Acne and Skin in general
I think that especially with my page, posting about clearing my skin, skin struggles, taking pills, and countless products, it is so important to remember what I am getting out of all this. CONFIDENCE! Some of us are on this app just to learn more about how to keep our skin young and healthy! Which is pretty much all of us. But most also struggle with countless skin insecurities that we want recommendations and solutions for. I know that in the back of my head when I think of acne I think that I need it to be gone in order to be happy or have confidence in my skin. Which is absolutely incorrect. Having a nice skincare routine and wanting the best for your skin is absolutely the goal. But please please please do not forget that you are beautiful, insecurities don't define you, and you don't need clear, unattainable skin to have confidence. If this idea that perfect skin is possible and something that you should have, then you aren't surrounding yourself with the correct people or accounts of social media. Photoshop and filters exist, so don't trust the internet or aim goals based on the internet. You are beautiful and loved. Your insecurities don't define you whatsoever, so please get in the mindset that any type of skin you have, is completely perfect and beautiful.
Help!!!!! Acne or allergic reaction ??
Hi guys, I came about this app due to me searching for products and tips on how to treat this rash/acne on my face. I want to be helpful and maybe help someone going through the same thing, as I am still currently recovering from this!!! I am really hoping I don’t gross some people :/ about two months ago, I had to wear those n-95 masks at my work, due to Covid, and I believe it’s what gave me this allergic reaction! I hope you’re able to see but my skin was covered in these small bumps, or like I described them at that time, like tiny small blisters! They were so painful! On the other hand, I suffer from acne already, so I decided to go see a Profesional and he prescribed Retin-A and another medication that I can’t recall the name! I no longer have this going on but I was left with so many red dots and healing scars and bumpy skin. I know skincare takes a long time to work but If you guys have any recommendations of what products I should use and also avoid, feel free to comment!! I would really appreciate it!! I have since boughten a lot of skincare, yet I haven’t tried All since I’m testing little by little and getting to know my skin and the products I’m putting on my skin! Thank you 🥰🥰
This is the first time Ive had a acne breakouts I get pimple breakouts but never had acne I’ve realized it’s very hard to make it go away. Im not sure if it’s hormonal acne or just regular acne or I’m breaking out because of these stupid mask we have to wear . I’ve been very stressed with 2 jobs and not getting enough sleep I’ve even thought about quitting my jobs because I’m so insecure with my face and don’t even wanna look at customers,and when I take videos and pictures for instagram or Snapchat I always have to use a filter. I’m going to a party on Saturday I really want it to go away by then I’m seeing my old friends from school excited and nervous because of my face I’m thinking in my head what if they think I’m a catfish because on social media I have “clear skin” because of the filters then in real life my skin looks like this. I’m going to buy more skincare products for my skin any recommendations? Motivation and advice would help
I have tried almost everything... help!
For the past year or so I have been in a constant battle with my skin. I always had clear skin in highschool apart from the occasional hormonal cyst. Last summer I got off of birth control and it seems like ever since then my face has gone haywire. My forehead has so many small bumps that are NOT fungal (I have tried nizoral etc.) My chin had small bumps too but after squeezing at them too much they have turned into angry cysts (I get a lot of hormonal cystic acne there in general too). In the photos my chin is very red from benzoyl peroxide. I have used Paula’s Choice BHA, Pixi Glow Tonic, apple cider vinegar, and The Ordinary’s BHA peel to exfoliate, but they all seem to exacerbate my issues. I have dry/combo skin, with my cheeks being on the drier side and rarely breaking out, and my T-zone being the problem area. Right now I have been using stratia liquid gold moisturizer, as well as the ordinary’s niacinamide, hylauronic acid, and squalane. I have tried so many cleansers, primarily cosrx low ph morning cleanser, the ordinary’s squalane cleanser, and cetaphil. Any clue as to what I should try next? I’m tempted to stop everything and just use nothing on my face, but I don’t want to be left with a bunch of scarring!
Hey 👋🏽 guys so I just wanted to know if you have any other recommendations for an acne cream because as you can see I wasn’t really a fan of this one. Here are some reasons why : I’m really not a fan of the texture. It’s really hard to spread onto the face and it dries instantly. (I know that people like me who have combination skin more to the oilier side should like this but nah 😂) When I first tried it my skin went crazy dry ! My skin had never peeled like that before and let’s just say it was kind of scary 😅. And sometimes I felt like it irritated my skin. Every time I applied it to my face the cream peeled so it was very annoying to use. Even though I didn’t put anything before it. So you have to quickly but carefully apply it to your face. (Most of the times I just patted in.) So yeah basically not a fan. If you have anything to recommend please let me know and you can also check out my other post which is kind of related to this.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
