  1. I had one of those, horrible buggars. I put an ice cube on it, 3 or 4 times daily which helped alot to reduce the swelling. Then at night put a pimple patch on it. After 5 or 6 days it finally went down, but I actually still have the scar from it as this was a couple of months ago. Waiting for some sunshine to make the mark disappear.
  2. The great thing about washing with just water is that after several weeks you get a much better idea of your skin type. My large, inflamed, under the skin type of spots have completely disappeared since I started washing with just water. At about week 5 though I started getting several spots on my face at a time but they were just very small whiteheads that disappear very quickly. What I realised though that around the spots the skin was dry and flaky and that was actually my lightbul
  3. Do you see what I'm saying now? That stuff is destroying your skin. Go simple and natural matey, let your skin heal. You want better skin or not? I'm 34 now, had acne since 13 years old and only just got better this year. Iv tried everything from accutane, proactive, retinols ( good for healing acne Mark's but not curing acne ) , every face wash, moisteriser, serum etc under the sun. I have spent countless days researching acne, scars, cures, products, ingredients and finally ca
  4. Another article... https://www.google.com/amp/www.etherealauraspa.com/blog/proactiv%3fformat=amp
  5. A nice little article on pro active.. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6565461/amp/Proactiv-skin-care-brand-faced-controversy-ads-allergy-fears.html Interestingly named by the FDA in USA as one of the brands that can cause serious allergic reactions on some people, in fact nearly 50% of people report adverse effects in including skin burns. Ever considered you may be one of those people? Scars don't just appear unless your damaging your skin. Also did
  6. I live in uk also. War paint for men makeup is made in uk, it was on dragons den. How do you know your acne isn't under control already? You don't until you stop using products. Take my advice or leave it, up to you. Being from the uk did you know proactive have pulled out of the uk market and you will soon find it very difficult to get their products. Just a thought. If you want to heal some of those Marks on your face, I would suggest a strong retinol serum, though not ad
  7. Doubt its sun damage. Iv worked outdoors for 15 years, hardly ever wear suncream with minimal sun damage. The freckles are however hyperpigmentation caused by the sun. I still stand by my proactive comment. Its harsh stuff and made my skin look crap, exactly like you I had random scars appear on my face. Using nothing but water and your hands is the best thing for your skin. Its completely natural, non irritating and a perfectly good way of removing surface dirt and pollution. Honestly
  8. Stop using every cleanser, serum, moisteriser, spot treatment, basically everything. Wash face twice a day with warm (not hot) water and use your hands (clean) to wipe around your face whilst splashing water. Pat your face dry and leave. If applying make up then remove in the evening with a baby wipe then repeat water wash method. In 4 weeks little to no acne. You can thank me then
  9. I just re read your post again bud... Seriously you really need to stop what your doing. From the looks of it you wash your face a lot and use a lot of products which has just destroyed your natural skin barrier. The ravages you've put your skin through have messed with your mental health, disrupting your sleep patterns to an extent that you feel you need to get up at 330am to wash your face, even though you already washed it at 7.30pm. Seriously, how much dirt do you think your skin
  10. Hi. First things first matey, stop all that proactive rubbish, it's terrible for your skin. In fact dump all products now. Seriously. I did and my skin literally has never been better. Our bodies have evolved over thousands of years with nothing but dirt and good ol fashioned h2o touching our skin. Its only the last 50 years we have decided to use all these cleansers, moisturisers, lotions and potions and guess what, most people's skin is worse then it was before.
  11. Hi, I suggested this to you in your other post already, go to your doctor and ask for them to be cauterized. If they are unwilling then find a beauty salon that offers cauterization. If you want to try something at home then apple cider vinegar is the thing to try. You want to force them to a scab to allow the body to heal them. Use pure, unpasteurized, undiluted acv on small cotton balls and target each boil. Hold it on there with pressure for a few mins a time. Do these a few times a
  12. Even better is to use purified water or de ionized water then essentially re ionize it with a controlled amount of electrolytes ( sodium I.e salt potassium and magnesium). I wouldn't use tap water, especially hard water, then add salt to it. The mixture of both with all the different chemicals in, whilst having good results at first, will eventually dry out the skin causing new irritation and lead to inflamed breakouts. Adding some Epsom salts to normal bath water is fine though as ou
  13. Have any of you tried washing with nothing but electrolyte water? You or may not have heard but electrolytes are the big thing in skincare this year. My skin is looking pretty clear these days simply by washing my face with just tap water and my hands in the morning. Then at night the same routine but with electrolyte water. Easy to make, just buy a 5 litre bottle of distilled water, add some scoops of electrolyte powder, shake it up and pour a little in the sink to wash in. Elec
  14. Things to try.... 1. Take probiotics daily. 2. Take a high strength zinc tablet daily. 3. Don't masterbate, Ever. Keep those hormones in check. 4. Give up all soaps, moisturisers etc. Wash your face twice a day with water and your hands. Same as your body in the shower. 5. Take the water thing even further and wash once a day with normal tap water, then the second time using either carbonated water or distilled electrolyte water. ( electrolytes are the new big thing in c
