texture help

Im struggling with lots of bumps & blackheads. I’m not sure how to get rid of them other than extractions but they always leave redness & scars. I have tried lots of BHAs products such as COSRX, Paula’s Choice or Benton but they didn’t really help and some of them break me out 😰

Hi dear ,thanks for sharing your concerns. What I would strongly recommend is incorporating Adapalene gel into your skincare routine as it is a third generation retinoid and it helps with building collagen and improves skin texture. Please give 3 months to see results 💕

Looking at your post and comments it seems that you are jumping between many products and there's too much going on. To ensure that you see the results of each product, you should try it for at least 1 month consistently and not to introduce more than one product at the time. If a certain product is making your condition worse, you won't be able to know which one if you keep changing your routine up. I would recommend exfoliating a couple of times a week with low concentration products (like one of the toners you've got). Make sure you double cleanse if you wear makeup or sunscreen and check all your products for commonly known irritants and comedogenic ingredients. Apply toner/moisturiser on damp skin after cleansing to lock in the moisture.

it looks like clogged pores, have you try to do double cleansing with micellar water ? I do sometimes have this kind of bumps and double cleanse with micellar water helps me a lot with it! I prefer to do double cleanse with micellar water since I have hormonal acne and easy get breakout when i use the balm/oil and stay away from alcohol & fragrance (these ingredients often sensitize skin) hope this tips help you! 🥰

What skincare products do you use? your skin looks like it's over exfoliated, but hearing your explanation isn't because of that. There must be other reasons that you are not aware of. Because I have an experience like this. When I use a cleanser that contains AHAs, I use it every day for several months. Then I added the ingredient retinoid product to my skincare routine. At first it just felt sore, after a while my skin textured like your skin. I think maybe you should investigate something like this. So try to check the ingredients of your skincare routine, maybe there are triggers for textured skin that you don't realize.
