  1. 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
  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
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. I don't generally get your average pimple - my spots are under the skin. In certain lights my skin looks fine but then in daylight or bright light my skin looks covered in white bumps. I took a close up photo and see that these are actually blackheads! Please see photo. Is there anything I can do at home to get rid of these? I have tried scrubs, cleansers, a clarisonic. I also wonder if micro needling or a peel would help? Thanks
  6. 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
  7. My skin has gotten a lot worse over the past year for some reason. I didn't have these scars or enlarged pores a year and a half ago. My routine used to be just washing my face with Biore charcoal face wash everyday then putting Vaseline brand lotion in. Nowadays I use Biore salycylic acid face wash with the same lotion because it gets rid of random pimples before they even show. I've tried a Biore face mask or a week but didn't notice much difference in my skin
  8. Has anyone tried the carbon spectra peel?
  9. i already have a problem with picking at my skin unintentionally, and yesterday i tried taking a bobby pin and using it to pop my black heads, my skin was clear besides a few pimples and black heads on my nose. so i took the bobby pin and all i know was that i started popping them at 4am and ended at 3pm (a long time), and my skin was really red and my pores were huge, which i'm guessing is from me scraping at my skin to get the blackheads out. i took a shower after and my face looked really bad
  10. So my dermatologist has had me on Epiduo Forte and Solodyn for 13 days now, and it's been working great for my acne (cystic and closed comedones). Backstory: my forehead had been the worst the areas since 6 months ago when this all started. So all the products/treatments I tried mainly concentrated there. I still put makeup on the lower half of the face, but never on the forehead. and when my skin started to get better, I wanted to give a bit of concealer or even foundati

    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
  12. The last couple of days I have come to the conclusion that I will be Forever Alone forever. I'm too late in the dating game and will never marry and barely have a social life all thanks to acne and some other personal issues I had when I was younger. Now I'm just trying to figure out how to accept this and be content while seeing happy clear skinned people everywhere. Some of us are just cursed.
  13. Zoom in of my nose. Worsened the past 6 months. Pores enlarged. Redness.
  14. 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.
  15. Hi, I've got clogged pores on my nose that are really bothering me. They were tiny dots before, now they are red and make my nose look red in general. Does anyone know how to get rid this?
  16. Hey all, New here but long term stalker of the forums. When i was about 14-17 i had bad skin, then i started Panoxyl and from them until I was 24 i had the clearest skin, not a spot in sight (unless i created it, im a picker). Anyway,I got really ill with an unknown virus and started losing weight and being generally unwell which lasted about 3 months. During this time my forehead broke out despite still using BP with these horrible flesh colored bumps. Long story short is i went off of
  17. 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
  18. 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?
  19. 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
  20. I used to suffer from widespread acne but I cleared it thanks to Benzoyl Peroxide. However, ever since my acne cleared I have suffered from a combination of very oily skin and enlarged pores, many of which are deeply clogged and keep forming blackheads and/or whiteheads. I'm only 19 but I feel like my skin looks really old. I cleanse, tone and then moisturise every morning and evening (I will sometimes use benzoyl peroxide in areas where I have spots). In addition, to help breakouts and to att
  21. 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
  22. 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!
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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?
