acne adult acne regime reviews cetaphil treatments introduction scars dark spots oily skin
I'm going to try to keep this short because when I read acne stories (or anything really!) I like when it gets straight to the nitty gritty. (but if you have any specific questions then feel free to ask)
 
So, I've had acne since  I was about 11/12. (I'm 20 now) so I basically haven't seen my skin clear for almost 10 years!! >.<
 
Although, since around end of 2013/start of 2014, my skin had started to clear up. I think this was a result of drinking more water, cleansing efficiently/regularly (cetaphil cleanser is legit the holy-grail product for this) and cutting down on face products; I got caught in the hype of all the skin products that promise to reudce oil/blackheads/scars/spots ect (as we do) and had no luck, if anything just got worse (as they do -_-) 
 
One thing I've always had a problem with is the scars left from when I've popped spots so I've been trying to find products for that and been unlucky so far.
Especially unlucky as my acne has started to come back. This may also be stress/hormonal induced but its still depressing nonetheless. I literally haven't left my house for like 3 weeks now...My forehead and cheeks are beginning to be covered in spots again I look almost as I did in secondary school *sigh*
 
But I'm on a mission to get my skin back on track -clear the acne AND (once and for all) my dark marks too
So I'll be documenting along what works, and what doesn't. 
 
Also, reviewing products I'm trying now and shitty ones from before just to warn anyone lol
OH AND, this also includes makeup that I've found good/bad for oily/acne prone skin
 
AND FINALLY, I haven't included pictures in this post. firstly because I have no pictures of my bare face from when my skin was tragic lol. And I hate my skin atmhttp:////dn4iqhjvtt39e.cloudfront.net/messageboard//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png so I don't want to take any photos. But I may force myself to take a photo just so when I have cleared up I can do a before and after...
