I have these small bumps on my face that don't seem to be acne-related.
I usually don't care, but I've realized that most other people's faces are completely smooth...
plus i noticed more popping up...
does anybody else have these/know what they are/know how to get rid of them?

And yeah, sorry i'm fugly :< I tried my best to crop it a lot. -___-;
and sorry for big pictures *A*;;;

    Wow, I didn't expect such a quick reply 8);;
    I've had them for a long time @__@;; maybe at least 2 years? I didn't notice when they first popped up, but looking at photos from a few years ago, they're not there.
    I do exfoliate but somewhat irregularly... and I just started doing it pretty recently.

    exfoliate and put on masks.
    try to use AHA/BHA products because then those help shed your skin.
    SA should help also, use retinol based items :]

    they go away after a while "(they get infected and turn into pimples)
    i'd rather have them turn into pimples.

    dont worry, after mine turned into pimples and went away my skin is alot more even and smooth image just wait!

    Those are cyst, or a form of dermatitis.
    Your sebaceous gland is block by a layer of skin, no matter how much you try to squeeze it, it will not come out.
    Get a lancets image
    prick your cyst, create a canal so the sebum can come out. it's not acne bacteria, but it's clogged sebum. You need to get it out before it get inflame. It can remain dormant for 1-4 years. but more will pop up.

    Oh, don't worry I have the same thing as your's.
    Actually, to smooth out your skin so you can get rid of those nastay bump's,
    Is to just exfoliate, not to rough, not to hard, just gentle.
    And atleast steam your face twice a week, so your pore's can open up,
    And the bump's will try to minimize the size.

    Also, sorry, I really don't kno what these little bump's are.
    I just have them. ROTFL.

    IDOL

    I had those bumps on my forehead earlier this year.
    I was using the Olay Toner and then I stopped using it (because i ran out and was too lazy to buy more XD). I didn't use any kinds of toners for about 2 months, and the bumps eventually went away. I then started using the toner again this month and the bumps reappeared so I concluded that it was caused by the Olay toner. Now I've stopped using the Olay toner and switched over to the Clinque Cleansing Lotion #4 and my skin has been bump free ever since image

    Perhaps it's because of a product you're using?

    Those are milias like someone said, not cysts o_0. Cysts are big round things that are deep under your skin.
  • ♥oyen♥♥oyen♥ Sooper Dooper Posts: 821Member
    Those are millias.. I get them sometimes (dunno what causes it) too!

    What I do is I exfoliate and then put mask...
    You might not see the result afterwards, but I see them gone the morning after image
  • kyung mikyung mi ? ? Seoul, KoreaPosts: 103Member
    no, i have them too and its not millia

    im not sure what they are but sometimes i seem to "pop" it and some hard stubstance comes out. yes, nasty!
    whitehead? is that what it is?

    how do you get rid of whiteheads like that? i've tried exfoliating but it dosnt seem to get rid of them..
    sometimes when the bump feels "hard" i tend to "pop" the hard stuff out of the skin and it leaves a "hole" in the pore..

    hmm. but i've only worn makeup a few times in my life. o__o i guess it could be harsh face washes.

    But they don't go away after a few days/a week/etc... they're more like permanent fixtures XD; A little disgusting, I know, but... yeah, I'm pretty sure it's not just whiteheads.

    OMG i think i know what their are

    its called rock pimples in viet.
    basically theirs something hard-rock like in there and theirs skin covering it

    i had on right on my tear ducts:0
    but my sister took it out
    she use a needle and very very carefully stared making a hole then squeeze any liquid in there and made a hole big enough for it to come out
    yes it does hurt but its worth it because its kind of like a pre mature mole
    my aunt had it when she was younger and she just left it their
    now she has moles [the big kinds] under her eyebrows!
    after we got it out the place where it use to be had a lil skin sagging but now its okay:D it looks liek normal

    i would recommend you asking any adult who knows how to carefully taking it out
    or yooh can try it yoohr self but be VERY careful

    if yooh hvae anymore questions id be glad to help:D
