I just don't think my skin likes cerave products unfortunately :(, [–][deleted] 3 points4 points5 points 2 years ago (1 child), What product did you switch to for face wash when realizing it was clogging you up? I (litterally last night) found that the THIRD INGREDIENT in my daily BB cream (which I've been using more of lately) is extremely comedonic. Any tips? Harsh rubbing can irritate the skin and can aggravate your breakouts. Score . Chemical Peels (the VI Peel or any medium level peel is amazing at letting whiteheads come to a head because of it's unique blend of ingredients). OTC topical treatments are usually effective in treating and preventing closed comedones. I'm not sure how effective the urea can be in a wash off product but I still really like it for a cheap pick me up. They can appear on any part of your body including face, cheeks, forehead, chest, nose, etc. Once a week I take off from retinoids and use TO AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. [–]emmalibras 7 points8 points9 points 2 years ago (0 children). I've had CCs on my forehead for my whole adult life and have tried all the usual suggestions--AHA, BHA, retinol, loads of hydration, eliminating silicones, etc. I've really, really enjoyed the La Roche Posay gentle hydrating cleanser. Also anyone have any idea about Nivea Soft moisturizer with Jojoba oil? [–]face_steak21/ Combo/Asian 5 points6 points7 points 2 years ago* (5 children), May I ask what moisturizer you are using now? Differin 0.1% and tretinoin 0.02% worked equally well on my CCs, but I gt more irritation with Differin. I actually use Tret now, but I'd apply it in the same order: [–]Ohcaptain__mycaptain 1 point2 points3 points 2 years ago (1 child). I went to get a professional acne facial to get rid of the rest and my face is the clearest it's ever been. I started washing those things more often (at least once a week) and they went away! It's a bit weird when you think about it. But I do use cosrx rice blah blah mask twice a week when my skin feels dry. The Glow Tonic contains 5% glycolic acid, which is an aha! it sucks. It’s an oil-free formula, which is non comedogenic, meaning it won’t create comedones … am struggling to find a replacement for cerave, [–]kitti_mau 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (2 children). [–]lamaksha77 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (1 child). 4 points5 points6 points 2 years ago (6 children). Do this twice a wrek max and goodbye closed comedones. Closed comedones are a mild form of acne that form when sebum and dead skin cells build up and clog pores. [–]curious_oclock 1 point2 points3 points 2 years ago (1 child). By doing this, exfoliating acid may open up the blockage that’s caused by the layer of skin and allow sebum to freely flow out of the follicle. I'd hate just to switch to another one of the golden foaming cleansers just to have the same issue again. EDIT: IM DUMB AND FORGOT THE ABOVE COMMENT LMAO ignore my question about tret, [–]sofiacarolina 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (1 child). I’ve been playing with actives for a while :) I had an initial purge with the PC, but this reaction came later in the form of more clogs (that didn’t exist previously) and sudden blackheads. Pocket Derm (now called Curology) - totally worth it. That is my worst problem skincare-wise. [–]razzmaSensitive Skin 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children). I have seen a lot of people say Clinique breaks them out. Specifically, when do you apply Differin? Just comment with your entire routine (products, timing, everything) and explain your issues and there’s no doubt in my mind someone will be able to help you out. Three things helped me beat my closed comedones: Figured out dimethicone causes closed comedones for me, so I started reading ingredients and eliminated all 'cones. C. Be Gentle Don't try to rub in the moisturizer. yep, i get them even with Curology formula (with tretinoin at .09%), aczone, chemical exfoliation...that's how I knew they were hormonal.

And you completely cut BHA’s/AHA’s out? I live in the UK and I don’t have a dermatologist yet (requires a long wait referral from GP). God it’s expensive but it’s the only glycolic acid that doesn’t give me painful jaw cysts. Just chiming in with a different experience...it took me probably 4-5 months to really see a big difference.

Here is my very limited understanding of the issue: comedonal acne is not the same as inflammatory acne, but a lot of comedonal acne turns into inflammatory acne before it resolves/all acne starts out being comedonal. You want to have a cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen that do not break you out before you even begin to search for a treatment. I wash my face with sheseido ibuki gentle wash and use the Juno oil morning and night. Seemingly headless and unpoppable, closed comedones are white or skin-colored bumps that gradually build beneath the surface of the skin until they’re large enough to be visible in profile. What Are Comedones? But when they do surface on your skin, here’s what you can do to treat them: Use topical solutions such as benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or retinoids; AHA actually worked better for me than BHA - or maybe it was the combination? [–]glassarr0w 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children). Recently I've ran out of the acne.org BP and have been using this toner from Neutrogena with 2% salicylic acid and it's also been working quite well. Yeah it’s definitely frustrating because you think it’s not doing anything. That's really great to hear! I just have to be carful around my nose and corners of my eyes. Cyclopentasiloxane (this is in everything ), ethylhexyl palmitate, zinc oxide, isopropyl myristate. I started a spreadsheet documenting every product my skin loved and hated. My forehead was covered in horrifying painful zits. Please consult with a physician or other healthcare professional regarding any medical or health related diagnosis or treatment options. Sometimes I don't have acne, sometimes I do, and I've got some stubborn CCs that don't seem to want to go away. My sunscreen - La Roche Posay Toleraine Ultra fluide. Great way to try it out! TO Marine HA, NMF, & Squalene Oil One of the biggest fears girls and women have when buying moisturizer is the fear of greasiness and pore-clogging ingredients, but that’s not a problem with CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion. I love 2 minutes away from their parent company’s store which always has it in stock, if only I could get you some!! I also use Aczone in the morning which also helps them a lot. “Closed comedones are a form of acne that result when a pore becomes completely blocked with dead skin cells and excess oil,” says board-certified dermatologist and founder of 5th Avenue Aesthetics, Dr. Marie Hayag. Sometimes it takes 2-3 nights to fully get rid of the thing, but it’s definitely a good option! Anyway, I am currently completely rid of them. I can’t remember if you’ve tried azeliac acid? So I’ve been trying to build my moisture barrier back up before attempting GA again. Does anyone know if NYX total control foundation is bad? [–]tayyylooor 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (1 child). Benzoyl peroxide and/or salicylic acid do it for me. Knowing what caused them in the first place was key. I used it for a couple of weeks, built up to using it everyday and over exfoliated my cheeks and ended up with two angry red patches on my cheeks that were very dry so I stopped. But not touching my face does wonders to get rid of CCs. [SHELFIE] Tonight, I got these in the mail and finally admitted to being addicted to buying skincare products, especially with an extra backup. [–]millimally 2 points3 points4 points 2 years ago (0 children), Thanks so much for getting back to me! I have very sensitive skin and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (DDMG) is amazing, light but provides enough moisture. Have you tried the Hada Labo Premium or the Stratia Liquid Gold?it sounds like you need a buffer, I know I get really bad CC’s when I over exfoliate so maybe dial the exfoliation back a smidge? I've been using Stridex for two months and have seen progress with my pore appearance but I still have congestion. The wait is definitely worth it though! I tried for 3 months and it fucked. I know that like natural progesterone creams work really well for some people (was too afraid to use one personally even though I had bought it and everything), [–]i-am-multitudesmoisturize me 0 points1 point2 points 2 years ago (0 children).
