  2. Last month, as of August 13th, I posted a topic about my horrible breakout I had from using bad acne products. On that day I immediately stopped taking the acne medications (Sulfamethoxazole/Tmp DS Tablet 2 times daily). And stopped cleaning my face with Tea Tree Facial Wash. I started, on August 19th, use CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser along with Thayer's Cucumber witch hazel & CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. I still use my Clarisonic daily at nightime. I bumped up on Spring Valley's Hair, Skin

    Weird bumps on face

    Hello everyone. So, I have a problem with my skin and it's that I have these little colourless bumps on my face. At first it was only on my forehead, but now it's also on my cheeks and on my chin. It looks really bad in certain light, especially in bathroom light and in the sun and also in pictures, which makes me really self conscious (I have linked a picture). I really hope some of you can help me with what it is and how I can get rid rid of it!

    Large pores...

    I've been on isotrex (isotretinoin gel) for about 2 months now, and my skin is looking much better. But I have huge pores on the side of my nose and they look huge and I want to minimise them. Can anyone help me with this?
  5. So I just used an exofoliating polish on the skin around my t-zone, where I have a lot of blackheads. It didn't happen to all of them, but some of them turned really dark. What sorcery is this?

  7. Hey everyone! It's been about 3 years since my last post and I must say my face is looking way better! I get small breakouts here and there but I haven't had any full blown painful as hell clusters in ages! I mostly owe that too being very strict with my face cleaning habits and the products I use. Sadly I still haven't found the perfect face wash, toner and moisturizer system but I make do with the random ones I purchase. I use the Mia 2 now and it really helps get every bit of makeup off my
  8. So I'm here finally posting to this site. I've spent so much time searching online for treatments and solutions. I will try to keep this short. I have lots of clogged pores that turn some turn into pimples. They are puss filled nasty pimples. I also get one or two cysts. I tried so many natural things. I went vegan for two months and my acne got worse. Recently i went to the a derm and he gave me benzamycin. I started using it on my face at night only and wash in the morning. I'd say i have very

    Spectra Peel

    Has anyone tried the carbon spectra peel?
  11. Okay, so two nights ago, I decided to try to pop out some of the dirt from my pores on my nose. It worked, but my finger/nail pinching left red bruises immediately after. I left the bruises and went to sleep, expecting them to fade away over night. However, they were still there when I woke up. I then looked up home remedies for healing bruises quickly. I tried lemon juice, which just made my face sting, and vinegar, which made some skin peel, worsening the problem. I then put an ice cub in a ra
  12. Hello guys I need advice. I've struggled with acne a couple of years now and it does seem to get worse. My genetics have apparently blessed me with large pores and bad skin in general (see attachments). I've tried the regimen but it didn't help. It made my skin more oily and the pores more visible. Pore strips have a rather negative reputation since many people say that they only make the pores larger, something which I absolutely don't want to happen. Can you give me advice on products
  13. Hey, new here. Begging for some help. Absolutely cannot take it anymore. I have been suffering from acne for years. All throughout high school and college. For years now i have tried everything possible to clear my acne, from going to a derm. And getting prescription to every over the counter product possible. I have had it. I cant look in the mirror without wanting to rip my face off. I have spent easily over $1000 on products/treatments and i am so depressed. I believe i have comdeonal acne be
  14. In desperate need of any advice!! I had to stop taking birth control in November due to significant issues with depression, and my skin was doing pretty well up until 2-3 months ago when it started to all of a sudden become worse than it has ever been. I've been using 3% adapalene on my face in addition to Curology mix (azelaic acid, zinc pyrithione, clindamycin mix) and my face is NEARLY clear with only occasional breakouts on my jawline, which I can deal with. My face has never been so clea
  15. I have always had clogged pores on my skin. I have tried many things to try and cure it but then it only makes it work. I just leave it alone, but sometimes cystic acne pops up and I don't know what to do about it. This has been going on for almost 2 years and I still don't know what to do. This morning I realized that a pimple popped up. Help?

    Day 2

    Day 2 Hello! Hope you all had a good day. Thanks to it being a sunday I had another day without makeup. Even though it’s only been one day without touching my face there is already an improvement. My skin is less red, some scabs have healed and flaked away and there are no new spots today. I did knock the head off of one tiny whitehead under my eyebrow today before I realised what I was doing. But that was it, and everytime I found myself leaning in towards the mirror to inspect the

    Sagging pores

    I am seventeen, female, and I noticed within the past few months that my skin is aging rapidly compared to before. I am a skin freak, I own every type of skin product and I keep track of my skin and it isn't doing so well, as well as my products not even working on my face anymore. I use to not have any visible pores on my cheeks, now they are large and some even misshaped from what I can see. I have always had sagging and very thin skin under my eyes and tried accepting that I would always have
  19. Well like i used to have a lot of breakouts and now my face's pores has been open a lot larger and i was wondering if there are ways to clean it out and shrink it. Also my skin feels really rough because of the pores.. solutions?

    Day 3

    Day 3 Back to work today so I’ve had make up on all day. Also I’ve been too busy to really have the time to inspect my face and pores so there’s been zero picking today! Here’s what I look like with some makeup on - I can hide the spots reasonably well but the texture of the clogged pores shows in some angles and light. H x
  21. 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?
  22. Hi everyone: I´ve had hundreds of clogged pores throughout my whole face for the last year or so. My doctor told me to use azelaic acid (20%) to get rid of this problem. I have used it for the last three weeks and have not seen a real change. Has anyone here had a good experience with this acid on clogged pores? Does it really help to get rid of these bumps or does it just prevent them? Thank you very much.
  23. Ok so I have read on here that using/ rubbing ice cubes over your pores, helps shrink them? IS this true and has anyone here used this method???
  24. I'm not sure if what I have is acne scarring or hyper pigmentation. I started breaking out 4 years ago when I was in high school and have been on prescription pills, prescription topical treatments, and have tried many drugstore treatments. I've been using tea tree oil every night for the past couple of months and now I don't have any pimples (maybe one every couple of weeks or around my time of month). So if you glide your hand over my face it feels completely smooth and soft. When I put on mak
