    Peeling On My Face

    Hi everyone, For the past 3 years I've been struggling with acne. However, since last year, my skin improved a lot. I still have some zits specially on my chin (after I shave), on the top of my mouth (where the mustache grows) and on the lower sides of my nose. However, those are pretty tiny and I can barely notice them. However, I have a bigger problem. After I stopped making the daily care of my skin (in my cheeks and forehead) my acne improved but my skin stated to peel a lot. I thoug
  2. Hi , I was wondering when to use the regimen and if my daily schedule will affect it, when I wake up I get ready and go to the gym for 1-3 hours I'm not sure if I should apply the regimens before or after that, I also have academy soccer in the evening and I was wondering if I should apply the regimen right after academy (8:00) or at 10 just before I go to bed.
  3. Hey everyone. Just wanted to share my story and see if anyone could help me out. Im 17 and in high school. I got bad acne at a super young age and it only continued to get worse as a I got older. Eventually when i was able to go to a derm, I started on acanya then epiduo and now a retinol, while taking doxycycline. After years of these, the doxy stopped working and my cystic acne got so bad i wanted to try a new approach. I started working out ritualistically while eating better and also started
  4. I am 20 years old. I have never had a problem with my skin until about four months ago. I was on birth control since I was 16 and went off of it some time in late spring/early summer of 2014. While I was on the pill and up until about September of last year, my skin was very clear with an occasional blemish. Then my skin started getting really bad. I had an extremely stressful semester of college and maybe this had something to do with it, not sure if it's stress or hormones or a combination of
  5. i've had acne since i was 1.5yrs old..i've used everything i could think of..my parents pushed me to use accutane when i was in my mid 20's..it was hell. i was forced to endure 40mg of doses per day for 6 months then the family doctor pushed me up to 80mg for another year. i couldn't handle the side effects at a few points..my skin was on fire all the time. i had to put mothballs in my room just to get some sleep(it kinda numbed my skin from the smell), after a while my parents let me stop when

  8. Hello!!! I've decided to join this forum because I'm currently suffering from acne & I need to get rid of it My mom has told me that underneath I have VERY good skin but whenever she sees how bad it is, she's completely shocked! First off, I first started getting acne sometime in my teens(don't know the exact age) & at the time it was never really that bad... I was normally getting it on my forehead & under my eyes near my nose since the type of skin that I have is very OILY sk
  9. Ive suffered with acne for almost 10 years. When i suffered with the initial breakouts i didnt pay much attention, but over time i became really insecure because they wouldnt go away. Often times what happens to us is that we want the easiest way out, instead of the best way. We spend 100's of dollars on crap. We know its crap, yet we are eager to experiment on our beautiful faces. What we dont realize is that our body is a machine, and as a machine, our body takes TIME to process everythi
  10. Hey guys, Looking for any advice here. I have an appointment with my derm in 3 and a half weeks but am a bit wary on what to do in the meantime. I'm 25. Around the age of 21, I started experiencing horrible adult acne. Painful cystic acne all over my cheeks and chin-- sent me into a pretty bad depression because I was really confused. Had never had anything more than a single pimple, and in my final year of college, my skin was a wreck. It took about a year of regimens (all the topicals, di
  11. So about a year ago my skin broke out in these tiny little bumps. Didnt look like pimples but when squeezed hard I could get something to come out. Went to the Derm and she gave me Retinol and Solodyn. Used the retinol religously for months, nothing happened. The bumps stayed. Eventually the bumps on my cheeks went away, but concentrated on my forehead. I eventually started BC and my face cleared beautifully. Had absolutely nothing wrong with. No blackheads, ZILCH. Fast foreward to 2 weeks a
  12. I had acne when I was 16 and due to neglecting my skin and picking at the acne, I'm left with these red marks largely on my forehead and some on my face. I have an image below as I don't know how severe it is. I'm considering saving a lot of money for laser treatment on it, how many would I need looking at the marks and do I have some other options? Thanks

Ive been suffering from moderate acne from the age of 17 (lots of whiteheads, small red cysts that dont break surface etc) and I am now almost 21.

  16. Hello guys, so I've been in the regimen for about 6 days now, before that I had been on tazorac and aczone for about 8 months at the time I had mild acne and it took about 6 months to see results from the tazorac, the unfortunate part was it would not keep me entirely clear my acne would come in cycles I'd be completely clear for about a week and then I'd have a crazy break out 5 or so new pimples on my cheeks/chin and it would continue to breakout for about a week then I would be completely cle

    Red Painless Bumps

    So two weeks ago I got 2 painless red bumps on my cheeks. They do not hurt and they start off really red. They feel really hard to the touch. What could these be? The skin on top peels off every night but they aren't getting much smaller and appear to have no fluid in them. Should I get a cortisone shot? Help!!! Sick of seeing and feeling these ugly things!
  18. I'm a 20 year old guy who's been dealing with acne since 2015. I've tried a lot of treatments - bp, clindamycin, adapalene. Some of them workes for a while, but now my skin has been deteriorating. I was on doxycycline for 6 months which cleared me up, so the doc told me to stop, 4 months ago. Its been downhill ever since. Currently I'm using bp 5% every night. I don't know what to do. Honestly, acne is causing me major psychological stress. I've lost count of the number of times I look
  19. Hey guys I'm new. 28 year old male. I will start with my background then go to the question. When I was 16 I went on Accutane for severe acne, I completed the cycle and had beautiful skin. That is up until about 2 years ago when I started getting acne here and there around my lips and nose, like one or two at a time. Long story short I freaked and ordered proactive. Problem is every since I got on proactive my face has stayed SUPER oily (wasn't a problem before) even now that I'm on the acne.org

  21. I dont know what to do with these. How to treat. For reducing the growth of acne i'd taken isotretinoin for quite sometime and ve stopped consuming it now Also used benzoyl perpoxide gel along with cleansing and toning skin. For scars i've under gone microdermabrasion and salicylic acid peeling. Have seen some improvement but none got the flawless skin i've been dreaming. Pls look and tell me what are the solutions.
