fed up with acne

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hello, everybody!

Please, help me! I have a problem named acne. I'm nearly 25 and seems like it should be all over with spots and breakouts but no...I don't even remeber when those times were when I had nice, good looking skin. It's on my face (mainly, chin and cheeks). I've heard that if the skin on chin is affected, it means there may be issues with the reproductive system. I've made lots of tests and now can conclusively say that thanks god, I've got no ovary problems. I eat proper food (no McDonald's), try all types of cosmetics (brand by brand)..yet, no solution of my problem. I would be very grateful if any of you tried something and it helped. Don't please, recommend some of those Elemis or Dermalogic as I've tried it and unfortunately, the improvement had a temporary effect.

    Hey! Well, I'm a beautician myself. I used to work with CLEAR by Anna Lotan. Very effective in a case of acne prone skin. Reduces the excessive oiliness of the skin and clogging of pores without over drying the skin which is important and happens often. Personally, I like their masks like Provit or Astringent mud mask. My clients love Dry Touch (google it). It should be applied locally not on all the face skin. VERY effective in spot treatment: you apply it before going to sleep and in the morning the pimple is visibly smaller and less red. But if you say, it's on your chin and cheeks, then probably, you should check your blood. Those maybe problems with immunity system.

      So, I had a facial with AL. It's too early to speak about the results but the feelings were nice, anyway. What was interesting as that the beauticain didn't use steamer (i've had facials many times and every time the cosmetologist uses the steamer before to open up the pores and then does the cleansing). This time she used some gel instead. I was told that it's impossible to buy the cosmetics online, is it true? I'm asking you if you say that you've already worked with it. The second question is if I can make the exfoliation myself if I (for instance) buy that gel? Or it's not convenient to do it yourself? Thnks.

      Hey! Glad, you liked it. You can't buy it anywhere online - it's sure. My AL manager offers me clients like that: you call the company and they provide you the info on where to do the facial. Do you live in London? Home care products exist! But you order them from your cosmetologist. the Cold Hydration can be done by the specialist only, though some of the products that are used in the treatment, can be used at home.

    Hi, I suffered from acne for years and tried literally everythingggggg.. After a friends recomendation and without any hope i went on the Oxytetracycline 250mg tablets. It says to use 4 a day but I only used 2 a day - 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening. I also used the Duac Cream once in the evening. I wish i could show you the SIGNIFICANT difference. Ive just joined this today and im not sure if i can send you photos before and after. Ive been on the Oxytetracycline since 22 May 2014 and currently continue using them. I dont know if this will work for you but it's definetely worked for me. I PROMISE its all worth it. I hated my face and I wanted to stop using heavy coverage makeup as it made my acne worse. I currently use NO MAKE UP and in so proud to say this. I have overcome acne! It made my life miserably now im so happy. PS: try drink more water i know you see this everywhere but they all contributed and helped me fight acne. If you're wearing make up make sure you use a face wash to get rid of it all before you go sleep. Also make sure you change your pillow case every 2 days. And stop oily food & chocolate. It sounds like alot but believe me its all worth it. IM ACNE FREE!!!

    My acne was on my chin and cheeks onlyy too. Go to your GP And get them to prescribe you the tablets and cream. Start using the oxytetracycline tablets along with the Duac cream ONCE a day. I started to see difference after 5 weeks. I couldnt believe i didnt get any spots on my cheeks. I still have some acne scars from before but theyre just naturally fading away im letting them breathe. Hope you win it!
