  1. Hello everyone So in the past few days,I've summed up the courage to change my skin routine a bit. Starting with Evening Primrose Oil. I heard its good for acne and for the skin so I said "WHY NOT?!". It was like $6 for a bottle of 75 soft gel capsules at Walmart and I'll be taking one a day with a meal. Hopefully I can get rid of Trinessa soon. Them side effects are the death of me. Secondly, I ordered 20% salicylic acid from amazon, also known as the chemical peel. I read all the
  2. From the album: My Skin

    I gave myself a chemical peel at home last night. Pretty good results so far! I'm just glad I didn't burn myself lol. My skin feels a lot smoother. I will be giving myself another peel in a few weeks, maybe less. I also used the Glycolic acid on my back & IT LOOKS GREAT. Even better results than my face had.
  3. This is my first peel... and as you will see I have some acne scars and patchy skin. I have been seeing a dermatologist for six months and using triluma cream. I intend to do a second peel in 6 to 8 weeks.

  5. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  6. Hi guys, I have quite bad acne scars, deep pitting on my cheeks and it's effecting my relationships and self esteem. I am looking at Pixel ErbiumYAG Laser treatment to try to improve the appearance but if I am going to get treatment I want the most effective treatment possible. Does anyone know if chemical peels would be more effective? Are there any other treatments that are very effective? Here is a photo of the scaring;
  7. Hi , Post inflammatory Hyperpigmentation I have messed myself really bad. Looking for some sympathy / re-assurance and solutions. How I did it : Earlier had little pigmentation near eyes / forehead. Was using Melacare Forte (Hydroquinone 4% + Tretinoin) in night and Kozimax (Kojic-5% plus VitC-10%) in day. This helped. To remove little pigmentation that was left and seeking overall improvement : 1. Applied "Nomelan Fenol" medium strength chemical peel. This is a combnation peel , me
  8. HELLO EVERYONE I need you help asap I am getting close to my 6th month using hydroquinone before I have to take a break for a few months I have SEVERE HYPERPIGMENTATION I MEAN SEVERE since I was about 8 I am now 20 and just now using hydroquinone I hear about people saying how it only take hydroquinone a month to heal or 6 months and hydro has definatly helped me I notice a difference but I DEFINATLY HAVE ALOT MORE HYPERPIGMENTATION to go I wanted to know is it normal for it to several years tre
  9. This is going to be a long post. A little background info, I have had acne since I was 10 years old, and I am turning 20 this year, finally with clear skin. I call the past 10 years the "decade of hell". I think we all encounter some kind of moment where we go, damn, I've had enough of this crap. And thus began my last ditch efforts to salvage my skin, which I am happy to say has finally become beautiful. Having lurked on this forum for years, I feel like its time for me to give bac
  10. Hi, So a few days ago I applied too much 5% Benzoyl Peroxide to my face, when i woke up i could see where i had applied it and there was a red/pink marks all over my forehead. They didn't itch at all and were not dry or irritable they were just there, I did try and moisturise but it didnt seem to make much difference, from close up its hardly noticeable but far away you can see the outline. Is this just a general reaction? or a burn? should I leave it, or treat? And also, I was going to do a
  11. I have beaten acne! I have no active pimples but need to remove the red marks, tretinoin is working too slow and I need them gone by school pictures, here's my progress from February when I started my regimen. What's the best treatment?! Laser ,chemical peels, I have no clue, please help!
  12. Firstly, hello everyone.. I'm new here (: I've had acne for at least 5 years now (I'm almost 16) mostly only having whiteheads and blackheads, with the occasional pimple. But I went through a stage where I was getting a few cystic pimples on my cheeks, and now they have gone but I'm left with red marks. My acne at the moment is mostly black/white heads.. But with the acne treatments my dermatologist has me on my skin is very weak. Meaning when I do succumb to my urges and pick at a little bl
  13. Just wanted to put this treatment regimen that I started on two weeks ago and is REALLY working. Let me give you some background first. I have never had rosacea or full-blown face acne but I have had times where one pimple goes away and another comes and no matter how clean my face is and careful I am... The acne persisted. Especially on my chin. I got a copper IUD in April and things have been steadily getting worse since then. More oil production and flare ups. I even did 6 series of isol
  14. It happens to the best of us, you try a new treatment and your skin just doesn't like it! I was at a follow up appointment at my dermatologists, and I asked if we could do a round of glycolic peels to to tone down hyperpigmentation from cystic acne. She thought it would be a great idea, yet didn't take into consideration that I have been using Epiduo (2.5% BP and .1% Adapalene) for the last month. Adapalene is a derivative of vitamin A, and is structurally similar to tretinoin, supposedly withou
  15. There are so many information on the internet for what works. The list include ACV, lemon juice, chemical peel, honey, aha and a whole bunch of stuff that you can buy to try it. However for most ppl it still doesn't work. So what does going to a dermatologist really do then? Unless they do a laser or chemical peel... isn't there really no point to go to one? I mean if they give you antibiotics can't you just buy it yourself? I mean we all know the methods there are to fading red mark
  16. Hey guys. In a few weeks I'm going to get my first chemical peel treatment to get rid of some brown mark scars and discoloration on my face (derm recommended it). Great right? Well the only problem is that he told me that I have to stop using my regimen for THREE days before the peel. Scary stuff. I have been using a benzoyl peroxide wash and cream regimen for about 6 months (prescribed by derm). Before it, my face wasn't terrible but I would have mild to moderate acne, consisting of at the
  17. Hi everyone. I am not new to the regimen. I've done it for two other long periods of time in my life. Both times, I tried to quit and ended up with severe acne again. This last time, I spent a year doing every all-natural and dietary intervention I possibly could and still sit here with painful, oozing, severe, red cystic acne all over my face. I can't take the pain any longer. It looks like I'm probably going to have to go back on the regimen again, as sick as it makes me. My skin just does
  18. I've been on Accutane for 4 months and I'm beginning to wonder if the persistent nosebleeds are worth it any more. I'm on 40 mg once a day and nothing. I've tried everything else, as I am 34 and have been dealing with acne since I was about 15. I went through some clear years, but they were very few and far between. I've tried every over the counter product, countless topical prescriptions, oral antibiotics, prednisone, vitamins, chemical peels, weird diets... and finally...in my 30s...I foun
  19. What works better for acne? What works better for red marks? I always felt that laser is a much more invasive procedure. However, i seen someone post that their skin got rid of red/brown marks due to doing ipl treatments.
  20. I don't use it on my entire face. I've had it for about a month now, (from MUAC), and the first 3 weeks I used it twice a week as recommended. The past few days though, I've been doing it daily. My skin never has a negative reaction to it...it hardly stings when I use it. I use it only on one spot, which is the huge embarassing scar right in the middle of my forehead. I desperately need to get rid of this scar within a month before I go on spring break (the first week of march). I have also
  21. I just wanted to share my latest scar treatment experience. I think I am finally satisfied with my skin, to the point of not thinking about or seeing my imperfections when I look in the mirror. I don't have that kind of obsessive, gnawing concern with how I look and how it is ruining my life. I have a better attention span, I am more hopeful, and just so much happier now that my skin is better. I feel so much healthier that I can see how ill I think my scars were making me. I truly hate acn
  22. Listen to my story please, I hope that by reading it posters will understand how seriously I stand behind what I say. About 7 years ago (when i was 13), I began to develop acne around my face. At the time I did not really care for my appearance so I did not take too much consideration of it, I would pop them or leave them alone. By the age of 14 I was entering High School and had become obsessed with dealing with my acne problems. I had tried makeup, which as a man I would get mocked for if I ev
  23. Hey everyone! I haven't posted on these boards much, but now that I've found something that controls my acne I wanted to share for others out there struggling with stubborn/long-term acne. I'm a 23 year old female. I have very sensitive oily/combination skin. I've had acne since I was 12 and I've tried a lot of different treatments through all the years including over the counter, prescription topical retinoids/benzol, birth control, anti-biotics and chemical peels. I've struggled with contro
  24. I'm 14 with kind of pale skin, but right now it it sunkissed color, anyways I have very mild acne and I only really get it on my chin. I have been using the Neutrogina grape fruit face wash and it works wonders for me, I barely ever brake out anymore. But before I started using it I would get pimples on my chin and once they healed they would leave these small brown spots that looked like birthmarks. I really want to get rid of them before Aug. 31 because that'smy first day of high school. My bu
  25. Okay so I had a terrible breakout December of this year, now lets say november it started. This was a horrid scene..the whole bottom of my face(jawline) looked like I had a pimple beard nothing was cute about that. This reaction was due to me stopping my birth control pills, how foolish of me back to the story it is now May 27, almost officially summer and im still dealing with this stubborn hyperpigmentation. Mind you my complexion is dark (idk what you would call my skin tone? ) These
