Tons of Blackheads, Cause of Acne

Back to these boards once again.. after leaving them for awhile. Anyhow - my acne has become a pure result of my tons and tons of blackheads. It's given that any single day I could count 200 black heads on my face. it's disgusting, and terrible. They are no longer in just my t-zone, they are every where.

I continue to pick at them because I want to get rid of them.. (squeeze them out) even though, I know for a fact that they will come back. Please, any suggestions for black heads would be great. Good exfoliators, face washes, food \diet solutions, peels that actually work.. I will appreciate any ideas, but one's in particular that have actually worked for YOU would be the best.

Please Please Please send me some feedback. I'm 16, and going through this awkward time.. I guess you could say I'm shouting for help!

-Ashley

Re: Tons of Blackheads, Cause of Acne

No I haven't.. Because my acne starts in the form of blackheads, I really am hoping I wouldn't have to take such an extreme measure of treatment.

Oh, by the way, these are some things I've been reading about that have worked for some lately..

-Green Cream
-St. Ives Apricot Scrub
-Stridex Benzoyl Peroxide Power Pads
-Epidermx Microdermabrasion Cream

Smile Re: Tons of Blackheads, Cause of Acne

ashley, have you had a facial? like anything else, the wrong thing will make it worse, but the right will work wonders. you need something that steams open your pores, and exfoliates. my esthetitian does one called a clay facial, it's awesome and doesn't break me out. maybe one with extraction would be good for you, but they can be expensive and the wrong type can break you out, so make sure you do your research first! good luck, ali

ps- i might also recommend a visit to a dermatologist, maybe something as simple as a nightly application of retin-a micro could be the key to your beautiful skin.

Re: Tons of Blackheads, Cause of Acne

That could def. help

I went to an "acne" facialist when I was in California.. I'm back in Colorado now, and can't afford it quite yet. I do know that it was amazing, even if it made my face red for the next 2 days. How much does it usually cost you?

Re: Tons of Blackheads, Cause of Acne

hi sweet pea you need to see a dermatologist you need a prescription for acne meds if you have so many black heads you need a topical that will prevent the formation of the back heads. You should try diffren gel. Its a lot less irratating then the retin-a
Also if you have medical insurance find a derm willing to do acne surgery basically a facial with no frills. Your derm will manuly sqeeze out the black heads from your pores this can be very helpful in conjunction with the diffren because once removed they will not return,
