THIS IS NOT ACNE! Have you experienced this?
For once in your life, you’ve probably experienced this weird feeling on your face! These small, red, bumps on your cheeks or forehead. You may think it’s a growing pimple. But it’s been a week or more and it’s still not gone! It’s never grown into that disgusting white, swollen volcano you call a pimple. Fear not! Your skin will get better because this is most likely a case of prickly heat rash. What is it? It’s a skin condition caused by blocked sweat ducts and trapped sweat beneath the skin. This is because of hot and humid weather. Symptoms -red tiny bumps -itchiness -prickly feeling *THIS IS SHORT TERM IT LASTS WITHIN DAYS TO WEEKS* I’m not saying you should stop exercising or not move at all! I’m saying you should always make sure you wipe that sweat away or take cool showers. I’m letting you know this because, I TOO, have experienced this recently. I thought it was my skin breaking out. But they never came to a pimple so I was scared my cheeks and forehead was going to be bumpy and feel like sandpaper forever. But I did my research and started paying more attention to what I do. Which came to realizing that after working out in the morning, I DON’T take a shower right away. I usually sit down and go through social media first. WORSE CHOICE POSSIBLE! So that ended up with all the sweat accumulated on my forehead to become into, yes, a heat rash. So I started a new routine, brought a towel to my daily workouts, and wiped them off every time I felt sweating a river. I made sure I DID NOT SKIP my skin care routine! MORNING AND EVENING! DID MY FACE MASKS! And I made sure my showers were JUST RIGHT, never too cold or too hot! The more you shower in hot temperature, the more it will worsen your skin and rash. If you take showers in hot temperatures, it will dry out your skin more!! And thankfully after around 2 and a half weeks, my face started feeling smooth again. I don’t see bumps anymore. What I’m trying to say is, don’t panic over a skin condition you encounter! Do your research, don’t skip your skin care, and sleep well! *The first 3 pictures are sample pictures of what a heat rash looks like* *I wish I had taken a photo when I had the rash! But my skin now is extremely clear ONCE MORE, so the last picture is my skin now after all the rash craziness* I hope this helps!

Almost Adult Acne Spurt
Throughout high school I had regular breakouts. Sometimes they would get a little more congested in certain areas but they were never this bad. By the time I reached 18 though, I broke out in horrible cystic acne that my friends and family thought must have been a rash being as it happened that quick. Seriously, overnight! And then it wouldnt go away. Topical creams were used, Minocycline and Doxycycline pills were taken, Accutane was doscussed but my skin wouldnt budge. And then I found a routine that really worked for me. (After of course swimming in the waters of Hawaii and begging the sea gods to clear my acne - I was desperate...) I began regular facials (I know its expensive, find a girl you trust its truly worth it in the end), Acne.org face cleanser and benzoyl peroxide treatment (2.5%), Vitamin E Oil, Vitamin C oil, a DIY toner of 2 parts Witchhazel 1 part Apple Cider Vinegar, and a Micellar water pre-cleanse. And these are the results, two-ish maybe three years in the making. I still have my little breakouts and obviously a lot of other things had to change (like eating habits & birth control dosages) but I really enjoy the little routine Ive built up and suggest making one of your own if you struggle with this kind of acne. Remember, everyone is different and change ALWAYS takes time <3
What are these! Tiny bumps that won’t pop!
I’ve always had these random bumps that appeared randomly on my face but recently they started appearing on my “contour” line and jaw line. I don’t wear makeup or anything like that but I don’t know what these are or how to get rid of them.
Maskne * the BEST way to treat it....
#maskne 😷 DEFINITION: ACNE from WEARING A MASK ....if you’re suffering from it, continue reading.... . WHY AM I BREAKING OUT? chaffing, irritation, and inflammation from the constant rubbing of the mask on your skin. It also creates a warm, dark, and damp environment that breeds bacteria and clogs pores, so the skin cannot breath and results in more breakouts. . 🚫 What NOT to do: Don’t exfoliate the irritated area Don’t use alcohol toners or acids Don’t use retin-A Don’t use harsh/drying/acne facewash Don’t cover with thick foundation Don’t pick or pop the pustules . ✅ What TO DO: DO use creamy non-foaming facewash DO apply a calming moisturizer DO apply aloe DO apply a calming facial mask DO skip foundation and powder DO drink LOT’s of water DO wear a cotton or moisture wicking fabric mask . When the skin is inflamed,irritated, and bumpy it needs calming ingredients and lots of water to naturally repair itself and 🌱 HEAL 🌱 If you over dry the skin or pimple, it can take longer to heal and scarring can occur. And you can induce more breakouts -> a viscous cycle. . You can also eat foods that will help promote clear and healthy skin, like fresh fruit and vegetables, healthy fats, and lean meats. Avoid foods that can contribute to more acne and inflammation such as dairy, sugar, gluten, and processed foods. . I personally struggled with adult acne when I turned 30 for 2yrs, first trying quick fixes through topical creams and professional treatment. But through research and self testing, I now know healthy and glowing skin starts with what you put INSIDE your body. And that is why I’ve been gluten and dairy free for 6yrs and have a handle on my acne prone skin since then. . Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have regarding this, as this is not the popular opinion to treat acne...but popular has never been the BEST WAY to address a skin concern, just the best MARKETED...🧐
Fungal Acne (malassezia folliculitis) cleared?
Nizoral- anti dandruff shampoo Day one-first picture Day two-Second picture Day three- third picture Day four- last picture After the first week, my fungal acne was completely cleared up. Obviously we are in quarantine and I was not able to visit a dermatologist. I recommend you watch Dr. Dray on YouTube to or Cassandra Bankson. Dr. Drag is a dermatologist and Cassandra is a specialized esthetician. They helped me learn what skin condition I had, what to stay away from, what caused and triggered the reaction.
