I need help *-*

I'm a guy and i have a rather oily skin. X_X had many break outs for the past 2 years though its substantially clearing out now with only few remaining zits that refuse to disappear D<

Thing is, my skin's rather uneven though. Looking at it, i realised i have many tiny little raised dots upon my skin. X_X any way to get rid of these?

Also, there's some discolouration of the skin due to break outs. Anyone has ideas on how to reduce these dark spots?

Help is very much appreciated!

Edit: Anyone can somewhat explain the steps to putting make up? XD Been reading stuff about make up for some time and sort of know the different functions of the different stuff used but I have no idea about the order of putting make up X_X again thanks in advance!

This has probably already been said, but a lot of people cake liquid foundation on and it looks.... well naff really. I use powder mineral foundation. It works so well, it's good for your skin so it doesn't matter if you accidently fordet to take it off (it actually says that on the packaging), and it looks really good. I have generally clear skin anyway, but it covers blemishes well. Even though it feels like you're putting a lot on sometimes, a lot of people say it doesn't look like you're actually wearing any foundation, but just have naturally clear skin.

Errr sorry for babbling. >_<'
And sorry if that didn't make sense.

What are some good ways to get rid of acne without having to buy products? Most of the products I buy worsen my skin or don't help at all. Is there any ways to get rid of acne without products or prescriptions?

Oh i know how you feel. DX I happen to be alergic to all those stuff. The stuff in the acne products is something im horridly allergic to... it sucks a LOT.

So what i do (which kills some of my acne) is not eat massive amounts of sugar and pocky, and wash my face a lot with good branded soap from stores. And every week i use a facial cleanser. It totally works for me. As for the times i have acne... well, thats usually after a pocky spree. XD

I am 22 years old and still have acne problems like someone in puberty does. I think I've tried everything on the market, but nothing helps 100% I do have some suggestions though...

Vitamin E oil is my savior. It helps heal any blemishes/scabs/scars very quickly. I usually apply it before bed because it is very greasy but it leaves your skin soft by the morning.
Clean and Clear Tinted Spot treatment. (I dont know if that is the actual name, i'm too lazy to look.) Another thing i apply before bed because it is smelly since it is sulfur based, unlike most products that are salicylic acid or benzol peroxide. It works well to shrink down and dry out those big pimples... you know the ones ^_^;;

Hope that helps! They are both pretty cheap too.

Fixing skin exex fine, but don't change your noise shape or anything XD

kweenofkorn: I use clean and clear as well, and I was wondering about Olay's microdermabrasion. XD but I don't have to anymore. Now I want to try it. It's a bit pricy though, do you have to pick up the whole kit, or can you just by parts and peices of it?
wow sorry for the late reply! o_O

there are only two parts to the microdermabraison and no you cant buy them separately. and it would be a bad idea to anyway because you need them both together for the product to work. you can get it at walmart for only 20$ and it will last you about 2 months if you only use it twice a week.

For getting rid of zits "naturally", all I can say is wash your face (with water I assume, since you said you wanted to avoid products), drink water, and keep your hands away from your face.

Now, I know pore minimuzer was talked about...I've heard that it plumps up your face, is that true?

Prefect skin

well if you are like me and have mixtured of skin problems, Like I have dry and oily skin, I only have a spot problem on my forehead, which is only around at some part of the year.But have alot of blackheads. You know that keeping your skin clear is a big problem, as one thing may work on one part of your skin and not the other. Plus my skin take alot of shit, Like I wear facepaint alot of cosplay and when I am at collage I get stuff on my face all the time, like paint, pens, and charcoal.

So these what I do to try and kept my skin clear

- Basic things like washing your face.

- also keep your hair clean, I know that it sound silly, but alots of grease for your hair can out on two your skin. If you use hairspary and gels, you really have to watch out for that.
I wash my hair everyday, Beileve I heard everyone tell me that it is bad for my hair. It isn't, my hair is great.

- watch what soap you use on your face, most soaps can dry your face out. You want one that is Ph safe.

- Face mask, I got one of these 2 in one ones, that is both a mask and a face wash. I use it about 1 or 2 times a week. and my blackheads, have got down soo much.

- cold water, OK I know that this is not always know as one. Ok after having a hot wash, all your pours in your skin will be open. If left open, dirt can get in and spots. So spash your face with cold water, (it is a omg shock) this closes all your pours and also push out most dirt out of your skin. (Also good for your hair if your do your hair).

- Eat rigth. Eating chocolate too much and fatty food will led to spots.

- photoshop, I do sometimes use photoshop too kill off the old spot that happens.

I didn't talk about make up, as I normally don't use make up, but I do know some stuff
- get rid of reddess with a yellow
- if you put a white or ligth eye shadow round your eyes, before your start doing your main make up on them, your eye will appear brigther.

Ok that it from me, hope it helps

Late answer, but: If your skin is really bad, go to a dermatologist!!!! It may save you a lot trouble. I had really bad acne and had to take antibiotics to get rid of it. It was gone in three weeks and never returned.
One little prescription. It's not that bad ;D

Go to your local vitamin store like Vitamin World or something like that and get the vitamin E pills with the oil inside of it and you prick the end of the pill and put the oil from the inside of the pill on your skin. Tastes REALLY nasty might I add. I've gotten it in my mouth and about died ^^; It's very greasy so do it before bed or right after you take a shower if you take a shower at night
