  1. These are closed comedones, I have them too, I'm using azelaic acid now and it seems it doesn't do nothing, maybe some aha will get rid of them. Also I noticed that when I use sulfur soap they seems to be less red. I would use a glicolic acid moisturizer and see how it goes.
  2. Hi, I found a cleansing scrubbing gel that has bamboo powder for scrubbing, is it good to use it on sensitive skin? I read that is isn't as aggressive as other things like nut or apricot scrub
  3. Hi, I'm using a cleanser for sensitive skin, here are the ingredients Aqua, Glycerin, Saccharum officinarum extract, Disodium cocoyl glutamate, Caprylyl Capryl Glucoside, Lactic acid, Calendula officinalis flower extract, Chamomilla recutita flower extract, Hydrolyzed rice protein, Opuntia ficus-indica stem extract, PCA glyceryl oleate, Sodium cocoyl glutamate, Sodium benzoate, Potassium sorbate, Parfum So, as you can see, no suspiciuos ingredients, instead only gentle surfactants and
  4. So, I want to try some new moisturizer instead of the one I'm using now and I want to chose between those two, the first contains urea, a ceramide, hyaluronic acid, betaine, this is the ingredient list: water, octyldodecyl myristate, hydroxyethyl urea, diglycerin, glycerin, 1,5-pentanediol, triisostearin, glyceryl ethylhexanoate/stearate/adipate, betaine, nylon 6/12, PEG-32, caprylyl glycol, sodium hyaluronate, acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, xanthan gum, hydroxyethyl acrylate
  5. I read somewhere that even though Finacea has 15% Azelaic acid, it's more effective than Skinoren 20% because of its gel formulation so it's absorbed better.
  6. Anyway, how do you think I should do my routine? I usually at night wash my face, then apply my azelaic acid gel then moisturize. But I was thinking, since the gel also contains AHA, it has a low PH for them to work, so maybe the moisturizer can make them less effective? Maybe I should moisturize first then apply the gel?
  7. I don't want to buy too many products, also I noticed that whatever thing I use, even if it should decrease oil production, just doesn't work, I think I just have hyperactive glands I tried azelaic acid, salicilic acid and they did nothing). Do you think thay cerave moiusturizer can help? It has niacinamide in it. Anyway, now I'll see how the regimen I'm following now will clear my skin, that I will think about oily skin. I found an eucerin aha/bha cream with licochalcone a, similar to the acne
  8. I have those too due to having quite an oily skin, I hope they would go away although they seem quite stubborn.
  9. I think it could be caused by shaving, I still unfortunately shave with supermarket shaving gel/cream and multiblade razor, althought I try not to irritate my skin I always get some irritation and cuts, especially when shaving against the grain around my mouth, chin and jaw.
  10. I found that the thing causing skin irritation was too hot water (although it wasn't very hot, but I noticed that using water which is a bit fresh is better).
  11. I had something like that a few times and it usually cleared up itself in a few days, but yes it's annoying on your lips especially because you can't apply anything there
  12. Hi, I'm 23 and I have a light case of acne, with some white heads and red spots, especially on my chin and around the mouth, some hyperpigmentation and enlaged pores on my nose and around it, under the eyes, combination skin with the typical t zone. I have quite a sensitive skin that is easily irritated. I am now using a gel containing a combination of azelaic acid, glicolic acid and a retinoid (hydroxipinacolon retinoate) and a moisturizer which is specifically designed for "oily, combination,
