what’s up welcome back to my oh my god, I’m
not on the floor or the bed so I’m gonna tell you all how I cleared up my cystic
acne if you don’t know I’ve had cystic acne since I get puberty since I was
like 13 and I know a lot of people had like a bump here or a bump there, your boy had like mountains you know they mean like I had like a speed bump or ten
like I had what I would describe as honestly disfiguring cystic acne you
know you don’t have to you have to believe me and I know I don’t have the
best like most flawless flaw free skin but compared to what my skin was before
which I’m going to show some pictures of what my skin looked like before I’m doing much much much much much much
much better I’ve never had a face where it was completely flat and I had no
cysts I would definitely advise drinking more water and not eating as many spicy
foods not eating dairy so I started working with this girl Samira and she
introduced me to this brand called Innisfree just because she had like free
samples from them she’s like I really like their stuff it’s cool and I have a
ton of free samples so I’ll give you some free samples little did I know that
was gonna be like a lifesaver um so she got me Innisfree products and samples
and I went on vacation to Florida and the only thing I could carry in my
little back pack were these like little sample skin care things and I had a
really bad pimple on my way to Florida and I started using it and my skin
cleared up completely during the week that I was in Florida and I was like
there’s something going on here so the product that like changed my skin 100%
is the Innisfree purifying facial cleanser with sea salt 30% normal to
oily skin and it looks like this it’s so cheap I think it’s $9.99 only the nessa
is this shipping is like ten thousand dollars no just kidding
the shipping is like ten dollars or something or like five dollars this
really did see my skin is completely changed my skin people have noticed in
real life it is bright in my skin because it’s clean it’s not dirty and
it’s made it’s if I have not had cystic acne since I have started using it and I
haven’t had like almost any pimples a few pebbles I have had I deserve maybe
like I slept in my makeup and like rub salt on my face and I’m like a pimple
but then it goes away completely the next day with this so it’s kind of like
uh what does the describe whipped cream yeah yeah it’s like a whipped texture
facial cleanser so I just wet my face I put this in my fingers and then I like
massage it in little circle shapes I don’t have any like tools like brushes
or spinning brush I know I’m scared of those I feel like
my skin is too sensitive and it would like I don’t know ask Asia Jackson I
feel like she knows what’s best with that but I feel like she said something
about like some kind of layer that you don’t want to destroy and I feel like
that destroys my layer I’ve also used the firming mask that they have and I’ve
also used the brightening mask and it’s yellow and it’s supposed to be like you
can use different colors like there’s purple green yellow blue and you can
just put multiple colors on your face to address different problem areas I’ve
only bought the yellow one because it’s for brightening and I have really bad
like hyperpigmentation and that’s the only thing I really care about which is
wrong that shouldn’t care about everything else but like I said I ain’t
Asia Jackson I don’t know. you have to have cleansed dry skin and then you put the mask on
and then it kind of hardens I guess they like dries out after 10 minutes or so
and then you wash it off and it’s like brightens your face over time yeah I
would say that my skin is really bright a lot brighter than it usually is what I
think it’s really bright and light in the winter so so surprised another one
that I swear by I was recommended to everybody on tumblr by Arabelle Sicardi
and they said Dr. G’s brightening peeling gel is good I like this because I feel
like this always helps me with cystic acne like when I did used to get cysts
this would help because it would like attack the sister without enslaving it
like I would never be more inflamed after using this but I would like get
the dead skin off from around the cyst like if it was gonna come to a head or
if it wasn’t it would still always help and then just generally using this on my
face every day or not every day every other day or like every three days or so
I don’t know it just feels like my skin is keeping cleaner the brightening
peeling gel is not like a gel like you would think of it kind of feels like
wadded up spitty paper I know that’s like gross but it’s fine and then you
put it on your face in the shower it’s really nice to put it on in the shower
such hogs of dead skin my god or whatever it’s
knock you are like I cannot believe humans walk around like this on a daily
basis without doing it when you start using this you’re gonna be like I can
never not use it another thing that has been killing cysts and pimples is Glossier
solution I cannot use this on a regular basis it looks like I’m used up
a lot maybe this was for the campaign but I can’t use this on a regular basis
because it actually breaks me out because it’s that powerful but if I do
feel like a bum performing that might turn into a cyst
when I put this on it it does always kill it the only problem is if I put it
on I have to pump it onto the little pads that they sent me put it on the
pimple alone and that’s it and then it kills it or else if I like trying to be
like well I’m gonna do like put it all over my face then I’ll get like tiny
little pimples and I don’t get pimples I only gets this you know what I mean so
I’ll get like little Whitehead pimples that like I can scratch off if I put it
on my entire face but if I just attack a pimple with it it kills the pimples and
this is just like it says salicylic acid AHA 10% AHA BHA and
salicylic acid acne treatment and yeah once a day after cleansing you put
it on a cotton pad and put it on your pimples or whatever I don’t do it on my
entire face it doesn’t prevent pimples for me on my entire face but it does
kill cysts or things that might turn into cysts if I just spot treat them
that’s the word and I know so much about skin care spot treat
as far as like wearing makeup as you all know it usually I was gonna say I wear
makeup every day no I don’t. I usually don’t wear makeup to work honestly I
might wear like mascara but I don’t wear a lot of makeup to work so I use Burt’s
Bees I’ll cleanse my face in the shower right and then I’ll put on out on makeup
I want to make sure that everything is out of my skin so I’ll use Burt’s Bees
facial cleansing towelettes for sensitive skin or if I went out drinking
that night I’m not maybe gonna do my full skincare routine even though you
should and I’ll use this and then I’ll use the exfoliating ones as well some
Burt’s Bees with peach and Willow mark and these are just like face wipe um
towelettes so yeah these have been helping as well keep my
clean and taken care of so yeah it I would I’m gonna kind of map out my weeks so
that you have a visual representation because I’m like also a visual learning
you know like we’re all in the same boat guys so every single day morning and
night I use the Innisfree purifying facial cleanser every two to three days
for the dr. Dee’s brightening and peeling gel every two to three days so I
don’t use this every day maybe you should but I feel like it was
too much for my skin when I use to every single day morning and night so this all
used maybe like morning and night once every three days the cleansing
towelettes I use every single time that I wear makeup
even if I’ve already cleansed my face in the shower I use these every time I wear
makeup so probably four times a week at least
I believe that’s everything I talked about so far and then my moisturizer is
just the glossier I’ll get to use the glossier purifier no glossier priming
moisturizer rich because it’s winter I’ll either use that or I use the glossier priming moisturizer I have been using glossier priming moisturizer for–
whenever Bailey sent it to me and my first glossier video that’s how long we’ve
been using it I cannot use any other primers or moisturizers they’re too
harsh on my skin I know a lot of people don’t like glossier and they feel like
it’s water in a bottle and that’s totally fine but if you’re someone who
gets cystic acne maybe you need water in a bottle like I really cannot do harsh
priming moisturizers it isn’t a matter of like the hygiene of like how I do my
makeup it’s honestly just like the way my skin is because this was happening
before I wore makeup and regardless of the brands that I used so yeah I hope
they’ll get gave you some insight on how I cleared up my cystic acne since the
acne is extremely painful I have watched a million in one videos on YouTube about
how to clear cystic acne and none of them work for me thank you all for
watching keep it progress today online sharing your thoughts and creativity I
love you all so much make sure to subscribe and like and
don’t ever leave me okay bye

  • My girl did a great video as alwaayyssss beguminaj loves u honeeeyyyyyyy

  • i haven't finished the vid yet but i just wanted to tell u i luv u

  • rian ur amazing

  • hi rian! theres actually a innisfree store in union square if you can get to it you never have to pay for shipping again!

  • I don’t have cystic acne but this was so informative and thx for sharing! Yayyy skin care! 🙂 I think I’ll try that peel mask would u say it helps with white heads and like clogged pores (is that the same thing lol skin care)??

  • RIAN…SIS…no spicy food. Now i love u to much to cancel u but damn girl…
    Love ur spirit, never change
    Btw, in another life, we totally made out!

  • You can get Innisfree stuffs cheaper at these Kbeauty websites, lol I know cuz my channel is kbeauty based :))
    🌷 (be sure to read how fast the shipping is for each product cuz one might be 24 hours and the other may be 12-21 days…yesstyle won't ship your order until everything in your order is available or in stock) yesstyle also has a wide variety of kbeauty
    🌷 (takes 2 weeks but has a very wide variety/like newly released in Korea and for face value)
    🌷 (stylekorean has the fasted shipping!!) but is a bit more expensive but they have THE BEST sales!!

  • also u should try out innisfree's foundation NOT the cushion that one is rlly bad but their foundation is bomb it's one of my favorites :))

  • ilu rian !!! but hfksksjd please tell me i misinterpreted what u said.. do u use makeup wipes after cleansing? i rlly rlly recommend doing makeup wipes before u actually wash ur face bc u dont wanna leave on like any residue from the wipes. ideally if u want to make sure all the makeup is gone nothing is gonna destroy makeup and dirt like using an oil cleanser <3 and if ur skin is sensitive try the etude house soon jung line its also very affordable k beauty!! theyre all fragrance free which can actually irritate ppls skin. also!!! if u want to get rid of acne marks pls pls pls wear sunscreen. otherwise using the acid toner from glossier will make u more sensitive in the sun! and cause more marks. anyway the acne struggle is Real i love watching skincare videos ty for posting this !!!

  • Did the new formula of the priming moisturizer affect your skin at all? I got a sample with one of my orders and loved it but then I bought the full bottle a year later and it broke me out 🙁

  • Love in is free products especially their face masks and their spf! 🦋

  • Rian i love you and your vids so much!! I really really recommend following LaBeautyologist and CaveofBeauty on twitter for all things skin related!! Two amazing Black women and they will get your skin right sis! trust me!!

  • I’m here for the the new set up! 🌸🌸🌸

  • she was probably talking about the moisture barrier. do i know what that is? no

  • I love your vids

  • You: “The shipping was really expensive”
    Me: “oh so like $40?”
    You: “It was like $10 or 5 dollars”
    Me: cries in Canadian

    I had a FedEx package the other day that was $27 shipping and $19 in import taxes. And it was coming from the U.S. That’s one country over, how????? A lot of places don’t have a min limit for international shipping, you’ll be charged their rate even if you spend $100 at the store.

  • My skin is already clear (I also used to have lots of acne) but I'm still watching this because you're that good

  • bet ill buy the cleaner i hate cystic acne and i will destroy her thank you so much

  • I definitely had cysts this size during and after my pregnancy. Tried everything. The only thing that finally took care of it was two rounds of Accutane. At that point, I didn't care if it knocked a few years off of my life, the acne was too painful, both emotionally and physically.

  • I feel you on the disfiguring acne part, and your feelings around your experience are valid, I also wanna let you know since you asked for comments in the video that I have seen and had worse acne than the pictures you showed. Stage 3/4 acne (can't remember now the past is a repressed blur) where literally my cheeks were completely covered in cystic acne and inflamed to the point where my entire jawline disappeared because my face was swollen, so much that it was puffing and sagging. SAGGING! The body is capable of doing a lot when you don't hormonally supplement for PCOS and instead take "natural supplements" :)) (this was before my diagnosis).
    anywho it is good to remember that even when people stare and treat you like you are a menace for being (shock, horror) uneasy on the eyes, it literally doesn't matter and at least you find out who your non-superficial friends are!! + there is so much to be said about how the most interesting faces are those with unconventional characteristics (and honestly in your pictures the acne didn't distract from your other bomb features!!! which I always feel towards other people but struggle with myself when I get acne)

  • has anyone else had poor experiences with priming moisturizer? I've tried it a few times but I always end up with irritated/bumpy skin :~( I've heard that you just need to persist through one week of using it and that goes away but? idk if this is True?? Any thoughts?? I really want to like it because the phase 1 pack is such a good deal and i would die for milky jelly cleanser+balmdotcom !!!

  • You really look like Mariam Musa ! So pretty ♥️

  • I love you sooo much Rian!! You really brightened my day, do thankful for your existence!!

  • haha, I have the same type of acne currently. Though it's gotten significantly better after two courses of accutane, at it's worse though it was 2-3x worse than the pictures you showed and I've had to have a doctor remove multiple cysts. Btw, drinking more water does absolutely nothing for your skin, that's just one of the many acne myths that you see online everywhere but isn't supported by any scientific evidence.

  • ive been off and on abt how i feel abt my cystic acne. i had smooth glowing perfect skin all thro high school and then got worse and worse acne the second i started college. and then i started T and was a dishwasher and just destroyed everything, moisture barrier, everything. but i go back and forth on it bc my mom had such bad acne growing up that she literally has raised finger width scars on her body from it. so i feel like i cant complain much. plus i keep feeling like it's stuff i can change, like once i move out of the city and eat better and get a skincare routine. i worry abt falling into the skincare industry too, like its so endless and i dont know how much of it is selling lifestyle. but i also get tired of feeling pain and greasy and dry and itchy. im gonna try innisfree tho

  • I think the no dairy thing is great advice. Miles Jai used to get bad cysts and then eventually found out it was a result of a dairy allergy.

  • I can’t say I have had bigger cysts but I have definitely had more dramatic coverage. I am still struggling so hard with my acne. It’s crazy because I’ve tried SO many different things over the past year and a half that I’ve had acne. (It only started when I quit my birth control so now I’m back on after a whole ass year). The best thing I ever did was give up. I wash my face once a day with dr bribers. I’m a lot happier now that I don’t spend every day of my life doing Youtube research on it. I only watched this video because it’s you. Other than that I avoid watching them. I’m just over it. I have also watched 1million and 1 videos and nothing works.

  • Rían ily I also follow @caveofbeauty and @labeautyologist on twitter and their both estheticians and they’re so smart and i love them also Veronica gorgeios on YouTube she’s also an estheticians she’s a good white I love her

  • i also have cystic acne and i've been looking for something for sO LONG and the glossier solution also breaks me out!!!!!! i am going to try this cleanser thank you so much

  • i had super similar cystic acne, but more concentrated coverage over my cheeks, chin and nose, sometimes my nose would look genuinely cartoon witchy and lumpy and ahh…dealing with that not only like dermatology-wise was one thing (going onto accutane was the only thing that helped me after years of trying different products (including innisfree which i always liked but unfortunately arent vegan :"( )and other medications), but fuck dealing with it mentally is horrible esp if u already live with a mood disorder or mental illness. the level of depersonalisation and detachment you feel from your appearance is wild and so horrible but its so important to try as hard as possible to remember that acne is so common and so normal and its totally okay and flat clear skin is just as much of a beauty myth as anything else.

  • Arabelle Sicardi also put me on the Dr. G back when they were really active on tumblr and it has been a NEED ever since. I itch if I don't have any readily available

  • Thank god, I love waking up to a new video

  • ok loved this love seeing your face hearing your voivce. and also can i just say like way 2 go with the content like give the people what they want!!! love you rian!!!

  • I am so grateful for this video ! Does anyone know how the Glossier AHA/BHA cleanser compares to the Murad AHA/BHA cleanser? I found that Murad's AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser to have benefited my skin more than any other product I was using at the time I had moderate/heavy cystic acne. Would love to know if the Glossier product would be a better or comparable alternative as its hard to get the Murad cleanser.

  • not the way I downed two water bottles after you said to keep yourself hydrated, ur power ur influence incredible

  • I agree a lot of people who don't know anything about skincare will scare other people off about watery/extremely light moisturizers but that's just bc their skin needs something thicker. My skin's feels too "thick" to absord thick creams. I recently found out with trial and error that those "shitty" moisturizers is what works best for me. I hope I can try that glossier one soon 🙂

  • hi i have dry skin, but i am watching this because ur cool

  • Thank you GIRLLLLL. I struggled with cystic acne before birth control, birth control made it turn into smaller more normal acne. It's so great. But maybe I will try these to make it go away quicker

  • drinking raw milk and eating raw liver really helped clear my skin.

  • Lmao I didn’t want to laugh but the slide show music … I love you so much
