thins about my Acne journey

Entries in this blog


I have suffered with acne since I was about 15 years old. I used make up to cover it up, and I wasn't really good in skincare. But after summer holiday this year, my acne became worser and worser. And I was very insecure about my appearance, I did not dare to look in other peoples eyes. At one point (when I was sixteen years old) me and my mum decided to go to the doctor. First she gave me benzoylperoxide and she didn't understand me. She began with saying: There are other people that have it to. That wasn't what I wanted to hear. Because I knew that, but I still felt insecure and though I was so ugly. The benzoylperoxide didn't help, and my acne still was worse. After four weeks I went back to the doctor, she said I can give you this pills. And she gave me doxycycline 50 mg. It helped the first two weeks, but after those weeks, my acne came back. And again I went back to the doctor, she gave me doxycycline 100 mg. And she said, if this isn't working I will send you to a dermatologist. My mum don't want to go to the dermatologist because he would give me more dangerous stuff. Now I have took in doxycycline for four weeks I think, and it works. I also bought the clinique 3-steps line with two anti-blemish solutions products. A cleansing bar, and a lotion. I have a normal moisturizer, because my skin would dry out if I had one from the anti blemish line. My acne is less worse, and I don't have redness on my skin. (only at the places where my spots are). I recommend these products :))). (But I get very tired from the doxycycline pill, and sometimes I get headache).

I am emotional still not secure, but more than I was :)

I hope you also will find products that will help you! Maybe these products will help you :)
