Hi, this is my first post and I am very frustrated because I made a typo in my username. I'm stupid.

Anyway, I'm a teen, and I have mild acne. But it looks worse because I'm a compulsive picker. I have redness, scars, scabs, spots, peels, everything forehead and nose area looks terrible. Near my scalp is even worse, which in why I never want to wear my hair in a ponytail. I only use foundation when I go out, and I honestly know nothing about makeup. The foundation I use does nothing to hide my scars. I've tried few concealers but I always get confused. I may sound low, but I love when I wear makeup. I feel more confident, and prettier. So it's really hard when I glance at a mirror and see that my scars are so visible. Can you help me? If you use acne scars and use makeup, do you know a way to hide them good? What do you use and how? What brands? Thank you so much.

Also, if you don't mind..I have little bumps all over my face, which some of them get worse because I pick on them..What's the best over-the-counter acne treatment? I think I have sensitive skin, because my T-area is oily but rest aren't. Sometimes when I use something, my face gets extremely dry but my T-area looks oily, though it feels really dry. I am also very confused on what kind of lotion I should use. I can never find one that I like. Also, I don't use a cleanser...should I? Which is the best? I occasionally use masks and scrubs but that's it. I use overnight oxy treatment. I feel so bad about my face but I'm so confused..I don't know what I should do..I'm so glad I found this board because now I feel I can find some answers..Thank you for your help.
