Closed comedones 😣

Hi! I'm a teenager and after September I started getting many closed comedones :( This was when I started looking into the skincare community! My old routine was: - Sukin sensitive skin face wash - Kiehl's calendula toner - The body shop anti imperfection daily solution And that was it! No sunscreen or moisturiser 😂 Only after I started using the banana boat daily moisture sunscreen and the avene hydrance optimale light hydrating cream did I start getting them. I tried cutting out the avene which didn't do anything. Then I tried cutting out the banana boat which also didn't do anything :( I started trying to use more salicylic acid in the body shop tea tree anti imperfection night mask but nothing changed so then I tried using benzoyl peroxide which also didn't do anything and now I'm stuck with new acne scars and a bunch of CC's. I also tried using Cosrx aha and nothing changed. I'm scared to try retinoids since I feel like it's a big commitment and I'm not sure if I want to use it at a young age. Does anyone have any advice?

By the look of it, you seem to have very oily skin. You might want to try clay mask, there's really no harm with clay mask, and it would absorb the extra oil from your skin. I suppose you can also try my ultimate favourite Anua's toner, as it really helps to reduce the oil from my skin within a week of use! My whiteheads reduced significantly with that toner🤩 For my case, I tried benzoyl peroxide and tea tree and both didn't help too. You might want to also try using a face cleanser that can removes the sunscreen you applied. Also, I recommend niacinamide as it can fade away acne scars while reducing oil production from your skin.

No problem😉 What works for me might not work for you, but I definitely recommend that toner specifically! It is always a long journey to find the right products! Good luck💕

oh..my.. gosh!! I’ve had these my whole life and never knew they had an actual name! I’ve always called them oil pockets or clogged pocket 😂 my forehead gets them so bad, and the way they look under foundation bothered me so bad! I will attack every one I see with a tool because I can’t bare to look at them. (obviously don’t recommend, I know it’s a terrible thing to do but I can’t help it) I always thought I was alone in this struggle..

I know! I can't help but attack mine with a tool too :( Hopefully we'll both find a way to get rid of them!

You might want to use sunscreen that is water based instead.
