In case anyone was wondering...
Just an update on my skin. Breaking down my routine is more difficult than it should be bc I’m always trying to achieve overnights results but i’m also a realistic person so Ik it’ll take time to have my glass skin back😔 I’ll include what my skin looks like currently and what it used to look like, just to express the feeling of going from decent skin to skin that is easily reactive & breaks out daily. If anyone has any tips... please help. I’m not sure which direction to go. Thinking ab going to an esthetician but prior to, I think I should seek out a dermatologist.

olivia6Hi! I had the exact same thing happen to me. I’ve never had perfect skin but when the pandemic hit my skin around my cheeks and jawline freaked out from the stress and mask wearing... my doctor thinks it’s hormonal acne and I totally agree with that assessment. I know you’re tempted to buy a bunch of products to fix your skin but don’t forget to take a look at your lifestyle and learn how to manage stress. I’m on two prescription acne treatments: tretinoin and aczone

help— need acne & peach fuzz tips
so i naturally grow a lot of peach fuzz/little hairs on my face and i get acne really easily because my skin is oily. does anyone have tips on how to deal with peach fuzz when being acne prone? i read that i shouldn’t shave my face while having acne because it will spread more bacteria on my face. is that true? i don’t like my face looking so hairy, any tips can help, thanks also — i took a close up video of my skin so people can get an idea on how my skin looks. UPDATE: so i did like Mallory suggested and got some of those razor things. they work really well; i didn’t get too much fuzz off bc i didn’t want to cut myself (again; i tried it on my eyebrow). thank you to everyone who gave me suggestions!! i appreciate it!!!
Help. Bumps on forehead. Won’t go away
From hormonal acne to fungal acne… I’ve tried it all and can’t seem to figure out exactly why the bumps on my forehead won’t go away? Please any advice I’ll greatly be appreciated. And yes I did try saltgrass it, Benzer Prock side, and antifungal shampoo regimes. They don’t hurt and they do not itch but they can’t be popped. Very Deep pimples
Should I change my routine?
I have combo and acne prone skin. I used to use Himalaya skin products, until i switched to western skincare. I now use a camomile makeup remover from The Body Shop, Aloe foaming cleanser from The Body Shop, Tea tree oil also from The Body Shop, Niacinamide from The Ordinary & hyaluronic acid from The Ordinary & SPF moisturiser from CeraVe. Ive seen improvement in my skin with major pimples being diminished pretty quickly but I still have bumps & pimples all over my face, blackheads on my nose & little bumps on my eyelids. I struggle with dull skin & my skin texture generally changes during seasons.
I need help! I haven’t had acne since a teen. Fast forward it started back after 30’s. I have scaring and occasional breakouts only in my cheek and chin areas and now this consistent scaring😩. If anyone else feels my pain please share products or advice.
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

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
