  1. So I have been using the regimen for around 1 1/2 months. I have had success but I still have some clogged pores and maybe one or two small pimples. Unfortunately, every time one pimple goes away it seems that another one sprouts up in a different place, so I decided to start using AHA. First, I am just wondering it is OK to put AHA on even if I still have a few pimples. Just to let you all know, I have only been doing half AHA and half moisturizer cause I dont want to breakout. Second, when I u
  2. heres a pic from earlier today, all the marks on my cheek are scars my chin has one large active cyst and the rest there is mostly scarring i have mixed up my past regimens and i dont know where to start
  3. Hi y'all, I (girl, aged 18) have been suffering from acne for a long period: acne slowly started to run when I was 11, and from the age of 13 my face (and back) were even excessively covered with spots. Sadly, I have to deal with a genetic form of acne. I got the gene from my dad, whose active acne calmed when he was in his early 20s. His acne was very extreme. I tried a lot of creams and oils, really numerous options (too many to mention them all), also benzyl peroxide, I went to a skin
  4. I'm not even quite sure what "type" of scarring i have, and yes i still have some active acne here and there. but what would you suggest i do to get rid of the scarring? there are just so many choices and i'm not sure what would be best for me, and the kinda scarring i have. dermarolling? subcision? lasers? or chemical pill? please comment/ help xx
  5. I haven't typed in my blog in a while and felt it deserved a wee update. I have stopped using Azelaic acid, I stopped it about a month ago now actually, to be totally honest Im not really sure what it did for me. It did decrease the redness of my acne a little bit and made some of my spots smaller. Now looking back on it though and looking at some pictures of my skin, I notice that the Azelaic Acid actually made me purge. It purged my skin out a hell of alot actually. Weirdly enough it doesn'
  6. After several years of using over-the-counter products, prescription creams and topical antibiotics without lasting success, I have decided to abandon this approach. I looked closer at my acne, and suspected it was hormonal. After a visit to the endocrinologist, it was deduced that my acne is a potential symptom of PCOS. I am now taking the anti-androgen blocker 'cyproterone acetate' to combat high levels of testosterone and hopefully reduced my (daily) break outs. I am also taking zinc and om
  7. Should I use AHA with moisturizer everyday? I still have some active acne but I'm still doing the regimen. By active acne I mean I get a couple pimples every week but they come as they go away. Anyways, should I use AHA and will it help me get rid of any existing active acne? Thanks
  8. Hi there I have recently just started using a new face mask recipe and have been seeing results, so I thought I would share! It's super hydrating, I have combination skin and it has not made my skin greasy in the slightest. My skin has been really dehydrated, this has really helped moisturize the deeper layers of my skin, it's made a huge difference for me. It is also FULL of vitamins! There is: Vitamin E, which boosts collagen production, full of antioxidants and aids skin in healing quickly.
  9. To start things out let me give you all some background information! I'm seventeen years old and currently a senior in high school. I've suffered from cystic acne for over five years now. A lot of it is hereditary because my dad suffered from severe acne when he was growing up as well. I have had a serious problem with picking, mainly because when I first got acne, I was not well informed about treatments and things not to do so I always picked my acne, and it has turned into a really bad ha
  10. To retinol or not to retinol, that is the question. So, I am thinking about starting a new regimen for some skincare concerns I have (mainly hyperpigmentation and scarring but also anti-aging related issues too) and I want to try using Retinol, but I need some advice. I have ethnic, oily, acne prone, sensitive skin and my current skincare routine consists of a cleanser, a moisturiser and a sunscreen (I use Cetaphil for everything), also I exfoliate gently with a hand towel every now and then
  11. Please help me find some relief! I have NEVER had acne like this even though I've been struggling with adult acne for about 3 years. Usually I only get hormonal cystic acne on my chin and a couple spots on my forehead (I also have Rosacea but don't think this acne is related to that). But about a month a half a half ago I started getting huge breakouts on both cheeks (see photos). They are now so near the surface under thin scabs, with blood and pus, which means i can't wash my face without the
