The beginning 9-8-06
I just created a profile tonight to try and watch any progress with my face. I have been fighting Acne since I was 11. Many stages passed.. In the beginning I had many black heads, then around 16 had cystic acne which has caused the light scarring that I now have along my jawline. Now, it seems like my acne has become lighter but there are still issues, thus my acne is not yet gone regardless of my recovery so far.
Haha, as I said... I just noticed this site and decided to start an account, so if this is in the wrong area I apologize as I am completely lost So if I am in the wrong place, help me.. All I know, is that i finally found a place to upload pictures. I wouldn't be suprized if I couldn't find this entry haha
As of lately, I wash my face at night with Oil-free Neutrogena Acne Wash, and apply .05 Tazorac cream at night. So my journey begins with, keeping my hands off my face and trying out mousturizers, hoping to even out my skin tone. Once I have a strong hold on my acne I would like to consider a lazer surgery or peel to help lighten my scaring. Unfortunately with acne, my self esteem is rock bottom, and I would like to be able to soon feel confident in myself and not feel like everyone is looking at my acne, and not me.
Anybody suggest a good moisturizer? I also have large pores, as I took a closeup of my nose to see that I am constantly battling with blackheads, which doens't help my pores in the least.. Any tips???
Pictures were taken the night of September 8th, 2006. These are before a face wash, as I still have some makeup on. On occasion, tonight included, I wear Bare Minerals powder as it seems to not cause further problems and helps my skin even out.
Sorry for being so random, I am really excited to finally find a nice community where I can feel comfortable and know that I have help in this war with my skin. I will be updating within the next couple days as I will not be wearing makeup, and my blotchy skin will appear as well as a better look at my acne problem
