  1. I did a blackhead extraction myself, which i know is fucking stupid and I hate myself for doing it, because now it looks like my skin is scarring. The areas where I was the most rough was on my forehead, nose and chin, and they are now a week later still really tight, and showing signs of scabbing. When I wrinkle my skin, the dead(?) scarred(?) skin looks weird. I've tried giving the areas lots of moisture, washing it less and with the outmost care, and nothing helps. The areas keep wrinkling we
  2. Okay so my friend at work gave me a tip saying i should let my face air dry for a better complexion and smaller pores she also said end showers cold and rinse face in cold water after cleansing but since i've been doing this my face has been covered with clogged pores and flaky skin so i'm like confused I don't think it's the cold water since i've been using it before she told me to air dry but what do you think is it better to pat dry or air dry? thanks for your comments
  3. i have been using bp for 10 days and i only have a full face of bp twice! Most of the time i focus on my acne. Now, my face is so dry it hurts and i can't apply any moisturizer because of the burning sensation! I dont know how to describe all the symtoms because english is not my first language, forgive me but right now i have the feeling that my face have become so dry, even though i have oily skin before using bp. This area is where i feel itching the most! You can see its a bit swollen as w
  4. Hi guys. I have recently purchased the acne.org cleanser and I have only used it on my face twice. Both times my skin felt very dry and taught afterwards. I used the right amount and followed the regimen instructions. I'm not on the whole regimen as I don't believe it to be necessary for me as I have been using BP/clindomycin for a year or so now with great success and had been getting along with my own regimen. However, I am still prone to breakouts but the biggest problem I have is clogged por
  5. Hi. I am on the last day of the second week since I started this regimen for the second time, and I have EXTREMELY dry flakey skin no matter how much moisturiser I apply. I don't know if it's because of the bp but after the moisturiser is all soaked into my skin, I still have some flakes on my chin area and my forhead. And today I applied the moisturiser and it burned like HELL. Also, for the last two weeks my skin has been very red. Is that normal? This is the second time I am trying this

  7. Hey guys, Decided to sign up since I feel like I'll get some help here. So today I decided to squeeze out the blackheads on my nose on Accutane, I used to squeeze them out before when they got too noticeable but on Accutane I saw something different. My nose got red and I felt like it was burning. I know my skin is more sensitive after Accutane, which should've made me stop right there but now I have neosporin on my nose for being stubborn. will the redness go away or have I just created scar
  8. the only reason i can think of, is because our skin needs our natural oils. i use tea tree soap from holland and barratts(uk) and people have said they found it to be over drying. why is that bad if you(i) will moisturise not long after washing ? thanks
