❓WHAT ARE SEBACEOUS FILAMENTS? ❓
There are these little dots in the pores around your nose that are hard, sometimes pop out of your skin, and they always reappear. But they aren’t blackheads, because they aren’t black on top. But these annoying little plugs are the predecessors to blackheads, if left long enough to oxidize. So what is it then? These guys are called sebaceous filaments and they are a normal and healthy (if slightly unsightly) part of skin! These filaments are thin, hair-like structures that line the inside of pores that help transport sebum to the skin’s surface. Sebum is the oil our skin produces that keeps it from drying out. Excessive sebum production and blockage causes most forms of acne. I made two little infographics to show an up close of these lil dudes. Filaments can harden, resulting in the little plugs What can I do to reduce them? The first thing we need to recognize is that you can’t get rid of them, as they are necessary to skin health. What we can do is reduce any excessive filaments, like the ones that start poking out of your skin. Key product ingredients include - Salicylic Acid: goes into pores and dissolves oil to reduce sebum productSEPHORA COLLECTION - Clear Skin Days by Clarifying Serum -Niacinamide: a form of vitamin B-3, anti-inflammatory and oil control properties product The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - Bentonite/Kaolin Clay: Absorbs excess oil from the skin, can be overdring though! ERNO LASZLO - Pore Cleansing Clay Mask - WITH CAUTION: Peel off masks/pore strips: using either of these too often can reduce skin elasticity and increase damage to your skin if used on active acne, wounds, or waxed hair. They can be quite helpful in removing the hardened part of sebaceous filaments, but that’s only the top of it. product ABSOLUTE - ABSOLUTE Charcoal Peel-Off Mask

the ONE thing that my dermatologist says...
... it to go to a dermatologist if you have skin problems! and BE PATIENT. ✨ A licensed professional like a dermatologist, esthetician, or aesthetician is the best person to go to if you’re stuggling with acne or skin problems. Don’t trust every brand that touts clear skin products, particularly Clean and Clear and St. Ives. boo them. ✨ Me? I am oily and acne prone, and used to have a ton of nodules and deep set blemishes. It has taken years to get to the skin i have now. i learned the hard way not to scrub and dry out my skin. ✨ the product in my picture is Adapalene 0.3% which is prescription only. You can buy a weaker version called DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel that does the same thing. Adapalene is a type of retinoid that encourages skin cell turnover, helping both scars and active scne. ✨ I also currently use SEPHORA COLLECTION - Clear Skin Days by Clarifying Serum Murad - Clarifying Cleanser
INVISISCAR VS. MASKNE SCARS
🌊 i tested Murad - Invisiscar Resurfacing Treatment so you can see the results! On week 4 of 8 now. i would recommend with some caveats. 🌊 this product, part of MURAD’s anti-acne treatment line both the ability to reduce scar size, discoloration, and texture in at least eight weeks. it is supposed to be used twice a day with an SPF. One thing I have found it can dry out your skin, so use in conjunction with a good moisturizer 🌊 I bought the standard size bottle, which is 0.5 ounces. And it is $35, so it’s not breaking the bank. The key ingredients are - Glucosamine and salicylic acid that exfoliate the skin in order to diminish scar texture and reduce new spots. - purified TECA centella asiatica also known as tiger grass. It helps repair the skin and Calm - hydroxytyrosol and pure vitamin C, antioxidants that help brighten your skin 🌊 The texture is really creamy and actually helps fill in pores so it’s good to use before applying make up. The skin feels really smooth after it. I use this product after serums 🌊 I use this product in tangent with my anti-acne serum from SephoraSEPHORA COLLECTION - Clear Skin Days by Clarifying Serum which has both salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid
