Perhaps some of you can give me some insight..
I am 19-years old and I've had acne since I was 14. At age 15 my acne got worse (I squeezed pimples and did everything I should not have done) and if my acne was mostly on forehead before then it spread all over my face at that time.
At age 17 I went to dermatologist again and my skin got better and better. My skin is still so much better than it used to be, red pimples visit me rarely, but I still have comedonal acne that doesn't want to go away. It really troubles me because I can't go off medication without those little comedones coming back and making trouble. Two days ago I went visiting my friend and I took everything but Differin and Dalacin T with me BUT I took care of my skin the best I could BUT the next morning my forehead was horrible. It is still bad but as soon as I got home I started to use my medication again.
Literally, I can't even relax from medication without those nasty comedones showing up.
I use moisturizer that contains AHA,
I exercise about 4 times a week,
have used: Differin, Dalacin, Duac, Skinoren, Retin A,
I avoid foods that contain gluten,
I don't eat chocolate and avoid other sweets.
I use cleanser to clean my skin (I do that twice a day),
I take omega-3 capsules,
I don't drink milk or eat other dairy products.
I consider myself pretty healthy, but my skin doesn't really agree with that.
