Aargh.. I have one big zit that hurts when I touch it I. mostly touch it when I apply tea tree oil. I need to stop applying chemical peel on zits ... it makes it worse. I only apply chemical peeling once every 2-3 week. Now we have bed bugs because my stupid sister's ex bf brought them here a long time ago, so sometimes it is hard to tell if it is a bed bug bite or actual pimples. My skin is still very smooth which is good. My right side of the cheek looks great and the redness is all gone.. acne scars reduced greatly! but they're stilll noticeable. The left side is red.. probably bed bug bite along with one big pimple .
I used the AHA+ full strength last night and I have to say, this STUFF IS WIN! I woke up this morning with the smoothest skin I've ever seen. It's actually giving me better results than the chemical peels I was doing a while ago! And no peeling/burning or irritation at all. I've only used it 4-5 times so far and it's a BIG difference. I can't to see how my skin looks after a month or more of using it.
I'm so glad I started the regimen when I did. There's so much scarring and dark marks and it would have just gotten worse.
I also side cut my dreads! Cut off 3 dreads total so I have it super short on the sides and long dreads in the back. It makes me look a lot more tough/cool and less hippy/flower child (which I like). Having clear skin makes me feel confident enough to pull off really "different" hair. Plus cutting my hair on the sides was really symbolic for me... feel like I've kind of been hiding behind my long messy hair for a while now...
I'm just really happy. I hope things stay this good.
Nice! If your skin is very smooth, that's a good sign ! Maybe you're close to be done with acne. It is happening to me. My skin has been very smooth for months which I've been acne-free with occasional zits.. no biggie.
adult acne really sucks.. especially when you look around and everyone has clear skin, like its never even been an issue or something they had to deal with. i really thought i would have outgrown it by now. i had a period of a year of good skin, but now im having one of the worst breakouts ever, and its just on one side of my face. im so embarassed i cant be myself because of it
Sorry to hear I thought I was so close to outgrown acne, but I am still getting some zits. My skin is looks really nice though. I only have one active big pimple, but it bothers me because I keep getting one or two pimples every other week which means more acne scars. I am glad I haven't broke out badly. The last time it got worse, was like a year ago.. it was a nightmare.
