    Does anyone have skin like me??

    Hello, I'm new to the board. I have olive colored skin, I get alot of bumps all over my face. They rarely ever turn into a full fledged pimple, and they are not red. My skin is a little dry after I wash it, but gets pretty oily throughout the day. I've been to the derm. and she put me Retin-A micro(helped a little), then later on Differin and Tazorac alternating nights(again helped a little). Most recently I just went to Differin every night. My skin is about the same, a little better, but still quite a few bumps. Is there anything that can make it more smooth and diminish the bumps? Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

    Hey! are they mini bumps? I used to get them - I had loooooads of tiny tiny bumps underneath the skin that never really went away. I have olive, fairly greasy skin.

    In the end I got rid of them by a) changing my pill cause I was on yasmin and I think it may have been causing it 2) staring a new skincare regime (Sage skincare, fab stuff) and 3) eating better, taking inositol, saw palmetto and zinc.

    It was a big change but it seems to have worked! I tried flax seed oil recently as well, and they made the bumps come back, as did the Paulas Choice products.

    It's all trial and error.
