  1. 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

    Glycolic Acid Peel Help

    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.

  4. 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
  5. 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

    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.

    Hey I'm an 18 year old boy. Started my tretinoin 0.05% 2 months ago. I just wanted to make this blog for people on the medicine. To talk about their success, failures, problems socially, and other acne-related stuff. So far through 2 months I would say I have seen pretty decent improvement in my "post-acne" marks and some of the still remaining breakouts. The texture of my skin is definitely getting better as I have seen. I definitely want to see more improvement going forward. I've had acne sin
  9. 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
  10. 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

  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. The image shows my current left cheek. Now, I have these frustrating red marks that arent exactly pimples/not bumpy but are just sort of kind of there. Some of these are marks left by previous acne but most of them never really developed into a full sized pimple and just have been lurking there below the surface in all their annoying red faced glory. Note: they're a lot redder than by what you can tell in the picture and it really takes a toll on my confidence. So. Here's my questio
  17. Hi, Im new to the forum so I hope Im doing this right. Here's a little intro to my skin and regimen. Im a 24 year old female and for the last 3 years or so my acne and weight have been slowly increasing, I have been to the doctor and apparently there is no reason for it besides I must not be eating healthy and exercising enough (even though I do ) I have tried so many different things on my face and nothing works, everything from cheaper drug store things like clearisil to expensive products fr
  18. I had really bad acne and about 3 months ago my doctor prescribed me dianette contraceptive pill and zineryt topical treatment, now my acne has completely cleared up but my skin is still covered in red and brown acne marks where my spots were, it is not acne scarring where it is indented just marks where the spots once were, I went to my doctor and asked for Retin-a as I had heard it was good for acne scarring as it sped up cell renewal or something, the doctor said they did not have retin
  19. 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.

    Makeup Over Topicals?

    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

  23.
