It's really getting me down! I have had acne for 7 years, and in that time I have changed so many things to make it go away. I have tried all the usual things for acne ie: Benzol Peroxide/ Accutane/ Anti-Biotics etc etc. About two years ago I gave up sugar, coffee and alcohol and I became a vegan. I had my vitamin levels tested by my GP and the tests showed that everything was fine. I eat so many vegetables, I eat brown and wholegrain food, drink so much green tea and water, I excersize and use a moisteriser with no harsh oils. I exfoliate (but not too much) I don't pick at my skin. I do everything right! I mean, it has gotten a hell of a lot better that it was, it used to be horrific and now it's moderate. Why am I still getting acne!!!?
Edit: I wash my face twice a day with a gentle cleanser, I moistorise with a fragrance free with no added oils. I am taking no medication and I'm on no birth control. In my experience, medication sorted out the problem for a while and the the problem came back with a vengence. I wake up, wash my face with a E45, moistorise with my fragrance free moistoriser, apply light make-up and in the evening I remove my make-up, wash my face and moistorise. i very occaisonally exfoliate with an asprin and honey mask. That's it.
