But sometimes your makeup can lead to new breakouts, and you become trapped in a vicious cycle of wanting to hide your blemishes while the product you're using creates more of them.    Before you reach for the concealer, it's worth taking a moment to understand what's going on with you...

If you’re thinking about going on isotretinoin, the high-dose vitamin A pill that treats acne, you’ve probably already done some research. Before I started the medication—more widely known by the brand name Accutane, which is no longer produced—I scrolled through online forums, diligently reading first-hand accounts of the pros and cons of the drug.       Pros: It cures acne!

I am all but completely convinced that skin is not only sentient, it’s also spiteful. How else to explain the fact that I seem to always get a painful, deep, under-the-surface superlump the day before any event for which I would want to look my best or make a good impression — a date, a job interview, a performance (I’m a singer), etc.    It happened just this past weekend.

The brown pigment spots on your face are most likely solar lentigines. Also referred to as age spots, these skin lesions are a result of sun exposure. With age, the repeated exposure to ultraviolet rays can cause melanin, a compound responsible for pigmentation as well as protecting the skin, to cluster or clump together, forming an area of hyperpigmentation anywhere between 0.2 and 2 cm in size, explains the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology.    Normally, these brown pigment…
