Hello =P

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of acne do I have, because I have no idea what it is... Tried comparing them with other people's but I really ama not sure. They look like scars that don't go away though, and that one on the nose was rather recent (kind of, it's been a month or more even) and it won't go away or decrease in size :(

I've tried Clean & Clear Blackhead cleasing astrigent, earlier this year, but it worsened my skin condition I think. I also use skin hydrants, not sure if it makes any difference. I can't really tell if my skin is dry or not, it doesn't seem like it is, and I also don't think it's oily...

Anyways, can anyone tell me what it is, and any good treatment that I could take? Hopefully it's not too expensive.




EDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm 19 now, and male if you couldn't tell...

My skin was perfectly smooth until I was 17 ish or so... now it's horrible. :( Will those marks ever go away?

Hmm.. my skin sorta does that. It's smooth and clear but when I DO get a pimple, it stays FOREVER! I don't really know what to use for the red spots. I think Neutrogena have something that can fade it a little, try going to their website, I think its

To find out if your skin is dry or not  you should check how it feels a few hours after you wash it. If it feels dry and tight then you have dry skin. If if feels a little greasy or slick then you probably have greasy skin. Sometimes you can tell after you wash it. After I wash my face, the skin around my nose and cheeks feels alittle dry and tight. So I have combination skin.

I like to use Neutrogena's Anti Acne Cream Cleanser. The gel one was too drying for me. And its helped keep my skin clear. I hope I helped a little!

PROACTIVE! My skin used to be horrible too, but it works wonders. I wish more people knew about it. It really saves you all of the grief of waking up with a marred up face.

For red marks that wont go away try using castor oil.
