  1. I've had these whiteheads (I think that's what they are) under my skin on my cheek for over a year now and I tried pushing them out long before but nothing came out. What are these and how do I get them out?? It's been irritating me now since it's been blemishing my face for so long. My mom suggested I get a needle and poke it out like that, but I don't think that's safe. It feels like a ball under my skin that like directly under my skin but covered up and moves it's my skin.
  2. Hey, new here. Begging for some help. Absolutely cannot take it anymore. I have been suffering from acne for years. All throughout high school and college. For years now i have tried everything possible to clear my acne, from going to a derm. And getting prescription to every over the counter product possible. I have had it. I cant look in the mirror without wanting to rip my face off. I have spent easily over $1000 on products/treatments and i am so depressed. I believe i have comdeonal acne be

    The problem

    I have had these annoying and stubborn skin coloured bumps which I recently found it was called closed comedones which have been on my face for 2 years and are extremely stubborn. It looks absolutely dreadful on me when I wear makeup such as foundation and it's mainly located on my cheeks. I've tried every single product from really high end to really cheap and have found that using homemade masks and treatments work the best
  4. So my dermatologist has had me on Epiduo Forte and Solodyn for 13 days now, and it's been working great for my acne (cystic and closed comedones). Backstory: my forehead had been the worst the areas since 6 months ago when this all started. So all the products/treatments I tried mainly concentrated there. I still put makeup on the lower half of the face, but never on the forehead. and when my skin started to get better, I wanted to give a bit of concealer or even foundati
  5. Alrighty, i'll get straight to the point. I have white closed comedones near my chin. I've had them since a LOONG time ago. Can't even remember when I got them. I am a teenage male if that makes any difference (doubt it lol). Luckily that's the only area I have/get this type of acne. So so my question, is how do you get rid of them? Is extraction by a dermatologist the only way? (I've heard some people say this so yeah...) Does exfoliating against these things really work? Thanks!

    Baking soda

    I have stopped trying to buy treatments from shops and dermatologists because I realised they are just not working for me and I don't want to spend a lot of money so I decided to make a baking soda mask using just baking soda and water. I rub the baking soda and water mixture on my face and leave for about 3-5 minutes and then wash off. I'm on day three of using this and I have to say my skin has cleared up extremely. I can't express how much this has worked for my skin and it's so cheap and
  7. 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
  8. Hey everyone, I just wanted to share how I got rid of my closed comedones. Skin type: Combination (oily/dry) Unfortunately, I cannot attribute this to one single thing so I'll just write everything I've done up here. 1. I cycled wheat out of my diet (I eat rice and rye bread now) 2. I used Epiduo Gel (adaplene 0.1% / benzoly peroxide 2.5%) ONCE. I never touched it again because it made my skin peel. After that, I started doing step 3. 3. Using non-comedogenic products: Moisturize

    Closed Comedones And Retnoid

    Hi Guys, so I've been reading tons of forums about retin a and how it works but I figured I would write my own post and see if anyone else has similar acne. So in middle school, I had closed comedones all over my face! It was seriously so gross and nothing worked. I never went to a dermatologist but I've tried a lot of over the counter like proactive and clean & clear, etc. Anyway, my face cleared as I got older. I seriously had great skin. I never wore makeup and I always got compliments on

    Stubborn Closed Comedones :(

    Hey you guys! I've uploaded some pictures of my really pesky closed comedones. I have had these for a few years now on my cheeks and just to the left and the right of my jaw. My forehead is clear of closed comedones and only gets a pimple every now and then. I also have closed comedones around my lips and nose. I have tried lots of topicals, gone to two different dermatologists, had face peels, and extractions. The only successful entries I've seen only has been people who had my type of a
  11. I have always had these tiny bumps on my face. They appear worse in natural and sunlight but in certain lightings my skin looks clear. I have done research and they look like closed comedones, or clogged pores. How Can I get rid of these? They used to be much much worse and with some things I have helped them not look so bad, they look way less bumpy than before but they never go away completely. My skin looks clear from a distance but up close you can see tiny bumps everywhere and they make th
  12. I've been fighting closed comedones on the lower half of my face for almost 10 years now. After going chemical free for a few years, I decided to try and wipe them out with Paula's Choice BHA liquid 2%. Lots of them became inflamed and turned into whiteheads. Most of the residing bumps were removed, but little by little new ones started cropping up again. These are mainly on my chin, next to my mouth, and in my mustache area with hairs growing out of them. I thought that by taking the plung
  13. Okay so this is probably going to be a some what long writing but I have so much I need to explain about my skin and questions that hopefully people can help me with So basically all my life (I'm 16 right now) I've had extremely clear skin with the occasional pimple, but I was always interested in beauty products so ever since I was at a young age, I would purchase all types of cleansers and moisturizers and masks that were formulated for acne prone skin (which I did not have) and other produc
  14. I have recently been drinking Dr Stuart's skin purify tea which is very cheap and can be bought from Holland and Barrett. I'm on day two and I think this is doing the trick from reaching deep inside the skin and purifying it, it's slowly turning all my closed comedones into red spots which means it's eventually going to go away And has cleared the root of the problem from under the skin. The baking soda was working however I realised that it wasn't fixing the root problem of the closed comedones
  15. Hello! So, I know the title of this blog post is Week 10, even though this is my first ever post about using adapalene and clindamycin, but I wanted to name Week 8 b/c it's the 8th week of me going through my treatment. I was just too lazy to start a blog back in week 1 haha Skin Type: Little oily, had mainly closed comedones, not many cysts, acne mainly on my cheeks, moderate acne Background Info: Up to the age of 16, my skin was clear and good. I would be able to eat junk
