A Few Months Later...

It's been awhile since I logged into acne.org.... and I think my time away was really good for me. At first, I liked having access to a community of people who were going through the same issues as me. But then I found myself getting a leeeeetle obsessive about it- specifically, I would focus too much on what others were/weren't eating and micro analyze my...

In highly exciting news, I've been using my new prescriptions since last Thursday- Duac in the morning and every other night, retin A on the nights I don't use Duac. I've still been using Neutrogena Oil-Free for Combination Skin as my moisturizer, since it's the only "oil-free" stuff I have around the house at the moment. I...

Yesterday I finally, finally got things squared away with my health insurance. I'm covered through my mom and my husband is covered through his dad because we can't afford our own policy right now. (The cheapest one available to us through his medical school is $7,000/yr for the two of us. NOT HAPPENING on a nanny's salary!) The only problem is...

hello! I hope I haven't made a serious mistake in introducing TTO to my skincare regimen this soon... I had been using 10% BP as topical to combat the horrific breakouts on my temples/forehead/chin (basically everywhere haha. AWESOME).

It's been such a lovely fall weekend here. Honestly, I can't complain. My husband and I have been taking it easy. Lots of hot tea. A long walk to our favorite pizza/salad shop. Perfume shopping. I love spending time with him and literally cherish every moment now that he's in medical school!

On the skin front- it's pretty meh. My skin hasn't...

I normally take a multivitamin to supplement B-12 and iron. (I'm vegan and I'm also anemic.) Recently I've made sure to be extra diligent about it. I want to be at my best, inside and out! And I don't want any excuses for a breakout. ("oh, I didn't take my vitamin!" or whatever.) In addition to the vegan multi, I've added a vegan...

I've still been using Dr. Bronner's to wash morning/night, Neutrogena Oil Free for moisture, and 10% BP for spot treatment twice a day. There haven't been any huge improvements, except maybe that some of the spots on my cheek finally dried out and the parts of my face that don't have acne on them are really beautiful and glowy. Nothing has gotten...

I just want to take some time to talk about how acne has impacted my life.

feeling like you want to curl up in bed and not face the world

feeling ashamed

feeling like nobody will take you seriously because of your acne

feeling ugly

feeling jealous of those who have 'good skin'

feeling obsessed with finding...

introductions, regimen, diet

two years or so ago I began experiencing more severe acne than I had in my teenage years. before that, I'd have the odd blemish or two but never had to think very hard about what products I used on my skin. my skin today is the worst I have ever seen it and I now find myself o.b.s.e.s.s.i.n.g. over every little thing I do, wondering if...
