Spots- they wont go away.


Ill be the first to admit, iv never had a great skincare routine. I usualy sleep in my makeup the take it off in the morning before applying more. I usually use a baby wipe or micellar water. Im skins always been quite good. Usualy only get break out before and around the time of the month.
This last couple months though iv had the same spots, in the same place just keeo popping up. I have spots and red bumps along my cheek bones, and one of them annoying under the skin ones thats a huge lump on my temple. They will not go away, iv tried, remiving make up begore bed, applying night cream and then cleaning again in the morning before make up, going makeup free for a few days, tea tree oil, exfoliating wirh lemon and sugar and just doing what i usualy do which is sleep in make up.
The cheekbone spots on one one side seem to be possibly scarring and a couple spots. Which is bizzar because i dont ususly ever touch or pick them.
Can anyone recomnd any budget products that will get rid of them please. If it makes any difference, im 28, my skin in dry mostly, with an oily nose.
Thanks in advance.

I have acne and am undergoing quite a severe treatment currently. The things I would avoid in what you're doing:

- do not sleep in make up (this would break me out immediately)
- remove with a proper cleanser and water (it doesn't have to be expensive, dr says soap although I'd find that too dry)
- I wouldn't use a night cream, if you're getting recurrent spots your skin is too oily in places and a night cream will exasperate that.

I wouldn't worry about blowing the budget on an expensive skincare routine, the important thing is that you're doing it. Ideally cleanse morning and night, although I'd be lying if I said I do that, but I absolutely do for taking make up off or if I've put moisturiser on that day. Once you've picked one try to stick with it for a while, I always break out when changing products.

Double cleanse- once to take off make up/dirt etc, twice to properly clean the skin.

I personally only moisturise when wearing make up as I don't usually have dry skin, I know they say too dry skin can cause the opposite but for me moisturiser was too much every day. La Roche Pusay effaclar duo is a nice light one.

Exfoliate with a gentle exfoliation a couple times a week, especially if you have dry skin.

If you're on the pill there are particular ones that can help with acne (but please be very careful if they suggest dianette).

If it doesn't improve, go to the dr, it's a medical condition and they can help, no need to suffer with it as long as I did!

I've had acne prone skin with oily and dry patches my whole life and then a few years ago I also developed rosacea. What I found really helped me was changing how I cleaned my face. I do the oil cleansing method. Basically, I use a warm wet hand towel on my face to steam open the pores (just wet it under the water in the shower and hold on my face for 10 seconds), then massage on a layer of an oil I mix up myself, leave it on for a few minutes, and then wipe off using the warm wet towel. It removes make up better than anything else I've done and my skin has been healthier and more balanced (fewer dry and oily patches) than ever. It's also completely cleared up the rosacea (which I was before this treating with 3 month courses of antibiotics that made me horribly nauseous!). It's also cheap. I mix up my own oil (it's a blend of 1/3 castor oil and 2/3 almond oil plus essential oils, I use several drops of lavender and several drops of tea tree oil per pot). I buy all the oils online in bulk, like 500 ml to 1 L at a time, and it probably costs me about £20 a year total. That's it. That's all I use. I do it once a day (before bed) and I don't do anything in the morning. If my skin gets dry, like in the winter sometimes, I just apply the same oil before bed and leave it on (after washing my face as usual with it). I never use soaps or toner or other mosturisers on my face. It's made such a difference.

Like pp said, i also don't cleanse in a morning, and this helps my skin. I've been trying different products for years and years trying to get rid of spots without disturbing my sensitive skin and hav now come to the conclusion less I see more. I actually get spots now if I DO wash my face so now I just use sensitive skin miscellar wipes. I always have to moisturise or I get spots. (Which I thought was what gave me spots as cream clogs pores etc) if I don't wear moisturiser I get spots. So basically I use only wipes and always moisturise only at night. I think washing my face even with the gentlest cleanser strips the natural oils too harshly which then makes my skin more oily hense more spots. It's taken me about 12 years to realise my skin just needed gentle care instead of harsh spot treatments (they just made it worse) good luck xx

I also do oil cleansing and can't recommend enough! I mix 1 quarter castor oil, 1 quarter avocado oil(for dry skin) and 1 half extra virgin olive oil. I've heard coconut oil is brilliant for some people but breaks out others so I didn't risk it

This is really interesting, I don't think it would have suited my skin previously, but I'm on roac****ane now and it has stripped my skin of all oils- literally flaking to the point I can't wear make up, I might give it a go!

I think I spelt it wrong so it made a rather naughty word come up in the middle of it that the website doesn't allow, it's called roaccutane, can you guess the naughty word haha?!

it was a typo which happened to be 'naughty' and that word is censored on BnB. Funny!
