  1. I've about had it with my acne, i have moderate to severe acne. I get the whole galore, cysts, white heads, clogged pores the whole shebang. My problem is that i freak out and try all these products that aggravate my face even more and its a mess and i end up losing and my face being even worse than before. I feel ugly because my skin never wants to stay clear. I dont want to go on anymore prescriptions and use any drugstore products that just dry my skin out more. I have oily skin and its a lit
  2. I am finally clearing up with Minocycline 100mg prescription and benzoyl peroxide 5%. Been using it for a month both together and its starting to show. The problem is I have horrible red marks all over my face (not scars but reddish even blueish marks) and I know aloe vera really helps with this. My question is how should I implement it into my daily routine? In the morning i wash my face with a light cleanser then put on benzoyl peroxide and leave it for 10 minutes, after that I wash it off and
  3. HI I am a 15 year old male and I have had acne for a while since 13. gradually it has gotten worse and i have used many products. I first started using Differen, then tea tree oil, tooth paste, proactiv, and other acne cleansers and toners and now im using Accutane and im on my 10th week. my Derm told me to only have 2 a week so thats what im doing. I will see him again on Friday and will ask to go to 1 a day as i am yet to see much improvemt. However thats not where my question is Since i
  4. Can i use a 10% benzoyl peroxide treatment and a 2% salicylic acid treatment during the night while using a Chamomile & Aloe Vera Cleansing bar (soap) and a 10% sulfur ointment during the morning? 10% benzoyl peroxide treatment & the 2% salicylic acid treatment are both equate beauty products. Chamomile & Aloe Vera Cleansing bar is a La Bella product. 10% sulfur ointment is a De La Cruz product.
  5. Hi All, Can anyone recommend a very pure aloe vera gel that I can use for a moisturizer? I have literally tried EVERY moisturizer possible and I get clogged pores from everything. Even if the moisturizer has all ingredients with a 0 comedogenic rating I break out. I even just tried the Simple Gel Moisturizer and it clogged my pores. I've been using BP every day and it's been helping my acne tremendously, but the flaking skin looks awful. Please help!
  6. Hi everyone. I'm jena, 21 years old and i have light acne. I'm using tea tree oil every night for my acne for like 3 weeks now and so far it's working. It dries up my pimples. But i was wondering 'cause I'm not using any moisturizer, is it okay if I use 100% Aloe Vera as moisturizer for my face (night and day routine) while i use tea tree oil on my acne spots? Is it safe? Thank you so much!
  7. Aloe vera is definitely a helpful plant. It is widely known for relaxing the skin area as well as being the basic formula in many skin treatment products. However, to try it at home fresh Aloe vera ointment is advised. To start, cleanse your facial skin with clean water followed by apply the Aloe vera oinment to intended area. Wait for a few minutes and wash your face again with fresh water. Do this regularly and see the result. Good luck ^^!
  8. Has anybody tried the Roots aloe vera brand? Supposedly it is organic 100% aloe vera with no chemicals or additives. That explains why it needs to be refrigerated. I am thinking about getting this in the hope that it will help my acne. red marks, and inflamed skin. Opinions?

  9. Has anyone had any luck using gel from the Aloe Vera plant on your face, or wherever you have acne? I know it's good for burns, and have heard it helps heal open wounds (which is fairly obvious if it's good for burns), just last night I put a dab on a few scars I have - I didn't wanna put it all over in case I had a reaction or something. I plan on doing this every night, or try to. If anything I hope it helps me heal up faster.
  10. So I have spring break in TWO weeks, which is going to be great with the sun on my face and back. I need some vitamin D! I take vitamin D supplements every now and then, but i want the real stuff. Anyway, the reason I am back on here is to look at my progress that I made last year with my acne, and see if I can do anything about my current situation. Face: three large cysts on chin (always the trouble spot) and multiple, around 10, spots on the rest of my face. Localized mstly on the forehea

    Sweet Success

    Hello all! Well I am in a considerably more optimistic state of mind than I was in my last post, the crazy hormones of that time of the month have thankfully left me, my skin has calmed down a TON, and I'm delighted to share with you two new "treatments" which seem to be working quite smashingly--and they are as completely all natural, which is a huge bonus. I have maybe one or two active pimples right now, which is a huge improvement over two weeks ago, or even last week. I've been doing a cou
  12. Help!! My skin has erupted in loads of spots whiteheads and cysts as well as loads of little bumps with lots of redness. I used to have isolated chin acne (it was no where else) Even my cheeks were super clear- I feel like I’ve tried absolutely everything from natural remedies to creams and topical treatments right now I’m using the neutragena clearing face wash and the Liz Earle moisturiser and toner and I occasionally use the Barnier pure active face mask. I feel like I’m at the point where I’

  15. Hi everyone, I'm just new to this website although I often come here to read forums I thought I'd finally make an account for myself. My acne isn't very bad but I get really bad breakouts nearly all the time with the occasional week my skin is nearly spot free. My skin has recently started breaking out a lot on my right cheek, I never used to have this problem at all but until a couple of months ago I just get either a lot of tiny cluster pimples or the occasional big angry pimple with no h
  16. Hi! I've been on the acne.org regimen for almost 6 weeks now, and my skin is improving well. I have some active pimples, but not nearly as many as I used to! However, I have so many red marks on my cheeks that it looks like I am still severely broken out. I know I'm not, because they bumps are not raised and the skin in smooth. I've thought about Derma Rolling, and I've also considered pure Aloe Vera. If I use Aloe Vera, I thought about replacing the acne.org moisturizer with it each night, but
  17. Hi everyone, I used to visit this site all the time and am truly grateful for all the advice and tips I've discovered and tried over the years. I'd like to give back if I can, now that I'm free from the debilitating mental stresses of acne. Like most people, I've tried many, many, MANY different cures and again, like most, a lot of them were fairly pointless. So I'd like to share a few of the things that worked for me. First off, the thing I consider to be the most important aspect,

  20. back story on my skin: start of high school is when i was getting more pimples (started getting them at age 13-14 but they were small and only one would pop up at a time and they'd go away on its own). Throughout high school i would get pimples on my forehead that seemed to group together, though they weren't big cystic ones, they were still red and inflamed and making my life less enjoyable. At this time I got my first job and was finally able to afford those drugstore spot treatments. I star
  21. My skin this week has broken out severely, pretty much in the space of a few days my cheeks are covered in spots and my face is sore to touch. I have been using aloe vera to soothe the inflammations ect. And this seems to be working as I feel and see a difference in my skin compared to yesterday. I dont think retin a, among the several other products ive been piling on, is working for me. And I have seen some people say it takes a few months of bad skin hen clear skin will emerge but I
  22. So I figured I'd post something of my nightly routine, as I have exciting news due to my nightly routine coming soon! I've actually been pretty much dedicated to a simple nightly routine for 2 months now. I start off by using Dr Bronners Soap in Citrus, the liquid not bar, and clean off any and all makeup with that. I either do this in the shower, I take one every other day for a specific reason as I'll mention later, or at the sink on nights I don't shower. If I'm showering I use my Clarisonic
  23. hi! The aloe vera gel I use is 99% Jeju Aloe from The Face Shop. There are a bunch of ingredients on there that I have NO idea on what it is. Could someone help explain to me what the ingredients are and could they clog pores? Main Ingredients : Aloe barbadensis leaf extract (of course, lol) glycerin, alcohol denat... Other Ingredients (heheh, I copied and pasted): ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF EXTRACT•ALCOHOL DENAT•GLYCERIN•POLYSORBATE 20• CARBOMER•TRIETHANOLAMINE•BIS-PEG-18 METHYL ETHER DIME
  24. I had I guess you would call a sebaceous cyst on my forehead that formed almost a month ago. The bump itself has gone down, but there is a red mark there which I believe is just from the swelling. I don't know and can't tell if it is a scar or not so I have no idea what to use to make the redness fade away. I just started using Aloe Vera gel so I'm not sure if it is going to work. Any suggestions? Thanks.
