You might want to have a blood test done to see what's up with your hormones. As the previous user stated, accutane is a choice, but if your acne is caused by a sudden change in your hormones (which I believe it is), it most likely will come back.
You're beautiful girl!!! Don't let your acne keep you from going to school and experiancing life in general. I made that mistake in high school (when my acne was just as bad as yours or even worse) and I regret it very much. You need to be more positive than negative in this situation, I know it's hard, especially when you look in the mirror or go out and you see people with clear skin, but clear skin isn't everything. I think being social, keeping up your grades, enjoying life and being happy is much more important than your skin. Don't let your acne control you!!! Keep your head up! I'm sure your boyfriend doesn't care about your skin, if he does, then he's not the type of person you should be dating.
My regimen is as the following..it's very simple for me and easy:
CeraVe foaming facial cleanser
MUAC Radiance Peel
MUAC Mandelic/Salicylic Acid Peel
Acne.org AHA (I'm going to change this to Paula's Choice 8% AHA soon)
MUAC 45 SPF Oil Free Moisturiser or Neutrogena face sunscreen/moisturizer 35 SPF
I would just wash my face twice a day with the foaming cleanser.
Apply the Acne.org treatment and sometimes I would put the AHA 10 mins after. I personally don't like the Acne.org AHA because it balls up. I'm going to switch to the Paula's choice 8% and see how that works out for me.
Once I week I would either do the Radiance Peel (WHICH IS AMAZING WITH GETTING RID OF DARK/RED SPOTS!) or the Mandelic/Salycylic Peel (which if I had a small pimple coming, it would completely diminish it). I am about to try the Mandelic Acid toner, the 40% Mandelic Peel and the 50% Glycolic Peel I hope (not at the same time of course), to see if I can make my pores smaller and my scars less noticable. I wanted to try the dermaneedle, but I'm scared of it (since I have heard many horror stories on here or it making scars worse). Any recommendations are appreciated.
Maybe you should try the AHA provided by this website or go to makeupartistchoice and pick up the radience peel or the salicylic/mandelic acid peel. They always have a daily deal where you can get 15-25% off your purchase! I have a bunch of discoloration too..and I've been using these produts for about three weeks now and I see improvement.
I've been really stressed out a lot...broke out with two pimples on my forehead (a place I rarely break out) because of it. :/ Stll doing the same thing to my skin and added two more products to use once a week, replaced others, got rid of some.
Again, some more pimples...about two or three, but are already popped and are healing on their own. I just want to say that I love the BPO from acne.org, it's very nice, doesn't leave a white film and it's perfect for my sensitive skin. My skin is flaking where there are dark spots...Might most new pictures this weekend or next week.
