  1. okay. so i wear makeup everyday everywhere. because i have TERRIBLE skin. i was born with salmon patches that never went away (pink birthmarks found on babies that are supposed to go away.) and.. i have some acne and post acne marks. i used to have the worst acne everrr. anyway. i'm sorry you guys have to see my face. but i'm going to show you a picture. uhm. i'm going swimming at my best friends birthday party and everyone is going to see my face and back and some people who will be there hat
  2. Hi everyone. I have posted a few times on here now, always on the "emotional and psychological effects of acne" page, because that's the most important one, I feel. I started having acne when I was 13 (I am 22 now) and have been self-conscious about my face ever since. When I read through peoples' posts, I can relate. I also NEVER go out without makeup, I overanalyze myself in the mirror on the daily, and I hate having my picture taken lest my latest zit shows up on camera. Side note: the state
  3. Hi all! Only on Day 2 of the acne.org regimen. I use makeup almost everyday. Before beginning the regimen, I would remove my makeup as soon as I got home. I figured the less time the makeup was on my face the better. However, now when I get home it is too soon for the 2nd washing of the day. Should I clean the makeup off my face even though it has been less than 12 hours since the morning wash? Or is it better the leave the makeup (and the medication underneath it) on until it is time for
  4. Hey everyone!!I've had moderate acne for the past 4 years and after endless medications and prescriptions I have built up the courage to go on Accutane! I've read so so many threads and logs and so many people have had great results! For the past 3 months this summer my acne took a turn for the worst after I got bronchitis and had to take a lot of medication (i thought antibiotics would help me??). Anyway, I've been even more depressed than usual and I barely leave the house so I don't pigment m
  5. Hello guys! So here's an idea. I think we should have a special topic dedicated to ways to cover up indented scars, either on a daily basis or for special occasions etc. I don't think this topic should be under Cosmetics & Grooming, because it easily gets lost there between all the topics related to acne only. I guess we all know that hiding acne and hiding scars are two different things and most people who suffer from scarring visit the Scar treatments subforum only. Also, covering up sca
  6. Yo guys! First of all, happy new year! I hope 2015 was great for you and I hope that this new year of 2016 will be even better! Anyways, I'll try to make this as short as possible. (SKIP TO THE 2ND PARAGRAPH TO GET TO THE POINT IF YOU'RE IN A HURRY! ) I'm a 17 year old male that has mild scarring at worse. I would say that 87% of people with acne scars have slightly worse or way worse scars than me and 13% people with acne scars have less noticeable scars than I do. So in other words,
  7. I started Accutane 11 days ago (finally) and I am still nervous as heck. The side effects scare me, but I'm hoping to results are worth it. I'm already going through dry eyes, dry lips, dry skin thats getting really irritated, and nose bleeds. I started a youtube channel (prettypotato) and Instagram account (prettypotato21) if you all are interested in checking it out. Anyways, I have some questions: 1. Here is what I am currently doing skin wise and was wondering if any of you use these pro
  8. I used to have acne problems when I was 13 until 15 years old. Right now, being 19, I rarely have acne but I do suffer from extremely oily face and NOTHING works!!! I wash my face twice (morning and night), I always remove my makeup and I exfoliate my skin three times per week and nothing. This is very frustrating because using makeup is the only thing that kind of controls my oiliness and I'd prefer not to use makeup at all Before applying makeup I use milk of magnesia and a primer and I use b
  9. So it's week 14 and I'm still not clear. On top of that, it only got worse. My skin improved the first month I used the regimen. I stopped having huge pimples. Around week 12, I started picking on my skin thinking that removing those dry flakes on top of the acne will help it clear soon. Well, it didn't help at all. I now have acne scabs and they are swollen right now. It's like there are bumps on my face and I hate it. What can I do to heal it faster? Should I still do the regimen then dab neos
  10. Just a collection of some of the best and worst products I've tried. I've had acne for about a year, it was the worst around December 2014 - February 2015. I now deal with scarring. So no matter the severity of your acne, I hope this post will guide you through which products to use and which ones to avoid. *These are just my opinions, these products will work differently depending on your skin type* Foundations: Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer Full coverage foundation, good
  11. Hi everyone! So, I have been on the regimen for a month and a half now. My ance is getting a little better. I am dealing with many cystic ance marks, which I had gotten from the regimen. I have this weird pattern going on that I have noticed though. At night when I wash my face, I wake up in the morning with clearer skin- no new pimples or inflamed acne. However, at the end of the day my face has about 3-7 new pimples maybe even more! I go light with my makeup, don't sweat all day, or touch my
  12. So if anyone takes the time to actually read this, I just want to say thanks, because I just need someone to listen and understand what the hell I'm going through. I figure here is the best place. I guess I'll start by explaining my "acne story." My skin was smooth and clear for most of middle school except for some forehead acne that began in 7th grade and didn't go away until sophomore year of high school simply because all that time it was being irritated my bangs. I also started using a
  13. Hi, so I was just curious as to how long you guys keep your makeup for before tossing it. I'm thinking products like foundation, BB cream, powder, powder blush, cream blush, pencil eyeliner, liquid eyeliner, concealer, eyeshadows and mascara. I don't have too large a makeup collection or anything but I'm still trying to declutter it a bit and even though I know things like foundation, BB cream, and mascara (mascara especially) should be replaced frequently I really have no clue what the shelf
  14. Hey, so I wasn't sure whether it would be better for me to post this under here or under the cosmetics section of this board but anyways, I was just wondering if any of you guys have successfully been able to put makeup over top of the AHA+ lotion from this website? I use it at night time mixed with moisturizer but I just had something funny happen where my boyfriend randomly asked me if I'd want to go out after I already got washed up for bed and everything aha and apparently I'm just really
  15. Has anyone tried orange corrector/concealer for hyperpigmentation and NOT dark circles? I'd like to know what your experience was, which ORANGE correctors you have tried..? I know it's common to use for dark circles, sun damage and to prevent brown skin tones from looking ashy when wearing foundation, concealer, powder & all these dark products have a very high pore clogging rate. Anyway lol, let me know what worked and didn't. Cheers!
  16. in my teens i had the most oily skin.. now that i transfered to a new location and aging i might add, after i bought my revlon colorstay for oily skin and applied it. i realized i think my skin is changing to dry or combination.. is that normal? plUs what the hell am i gonna do with my newly bought make up.
  17. Hey everyone, So I have mildly moderate acne and I started The Regimen about a month ago. It was going so well for the first couple of weeks, but I'm now starting to break out again. Is this to be expected? Also, my biggest problem with The Regimen is removing makeup. There is no way that my makeup will come off if I cleanse lightly for only 10 seconds, as suggested in the directions. Is it okay to apply more pressure and/or wash my face for a longer period of time? This is what I have been
  18. I started using the cleanser and the treatment, and it works well after a day it seems that my acne has reduced its size, I have a few breakouts maybe due to makeup or how I washes my face before. my question is I put a makeup on during the day and. I uses a sponge to blend in my foundation, i avoid using my hands and brushes so that it wont irritate my skin after ive watched a few youtube videos and the video of Dan, but how i do i was my face and remove my makeup without touching your face? I
  19. Hey! Wondering whats your favorite concealer, foundation, powder, etc. to use on SEVERE acne? I know it's not the best to use, but not all of us can go out in this world without a little bit of hiding our inflammation. I currently have the follow lineup - Almay liquid foundation for acne, Neutrogena powder foundation for acne and I also have Clinique's acne prone liquid foundation which I RARELY use. It does cover the best out of all other foundations but I've noticed it dries my skin ou
  20. Hello everyone. I'm in my mid 20's and have been suffering from Acne. No matter what I try I still have it. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't affecting my life drastically. I'm at the point where instead of trying to cure it I want to hide it. I've been using MURAD Acne Treatment Concealer Stick. Honestly, it's better than nothing but it's kind of powdery, seems to dry my skin, and it may be the wrong shade because I feel like it's a little too light and obvious. I've seen a few videos o
  21. Hi there everyone! I am new to posting but have been reading the forums on and off for about a year. I've had acne for years, I am 24 and it's increased exponentially for about the last 5 years. As a teenager I would have a pimple and it would be no big deal. Now I always have one or two or five. I had blackheads whiteheads and cystic pimples for about a year before I visited the derm. I told him I tried everything over the counter possible. Drugstore stuff. Expensive sephora and ulta stuf
  22. Ladies, I am having a dilemma that I'm sure has already been discussed on this platform, so forgive me. I am black with naturally dark lips that are considered normal/goes with my skin tone. I am on my second round of accutane. Last time, I did have a problem with pink lips..Not so much dry lips because I figured out how to keep them moisturized.. I really mean like pink lips that don't suite me. Sooo now I've just been bumped up to 60mg daily and this was the same dosage that triggered
  23. I have a question! I have been avoiding makeup pretty much entirely..and i'm not too worried about wearing makeup during the day because I know come evening/night time time I take it off and wash my face with a cleanser to take it all off for a fresh face for night time to let all the BP sink in. So what my question is, what do I do if I want to wear makeup at night time around the time I am going to be doing my night time regimen? I usually do my night time routine at 5-6pm and I'm freaking o
  24. i'm just tired for waiting on this one scab to fade i want to cover it up but being a guy i have no clue on what to look for i know nothing about makeup, i'm sure some of you guy's heard about the men pen i ordered it a while ago but the shade was too light i haven't purchased anymore from then since so im not sure if that brand works well or what...
  25. Skin LOL. It's living tissue which happens to be plastered over your muscle fibres & skeleton. What's more interesting is how we OBSESS over it. Throughout your entire lives, society has drilled into your minds either intentionally or subconsciously that bad skin = bad life. Spots = ugly. I just find it funny that if we lived in a world where everyone naturally had red marks on their face, and that was considered truly beautiful, then people would strive for it. Imagine a world where we
