Popped Pimple & Scarring, Help!
Fyi, this might be a little icky, so stop now if you don't want to be grossed out haha.  I'd had this little tiny clogged pore on my chin that had gotten bigger and redder over the past couple weeks.  I went to a dermatologist, and was told all they could do was a chemical peel, which wasn't an option since I don't have $1500 to throw around.  Anyway, around Wednesday/Thursday of this week the red spot turned into this enormous pimple with three whiteheads in it.  I tried to get an emergency derm appointment for Friday since the whitehead was so big and the area was sort of swollen and painful, but they couldn't fit me in.    I've been trying to treat it myself with Benzyol Peroxide and moisturizing the are with spot treatments of Thirsty Mud which has been helping a bit.  I've been being so gentle with my face (I never pick), since I knew that if the whitehead got bumped it could leave a scar.  Well I was babysitting my three year old cousin last night, and he was sitting on my lap watching a movie.  Like a typical child, he all of the sudden got all wriggly and head-butted me in the face, you guessed it, right on the pimple.  It popped and pus and blood came out, and it hurt soooo bad.    I've been putting Neosporin on it as well as continuing with the Benzyol Peroxide, but is there anything else I can do?  Any product recommendations to help it heal and reduce scarring?  It looks awful, and I'm so afraid I'm going to be left with a horrible scar since it got popped before it was ready.

acne scarring/hyperpigmentation product recommendations?
I was recommended Peter Thomas Roth's de-spot skin brightening corrector by a lady at sephora, but it is SO expensive ($90!) and i read reviews and it sounds like it's not worth it. i got a sample of caudalie's vinoperfect radiance serum about two weeks ago and i'm hoping that will work. i'm hoping to hear some stories from people with the same personal experience!   fyi, I have a VERY oily t zone, and a fair bit of acne on my forehead (it's mostly hormonal though - I usually get it when i'm stressed and it disappears almost instantly when I become relaxed…)

How long do you give a skincare system to work?
My skin and acne history:  Combination/leaning more towards oily skin. My forehead and nose get oilier than my chin, though. My cheeks are probably oilier than most people with combination skin, however they don't feel half as oily as my T-zone yet still get the most whiteheads! (In both quantity and in size) I already have noticeable icepick scars on both cheeks from when I had horrible acne at age 14-15 and tried drugstore products to Murad to topical creams (clindamycin and retoinoid creams) and finally doxycycline from the dermatologist. After I had to stop taking that, my skin stayed clear save for the ocassional pimple or two. I started taking birth control in May 2013, but stopped this past August. Current **bleep**storm:  Fast forward to my 20th birthday present: random breakout (have not changed a thing about my routine - which I should probably mention I have been and almost always use drugstore products, Clearasil face wash, Neutrogena toner and moisturizer, and was using 100% tea tree oil for spots but that had recently lost it's effectiveness on my skin) Then all of a sudden a random, really bad, angry red breakout that started about 3 weeks ago. Small, but very red pimples on both of my temples/hairline and large, painful pimples mostly on my right cheek. Had an under-the-skin-er on my chin and a lot of small whiteheads on my chin. I started using Michael Todd True Organics Acne/Oily skin regime on the 4th of this month and my skin has just started to clear up, however I have used KS Eradikate twice this week and have been drinking a lot more water. My hypochondriatic questions:   Number 1 suspicion on my breakout: happened right after the end of being 4 months birth control free. Maybe it took that long for my body to complete rid itself the false hormones from the BC and this is how my skin truly is? Number 2 suspicion is I used the charcoal mask (2 times) and kaolin clay mask (3 times) all in one week in a feeble attempt to attack my breakout, which I now know could have been the reason why it didn't make my face any clearer. (Something about how it can pull up all impurities and your face gets worse before it gets better?) then got a new breakout on my cheek a little over a week ago. I haven't used the mask or scrub in 6 days. Number 3 suspicion is I just haven't given the regime enough time to work yet.   I did get fed up after leaving enorgmous white heads alone with just cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizor  for awhile without seeing any improvement and I popped them last week (I know I shouldn't have urgh!) now I've been using Clinique's spot treatment (salicilyic acid) on all pimples and used Eradikate twice. The weird looking pimples on my forehead/hairline area have faded away, but the still red remains (one even is a flat bump) on my cheeks. I'm in fear or gaining fresh acne scars and want to know if I should keep giving this regime a chance to work..angry at myself for believing the hype of MTTO after realizing how much advertisement from youtubers and reviews they sponsor. Sorry for the lengthy post, you have a special place in my heart for actually reading all of it. Will probably post a picture for some advice about what kind of pimples I have (I have been reading the posts here and was happy to find most of you are more knowledgable than dermatologists I've been to!) Thank you!

Oily skin help!
I have super oily skin.  I have a good skin care routine, and I thought I had found my holy grail foundation - Hourglass Immaculate.  But I'm finding that it may not be the best one for me.  It clings to dry patches, and seems to emphasize fine lines (I'm 34).  The staying power is amazing, nothing else holds a candle to it.  I also feel like it's really hard to get a smooth looking finish...if I catch myself in the mirror, I feel like it looks patchy.  So I guess I'm looking for foundation suggestions for oily, mature skin.  I used to use Bare Minerals matte, but the older I get, I'm not liking it so much.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

recommendations on acne products
My normal routine( for both day and night ) :neutrogena oils free acne wash in pink grapefruit and then i moisturized with neutrogena's oils free moisture for combination skin. I've been using these products for a while now (around 1-2 yrs) but as of the end of summer 2014 I've been breaking out a lot. I've been breaking out all over my cheeks and jawline. I don't know if its time for me to switch products or if its the dramatic change in weather/sleeping patterns/stress all i know is that i don't like it and its causing me to have a low self esteem because i never in my life broke out so much before. below i attached a image incase it will help with finding a product( i apologize in advance for the disgusting image LOL) please note that I'm 18 college freshman on a budget so i'm looking for an inexpensive product that is effective

Acne Marks on my Face - Helpppppp
I am a 27 year old having issues wit Acne on my face all the time from the time I was a teenager. I never did really anything to control the problem and I do have marks on my cheeks probably because i pinched them.   After reading a lot in BT, I realized the need to invest in good skin care regime. I dont want to go to a dermatologist before I try something that works. I have breakouts all over my face but increases during periods. I dont use any tbc pills n no harmonal problems either.  Is there a way to reduce the marks on my face and also reduce occurences of acne in my face?   I can post a pic of me so you can help, thanks

large pores and acne problems... help?
I am searching for some help with my skincare routine.  I have large pores and acne prone skin, and would like some recommendations to help solve these problems.  I'm just going to go ahead and list as much detail to help:  I'm 32, and large pores run in my family.  My daily skincare routine: AM- wipe with washcloth (warm water only).  This is something I started a couple of months ago and it has helped with breakouts a good bit.  PM- Sephora makeup remover on eyes, Simple foaming face wash in the shower.  I use Simple gel moisturizer as I think I need it, but not every day.  If I need to spot treat I either use Neutrogena spot treatment or Mint Julep mask dabbed on acne spots.  My acne is hormonal and sometimes cystic, but never severe. My skin is also sensitive and does not care for a salicylic acid treatment at all.   Makeup- I use POREfessional primer (recent purchase that is NOT working).  This primer has not helped with my pores and seems today (day 3) that it is beginning to irritate my skin (slight pink color and tingly).  I use Bare Minerals matte powder foundation, concealer, and translucent powder.   Any suggestions from skincare to makeup would be greatly appreciated.  I am ready to be excited about my makeup and not frustrated!

Help finding moisturizer... oily/dry patches
Hi! So I am in urgent need of a new moisturizer!  Some info: I used to say that I just have very oily skin but I now have dry patches under my lips (and a little around) (I have been using Aveeno Clear Complexion and Aveeno Daily moisturizer but they may have been causing redness so I stopped them after a month or two.) I used a Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief sample and now around my lips and under my eyebrow bone are flaky. All of these stung or burned in some way when I was putting them on.   I wash my face twice a day with Aveeno Clear Complexion Face Wash and use Acanya in the morning and Atralin at night for my acne.    I don't know what to do, nothing I use seems to be okay for me.  Does anyone suggest anything?? A different face wash? The dermatologist said Aveeno was a good brand but I'm not sure if it's the best for me.    (I also usually wear Sephora 8 hr Wear Perfect Cover Concealor and their Baked Face Compact Powder)   Thank you so, so much!

Dealing with Oily Skin/Skincare Help
Hi all,   I just started using makeup about a year ago.I used Neutrogena Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer for a while. My skin for the most part, was a nice combo of normal and oily. I eat right, exercise regularly and took vitamins. I wash my face every night.   It wasn't until this past summer when I started breaking out more and getting oilier. S o I started using Clear & Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent like I should be, toning my face after every face wash. I also moved to NYC where there is so much air pollution (could that be something?) I also slacked on eating and exercising right, but I have that back together. At that point my acne got worse that I had to completely change my products.    I tried the Murad Acne & Aging Skin Solution Kit for a few weeks but just currently use the Clarifying Cleanser. Right now, I use Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer and bareMinerals Correcting Concealer. I read that I should use a primer so I settled for bareMinerals BB Primer-Cream, except that it made my skin extra oily and so I stopped using it. I also use Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer as a moisturizer and First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads every night.   My question is what skincare regimen can I adopt to combat my oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin? And which makeup products won't cause me to breakout? And am I using the right products? Any help would appreciated. Thanks!

Skincare while traveling
BT lovelies what do you do for your skin while you're traveling?   I was traveling recently and my lovely skin freaked out. I took my regular skincare stuff with me and followed my normal routine. I went from a warm climate (SoCal) to up north to the mountains near Seattle. My skin freaked out and broke out. Haven't had this bad of a break out in a LONG time. And then my skin dried up, painfully.   I'm thinking it might have been the climate change or the water. I know we can get dehydrated while flying so I drink lots of water before/during/after the flight as well as moisturize twice as much. But this time it just didn't help.   What do you guys do to help your skin cope with traveling? I'm going to be traveling again soon and I'd like to not have a skin freakout repeat.

What's the best gentle/natural skin cleanser?
Hey guys, so I'm trying to skip around a find the best soap/cleanser for my skin that is relatively affordable yet gentle for my combination skin. I don't like to target my skin problems (pimples, oiliness, dull/uneven texture) while washing my face, I consider that portion of my routine to be the middle-ground where I reset everything and let my skin breathe a little. I usually wash morning/night and every other day I use my Clarisonic to get my face really clean and then proceed to use my serums/oils/etc so they'll absorb better. I tried the seaberry soap from Fresh and didn't like it too much. I've just been using the Dove bar for the past few months but I just feel like it hasn't been cleaning as well as I want it to. Either that or it's time for a change up since I've been breaking out a little bit.    So what's everybody's holy grail face wash/soap that's close to what I'm looking for? Even if it's not close, I'm open to suggestions

First Aid Beauty Cleanser ph level
So I'm testing out cleansers and I read on FAB's website that their cleanser has a ph of 6.5, only slightly more acidic that your face. While your body may have a ph of 7, the skin mantle has an acidity level of what, 4.5-5.5? Lower than 6.5, anyway.   I'm really dithering about whether or not to even try this product. I mean, if they got the basic ph of the face wrong, what else is next? I have acne-prone skin and I have found that the best way to avoid breakouts is to really keep my skin acidic.   Does anyone else pay attention to the ph levels of products?
