  1. To start off, I am going to try and start posting once a month at least, hopefully, more often than that. As for the update on my skin, it hasn't been the best few days. I think that is because I have run out of acidophilus that I pair with spiro, and my skin is not liking that. I forgot to call in the refill before the weekend. As a result of that, I have a few new spots on my cheek that are honestly really bothering me. I can't feel them, but my skin was looking good before this. It might also
  2. I went to a beauty salon today to get my whiteheads extracted. I know that with proper equipments, you can do it at home, but I was so worried that I'd make mistakes and make my face look even worse. The lady at the salon really hurt the hell out of me. She managed to get those white heads out of my skin, but afterwards my face is covered with red angry marks that sting like a mofo. She told me that I produce too much oil, and the way to deal with it is to keep it moisturized - like I don't alre
  3. Hey again everyone. I'm almost at day 16 now and I thought I'd check in. I don't feel as down in the dumps about the initial breakout anymore, since a ton of it has calmed down and cleared [touch wood...it gives me hope]. I have really crappy PIH marks from the cheek breakout and two small nodules remaining [one near the left corner of my mouth from the hormones, a super tiny one on left cheek that was a comedone but got inflamed ... thanks Spiro!] but it is what it is. They won't scar, and they
  4. Posted January 31, 2014 My name is Angel. I'm an addict. I'm addicted to skin picking. Or perhaps just addicted to picking out my imperfections and focusing on them with diamond-cuttin laser focus. Today I am starting "the regimen". Or should I say... tomorrow i am starting. I've already messed up today. I've only told a few people about my "dirty little secret".. and they all think I'm crazy. The problem is that I never let anyone see me without make up. I'm a young, fairly success
  5. Hello, I tried one pass at shaving against the grain, didn't do good. It left me with a really dark brown spot with red undertones. The darkness has faded a little but it is still very prevalent as you can see. Can someone help me figure out what this is and what I can do to heal it?
  6. Hellu ;P I have battled severe inflamed acne for about 10 years, loading up on Benzoyl Peroxide for half of my life. Now that I just finished the teen years, the infected pimples are less (not extinct, just less) and I am left with HUGE PORES, HYPERPIGMENTATION, and SKIN-COLOURED CLOGGED BUMPS. These seem to be the hardest to treat, but I will not give up! Goal: Clear Skin Time: 3 months Products: Purity cleanser from Philosophy (night + day) Help Me retinol treatment f
  7. I dont know if this is melasma, PIH, PIE, but this uneven skintone has remained for over 5 years. There are some indentations, so am wondering if the indentations are affecting the color?
  8. I have a variety of PIE and PIH scars that I got from skin picking. I picked at them over and over again so they're pretty red and brown. There's a few on my face and a few on my body. I've tried a lot of products that are recommended for these scars but nothing has really helped. I don't know what to do next. I'm thinking of dermarolling but I'm not sure. What should I do next? I can't afford laser treatments for multiple areas of my face and body as it'll cost too much. But, I'm considering it
  9. My skincare routine doesn't work as efficiently as it used to and now my dark spots won't go away. How can I get rid of them without lightening my face? I don't want to lighten my face because my face is already 100x lighter than my neck and I have even lighter patches on my cheeks which makes it even worse! I'm only 14 so I can't do anything dangerous like lasers and stuff.
  10. I have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and I don't know how I can make it go! I also have a lighter patch on my face and I don't want to get my whole face lightened because my face is already lighter than my neck and body! Help...
  11. Anyone who had hyperpigmentation from acne and got results by using some OTC or prescriptions or home remedies , Please share your stories !!!! These stories may help many here and can be encouraging at same time. Please also specify in how much time you got results and what regimen you followed. I myself have horrible brown spots on my face and get occassional pimples on face ( 2 to 3 in a week nearly). I think my acne are diet depedent. I also want help to get rid of these marks. Thanks in
  12. I've been desperate to get help on this forum for the past two months and no one has answered me. I have moderate-severe acne that I believe is hormonal but I honestly have no idea what is going on with my skin or my body, I am losing faith in all of these methods and attempts to figure my skin out and it is worsening my depression. I can't leave the house without makeup and am severely self conscious. My situation: I had been using tretinoin 0.025 and benzo-clin (some sort of benzoyl peroxi
  13. So im now 3 months on accutane no more active acne. But, i have my face full of PIH and scars. Some days i feel extremely sad about my appearance so i close my door and cry all the damn day in my room. Before acne my skin was beautiful and i never judged people with acne but now i feel like all the people judge me by my appearance. These give me seriously trust issues , in fact this year two girls wanted to be my girlfriend but i rejected both because im feeling so horrible. The things now
  14. My mother got mad at me because she claims that I am bleaching my skin and she is afraid that I am going to damage my skin. She got so mad that she told my Aunt and my Aunt had to talk to me about skin bleaching and she seemed very disappointed and I felt really embarrassed. I am 21 and I don't understand why she is doing this to me? I don't consider myself bleaching my skin but I want my skin to look less dull without foundation and I don't want any dark marks on my face. This is my skincare
  15. Hey guys, I've been trying to figure out for about a year now what is exactly wrong with my face. I have these red spots/scars all over my cheeks and I still have some actual active acne but I don't know whether these scars are fixable or not. They aren't deep scars, just surface. What are these and what can I use to help? I currently use nip and fab glycolic pads, scrub, and mask. Also African black soap and a salycyclic and glycolic toner.
  16. Hey guys. I wanted to show my PIE / PIH progress from a major breakout in April 2016 to this point. I've had acne since I was 11, so 19 years in total but I have had 2 rounds of accutane which gave me completely clear skin for 4 years the first time and 1.5 years the second time before relapse. I have some superficial scarring but mostly PIE and PIH that seems to last forever on my cheeks! I was was able to calm down my skin and clear most of the acne by late August 2016 (4-5 months of cysts,
  17. Hi everyone, I've had this red patch next to my nose for as long as I can remember. There is also a spot on my nose that isn't in the picture. I'm honestly not sure what it even is or how to treat it. I've tried derma rolling, aha/bha gel, and other minor solutions but nothing seems to be working :-/ maybe someone else on here is going through the same thing or already went through it and knows what to do. It'd be awesome if anyone can help me out! Thank you!
  18. hello, I have been battling trying to rid my cheek of these stubborn spots since a bad breakout back in November. although they have faded noticeably using just a saclictic acid scrub, I just started using a light glycolic acid mask some nights, as well as bentonite clay. They seem to be helping. However, I have a dermatologist appointment in 15 days and I am curious about bleaching methods. Does anyone here with fair caucasian but not porcelain-like skin have any experience with products like

    The accutane started to work by drying everything out. My lips, face, hands and joints were lacking moisture. I feel like the redness of the PIH has always been worse than the active acne was. My routine at this point was removing my makeup with olive oil, cleansing with Cetephil, moisturising with Aveeno's anti-redness cream, and either applying SPF 60 in the morning or a thin layer of Vaseline to keep moisture in.

    This is when I started my Accutane Journey. 40 mg. I also learned that my forehead acne was being caused by not properly rinsing the shampoo and conditioner off of my face. I started making sure washing my face was the last thing I did in the shower and everything along my hair line cleared up. This gave my some insight on the kind of acne I have. The acne I have on my cheeks and jawline has always been the most stubborn and its not caused by anything on the outside; it is all hormonal.

    I believe the regular use of SPF and BHA helped tremendously in terms of my PIH and redness. It did even help slow the breakouts but, they did still persist. At this point I switched to good old Cetephil that was so much better for my skin.
