  1. The day after my first treatment I did not notice any redness, peeling, or breakouts. The third day after my face did peel (all over) but so minor and slightly that you couldn't even really notice it. Along the fourth/fifth day I did notice the breaking out symptoms they talked about. I got one pimple on my left cheek and four small pimples along my jawline and my scars from previous acne are still healing. *remember, acne does get worse before it gets better. BUT I think my breakouts hav
  2. i just had a gp appointment and my doctor told me that benzoyl peroxide above a value of 3% will only lead you to suffer the side effects, eg) dryness and redness. he said the sweet spot for treating acne with bp is 3%. he said anything below is too little and anything above is too harsh. please read this and action it, i can confirm that the 3% has been vastly more effective to me than the previous 5% i was using.
  3. I am looking for treatments, oils, masks, pretty much anything you can buy online or in store to treat those pesky pitted scars left over from acne. I want to find everything possible out there before reaching out to dermatologists and or high end treatments.
  4. I'm 20 now and have been taking antibiotics since I was 13... Honestly feel like I've tried everything so any help appreciated. Been on Lymecycline, Erythromycin, Roaccutane for 8 months (this 100% worked but my skin got INSANELY bad before it got better and don't really want to go on that again, even if I am tempted). I've used pretty much every topical cream prescription under the sun, and have tried Kefir regime for 2 months but this didn't seem to do anything. I am currently o
  5. Hi everyone thanks for visiting I am aged 25 I am facing acne from my teenage but it wasn't that severe like now. I tried using Clinique products (anti-blemish kit) it was very good later I went to laser skin clinic Australia to treat my acne scars and they suggest to use the skintitut Australian made products ,then I started to see more pimples I have spent $1000 nearly for the treatment they started the blue LED treatment to kill the bacterias before they start micro needling as my acne
  6. Hey there. I started breaking out in the winter and it was actually due to my birth control. Instead of regulating my hormones, it was screwing them up. So I went off birth control and my acne drastically improved AND I started taking a supplement called DIM which balances your hormones. My acne was gone within 1-2 months and I was living acne-free with no make-up for 2-3 months.Then, wouldn't ya know it, I became pregnant and BAM, one zit after another. I don't have really bad acne and it only
  7. I have struggled with acne for quite some time starting at 16 whenI was prescribed progestrogene pills from my pediatric doc because I mentioned to her my acne was bothering me at that point it being fairly mild but still bothersome. She gave me this because I asks her of birth control pills which i hear helped. fast forward I continually took them for 6 months later developing moderate acne that was just not getting better when my parents and I decided to stop taking them after we consulted w
  8. Hi guys I have stuggled with acne on and off fora good 4-5 years now. During the early-mid stages of my acne, I was a bit of an acne picker, as I was young and carefree about any future scars I could get as long as I got rid of the acne I had at the time. The acne was predominately on the left side of my face during this phase of picking, so I've been left with a rough looking left cheek. Anyway, acne wise things are looking up from where they were six months ago - I'm currently in the end of
  9. Hello I have been looking at the website for so long now and I wanted to get opinions on TCA Cross and what to do for the after treatment. So I had great skin throughout high school and then when I got to college my skin freaked out! Now I cleared my skin up, but I still get really inflamed red acne sometimes. Upon clearing my skin up I found that I have a few acne scars on my left check that are pretty deep and other are minor scars and I have another scar on my forehead that looks like a huge
  10. So if anyone takes the time to actually read this, I just want to say thanks, because I just need someone to listen and understand what the hell I'm going through. I figure here is the best place. I guess I'll start by explaining my "acne story." My skin was smooth and clear for most of middle school except for some forehead acne that began in 7th grade and didn't go away until sophomore year of high school simply because all that time it was being irritated my bangs. I also started using a
  11. I am interested in doing the tca cross scar treatment at home. I haven't found much information about it online. I was wondering if anyone knows how exactly to do tca cross? Any links or videos would really help me and anybody else interested in doing tca cross at home. Are some scars too big to do tca cross on? What size are scars supposed to be to do tca cross on?
  12. So its been about a year since i cured my acne through diet, but unfortunately when i first started getting acne i used to pick them which has left some scars on my forehead. I've left them for a year and there is no hyperpigmentation and they've filled in a bit but the scars are still noticeable, especially in that blue indoor light. Anything i can do at home to reduce the scarring?
  13. Have just been told that UK has almost no Skinoren in any pharmacies as manufacturer isn't sending it out and it could be months before we get any. I'm planning to buy some on the net in the meantime in case it is a while before I can get some on prescription again and my GP is hoping that he can prescribe me the next best thing. Will this be Finacea gel, do you think? I know they both have Azelaic acid in them but I thought that Finacea is mainly used for Rosacea, not acne?
  14. Most medical conditions and disorders like acne can be cured, or at the very least, the symptoms greatly reduced by using naturally occurring herbs, oils and essential oils. I will give you an example. SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH Essential oils usually used in aromatherapy have been found to kill the deadly MRSA bacteria according to research carried out at The University of Manchester, United Kingdom. Tests revealed that three essential oils killed MRSA and E. coli as well as many othe

  17. As we all know acne can be hard enough . However some are also struggling with eczema . As I do myself I know its hard. I got a patch on my face so I applied hydrocortisone and this then gave me 4 pimples that ache as well as the eczema still being there and I use BENZOYL peroxide which shouldn't be used on eczema (can't understand why my doctor gave it me ) However tonight I am going to just put sudocrem on it as it is for acne and eczema so it seems a good idea , I also take antihistamine, whi
  18. Hello. Iam still a fourteen year old girl. I know my acne could be due to hormonal imbalances. I break out midly. About two or three pimples. My only problem is fading these marks/spots that they leave after I have treated the pimple. I am in so desperate need of remedies because my scarring is just getting worse. How could i fade these quicker? Please be considerate of the products because i live in the Philippines so i might not find the products mentioned.
  19. History Hi, this is my first post, I'm a 19 year old male who had a little more than moderate acne from about ages 12 or 13 to around 17, I started the Proactiv+ 3 step program when I was 17 and after a little while I had almost complete grip on my breakouts, they barely entered my mind, although they still happened often but not too often. I just turned 19 and up until literally around a day or two after my 19th birthday, I had never had any acne scarring in my life, through my worst years of
  20. First, I want to say that I hope nothing but the best for those going through the tough acne stage. I've been there before, and it's not easy for sure. For those of you who would like to add on or share anything, feel free to do so. I would gladly appreciate it. I want to share my personal experience to you all, hoping that it will be of some help. Here is my story. I am a 16 year old male and I had pretty severe acne as a kid growing up. At the moment I'm still going through puberty, and
  21. Hello everyone! I'm new to this website but pretty much I'm a 14 year old girl who struggles with acne. My main problem area is my forehead and I use to only get pimples on my forehead but this summer I started to get pimples on my cheeks and mouth area. Typically I have 10-15 pimples (mainly whiteheads). I have tried numerous drugstore products like neutrogena, clean and clear, etc. When those didnt work I tried Murad Acne Complex which did help and almost completely cleared my acne but then al
  22. Hello everyone, After looking at various pictures of different people's acne scars, I began wondering how long a person typically has to suffer from acne before they begin to see scarring. I have suffered from acne on and off for about 4 years but it's gotten drastically worse in the last year. I've begun to notice that hyper pigmentation marks don't seem to vanish nearly as quick anymore. I've also discovered my first marks that resemble little prickly dents in my face. I realize that
  23. Would you consider a mixture of 5% Tea Tree Oil and water on a washcloth and put on the face an effective treatment for the face? I just started two days ago and I think every other day for 5-10 minutes with that solution and a warm washcloth will be beneficial.
