  1. Hi guys, So I have found out that if I eat all sorts of chocolade, I get acne on and around my nose, which is fine by me (I stop eating it) I also noticed whenever I drink milk, I get acne on my chin. When I eat a protein bar, I get acne above my lip. These are all avoidable for me and I can live with it. But the problem is that I get persistent acne on my cheeks only! I am allergic to house dust mite, so I change my pillow cases and bed cases regurarly. They are not cysts or pi
  2. Hey guys 21yrs old male I'm a vegan , no sweets , no dairy , full plant and low gi diet , i never experienced acne badly at all till February 2017 is when it started I was 20yrs led by that time and over the weeks and months went by I started to breakout on my forehead then down to my cheeks from their on I tried everythingfrom natural face cleanser/ exfoliates, to salycic acid and benzoyl peroxide, my diet is super clean I am taking enough vitamins and also to support immune system to heal
  3. So I stopped tri-sprinted (birth control pill) about a year ago and since then, my skin has been out of control. Based off what I’ve read, I’m pretty certain it’s hormonal. It was good for a couple months, and then had been progressively getting worse. It’s also unlike any acne I’ve ever had before. The texture is really gross looking, small bumps, lots of blackheads. I don’t know what to do. I’m awaiting an appointment with a dermatologist, and in the meantime I am using Beauty counter cleanser
  4. Hey does anyone know a slightly cheaper way to get rid of acne scarring? I used bha cause I had closed comedomes and my skin purged and got it all out onto my skin and it's almost cleared up except these little dots on my skin.. if anyone knows how to get rid of them please let me know.. that'd be amazing because they make me so insecure
  5. Hi guys, need your advice. I've suffering with cystic acne for around 3 years. Checked my hormones - everything is normal, slightly high FSH. Otherwise it's all fine. But I still breakout in the middle of my cycle on my cheeks like crazy. I have a huge red mark on my right cheek now and I simply want to cry. I have done everything: natural approach, tcm, diet. Name it. I can't find the cause. I am also very slim because of dieting. Red somewhere that not enough fat in a body can cause hormon

    From the album: My Acne Scar Healing Process

    This was about 2 and a half weeks ago, where I had acne and was on my GP prescription of Duac Gel and an antibiotic. It took very long to start to function and my acne and scarring was blue and purple. It's disgusting. I guess the medication they prescribe in the UK is very mild and hardly ever make a difference, as opposed to the Indian medication which works wonders, however - does dry the skin out. I can smell bleach (Domestos) when I am applying the face wash which makes me very scared
  7. As title says. Is this seborrhoea? Eczema? Fungal? I've gotting my (bad) acne under control with this routine: Evening: Splash face > Cleanser (Exposed Skin Care Cleanser on acne area, http://www.iherb.com/Acure-Organics-Sensitive-Facial-Cleanser-Fragrance-Free-4-fl-oz-118-ml/47616 on cheeks) > Pat lightly dry > BP on forehead and chin, NOT cheeks > Dry 20 min > Apply moisturizer (http://theacneproject.com/best-moisturizers-for-acne-prone-skin/) which is 50/50 Jojoba/Aloe ver
  8. So prom is this weekend and my face, that's been uncooperative for the past year and that I expect not to clear up any time soon, isn't even as flat as I would care for it to be before I apply any make-up on. A little skin history; I've been using the Exposed Acne Kit since January and thinking that it'd help my skin out, it actually made all of my pimples surface which they mentioned was normal but went on for too long for me to stick with it after 5 weeks when it said results would come by the
  9. My doctor put me on birth control (ortho-tricyclen) after my first period in middle school. Fast forward - clear skin for almost my entire life until I turn 19 and decide I don't need to be on synthetic hormones. Three months later, cystic acne all over my cheeks, jawline, and neck. Sound familiar? Straight away I go to the derm. Get put back on ortho-tri. I stayed on the ortho tri only to experience mediocre results, then moved onto yaz for three months which caused a literal facial explosion
  10. Hi. Well heres another acne story to add to the list. Being age 17 I suppose its to be expected, due to hormones and all, but my acne seems to have gotten out of control, especially in the forehead area, but now its appearing on the side of my face and cheeks, as the pictures show, along with the occasional bumps on my nose/chin (Yeah, I'm a mess). I've tried many products,primarily ones containing salyclic (?) acid and BP; I'm using one that is BP 10% now, been using it for roughly a month but
  11. If you've done some reading on the treatments available for scarring, you probably would have come across horror stories; especially from laser. After all, its just nature to overestimate the odds of dreadful but infrequent events. And I'm ultimately, not rewarded for not taking any action. Somewhere in April, I've tried out dermarolling; which I'd seen slow but substantial results from. Strengthened by newer advances in technology, I'm glad that I've finally took the first step to solve my prim
  12. I've never had visible acne on my cheeks, I haven't had any active pimples on there! My cheeks look like there is acne scarring and there is under the skin bumps but the surface feels smooth, it's also quite red in that area people always think I've got sunburn there. Any ideas?
  13. hello friends! today i woke up and suddenly i have these tiny lil' whiteheads(sharp looking) on my cheeks. am not sure how and why on earth i got then suddenly. i've been following the same routine i follow except for #2 days ago i had one indian sweet(which is like 2 bites of cake,really), #for about 4-5 days i've having yoghurt in fruit salad.(i had tested for yoghurt before.i had stopped having yoghurt for about a mnth and then had it twice a day for 2-3 days...no,i dint have zits th
  14. I used to always have very mild acne on my forehead, but I NEVER had problems with my cheeks. But since this year, I started getting crazy acne on my cheeks and I heard that acne on the cheeks is caused by hormones? Is that true? If so, why?
  15. I am 16 years old and i started my proactiv plus journey february 12, 2014. I thankfully never suffered through severe acne throughout my life. I usually got occasional pimples which started when i entered high school, which is normal for any teenage girl. Throughout my freshman and sophomore year in high school, my skin was normal, again had occasional pimples like any other teen, and it went away in a few days/weeks. (Also, i personally noticed i never had any breakouts or any acne during
  16. So I believe I have very sensitive skin. I had these tiny bumps on my forehead that I was given stievamycin and benzaclin gel for. I used these on my acne spots, however now my face is a terrible texture on my cheeks and forehead I used to have such smooth skin. I've been crying non stop I don't know what to do and don't know if it's permanent. Please help.. It's causing me a lot of distress bc I need to wear makeup but it only makes it looks worse. I can't stop crying because I don't know what
  17. Hey guys, I just joined this forum so firstly, hello! Up until a few months ago I've suffered with red raw acne on my cheeks and jawline. I'm no longer a teenager (by a long shot!) so did some research and yes, I'm pretty sure I was a sufferer of adult acne. Luckily I have a wonderful friend in the states who recommended Paula's Choice to me, as she's been using their products for a long while to treat blackheads and the occasional breakout. At first I was a bit cynical about it all
  18. Now, it is week 11 of my treatment (and technically week 7 of using adapalene and clindamycin). There hasn't been any major changes. The large pimples I mentioned last time have mostly gone down. There's only one large pimple now and my right cheek has become a bit smoother. Other than that, there's nothing interesting. Also, I forgot to mentioned in the last entry, but I am Asian with medium skin tone that can tan fairly easy. I don't each much junk food as I use to (a bag of chips every

  20. Hi there. I had acne for man years and still have On and Off. Since i started 4 years a go working in construction outside, my skin on face changed. I have used many different ance creams and peels. After all day working outside in cold weather and coming back home in warm room, my skin becomes very red and stays for long time. After many years hot summer and cold winter my skin changed especially pores. They are huge opened on my cheeks. What it is effective way to tighten pores?
  21. I don't know what else to blame this on except hormones to be honest.. its very depressing and I don't know what will even help anymore. Any advice would be appreciated. Makeup just makes them look worse... I always had very small clogged pores around my chin, which intensified when I went on Cerazette at age 17 (mini pill, cant have combined cos migraines) back in 2015. Went off it for about 5 months from August-January cos I was sick of the chin problems, but then they spread.......... went
  22. Okay so, I have been using the acne.org regimen since April. I think this year was by far the worst year for my face to break out.(2016 is terrible in general). When I used the product in April through July my face was cleared up. I had some blemishes, but were not too bad. By that time, I became a little careless, I still went with the regimen, but I would run out of some products and just wait till they came in the mail. I didn't use any backup products as I was too cocky that my skin didn't n
  23. I am 16 year old female, who recently started getting acne on her cheeks. Well not super recent.. It started about a year ago when I realized it was a constant thing. I break out ONLY on my cheeks, and just a few weeks ago I started getting tiny pimples on bottom corner of my lips. It has gotten a tiny bit better though, I used to get what started out as a hard bump that you can feel under the skin when you would press on it, but later on it would become into a very painful pimple on my cheeks.
