I don't know what these scabs are all from - but I guess it's from cystic acne right? I think I might've spread the infection to my nose by picking at the one on my chin (the red spot), which has been switching between healing and being infected for a few years. So I guess I have cystic acne then, right? What are some products that help? I appreciate anyone helping me !! ❤️❤️ A few things to add: I do have one hole on my chin right near that big red one, which sometimes is a blackhead and other times is just there infected I guess. The red spot on my left nostril oozes this yellowy stuff, same with my chin, and becomes a scab and the flakes if that cyst is disrupted/picked at/if the skin tears or moves (both of the cysts tend to hurt a lot and ooze a lot because they're on spots of my face that move a lot. I wouldn't have such a big problem if these were on my forehead or cheek) Some products I have for acne & redness: Clearasil - Daily Clear Vanishing Acne Treatment Cream Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment Murad - Blemish Control Rapid Relief Spot Treatment Aveeno - Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

luvmeif you think it’s become infected you may need to contact a dermatologist to make sure your skin isn’t truly infected. with a cyst if it’s happened on & off it means it hasn’t gone away. i’ve had cystic acne on my butt 🤫 but it only cleaned up after years of pain once i contacted a derm. antibiotic cream or pills of antibiotics might really help. good luck honey!

Hi friends👋🏼 I’ve been using this wreck of a year to FINALLY start taking care of my skin! I did a TON of research over the summer and finally started a multi-step routine last month. I’d appreciate some seasoned skincare advice, since I’m still mostly a newbie 🥺 ☀️ Cleanser: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin (works well, no strong medicated scent, and it makes me feel clean right away!) Toner: DICKINSON'S - Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner (not great, not bad, just an average toner) Serums: COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid (can already see a difference on my nose/chin after just a week!) DERMA•E - Vitamin C Concentrated Serum (LOVE this serum! I can already see a slight brightening of my skin after 1 week. I also love the smell🥰) The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% (Only gave 3 stars because I can’t tell if the recent decrease in acne is due to starting this or my period ending?) Eye Cream: VERSED - VACATION EYES Brightening Eye Gel (pretty sure this isn’t doing anything... I just keep using it because I already have it...) Spot Treatment: Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment (Similarly to TO, can’t tell yet if this is working or if my acne was more hormonal¿) Moisturizer: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream Sunscreen: Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 🌚 Make-Up Remover: CeraVe - Makeup Removing Cleanser Cloths (I use these on my lazy evenings) 1st Cleanse: VERSED - DAY DISSOLVE Cleansing Balm (LOOOVE. Helps get everything loose for my 2nd cleanse) 2nd Cleanse: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin *Same Serums/Eye Creams/Spot Treatment as AM* Retinol: CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum (using every night and I don’t think it’s too harsh, but it’s also not doing much?) Moisturizer: CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream (very rich & creamy!) Vaseline - Cocoa Butter Healing Jelly, Rich Moisturizing (on lips and extra dry areas for locked in moisture through the night) What’s the verdict? Are there products I should add/remove/change the order of? I REALLY want a better eye cream and have heard good things about THE inkey LIST - Brighten-i Eye Cream??I’m also thinking about replacing my current toner with THE inkey LIST - Glycolic Acid Liquid Toner 100ml. THANKS 🖤

Hey guys seriously need help with my face!! When i was younger didn’t really care about my face but now I’m all into skin care. To be honest, I don’t even know my skin type. Those are the products that I use everyday day and night. Except I use the Pigmentbio foaming cream every week. Apparently I have huge pores. So I start with the Cerave cleanser and then I use the hyaluronic acid and the Niacinamide by The Ordinary. I then use some of my acne spot treatment on the big pimples and then I use the anti spot lightning cream. I top it off with the Cerave lotion. If someone can please tell me what to throw out/not use or what I should use, please let me know 😭

Holy grail for breakouts
The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% I’ve been using this for less than a month and have not suffered a major breakout since then! It’s also beginning to lighten my hyperpigmentation from my terrible breakouts all around my chin. I usually have very sensitive skin and breakout from most products (including all of Ceraves cleansers that everyone hypes and the Ordinary’s Niacinamide). The only reasons why I gave it four stars is because the texture is too thick to use during the day with makeup or other products, as it starts to pill. While it’s a great price, note that the bottle is small but you only need to use very little, less than a pea size amount for the whole face. I actually just told my dermatologist about this new product and she said her patients have seen much success using it too and was surprised it’s so unheard of. She specifically recommended the ordinary because of the price, apparently it’s incredibly expensive as a prescription with a higher percentage. Highly recommend, especially for someone who’s battled acne since she can remember and has tried almost every prescription topical treatment on the market!

What are some easy changes to improve ACNE?
Treating acne can be quite complex and confusing wondering what products to use for your skin, however there are some simple changes a person can make to help improve their acne. Just these simple adjustments in a routine can make a difference in inflammation and irritation in your acne. The first change to help improve acne is to keep your routine simple. It is super tempting to want to add all the products targeted towards treating acne and try to get rid of it overnight. Sadly many of these products do more harm than good to your skin, can irritate it or cause more acne in the process. What does keeping your routine simple mean? This means cleansing, using a toner, moisturizer, sunscreen and a targeted treatment to help treat any acne on the face. Less is more when it comes to treating acne, because topical ingredients can be irritating to the skin causing dryness or flaking. Pimple patches also known as hydrocolloid bandages have been used for years in the medical field, for injuries and to help aid in wound healing. Acne is a type of wound which is a great reason to use the bandages on them, specifically on white heads, pustules and cysts. Patches come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some patches now include micro points with targeted ingredients for brightening and acne too. One of the more common BHAs to treat acne is Salicylic acid or Willow Bark Extract. There are some other star ingredients that work to treat acne like sulphur, zinc oxide, benzoyl peroxide and azealic acid. Sulphur is not a common ingredient due to the smell, but it treats acne by absorbing excess sebum (oil), exfoliates and antibacterial properties. Zinc oxide is an antioxidant most commonly found in mineral/physical sunscreens but has anti-inflammatory properties, making it perfect to use for inflamed or acneic skin. Benzoyl Peroxide works by killing bacteria, increases cell turnover in the skin, absorbing excess sebum in the skin, and making it perfect for all the types of acne (whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, pustules and papules). While benzoyl peroxide is amazing for treating acne it can be drying and/or irritating on the skin if overused so it is important to remember this. Lastly azelaic acid, an ingredient that isn’t quite as popular but packs a punch, by reducing inflammation in the skin, as well as it exfoliates and helps with uneven skin tone. The highest percentage you can find without a prescription is 10%, which is just as effective in treatment of acne. #CheriePartner

I need something to keep my skin calm
Ok so it seems like I have rosacea since my cheeks are basically always red and I have all the symptoms, plus I always get these painful bumps and acne on my chin. I'm assuming they're cystic acne since I've had acne like this on my chin for a few years now. They take forever to go away and I currently have three now on my chin. Any good products to try that help with rosacea and cystic acne? (they can be different products - as in it doesn't have to be one to treat both) Thanks!! Good things to know/ PS: I have combo (oily & dry) skin, sensitive skin (especially with dyes/perfumes), and my face burns easily. I use the Clearasil - Daily Clear Vanishing Acne Treatment Creamevery day or every other day on my cysts and it seems to work but I think I need something that works faster. Also, I have the Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serumfor redness which I didn't know I could use it for that. (thanks @jassintadoe) Thanks!!

4 step night routine
This is my typical nighttime skin routine and it's so simple and easy while targeting the problem areas for my skin. This routine hydrates and smooths skin while treating any acne or enlarged pores by tightening them. Here's the steps: 1 pump of the Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser on my face when I'm in the shower and I usually wash my face with my hands or with a soft washcloth if I need to 2 pumps on a cotton round of Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector and I use it when I have acne everywhere. Also, when I don't have acne everywhere, I use the Clearasil - Daily Clear Vanishing Acne Treatment Cream for spot treatments A generous dime-sized amount of the Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream for my whole face since it's so hydrating Lastly, to get rid of any redness and to finish off, I spray the Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray until I feel I used enough ~ 5 seconds usually and I don't try to be dripping either

Say Hello to PHA’S 👋🏻
PHA stands for polyhydroxy acid. PHA’s are nothing new but they don’t get as much attention as the AHA’s and BHA’s we see everywhere. To figure out exactly which one the product contains you’d you have to read through the full ingredients list. And even then it may not be obvious. Instead of gluconolactone, for example, the ingredient may be listed as gluconic acid, zinc gluconate, or copper gluconate. (Technically gluconolactone is a sugar alcohol while zinc gluconate is a salt.) They all do basically the same thing when it comes to exfoliation, but the research that exists on these chemicals usually only focuses on one at a time. So it’s important to remember that any conclusions about one compound may not be applicable to another. The two most important things you need to know about PHA’s are that they are both an exfoliant AND a humectant!! So not only do they get rid of the dead skin cells, they also hydrate your skin at the same time!!! This means PHA’s are gentle and can be used to help sun damage, acne, and have anti-aging properties!! PHA’s work to dissolve the bonds they hold dead skin cells together so they can be easily washed away. PHA’s have a large molecular structure so they do not penetrate as deeply into the skin as AHAs or BHAs. Although that sounds like a drawback, it’s actually a really great thing for sensitive skin types because it means that PHAs work more gently than other types of chemical exfoliants. **In a frequently cited 2004 study published in Dermatologic Surgery, researchers found evidence that gluconolactone could prevent some UV-induced damage in mouse skin cells. These same researchers also looked at the effects of gluconolactone in 11 human participants who applied two lotions to specific areas of their backs six times a day for four weeks. One lotion contained glycolic acid, one contained gluconolactone, and a third designated area didn’t get any lotion. After that time the researchers exposed a 1 cm area of the application sites to a device that simulates UV rays from the sun and then those areas were biopsied. Using the biopsied tissue, the researchers saw that the skin areas where the glycolic acid lotion had been applied showed an increased number of sunburn cells compared to the control area whereas the areas where gluconolactone had been applied did not. The big takeaway here is that gluconolactone in this study didn’t contribute to photosensitivity, something that’s a known issue with AHAs and BHAs!!! ** Some products with PHA’s Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector COSRX - Low pH PHA Barrier Mist Dr. Jart+ - Dermaclear Micro Milk Peel HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum

GLOSSIER SKINCARE: Reviewing It All! Part 1 ✨
Glossier is hot and happening in the beauty world. You have to been living under a rock if you are not familar with this online beauty brand. In this post, I will review part of their skincare to see if it’s worth it or not! ✨ Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser One should begin every day with a clean face - hence this starting with the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. Like the name suggests, the consistency of this facial cleanser feels jelly, but once you mix it in with water, make-up, dirt - ew! - on your face, it actually turns into a milky consistency. It is a very soft cleanser, especially good for anyone that struggles with dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin, because it does not leave your face feeling squeaky clean. It also does not sting your eyes at all. Would I recommend this product? Yes, if you have dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin and want a cleanser that is soft and leaves your skin hydrated. 🤍 Glossier. - Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector & Glossier. - Cotton Rounds After cleansing, it's time for my favorite skincare step ever: chemical exfoliation. Unlike physical exfoliators that scrape off the surface of your skin, chemical exfoliators like the Glossier Solution gently sloughs dead cells away through chemical exfoliation using 10% of three different acids - Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), and Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) - dissolving the bonds gluing problematic dead cells to the healthy skin beneath. With daily use, expect cleared acne and blackheads, smaller pores, and reduced redness. Skin’s texture will be smoother and softer, and the fabled glow of balanced, healthy skin will be in full force. Glossier also sells these cotton rounds with a G on it. They're soft and they look pretty cute, but they're definitely nothing special. I would personally skip these, except if you are a cotton round connaisseur. Would I recommend this product? Yes, if you struggle with acne, blackheads, or an uneven skin texture. 👌🏻 Glossier. - The Super Duo : Glossier. - Super Bounce Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin B5 Serum & Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum & Glossier. - Super Glow Vitamin C + Magnesium Serum Even though chemical exfoliators are in my opinion the real work horse in any skincare routine, I do love to use a good serum as well. Whatever your skin needs, Glossier came out with The Super Pack - three different serums that can be used as additional supplements for your face whenever your skin needs it. See them as your little helpers whenever your skin has some special needs. They are lightweight, non-greasy, and perfect to use for any skintype. Would I recommend this product? Yes, if you have some extra coin to spend on fancy serums + cute packaging, or if you struggle finding serums that are not too heavy. 💕 #cheriecreator

Best Niacinamide(b3) Serums— Clear Skin for Days
I’m addicted to niacinamide (aka b3!) as a skincare ingredient. One of the most powerful topical antioxidants, it reduces oil and sebum production (less clogged pores!) and also helps reverse hyperpigmentation and scarring. It keeps my skin clear and soft like no other ingredient within skincare, and so I always have a serum of it on hand to make sure my skin stays texture and blemish free. An effective concentration is 5-10%, used once a day. Any more than that will cause irritation! This ingredient shouldn’t burn or sting. If you’re experiencing that and redness, you’re likely allergic to it from a niacin allergy. First up is my HG serum Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum which I’ve been using since it dropped around four years ago. It’s solved so many of my problems, and the 5% niacinamide content doesn’t irritate my skin. It’s not sticky, it smells and feels like water and sinks in very easily. I’ve never had irritation or any issues with this, and I use four drops every night. The fact they made the bottle twice as big for the same price is a huge plus, and means that I only have to repurchase once every three months. I prefer this formulation because it has very little fillers, all the ingredients included in the formulation are either healing or hydrating The second best I’ve found is REVOLUTION - Blemish and Pore Refining Serum - 10% Niacinamide + 1% Zinc which sells for around 7$ at Ulta. It’s really a bargain. It’s a higher concentration of b3, which I noticed started irritating me. When I cut down usage to once every two days using only two drops, the irritation went away. You could also dilute a little bit with toner, which is what I did as well. It’s a bit sticky, but not overwhelmingly as it sinks in quickly and the stickiness disappears. The formulation also has very little fillers and has similar healing ingredients to the glossier serum and doesn’t pill at all, which is why I prefer it over The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% formulation. Sadly I see a ton of people using The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and while it’s cost effective, the formulation really is sub par and the included ingredients are mostly fillers, rather than beneficial healing topicals. Do you use nicinamide? For me, it’s truly been a game changer ingredient in getting and keeping my skin super clear!

In a battle with my skin...
In a battle with my skin...
Well, I think I kind of feel comfortable to share a big part of my insecurities with you guys. I have seen many many ladies sharing their experiences with their acne battle that it has been making me feel like I am not the only one struggling from this (just like I feel when I’m on Instagram). So I decided to share the current skin care routine that I have to see if I can find any suggestions from other girls! I have a combination skin. I have whiteheads, papules, postules and even some nodular acne near my ears. Big pores, dark spots, and uff 😅 Just to be clear, I am breastfeeding for the moment, and I have seen that this new product (I bought it accidentally) made a big change on my face. Which is the the CeraVe - Skin Renewing Retinol Cream Serum in only 2 days my skin was reflecting happiness and healing. It wasn’t until the third time that I used it that I noticed it wasn’t the CeraVe - Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum that I thought I bought because of the retinol. I got so disappointed cuz it can affect my baby so I had to remove it from my routine. I wanted to ask, to any girl who is breastfeeding, which type of products are you ladies implementing m into your routines that it still feels like if you’re getting the same results as using retinol? I took the tretinoin treatment like 5-6 years ago so I know retinol can bring me marvelous results, but I have to wait until my breastfeeding journals ends. 😓 For the meantime, any suggestion? Please don’t judge.

UPDATED NIGHTTIME ROUTINE: MY SKIN CURRENTLY
well... i changed my routine again, but in my defence i was breaking out A LOT on my cheek, chin, and jawline area. Like it was unbearable, i have SO MUCH. Most of them are turning into scars now which is good but with my skin, it takes a long time for it to go away. so here’s my updated routine! weTHE BODY SHOP - Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash no need to further introduce this product, i’ve reviewed it before and it’s one of my favs lol. Fruit of the Earth - Aloe Vera 100% Gel I use this to rehydrate and soothe my skin after washing it. It’s great for moisturizing and helping with acne scares, which is of course great for me. The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA So far so good!! I reviewed this product already and it’s doing great on my skin VICHY - Minéral 89 Face Serum i’ve used this before and it’s pretty good! it does a great job of hydrating my skin to make it look all soft and supple. It also gives me a nice glow and is really good under makeup VICHY - Normaderm Beautifying Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment I’ve used this before again because i had the same problem with my acne and let me just say that it works wonders. In the matter of days my acne shallowing started to decrease in size and fade away. The active pimples became less red and irritated and are slowing going away which is great. The only problem is that when i used it before it dried my skin out a bit, but now i use some hydrating products along with it and it works out very good. Welp that’s my new routine!!! if anyone has any recommendations for acne and acne scars I really wanna hear it! also if anyone can help me care for my acne that would be amazing!

My cerave retinol updates!
My cerave retinol updates!
Well guys if you’ve been following my journey this is the beginning of my third week on the CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum and with it I have some updates. The first is, my skin has gotten considerable worse in almost a week. The second picture shows my skin photo with a time stamp for the right side of my face. I hadn’t noticed how bad it had gotten but now that I have I’m really worried about whether this is a sign that this product isn’t for me or if this is almost the peak of my skin purging The second is, my skin has gotten to the point where my mom said she is going to look into me going to the dermatologist 😭 I have been wanting to go for a while so hopefully my insurance covers the visit and I can go to one. I don’t know what to expect if I do though, so I’m kinda anxious about it because I feel like the derm is gonna be like “yeah so you’ve been doing skincare completely wrong” but fingers crossed I can go to one The third is, my senior portraits are in a month so this whole thing is so ill timed and I’m hoping this purging ends before that or I have a solution to my skin problems 🙃🙃🙃 I’ve had a lot of what I’m thinking is purging and it’s really annoying because my acne has been scarring whether I pop my pimples or not, plus the pimples have become very stubborn in going away. I know the purging process takes patience but so far for me it’s being really frustrating, I’m just hoping and praying the serum is going to do what it claims

It was such a hard time. The first photo is also a lot better compared to how my face was before. I didn’t even click any bare face photos as it was so bad, I would avoid looking myself in the mirror and meeting peoples. I never thought acne could literally mess your life up. Most importantly besides skin care products, I changed my diet as well.

my newest skincare purchases!
my newest skincare purchases!
throughout the past few weeks my acne has flared up so because of that I decided to try a couple new products. first- The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I have only been using this product for about a week and already am in love. For those of you who don’t know, niacinamide is an ingredient that brightens the skin and help balance oil production. I have definitely seen less oil on my face throughout the day and when using this product, it’s not like many other products I have tried for pores that immediately dry out my skin, this as well hydrates the skin. I would recommend this to anyone with oily to combo skin but I have seen it has been out of stock everywhere so as an alternative I would try the inkey list niacinamide serum. second- CLINIQUE - Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel I had originally tried a sample size of this months ago and loved it. It immediately helped bring out the white head in my pores and I had been waiting for the mini size to come in stock to order it. My product finally came in the mail today and staring at it I am not sure the tiny .5 fl oz bottle was worth 18 dollars. Yes, the product does what it’s supposed to do but it does just that and is not very impressive. I glanced at the ingredient list and realized the product does contain two ingredients I am NOT a fan of at all. The FIRST ingredient was denatured alcohol. Denatured alcohol is an ingredient that will strip your skin but can tend to be very stripping to your skin. The fourth ingredient is witch hazel which is very simaler to denatured alcohol and acts like am astringent by drying out your pimples or pores. I rated this product a 3/5 because it does what it is said to do but, also is not worth the price and I don’t like the ingredients other then salycic acid. third- KINSHIP - Naked Papaya Gentle Enzyme Face Cleanser For a long time I had been using a cleanser that was way two stripping for my skin so I decided to try a more hydrating cleanser. First off the bat, I noticed that it had a super strong papaya scent that was not from fragrance but from natural papaya. An ingredient that stood out to me was aloe to sooth the skin. This is also alcohol free and fragrance free. This product was super soft on the skin and felt nice but I have been using it for three weeks and have not seen any results. It cleans your skin and gets rid of dirt but, it hasn’t helped with my acne and pores at all. I will give you an update if I see any difference in results in these products but for now this is how I feel. Have you tried any of these? If so what were your thoughts?
