my acne has always been a huge insecurity of mine, until recently I started forcing myself to see it as normal rather than a disease. I’ve tried many products but they never have really cleared me up. I’ve heard that raw African black soap is really good for acne (which I have quite a bit of) my skin used to be a lot worse years back but never to the point of cystic acne, as of right now it’s very controlled but I break out easily. Any advice on what brand has the best raw black soap or any good cleansers to clear up acne? I don’t have much acne but I do have the little tiny bumps that won’t go away and a few acne bumps here and there.
my skin has been oily for years, i would get a pimple here and there when i usually ate one chocolate, skin has always been on the bumpy side though, and i have alot of uneven skin tone. now to try to get rid of the oils and bumpiness my sister recommend using the body shop tea tree soap, then the body shot vitamin c scrub and them the tea tree face mask and to sleep in it. i tried it and got chemical burn, completely broke me out and make my skin more sensitive to everything, i used to be able to use estee lauder double wear and now even that breaks me out. ive tried all the vitamins everyone has recommended, i tried clinique, stirvectin, hydrolic acid, now im on cerave the light blue bottle face wash, i tone put the hydrolic serum and face moisturizer im so close to giving up, my face just looks horrible now i have alot of scarring, still bumpy and red. its embarrassing, any recommendations welcomed!!
my skin has been acting up
and in the second picture i have a lot of red spots but they aren’t acne and i have no clue where they are from. on both sides of my face i have acne spots and some scars and i need some advice on what to use to help clear my skin up. my skin type is oily and sometimes it can be combination. i currently use Biore charcoal wash, Soap and Glory vitamin C facial wash, and clean and clear morning burst facial wash. i use the Biore and Clean and Clear one after the other and just slightly wash my face with the Clean and Clear because i like how it makes my face feel refreshed and the day after i use the Soap and Glory facial wash. I switch off nights from toning my face with Thayers witch hazel and alba pineapple enzyme facial wipes. Occasionally if i have a pimple i want to go away i will use a benzoyl peroxide spot treatment or mario badescu drying lotion. i hope this gives y’all an insight on what my skin care routine looks like and what i can do to help my skin be smooth and have even toning
I have combination acne prone skin but lately have been super dry. I use simple skincare brand in the morning and then shea moisture black soap and ponds at night. Any other products or regimes i could try?
Can anyone please recommend a good foundation that won’t make me extremely glory but not matte either. Just a natural finish look from lite to medium coverage ? I do suffer from acne so something that won’t affect it.
Does anyone know anything about skin care? I need suggestions for a routine to stick to. Nothing works for me (sadly including African black soap)and I’m beginning to run out of hope for my skin. I have combination, but more oily skin. I don’t get big breakouts (besides the occasional “under the skin” pimples) but I get EXTREMELY bad blackheads which turn into bad acne. I also pop them sometimes which I know is bad. I don’t have a big budget to keep buying things only for them not to work. I just need a routine of products I know will work. I’ll take any suggestions because I have never had a bad reaction to anything.
I would like to start a face routine... I have dry/oily/ sensitive skin and also dark circles and bags under my eyes due to me working night shifts... I need a full set from face soap, exfoliates, moisturizer, toner you name it PLEASE HELP!!
Best products for super sensitive skin? I usually use dove sensitive skin bar soap (out of everything I’ve tried it’s the only thing that doesn’t break me out) 2x a day & neutrogena hydro boost gel moisturizer! I need an actual face wash!! Help
hey! no matter what i try, i cant get rid of all of my acne. it’s not too bad right now, however i still break out in little groups. ive tried like everything - drug store brands, name brands, proactiv, curology, everything. i am currently using african black soap as a face wash. it seems to be working okay but i want something that actually works really well!
I had extremely sensitive skin and can only use unscented bar soap to clean my face. my skin will break out in hives or a random rash if i use anything else. Does anyone know a good facial cleanser specifically made to not cause allergic reactions?
Need help DESPERATELY with acne (I’m a picker too) but been so stressed out laterally iv been breaking out and my soap, foundation and face wipes not doing much to help clear it up or even hide it. Just keep getting more 😑 wicked embarrassing and self-conscious 😔
So I have dry skin, but sometimes after I put on moisturizer my t zone gets oily. I’ve been using the ￼ Clinique facial soap and toner, but I honestly feel like they are just braking me out so much.. so my question is, what are some good facial products I can use that won’t break me out?
So, long story time:
About a year ago I was using the Cetaphil gentle face wash and heard good reviews about the Cetaphil bar soap and started using that instead. All of a sudden I got terrible acne and it has not stopped since. I had PERFECT skin before I tried that with only the occasional hormonal breakout (being a girl sucks , ladies). I do not know what skincare products are rhe best. I’ve been on antibiotics (worked great but interferes with my other medications), I’ve been on proactiv for 4 months and haven’t seen a difference at all, and I’ve tried changing my diet (took a food sensitivity test as well) and nothing is working. Has anyone tried this skincare routine?? If so, how is it?
Anyone who struggles with body acne please help!!! I have never struggled with acne in my life until now and my back and chest seem like nothing can clear them besides laying in a tanning bed 🙈 I’m desperate I want to clear my skin without resorting to a tanning bed to burn it off 😬 I’ve tried some paula’s choice products that didn’t really help and a soap called sal3 and nothing helps🙃
I’m new to this so bare with me! 🤗
I am currently taking Accutane and using the CeraVe facial cleanser, AM moisturizer, and PM moisturizer. I am looking for a new facial cleanser and a good moisturizer for morning and night. I have heard that Johnson’s baby soap and lotion works good? Any suggestions?
