Post in Acne-Prone Skin

Closed Comedones (whiteheads)

I have some concern and maybe you ladies can help me out. I finally have gotten my acne under much needed control BUT those pesky little white bumps under my skin are still there! I've been battling closed white heads for the longest I can remember around my jawline and "bronzing line" contour area of my cheeks. I have combo skin whereas my t-zone is the most oily and the rest of my face is normal. I need a good life saving suggestion for an exfoliator and a mask that targets white heads. Although, I'm not sure if these two products target white heads but have seemed to work. They were both samples. The Exfolikate and Amore Pacific enzyme peel have both made the white heads surface, but I wasn't sure what to do after they surfaced. I wanted to refrain from picking at them, but...that didn't happen Smiley Sad I know. I know. I shouldn't pick my acne. Is there any kind of intensive spot treatment to put on the surfaced white heads that will make them dry out before I wake up the next morning or atleast minimize the appearance? I've been debating about getting the Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Masque as well. Any opinions on all this?

 

Skincare regimen:

1.) Murad Time Release Cleanser

2.) LUSH Tea Tree Water

3.) Clinique Dramatically Diff. Gel

Just recently, I also found out that Origins Charcoal mask does wonders. I've been meaning to try out this product for a loooong time, and finally just ordered it. I'm hoping it fixes this problem, too. Never got them before, and I had some pretty nasty acne before it cleared up. 

Re: Closed Comedones (whiteheads)

I finally tried out the Origins mask too! I love it and the fact that it is a great spot treatment as well if anything pops up unexpectedly. I hope it works out well for you! 

 

ps, love your username! I can't wait to see Rammstein live again, best concert ever!

Re: Closed Comedones (whiteheads)

Haha! Nice to see another Rammstein fan, oddly enough on Sephora! Smiley Happy  And same here. Can't wait for the next show!

Smiley Very Happy It is kind of not the typical place to find Rammstein fans, but we will look extra fantastic compared to the girls drowning in too much raccon-like eyeliner, haha. They just don't come to North America often enough, I think the next trip I take to Europe will have to include a Rammstein concert! 

Re: Closed Comedones (whiteheads)

Right?! I was having a good laugh about that as well, what are the friggin' odds of this happening? lol And yeah, I know what you mean. My hubby and I said the same about going to Europe for a show. It's been too long! 

Re: Closed Comedones (whiteheads)

That is a great mask for acne-prone skin no doubt, but I didn't find it much helpful with the most under laying white heads. I find that enzyme peels work best for me, just having a hard time getting rid of them once they surface. I've been recommended to try a sulfur treatment to dry out the surfaced ones today so we'll see how that goes.

Re: Closed Comedones (whiteheads)

I've been meaning to try Philosophy's enzyme peel mask (I forget exactly what it's called, but it comes in a coral-colored tube), since I've had such great progress with toning down my acne using the Philosophy line. So I hope it works! I'll have to give that a shot. Smiley Happy

Re: Closed Comedones (whiteheads)

I think this may be the one you're referring to

You should def. give an enzyme peel a try!

Re: Closed Comedones (whiteheads)

Yep! That's the one! I'm going to go ahead and look into it. I've heard really good things! Smiley Happy Which one are you planning on trying out?

Re: Closed Comedones (whiteheads)

Well, I love the Amore Pacific one because its effective over time and gentle, but the Exfolikate sample I recently got really was intensifying but I could tell it would be a little harsh for sensitive skin. Now I don't have super sensitive skin, so I went with the Exfolikate one since it worked best and made the white heads surface within minutes from using it. I have not heard of the Philosophy one, but that doesn't stop me from checking into it (researching) Smiley Very Happy
