mel1993- My Experience with Acne

A Decision I Never Thought I'd Make.

Posted by mel90, 29 August 2014 · 214 views

Hey everyone!

I have had BAD acne for almost 5 years. I am so terribly sick of it. In the beginning I genuinely thought I could go to the drugstore, find a magic potion and just be rid of the blemishes. I have come to realize that the very long isle FILLED with various brands of bullshit don't do anything if your acne is both hormonal and persistent. I h...

Hey everyone. its about a week before that special time of month and my face won't let me forget it. So I thought I would share a few pictures of what my skin looks like.

Posted by mel90, 01 July 2014 · 289 views

Do you ever feel like your part of a vicious cycle? Battling with hating your pimples, covering them, and then hating the new breakouts- I have fought this struggle for almost 5 years now. I don't like makeup. At first I did. I thought it would help me feel better. However, washing my face late at night and realizing the problems were still there, worse,...

The Sun- Acne Friend Or Foe?

Posted by mel90, 28 June 2014 · 171 views

Hey everyone!

I have had this obsession with avoiding the sun for the past 2 years. I wear huge hats, cover my face with the mirror thing in the car in the weirdest angles, and never swim. Anyways, I have noticed that my skin really didn't improve in these past two years. I just basically stayed whiter than my usual self and my pimples and scars actually...

Hey all!

Having PCOS has caused me to basically rarely have clear skin. I often go through endless cycles of breakouts. I have massive eruptions on my face just before that time of month (not just 1 or 2 small ones- like 6-7 large deep painful cystic bumps). After the time of month I heal and usually get less severe pimples on the way. Then it repeats!...
