  1. Hello everyone, I've had moderate acne since I was 12/13 (I believe my acne is mostly hormonal and make up related). I'm turning 27 this month, and my struggle has only worsened through adulthood (until recently). I'm sharing my regiment with the world with hope that it will help some of you. (Also note, I just purchased the basic kit through this site, and I will update once used for 30 days). *Failed attempts include: antibiotics, Spirolactone, topical Retinol, ProActive, endless over the co
  2. Hi all, Glossier has just launched in the UK and I've been taken in by the minimal packaging and website. As an acne sufferer, I usually stick to the same products and use the acne.org cleanser and treatment, but would love to know if the reviews (posted by users in the US) are true… I’m in need of a good moisturiser and all that stuff to stop your eyes and forehead looking old. (Yup, I’m an adult acne sufferer - the joys). I wouldn't usually try anything new but most Glossier products
  3. I just finished a course of accutane and my skin is looking loads better apart from scars. It's my absolute dream to one day feel comfortable going out without make up on and I'm wondering if there's any relationship between wearing foundation and scars fading? Obviously I know avoiding make up helps stop new spots too so I guess can't hurt, but I'm very scared at the prospect!
  4. From the album: The journey

    Two months into the regimen... with make up on.
  5. From the album: No More Skin Problems

    Almost 5 years after I've stopped taking diet pills and no more GERD, and now I can show my bare skin to the world
  6. So my acne is pretty bad and I simply cannot consider going lighter on the makeup per Dan's suggestion because sheer make up will not cover anything--- I used to use Paula's Choice clear system which includes a salicycid acid exfoliant that I applied with a cotton ball after washing my face with my hands and then using a clarisonic--- these steps were insuring that I removed all my makeup but they were not GENTLE so I know I need to stop them.... I just started the regimen and the gentle washi
  7. Hey what's up everyone. I'm 19 .Well I have moderate to mild acne, face, neck and back ,and its really noticeable have some scars as well and people stare. When I talk to people they can't go long with looking at just my eyes , I've been noticing that a lot of people touch their face when I talk to them , like no it's not contagious. But Ya I mean I avoid eye contact sometimes even ,,,like Ya I'm handsome but my acne just ... Makes it feel like I'm not , I go on about wearing a hood everywhere I
  8. Hey! I'm female, 28, uk. Month 1 - 30mg per day Month 2 - 50mg per day (I think) Month 3 - 50mg per day Month 4 - 50mg per day Month 5 - 60mg per day (stopped 1 week early) I took overall around 125mg per 53 kg body weight over 4 months and 3 weeks. I'm 5 foot 6. I missed a few pills during the entire course if I stayed away from home and forgot to pack them so my total takes that into account. I pretty much grew up using this site and I always intended I would update again when I wa
  9. Hi guys/girls I have moderate and sometimes worse when I break out. a lot of it is just the pigmentation I think. Anyways I wanna start wearing make up (im a guy) on a night out just to cover up those blemishes or active spots. I'm aware people are gonna be like what the hell? if your a guy, and some people might say don't because it makes it worse. Not hear for that, I'm hear for advice because I literally do not know the first thing about make up ha. I'm pale complexion. Any replies wo
  10. i have red spots and i want to conceal them but because of the peeling skin it is hard as it looks cakey and during mid day my skin just becomes flakey and i can't put make up on it again. Also how long does these red marks from acne take to fade? Im scared to use natural acidic products as my skin is still sensitive and my derm gave me products to use for my face (own company made, quite good) so should i buy my own products to help lighten my red marks? if so any recommendations?
  11. Why It's Important to Remove Makeup at the End of the Day

    Healthy skin is our first line of defense against many harmful substances that our bodies come in contact with, such as pollutants and bacteria. This is why the outer layer of our skin is known as the skin barrier. The skin barrier is like our outer "armor," protecting our bodies from physical damage, from chemicals in our environment, and from bacteria and viruses.1 According to an article published in 2016 in the journal Life Sciences, "[The]...
  12. Is Mineral Makeup Good for Acne?

    All makeup contains some minerals, which are necessary for makeup to have color. Pure mineral makeup is makeup that consists only of minerals. In other words, true mineral makeup does not contain any fragrances, water, oils, waxes, or preservatives. Just minerals.1,2 Since pure mineral makeup only contains dry solids, it usually comes in the form of loose or pressed powders.1,2 However, many manufacturers today use the term "mineral makeup" loosely to market a variety of products. For...
  13. Is Working out with Makeup on Bad for Acne?

    Many people today wear makeup while exercising. Maybe you head to the gym straight after work or school and don't have time to remove your makeup, or perhaps you simply feel more comfortable and confident with your makeup on. But could exercising with makeup on be causing breakouts or making your acne worse? No studies to date have looked at how wearing makeup during exercise might affect acne or skin health in general. However, we do...
  14. Can Makeup Brushes, Sponges, or Pads/Puffs Cause Acne?

    Brushes - Choosing & Using a Brush Sponges - Choosing & Using a Sponge Pads and Puffs - Choosing & Using a Pad or Puff Studies The Bottom Line It might seem to make common sense that reusing makeup tools that are not washed between uses would be bad for acne because of the residue left on the tool. However, any residue that might be left on makeup tools is unlikely to directly cause acne. Instead,...
  15. How Often Should an Acne-prone Person Wash Their Towel?

    A good rule of thumb is to wash your towel once a week in hot water. But don't stress about it too much. Used towels are unlikely to contribute to acne. Let's have a look at exactly why this is the case. Can Bacteria from Towels Make Acne Worse? Towels are often damp, and are stored in relatively warm bathroom environments, making for an ideal breeding ground for microbes, including bacteria. This causes some people to be...
  16. I just suddenly remembered that I have a wedding in Scotland mid October and I will need to find makeup that will work on my 'new' skin. Gulp. Although my skin doesn't look that dry anymore, any attempt to use makeup shows up any previously invisible flakes. None of my existing stuff is working so I went to a giant Boots store today to have a look. Nothing seemed the right colour and everything looked so cakey, I'm used to seeing my skin being more natural now! BTW, here's a tip for product shop
  17. Hi, i have a hard time finding a liquid foundation/concealer that is suitable for acne prone skin.

Right now, i havent seen any bad reviews on this product called: Lumene Double Stay Mineral Makeup normal and dry Anyone who are using it? or has used it? What do you guys use, and ow is it working for you? Do you find them breaking you out? Really appreciate some help and opinions
  18. Please, I want you to advice me about which make up to buy... Tomorrow I have a huge party and I don't have good make up at home. -Which foundation works well? My sking is pretty well, i mean I have a few pimples and scars, but when i put make up on they dissapear...

  19. hello everyone, i just though i should post an update to let you all know how my actuate treatment is going... So i have been on actuate for just over 3 months (14 weeks) now and i can finally say that i have had no new major breakouts on my face for a week (YAAAAAAY) !!! BUT... the top of my back is at its worst. i have so many spots on the top of my back, my shoulders and some at the top of my chest (just below my neck in-between my collar bones) which sucks because they are
  20. Hi Ladies -- What kind of Make Up are you all using? After spending a few weeks in Hawaii, I hardly wore any make up, and my skin cleared up (90%)... However, since being back home (in the cold), I wear make up every day to cover my hyper-pigmentation. I had been using a product line called Terra Firma Cosmetics (vegan & gluten free, bismuth free, and talc free) The first day I wore it again I broke out, the second day, I broke out even more, including a cystic pimple (which I had shot up wi
  21. I can't believe all the trouble and money my family and I have spent on acne products. One day at Wal-Mart I was looking for a new facial cleanser cause I had just ran out well I came across a travel size bottle of Cetaphil and decided for .97 what harm could it do trying and that's the thing there was no harm it cleared my face up the next day! It's so gentle I can use it 3 times a day because sometimes after work I feel like my face is so oily I like that I can use it unlimited times. Also an
  22. Hey guys so I need help about getting my oily skin fixed. The moisturizer and jojoba oil have been getting my skin a little darker than my normal skin (and I understand that, after 3 hours or so, it lightens.) and also they have been getting my skin so oily, I can figuratively fry an egg on my face! So I recently bought an anti shine powder. I wonder if it's okay to use it after I apply my moisturizer and jojoba oil? Will it affect the effectiveness of the products? Will it lessen the oily look
  23. How to Choose a Good Face Powder

    Face powder can come in a loose or pressed powder and can be either translucent or pigmented. Regardless of the exact type of powder, all powders all aim to: Set foundation (fixes the foundation in place) Absorb excess oil from the skin Give the skin a smooth and polished appearance Even out the skin tone, in the case of pigmented powder1 Since makeup can potentially contribute to acne,2 people with acne-prone skin need to be careful when selecting face powders...
  24. So my right check is begining to show the signs of emerging disaster.. But I'm so drained of think about my acne I almost don't even care. Almost. I'm going to try to stop picking at my skin. I don't think there's anything wrong with a little 'white head management' but I'v been really picking at like everything on my face. And it's really taking it's toll. So....I'm going to stop. Starting today. It's usually at night before my shower (or afterwards) that I pick. So I'm going to like write w
  25. So first thing I am male I heard there are Sunscreens with tan, so not regular white ones but bronze colour or something like that and that that could hide acne, is it true? If it is can anyone recommend some of those sunscreens ? Sry for bad English
