  1. Is Mineral Makeup Good for Acne?

    All makeup contains some minerals, which are necessary for makeup to have color. Pure mineral makeup is makeup that consists only of minerals. In other words, true mineral makeup does not contain any fragrances, water, oils, waxes, or preservatives. Just minerals.1,2 Since pure mineral makeup only contains dry solids, it usually comes in the form of loose or pressed powders.1,2 However, many manufacturers today use the term "mineral makeup" loosely to market a variety of products. For...
  2. Can Acne Medications or Treatments Age the Skin?

    Skin Oil (Sebum) and Aging The medical term for skin oil is sebum. Sebum is important when it comes to acne because, generally speaking, more sebum means more acne. This is why some anti-acne medications and procedures aim to permanently reduce sebum production. However, we still don't know whether permanently impairing the skin's ability to produce sebum might prematurely age the skin. Two changes happen naturally to sebum as people age. We can see that isotretinoin, photodynamic therapy,...
  3. Hello Acne.org people !!! I've searching trough lots of topics regarding my question,and i can't find a "complete" response lol. So,i love styling my hair,and i did before time ago before accutane. When this acne issue started i stopped doing it since my confidence was destroyed. Now, i fell (and look) a lot better,so i started doing it again. But i have a big concern. My hair is really straight. Accutane already dried it completely. So,now it's dry and a bit thinner. This c

  6. What Are Ingrown Hairs?

    The medical term for "ingrown hairs" is pseudofolliculitis barbae. Hair removal practices which can cause it include: Shaving Waxing Plucking Threading Ingrown hairs result in firm skin-colored or red or dark acne-like lesions that can be itchy or sore. When they are caused by shaving, they are often called "razor bumps" or "shave bumps." Sometimes, these lesions can fill with liquid that resembles pus. Although these breakouts appear similar to acne, they are a completely different phenomenon. Who Is Most Likely...
  7. After getting my back waxed for the first time, I got acne on my back after few days..and now the back is filled with acne. Any solutions to cure the same?
  8. Hi guys! I'm new to the site but could really use some support & advice. I'm on day 14 of 30 mg/day accutane. The biggest difference I've noticed in my skin is my blackheads are SO dark and my chin where there used to be lots of little clogged pores feels like straight sandpaper. I'm assuming it's because my oil production is starting to decrease? But I feel like my blackheads are just everywhere and evident. Pore strips aren't helping either. Has anyone exfoliated while on this dose of

  12. Is Lipstick Worse for Acne than Lip Stain?

    When choosing a lipstick or lip stain, you may be concerned about how these cosmetics might contribute to acne. Although the lips themselves do not develop acne, lip products can transfer to the skin around the mouth, where they could potentially cause acne. In addition, we know that physically irritating the skin can aggravate acne, so if you have to rub the skin to remove your lip makeup, this could also contribute to acne.1 To date,...
