  1. I've been battling acne scars for quite some time now. I never use to have this problem, or with acne in general. My face did break out as I got in the teen ages(end of elementary going into middle school), but it did clear up. Now I'm stuck with whatever is on my cheeks, and also been breaking out a lot. I noticed just the slightest acne marks a long time back but it wasn't something I was worried about. I used so many acne products, and face washes and nothing seems to help. I also used
  2. hello, I have been battling trying to rid my cheek of these stubborn spots since a bad breakout back in November. although they have faded noticeably using just a saclictic acid scrub, I just started using a light glycolic acid mask some nights, as well as bentonite clay. They seem to be helping. However, I have a dermatologist appointment in 15 days and I am curious about bleaching methods. Does anyone here with fair caucasian but not porcelain-like skin have any experience with products like
  3. From the album: My Skin

    Hey... My skin is looking pretty frickin' good lol. I've been sleeping more these last few days (even going as far as to take naps during the day) & drinking more water. I stopped taking evening primrose oil; it didn't seem to agree with my skin as far as I could tell, but it could've been something else. Right now I'm sticking to Beta Carotene, & added a collagen pill last night. I'm also washing off my makeup again before bed. Good results compared to my last pic. I'm happy.
  4. From the album: Acne Marks

    I use a homemade lotion: 50 green tea + 25% lemon juice + 25% Apple Cider Vinegar Do you see the difference? I think it's less red Do you know something helpful for red marks?
  5. From the album: Acne.org regimen made skin worse

    the largest picture is me before the regimen and the rest are me 3 months after.
  6. Hello, I'm looking for a glycolic acid peel to treat my acne marks. Almost all my acne is gone, I only have really deep and big acne marks and I want to give the glycolic acid peel a try. I would like to buy one online. Can anyone recommend me one for a first time user and whcih % should I used?. And if I can buy them via ebay, that could be better.
  7. Hi, I'm new here & I just wanted some help with my acne situation. I am a 16 year-old boy, I get pimples quite frequently, 2 to 3 pimples are always on my face. There's never a day where I have no pimples. But that's not the worst part. Everytime the pimples heal there's a red mark left behind. I don't even pop them so I don't understand why I get these marks. And this occurs only on my cheeks. I've recently been prescribed tretinoin by my dermatologist for the marks, and benzaclin for activ
  8. The only place I would dare upload something like this! Questions as to how I cleared that mess up are welcome!
  9. Hey guys, I have some questions ! *I'm on a low dose (20-40 mg) and I have been on accutane for about 4-5 months. Didn't have cystic acne but a lot of pimples that left acne marks on my face and back, and they wouldn't go away with any other treatment.. 1: Have any of you tried anything that could remove or just reduce red marks/hyperpigmentation while ON accutane? 2: my skin tend to blush up and get red, especially my nose and cheeks which make my acne marks look worse, I have started using
  10. Hi guys! I'm new to posting, but I've read the forum before. I just want to make it clear before I start that I am in no way affiliated with a brand - I'm literally an 18 year old kid who's struggled with acne for years and I finally found a product that works for me - and it's not even made for acne! So I've had acne for years, and I'm definitely a picker (it's always been a large problem of mine). This led to some acne marks on my cheeks, which I thought would fade in a few months, but actuall
  11. Recently, a family member bought me Clean and Clear Advantage Oil Absorbing Cream Cleanser and Clean and Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Reviving Cleanser as a gift. I had a bad experience in the past with Clean and Clear, because I used it about a year ago, my skin always burned and I had marks/rashes on parts of my face. I imagine that it was an allergic reaction. So I was a bit apprehensive when my family member bought this for me. But I didn't want to be rude and not use it. I used it, a
  12. Hey guys, I have been on Epiduo (adapalene 0.1% and BP 2.5%) for 5 months. I see so much improvement after my 3rd month, my face was almost clear with no new active acne during the whole month of April 2020. However, starting in May 2020 until now (June 3, 2020), my skin is getting worse. I still use Epiduo every night just a pea size around the area where i usually get pimples. But now almost every day I will get new red bumps and eventually become pustules. The formation of pustule takes 2-3 d
  13. Okay so first, my questions: Does anyone have any advice for applying makeup when using topicals? What kind of moisturizer works the best for keeping skin hydrated and wearing underneath makeup? Here's a little background if you're interested: I've been using Duac and Retin-A as a regimen for the past few weeks (I was initially on Differin and then switched to Retin-A, but I've been using Topicals since April) and while my acne is subsiding, I do have a lot of pigmentation and unevenes
  14. My skin has never been this bad before and my skin care routine hasn't changed at all!! I don't know what to do I'm so insecure to look at my face does my one know ways to get rid of these marks? I also have these tiny bumps all over my face and it ales my face look even worse my other cheek is perfectly clear but my right side is terriable as you see, his might not be bad to some people but I've always had clear skin and me breaking out like this is a complete shock someone please help me i don
  15. I have hyperpigmentation from past acne on my cheeks that has been there for a few years now. My acne is not nearly as bad as it used to be, so my dermatologist suggested I get a laser treatment to get rid of the scars. I was told the V beam would work best for me. I have read other reviews about the treatment on here, but I wanted to know, for those of you have had it done, what was the pain like if you had to rate it on a scale form 0-10, 0 being you did not feel anything, and 10 being extreme
  16. Hi does anyone have any advice on how to clear this up? I don't know if it's an acne mark or acne scar? I started getting cheek acne last January after going off tretinoin cream. I have been back on it for almost a year now but after getting cyst acne I am left with these. I don't know what else to do to clear it up.
  17. HELP! I have these acne red marks that won't go away! I can't stand being with them. I've tried benzoyl poroxide and it only irritates my face more! If any one knows of another cream or anything to get rid of these marks please
  18. I’ve had little to no progress in this department for over a year. I still have areas of redness and spots here and there linger around even after a year of their formation, and the pimples that produced them weren’t even bad ones, most were mild and a few were perhaps moderate. I’ve tried the retinol cream (by Ann Webb) and an AHA product (by Earth Science) with no discernible improvement. I’ve been using a retinoid (adapalene 0.1%) for a little over 2 months and progress is barely noticeable,
  19. I have had acne since freshmen year of high school and not just acne BAD cystic acne. Freshmen year of college I used benzaolyl peroxide with a moisturizer and tanned a few times at my local tanning salon and ALL of my acne was gone. I was acne free for aboout 9 months until the summer when it slowly came back when I tried a new regime. I quickly tried to go back to just using the benazoly and it did not work and my acne came back more and more until around decemeber 2013 when I started using a
  20. From May 2009 to fall 2012, I was on spiro, between 50 mg to 100, on and off. All in all, it was a horrible experience. For the first year, I know I was hyperkalemic, it made my hair limp, gross, thinned and greasy, caused serious joint pain and fatigue, and did zero to help with recurrent pattern cystic acne during my period on my cheeks/jaw. It also made my skin grey and saggy, frankly--caused bloat and water retention all over and made me sweaty and tired. (For reference, I took each dos
  21. Hello to you I been breaking out this summer but not to bad, i got pimples on my chin and at my upper lip, so i told my mom to take me to walgreens so i can get some benzoyl peroxide. i got this package that had its own regimen with a toner for ph balance & Benzoyl 2.5 % cream & cleanser ^.^ , but after a 2 weeks of using i broke out more that i all ready.So i stop using everything and left my face alone for 3 day not washing or touching it and some pimples went away, redness and oil
