Acne that's lasted a year and won't go away. HELP!
Hey y'all!   I've been looking around this message board for the past half hour or so and I figured I would ask my own question, sorry if it's already been answered!   I'm 22 years old and up until about a year ago I had perfect skin, I had the occasional break out but that was mostly around my period. Now? My entire chin and both cheeks are full of blemishes, scars, white heads, it's ridiculous! I don't know what to do, I don't know if it's hormonal or just a circumstance of stress and poor diet.   I have combination skin (I think) sometimes it looks dry, other times it's like it's oozing oil (sorry!) and it's sensitive. I've tried Proactiv and it didn't work, I bought a Clarisonic brush but it didn't really help much. I don't know what works and what doesn't.   If you've been through this and you've found a miracle product (I know everything is not going to work for everybody) would you please share your tips and tricks? I've heard of washing your face with something like coconut oil but I'm on the fence about that, I feel like it would just break me out more.   Thank you!

Acne Scars
I am looking to get rid of or just help my scarring. I've researched a few products like Murads post acne lightening gel, PTR gentle complexion correction pads, and Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial but I would appreciate other opinions. It can be any type of product that has helped with your own spots.   My daily routine consists of: -washing face 2x daily with Cetaphil face wash -for a scrub I use st. Ives oatmeal scrub -murad hydrating toner -tarte maracuja oil -PTR Therapeutic Sulfur Masque Acne Treatment Masque

Skin Care & Makeup to match.
I have recently had to change my birth control that no longer offers me acne control. I have oily combination and sensitive skin, ALL the don't want's with skin. I was hoping for a foundation/concealer that mattifys but has good coverage. I'm also looking for one the brightens my face. Seems every time I look in the mirror after applying makeup my face is dull. I'm of with a tip to open my eyes up even to make my face look brighter. The second issue I'm looking to resolve is a skin care product that helps prevent acne and balances out my skin complexion and colour. I need a toner and a cleaners. Would prefer ones already prepared in wipes or pads. A good spot treatment would be good too , however I am allergic to salicylic acid.

Red, warm skin after washing? Need skincare suggestions.
So recently, in the past 4 months or so I have noticed that every once in a while (maybe once a week) after washing my face at night I get this very red warm flush across my face that starts at the top of my cheeks and goes down to my chin. It looks almost like I have a sunburn, and feels uncomfortable and warm. Last night was probably the worst I have ever got it. So I have decided I need to try a new cleanser, currently I am using neutrogena naturals purifying cleanser. So my question is I have acne prone skin, it's combination, and I usually am always breaking out around my chin and jawline, is there any good sensitive skin cleanser/products for sensitive/acne prone skin ? I prefer a paraben free product under $30... But I am open to all suggestions drugstore or high end.  Thank you for your time.

cyst that looks like a mole...
So, I had this "mole" that I thought was a real mole. Until, it started to grow on my face. I went to the Dr. and dermatologist and they claimed it was a cyst. I had already popped it by then.. I know, very bad of me. I thought it was a normal black head. They told me to leave it alone and it would go away. Thinking that it was already gone and scarring, I started to use Kate Somerville's Dscar. Seemed like a good thing to do at the time then it started to sting at the touch. I only used the Dscar on it about 3 times. I stopped applying anything on it, it's about a week since any product has touched it and it's more painful to the touch. So, it originally looked like a mole, I popped it, it turned into a little hole in my face, now the hole looks like it's closing and It looks as if it's forming as a pimple. I never felt anything like it before and it seems to be getting bigger. What should I do? Has anyone had experience with this? I'm planning on seeing my dermatologist in 2 weeks but I thought I would give BT a shot.

What to do when your face breaks out from a new product?
I tend to be prone to break outs, whether a new product is involved or not...but I was wondering if you all will immediately stop using the product at the sign of a break out and go back to the old one, or do you ride it out and see if it passes?

Hello there!   I had acne for almost 8 years and now I do not get that many acne but I have deep dark acne and small acne holes. What should I do to lighten those scars? Something I can do at home other than visiting a skin doctor as I do go for regular peels. Please help!

Long lasting lipstick
I need a 12 hour lipstick with an option in colors.  I love OCC, but by midday Jose color from dry lips ( I do exfoliate before apply).  I use a lipstick primer.  I have found certain shades of different brands. (US anarchy and Sephora long lasting in pink) can go 6-8 hours.  I want a fall lighter berry shade.  I was recommended Vat Von D , but am afraid of it being drying.  At night I use balm to help moisturizer.  Any suggestions?  I hate to buy different products and have to return stuff.

How do I know if my product was opened and used?
I just bought the too faced better than sex mascara from a sephora store today. it seemed untouched in the packaging. The thing is, I had gone to the counter with other products and asked the lady and the register if they had more of these mascaras in stock, because there were no more on the shelves. she disappeared and returned with the mascara. it took her a little while, i could be being paranoid. anyway, im assuming she took one out of the storage units they have under the display. when i came home and opened it, it felt really light. i'm wondering if i was given a mascara that was already used? perhaps even the sample mascara? i'm not sure. there was also a red mark (kind of looks like paint/marker) on it, that won't come off. but that might just be a manufacturing defect. also, the package on the outside seemed pretty sound though. i ripped the top flap when i tried to open it, cause it was hard to unbox. does anyone know if i should go and return it for a new one?

The Non Joys of Pregnancy.
   Its such a blessing to see that positive symbol on your test when you've been trying to conceive.  For weeks you glow - mostly due to "morning" (All-day) sickness.     Now with the lovely changes my skins seems to have jumped back to the land of a teenager. SPOTS everywhere. On my chest and face and gosh does it make you feel un attractive.    I had terrible acne in high school and happily in my early twenties this calmed down.   I tried using clean and clear which seemed to aggravate the situation to a while new level.   I don't enjoy caking on makeup but lately it helps me just get out the door - - Any suggestions on getting my skin back to some normality?

Clarisonic - Delicate or sensitive?
I started using my clarisonic a month ago with the sensitive brush head, once a night. I developed small pimples on my forehead and cheeks about two weeks into it. Now, I have weird bumps just about all over my face that are slightly itchy. They seem to be under the skin everywhere. It's very upsetting being that some people are getting improved texture from the clarisonic and mine is horrible. I switched to the delicate brush two days ago but it feels just as rough and I haven't noticed a difference? Do you think these bumps are from irritation? Has this happened to any of you? Do any of you use the delicate brush and has it made a difference? PLEASE HELP
