactive Ingredients: Water, PEG-8, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Cetyl Phosphate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Propylene Glycol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Diazolidinyl Urea, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Fragrance.


    The only thing about this sunscreen is that since i have oily skin, this will make me even more oily (or higher shine). Will this always happen or is there a way to reduce it?

    TY! :surprised:

  12. I've had some of those.

    I used BP as intstructed by most members here (2.5% BP) and it eventually came to a head within a week. Then it was time to be popped, when it popped the white stuff wasn't liquid, it was HARD like a rock, but still white.

    Anyone know why that happens? Or if it's something else?

  13. So i was wondering if i had to wash my face before bed? Simple question really..

    Also, i think i read in a post here in acne.org about BP leaving certain facial redness from dry/old pimples?

    Is this true?

    Can someone tell me difference between SA and BP? I've used both i think, but not sure which is best for me.

    I have two huge volcanoes in my face right now and the only ones left, but the rest of my face is red (some from pimples, and other is just weird -- they're like smudges).


  14. What about other types of pimples? For example, sometimes i get these big swollen red ones (idk maybe like .5cm diameter or bigger), and i just put on-the-spot in it, and it eventually gets smaller, and is not red anymore. However it still is a small bump, but black in color (maybe because i work outdoors -- sun? I use SPF30 though).

    It also doesn't feel as if the pimple popped by itself. It often feels as if it is still there under the skin.

  15. I've had one or two of those as well..

    I don't know what type of acne i have. Mostly scars right now with 2 or 3 active ones.

    The bump was kinda big maybe size of ur thumb (a little smaller). And its color was blackish so it didn't blend with my skin.

    After about 2-4 weeks it's completely gone.
