2014 Regimen Two years have passed since my last blog post. Crazy. I never come to this site anymore BUT that is not to say that I don't appreciate everything it offered when I was in need. I found comfort here when I was depressed and feeling isolated, as though I had no hope to cure my severe acne. This community rocks because at minimum you know you are not alone....

In the past I was truly ignorant in regards to taking care of my skin. I knew nothing about acne and what contributes to the problem. So, looking on the bright side, having acne forced me to learn how to care for my skin.
