@Emy10 hi, it's a good thing to see a nutritionist, as other people said already. I also suggest you to seek for emotional support, like a consuelor/psichologist because they can understand better the dynamics between mind and food. I'm reading that you got a diagnosing for BPD....you are very strong for sharing your situation with us, so that's a nice thing, talking with people if we see that we are struggling. There is a connection between your mental health and eating disorders/impulsive behaviour. People with BPD often struggle with highs and lows, and are linked to compulsions. That's why I suggest you to also see someone for your mental wellbeing. Stay strong, and remember that your not alone 🥰💖 feel free to reach out via DM any time.

Hi @hotcheetogurl ! Different types of acne may need different kinds of treatment. Rather than focusing on the brand, it's best to focus on ingredients and product types that can help treat acne. Here are 3 go-to ingredients that can be bought over-the-counter:SpoilerSalicylic acid (aka beta hydroxy acid or BHA) - gets down into your pores to degunk 'em, and removes dead skin cells from the surface of your face. Salicylic acid products are easy to find at your local drugstore. Consider CeraVe Acne Control Cleanser (contains 2% BHA) or the leave-on CeraVe Acne Control Gel. Note that the gel also contains AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), though I don't know what %. CeraVe claims this gel can be used up to 3 times a day, which sounds awfully excessive to me... applying AHAs that frequently can over-exfoliate skin, especially in addition to BHA. I recommend using the gel just 1-2 times a week (not twice on the same day) unless a doctor tells you otherwise. There are plenty of other BHA products on the market. My personal favorites are all made by Paula's Choice. Many people love Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant 4 oz/ 118 mL . Since my particular skin is very inflammation-prone, I use Paula's Choice CLEAR Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid 4 oz/ 118 mL instead. Both are leave-on products that work quite well. Azelaic acid - attacks acne-causing bacteria, treats post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (including dark marks left by acne), and has antioxidant properties. A doctor can prescribe azelaic acid at 15-20%. Or (if you're in the US) you can try a 10% over-the-counter option: of those, my fave is Paula's Choice 10% Azelaic Acid Booster 1 oz/ 30 mL . I've also used The Ordinary Azelaic Acid 10% Suspension Brightening Cream and Facetheory Lumizela A10 serum. Benzoyl peroxide - very effective against acne-causing bacteria. This is another ingredient you can find at the drugstore. The easiest product to find is probably PanOxyl cleanser: it comes in 4% and 10% strength, though the one you'll probably see in stores is 4%—and that's probably all you need. Higher strength isn't necessarily better, depending on your type of acne and your particular skin behavior/condition. Many people are sensitive to leave-on benzoyl peroxide, which is why a cleanser's a good option: it has contact with your skin for just a few minutes before it's rinsed off. If your skin's not sensitive to this ingredient, a good leave-on option is Paula's Choice CLEAR Daily Skin Clearing Treatment with 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide 2.25 oz/ 67 mL . Salicylic acid (aka beta hydroxy acid or BHA) - gets down into your pores to degunk 'em, and removes dead skin cells from the surface of your face. Salicylic acid products are easy to find at your local drugstore. Consider CeraVe Acne Control Cleanser (contains 2% BHA) or the leave-on CeraVe Acne Control Gel. Note that the gel also contains AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), though I don't know what %. CeraVe claims this gel can be used up to 3 times a day, which sounds awfully excessive to me... applying AHAs that frequently can over-exfoliate skin, especially in addition to BHA.

If your skin's not sensitive to this ingredient, a good leave-on option is . Have you already tried products that contain those ingredients? Since you're a teen, can your parent/guardian take you to see a board certified dermatologist or primary care doctor? I left the entire vitamin A family off my list of ingredients... vitamin A is retinoic acid (tretinoin), and there are several related ingredients like tazarotene, adapalene, retinaldehyde, and retinol. A doctor might prescribe tretinoin or tazarotene for acne, depending on what type you have and your skin condition. Or a doc could prescribe Rx-strength adapalene or another retinoid. You can also find over-the-counter adapalene at lower strength at the drugstore: the 2 most common are Differin Gel and La Roche-Posay Effaclar Adapalene Gel. Adapalene's often used to treat acne. You might wanna talk with a doc before trying it, though, because it comes with some irritating side effects. One more product you should definitely use if you don't already: broad spectrum sunscreen, at least SPF 30, applied to ALL skin exposed to sunlight (eyelids, ears, behind ears, nape of neck if exposed, hairline, wrists, ankles, feet, etc.), all year long, regardless of weather or season. UV rays can worsen acne, among other badness they can cause (like skin cancer). Do you already use sunscreen?

@Sunnysmom I'm sad but not surprised at all. As soon as they rebranded themselves as "clean" and discontinued nearly all their existing (at the time) products, I knew Bite wouldn't last long. Some of you know how strongly I feel about "clean beauty," and that I wasn't happy to see Bite force themselves so deep into that category with a rebrand that said little to nothing about vegan beauty (another aspect of the brand, though you wouldn't have known it based on much of their updated marketing). All their branding screamed "clean," making it very clear they'd decided to ride that marketing scam to scare customers out of their money. And welp, I guess it didn't work out the way Bite wanted. Doesn't matter how "clean" (or vegan, for that matter) your product is if it's subpar, especially compared to the old products you discontinued. Heck, even going the "clean" route, they might've had better success if they'd kept existing products and did a gradual cutover to new products. But the way they rebranded felt like an identity crisis. If I recall correctly, they didn't have many products (excluding their Lip Labs) when they launched their rebrand... just a few matte lip crayons, I think, and their lip stain, in a very small and safe shade range. If an established LVMH/Kendo brand plans to drop all existing products, completely change their marketing direction, and launch a rebrand, it'd make sense if they'd wait until they have enough new products ready to replace more of the old products, and then launch. It'd make even more sense to do a gradual rollover: launch the new products alongside the old, and post a "product retiring on [date]" notice on old products' pages. 🤷‍♀️ Instead, it took them how long to finally launch a replacement of their most-loved product line (Amuse Bouche lipstick)? The shade range of the new Power Move lipstick disappointed those of us who knew the former Bite as "we're not afraid of 'unconventional' color. You want dinosaur kale colored lipstick? We got you!" Power Move's performance added insult to injury. I wish I'd returned mine, because I never even think of reaching for it. At least the labs are staying open, and I've read a couple reports of more locations coming. Hopefully they won't muck up the custom lipstick formula.
