  1. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  2. I have not idea how I got this deep pitted pore. Can TCA help reduce this severity of this type of scar? It's very small but it's deep. Does anyone know a good practitioner in Northern NJ to help correct this? Thanks
  3. Okay so my acne like zits wise isn't a huge issue, pretty minor. But my black an white heads and my open pores are INSANE. On my nose, I have hundreds and hundreds of clogged pores (black heads) and if they're not clogged they are WIDE open. It looks absolutely disgusting. Beside my nose, under my eyes and beside my cheeks are hundreds of open pores as well. It's very disgusting as well. My forehead has tons of white heads and pores that are clogged but they don't look like black heads. Like
  4. Hey everybody, so Im 25 now and Ive really started noticing this last year that my nose pores seem to be getting bigger and bigger. Its getting pretty bad, Ive never seen anyone else that I can remember that has nose pores as big/deep as mine. I have been trying to keep them cleared out lately by purging them and using SA, but if anything this is just making them worse. I know there is nothing really I can do to shrink them, but does anyone have any advice on how to reduce the look of them, It s
  5. Hey guys, I'm 27 and my nightmare started almost two years ago, I was using AHA's and Retin-A in an attempt to lighten some sun damage on my face (which I still have) when I realized I was doing a great deal of damage to my face. My pores became huge and stretched out on my cheeks, some are as big or bigger than the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen and have an irregular shape like someone stretched them out. I have the dreaded orange peel texture and large dents of varying depths in my face an
  6. I have this dilated pore on my forehead that has some pigmentation around it that i really want to get rid of. I have been covering it for 2 yrs and want it removed. From my research the only way to go is a punch excision. Anyone had anything similar or have any treatment suggestions? Any recommendations for any Dr's in London that may be able to help? Hoping to get my blemish free skin back...
  7. Hi everyone, thank you now for taking a min to read my first posting on this site. Like everyone else here, I am an hardcore acne sufferer! I do everything that is recommended, eat clean, don't smoke, take acne meds, etc, etc. It has been a long and hard journey, I have done three rounds of Accutane ( can't do anymore due to liver damage) five rounds of Fraxal laser treatment to help reduce the scars and breakouts, mountains of topical creams and retanoids perscribed by doctors all with min
  8. Hi, Has anybody had any experience using concealapore? It's a product that's supposed to "fill in" really enlarged pores, more like a spot treatment than a full face solution. It's a clear substance for lighter skin tones, that reduces the appearance or depth of scarred pores. https://concealapore.com/ Anybody have thoughts on whether this works? I've read mixed reviews online. Thanks.
  9. Been a viewer of these forums for ages, mostly sucking in the info and rarely having time to put any out, but accidentally discovered something that it would be a shame to not share. Now, warning, I am a story-teller... So if you want to read about how and why Aloe works to remove oil clogs and blackheads from your pores, read the story. But if you simply want the step-by-step process, just skip to the bottom For years I have been one of those "jojoba oil, grapeseed oil" users, in attemp
  10. I've had acne for around 4 years. It's been gradually lessening this past year, but I have these really weird things on the nose-side part of my cheeks. Like, the vertical strips (but not skinny, medium thickness) of skin next to my nose. Maybe they're pores, but they're ridiculously huge and impossible to get rid of, at least with whatever I've tried: cleanser, moisturizer, epiduo, clindamycin is my regimen. http://imgur.com/a/RfATI These are it. How do I close them up? I heard S

  12. I'm looking for the treatment to shrink my large pores. Anyway, I have only "two choices" between ND:YAG laser and IPL because the clinic I trust has only these two. I have already known that ND:YAG is better than IPL because it is more efficient in producing Collagen which is a cause of large pores. However, my question is "Is ND:YAG really 'much' better than IPL in terms of shrinking large pores? " ** I've attached my photo again to hear your comments which treatment is proper to me.
  13. Just looking for some feedback/insight as I re evaulate my condition and understanding. I'm a 34 year old female. Type of acne: I very rarely ever get small (what I consider the poster type of acne--little red bumps with white tops). When I do, BP is very effective for me to clear them up. 99.9% of my problem is always more cystic in nature. Although they do not seem as deep/large as they used to they still originate as painful bumps under the skin which make a red spot that you can't do any
  14. Acne In-depth: How Dead Skin Cell Accumulation Can Lead to Acne

The corneocytes remain in the skin's pores for...

  16. I am thinking about getting a punch excision for a very large pore on the side of my face, under my eye and to the left of my nose. Would it be better NOT to get any microneedling done with a dermaroller before a punch excision was done as a means of keeping the raised walls around the large pore more precise as to give the plastic surgeon a better chance of a successful surgery? Or, would it not really matter?
  17. So I've been noticing my skin becoming filled with these noticeable holes; they are either enlarged pores or ice pick scars. Has anyone experienced similar conditions?
  18. I been having acne problems since the age 16?

  19. I'm interested in IPL; in terms of helping pores to look smaller, even though it is not eternal. My question is that Does it help to solve large pores? See my photo for your decision whether it is appropriate to my problem or not Thx
  20. Hello everyone! So about three weeks ago, I ran out of my supply of the Biore pore unclogging scrub and needed to purchase more. At the store I found the scrub but with a new design and the words "NEW LOOK" on the front. Thinking this is just a marketing strategy, I purchased it and have been using it since..... let me tell you when my face has made a turn for the worst.... its terrible! its almost becoming severe acne. After going to a dermatologist and turning down antibiotics, I decid

  23. Hey guys/girls I'm a total newbie! First off let me just say hello I'm a 24 year old male who had skin which I believe my derm referred to as 'sensitive to DHT' and I was described as having mild acne consisting of whiteheads/blackheads. I understand there are people in a lot worse circumstances then me and I do not want to sound like a fool worrying over 8+ scarred pores, however it is actually effecting my day to day life. So to begin! I presume these are scarred pores and not ice pick
  24. How Exfoliation Helps with Acne

    Exfoliation refers to the removal of dead skin cells. Exfoliation happens naturally when dead skin cells fall off to be replaced by new skin cells in a constant process of turnover. However, in acne-prone skin, this process does not function properly, and products that exfoliate the skin can help. Products that exfoliate the skin come in two types: Chemical exfoliants: These are acids that are applied topically to the skin. You can purchase over-the-counter products containing these...
