Angry Queen Helene mask not helping :(

I purchased the Queen Helene mask a few weeks ago, and I use it often. Sometimes I put it on for 30 minutes, and sometimes I sleep with it on overnight (only applying it to needed spots). I have flesh colored bumps that you can see in certain angles of light, but not from a distant. I use proactiv facewash on a daily basis. Is there anything else that anyone can think of for me to try (to clear up my bumps... it isnt really acne, I guess they are whiteheads??).

Thanks a bunch

These small bumps are my problem also. The routine I have been using the last 6 weeks has my face about 95% clear except for these skin colored bumps. I have been using Plexion mask and they are slowly going away, but my derm has suggested glycolic acid which I am going to begin next week. She says it will help get rid of the bumps and also even out my skin tone (I still have some red marks left). I'll let you know if/how it works.

I assume you refer to a skin condition called Milia. Small skin bumps (usually on the forehead) which don't come to a head. They are a severe pain to get rid of. Sometimes you need to have them surgically removed. However, I've noticed that using friction (rubbing gently but enough to remove the dead skin on the surface), steam, and apple cider vinegar, milia can go away. It just takes a lot of effort. And it can come back too. That's the worst part. When I have some free time, I put moisturizer on my forehead, let it absorb, and then gently (with my fingers) rub in circular motions that will usually reduce the milia. The moisturizer keeps it from drying out and becoming irritated. This is basically exfoliation at its most simple. Then, at night, I steam my face with a hot wash cloth (though not hot enough to scald my hands) and follow it up with a cotton swab dipped in apple cider vinegar. A few days of this and my milia is virtually gone. I hope this helps!

Wow! Thanks for the replies. I have a face steamer, and I plan on trying the suggestions tomorrow! I don't care how much effort it takes. These bumps drive me nuts, and I am sooo self conscience about them. I'll try it and let you know how it goes. elsie9191 keep me posted also. THANKS
