My skin is breakjng out a lot lately

Recommended Posts

All have been good ..since 3 days now...i have the most terrible break out,since years.

I have seen this situation a long long time ago.

I dont know why this happens but maybe because we have 40 celsius here in Greece.

Its crazy.

I wear sunscreen and i wash my face after exersicing (which is reduced with this crazy summer)

Do you have any skincare home remedies to help the situation?

I have massive acne spots which they do hurt.

Have you ever break out because of the heat of the environment or its just me?

What is your diet like?  Are you eating a clean healthy diet and drinking atleast 8 cups of water a day?  That can really help.  Also are you washing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your face?  Have you tried new skincare or makeup products recently?  Can it be hormonal acne?  There are several things that it could be all with different answers.

Hello.

2 meals of my day is fruit.(monomeals)

1 meal is the lunch which is vegan made with no oils.

And the dinner isnt everyday the same.

I eat plenty of water as usual.

Ive tried a new cleansing foam which ia the apivita for normal skin...but it doea a pretty job as for cleaning my face.

I dont use moisturizer everyday because i have combo to oily skin.

I dont know what to do.

@Buff

What kind of exfoliators have you used? It could be that maybe you’re not using the right one? If you have sensitive skin then maybe try using Clear Essence Lemon Skin Smoothing Creme that one helps me even out my skin texture, so like after a while you know how your skin gets uneven? Well this helps even it out and it’s really good on my sensitive skin, and then to get rid of the spots left from my acne, I use Clear Essence Lemon Vanishing Creme, hope this helps!

What about gentle acne washes and scrubs?  I use a powder version that's all natural and it doesn't make my pores larger and it doesn't strip the oils away to the point of needing to add moisture to my skin every time.  I also have combo skin.  The current brand I use that has worked the best is Ora's Amazing Herbal and I use the one that has activated charcoal in it.

I use tea tree oil on pimple spots. It disinfects them and makes them mature faster. I would highly recommend it. I use The Body Shop's tea tree oil, but you can use any 100% pure tea tree oil you can find in your country.

At the moment I run out of thia but I only have the lotion.

It seems that only the green clay mask helped me.

I agree with the person who recommended Tea Tree Oil, that stuff is amazing!! Maybe you want to exfoliate a little more, like 3 times a week, but don't use harsh chemical, you can scrub with honey and crushed almonds, they're very soft on your skin.

Yeah, tea tree is amazing, but number one is changing your eating habits. Bad eating habits, and stress cause acne!

I think pumpkin mask will help you. It helped me a lot. I recently wrote about pumpkin face mask scrub.

Posting an infographic for the same. I hope this helps.

By the way the images in the infographic are taken by me. How are they  :D ?

Hello thanks a lot.

I will search to buy if it ships to my country.

 

I make a scrub using aloe vera gel (squeezed from a plant I have at home) and mix it with rice flour. You should be able to find lots of aloe vera plants in Greece and rice flour. Mix the 2 ingredients together and instead of using an electric cleansing brush perhaps use a sponge something similar to this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Donegal-Cleansing-Cellulose-Sponges-Make-up/dp/B00O8ZD3QG/ref=pd_sim_194_2/252-9800119-1248222?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=VW9DQN57JBPX9X10Z9KS this might be more gentle. I only scrub my face once a week. Make sure you wash the sponge thoroughly. I keep mine in a screw top jar until I next need to use it.

I live in Las Vegas, which is miserably hot! I get breakouts a lot if I'm outside sweating a lot. Your sunscreen could actually be causing your breakouts. Drink lots of water to help flush the toxins out. Try exfoliating your face and keeping it moisturized! What type of skin do you have? Essential oils can be a great way to clear up your complexion. Also, steam your face and get the dirt and oil out of your pores. Stress is also a factor in the appearance of your skin. I hope any of this helps. Good luck!

Protecting skin from sun damage is very important. Not taking proper sun protection may even cause to skin cancer. Wear proper sun protection clothing, sun hats, sunglasses available at many wholesale sunglasses stores and good sunscreens are very important.

Madam, 
You did not mention your age here. It might be because with age you are facing this problem.

Hormones are the chemical messenger for the breakouts. When hormones fluctuate they can give weight gain, depression and fatigue in addition to adult acne.

I stopped using store bought cleanser and acne treatments.

I started using 100% Chemical Free Skincare.

Using an Aloe leaf on my face also did the trick.

 

A lot of acne products have drying affects to skin because of the alcohol and astringent.

 

Drinking lots of water with lemon also works. Basially your eating habits and the amounts of water you drink have a alot to do with skin.

    • @ewoods So laser hair removal works best if the skin is light and the hair is dark. That's what makes me an ideal client. If your hair is lighter and your skin darker than mine, you'll have different results. The bad experience happened when I was tan. Yes, I stayed out of the sun for 4 weeks before the session, but I was still tan, even then. In fairness, the lady warned me. She said that the laser works by sensing the dark hair and zapping it. If your skin is too dark, it can confuse the laser and cause it to zap the skin instead. She said that she could do the session, but I have a higher risk of getting burned. I told her she could continue, thinking my tan wasn't so bad.  The thing with the laser is that it does hurt. So even though I was getting burned, I didn't know it because I thought it was just the normal lasering pain. It wasn't until I got home that I could see little dots of redness where the laser had burned me in my bikini area, where I was tan. Not like 3rd degree burn, but not just like a sunburn, either. Luckily, it was a surface burn so I was crazy about salve and healing ointments so it wouldn't scar. It didn't, thank God! I was crazy about ointments and stuff, though. Every AM and PM I'd slather it on and walk around naked till it soaked in a little haha.  In retrospect, I've learned not to have a tan whatsoever when lasering. Assuming you are a good candidate for laser, don't do it now, right before summer. Maybe do your first session in October/November and do it through till before next summer.    dollar amount and not necessarily because it's best for you. I went there for tattoo removal. (Tattoo is still there.) Also, they don't use the LightSheer laser machine which I know works for me. Hope this helps!

Assuming you are a good candidate for laser, don't do it now, right before summer. Maybe do your first session in October/November and do it through till before next summer.    And find a legit place. For the record, I'm not a fan of Laser Away. Their nurse isn't on site (she skypes you in the consult room...) and they're sales-driven. I feel like they'd recommend something for it's dollar amount and not necessarily because it's best for you. I went there for tattoo removal. (Tattoo is still there.)

    • Yes! I've had it done about 5 times. The results are GReAT...if you go to a legit place. I've had 4 good and 1 bad experience. Let me share...So the first 4 times were at a good place where I live here in San Diego. It wasn't the top most expensive place (stuff tends to be really expensive here in SD), but it was definitely better than the cheapcheapcheap places that make you wonder how they can get by. It was a cute boutique med spa. Anyway, so I did underarms and...wait for it...Brazilian. Yup. Yes. It hurts. After the first session, it was amazing how much less hair grew back. They say it can be up to 50% less, but I'll be conservative and say maybe 30%-40% less. You can definitely tell. Even after that first session, when I shaved my bikini line, I got so much less razor burn like I normally would. It was cool. So, I did 4 more sessions total. I have like 2-3 random hairs that grow in each armpit now and maybe a couple in my whole bikini line. My actual lady part still has hair, it's maybe like 75% gone. I know that with 3 more sessions or so It'll be gone, but I'm actually happy with having a little ground cover there so I'm going to leave it as is.  Now for the bad experience...
    • Hi @Lucky_13 ! I totally get your overwhelm! My cousin also has pretty bad rosacea, and she's lamented these same frustrations. I don't know her exact routine, but I do know that she is very very gentle with her skin. I'd reconsider scrubbing your face every day with a washcloth because I know the abrasiveness can simply worsen symptoms without making you actually any cleaner. Cream or foam cleansers are probably best! Secondly, I do know that my cousin has been happy with Jane Iredale powder and foundation. The foundation comes in a clear bottle and the product comes in beaded form that you pump out. The foundation beads are suspended in an aloe-based serum that cools, moisturizes, and calms red skin while the foundation does the covering up.  I don't think it's sold at Ulta though. I've always personally liked Clinique and I know they are known to be great for sensitive skin types, and they usually have a section in Ulta (and can try it on you or give you samples first). Maybe give that a shot! Best of luck! 
    • I like the Loreal Sulfate-Free line, EverStrong or EverPure. They have a more natural essential oil-type smell vs. the chemical artificial fragranced shampoos. They also leave my hair shiny, lightweight, and smooth. I switched to this shampoo when I learned that certain chemicals in shampoos and conditioners (especially conditioners!) could be causing my back and forehead breakouts. When I switched over almost 8 years ago, the breakouts subdued and I actually loved the effects on my hair. People compliment my hair's softness all the time, saying it feels like kid's hair. LOL.
