So I havent posted in forever, sorry I realized I was becoming obsessive over my acne and worrying so much about it that it was causing more stress and even more break outs! I still havent found a cure but I have found some things out. Maybe they can help you too
AS for drinks and food. Ugh! hardest part for me because I love soda and my sweets. As for the soda I try not to drink it at all anymore. If i do have a soda i make sure to drink double the water that day to help flush it out. I still have a dessert or sweets after i eat dinner but I grab the ones with the least amount of sugar! And try not to eat chocolate!!! Eating healthy does help me feel better and in a way I think it helps my face.
When I am done eating breakfast I take 50mg of chelated zinc and I take one after dinner as well. I've just recently started this with in the last two days and no new acne has been popping up. Yes an occassional white head but im clear of aything cystic or painful which Im very happy about. I was getting cystic acne and it was painful and hard to leave alone.
For a cleanser I'm only washing once a day in the shower in the morning. Im using cetaphil mild cleanser. I always make sure to put some in my hand before and wash my hands with it then i add more and apply to my face. After i'm out of the shower I pat dry and use aveeno daily moisturizer. This moisturizer never leaves my face feeling dry and helped put oils back in my face!
If anyone has some suggestions or ideas for me I would love to hear them. And if anyone has a question I'd love to answer it.
