I have been away from home at college now for a little over two weeks. And guess what! My acne is almost completely gone*.

Here, there is minimal stress comparable to my home life: parents and siblings.

Now that I have only one main reason to even conceive stressing (studying), my skin has never looked better. And I can safely say in my post-Accutane state (with actives), that stress has clearly played as a leading factor in my acne.

So maybe try and de-stress yourself, and melt away to some good music, a relaxing voice, a massage, yoga class, stretching, a pleasing candle, or just pumping some endorphins at a comedy show or working out. Find out if stress is the thing keeping you down.


*I don't think it's the water here; it's hard water. Like at home.

i spoke too soon. I got some new razors, shaved the other day, and broke out in the areas which I shaved. No biggie.

I really spoke too soon. I am now using Tazorac, my acne is terrible. It's hormones and genetics.
