Hi all, i was busy in my 12 board exams n that’s why i was not in contact with our community. But i am religiously reading all posts on acnemantra. After going through all posts i designed my own regimen, the best thing is,my friends complimented on my clearing skin,thanks to AM. My server to moderate acne reduced considerably,but i still get very tiny whiteheads which r clearly visible bcoz of my dark skin tone, plz i want all valuable suggestions from our community members n of course AM! My regimen: morning,wash face with cetaphil cleanser n evening wash with saslic ds n i use glyco A cream twice a week at night, that’s enough, no acne cream, no scrub or face pack..this regimen helped me a lot. But i still want some suggestions for small whiteheads. Thank u so much!
Hiya Romi, it’s wonderful that you’ve cleared up your skin. I’ve noticed that in some people, salicylic acid based treatments can give the tiny whiteheads you describe. I’m one of those people who can’t use Saslic because of this. I had tried it and got the same result as you are seeing now. So perhaps try using Cetaphil in the evening as well since you are currently not using any moisturizer or sunscreen, so this cleanser should be enough for the evening too.
If that doesn’t help, suspect Glyco A. It’s been working well for people here, but the cream base may still clog pores. So avoid Saslic for a whole week and then Glyco A for the week after that and see if that makes a difference. For now, try this, otherwise we can think about it more.
Hi AM thanx, i m using saslic n glyco bcoz i m also facing the problem of dead skin cell which is the main cause of my acne. But as u said i will cut down saslic facewash to find out the culprit n then glyco. Again thank u so much.
Hiya Romi, you will be cutting them out only on a temporary basis. If the whiteheads problem subsides, then you can add replacement exfoliating products instead of using Saslic / Glyco A.
Hi AM, as per your advise,i cut off saslic from 5 days,then quantity of tiny whiteheads r reduced,m also not using glyco. But i feel that all whiteheads r not vanished every morning i wake up with at least 3 or 4 small whiteheads. I know these r not so irritating but i want the skin like my many other friends who has clear skin n hardly get acne. N i also have a doubt, i feel that my skin is dehydrated but there is always some oil on my face,why?plz explain me. Sorry for asking so many questions. Thank u so much.
