Happy almost 2013 everybody!
Hello there. This is my first time coming to these boards, and my first time with an account on acne.org. Granted, I've been watching, reading, and learning things from this site for years.
As proper introduction etiquette states, I'll discuss who I am and my condition.
First off, I'm 16 years old and a female. My name is Krysta, and I'm really pleased to meet you all! You all seem very sweet and informative, which is really helpful.
I've had facial acne for a few years now. It's not terrible, sure, but it's still there and extremely bothersome. My cheeks are normal and rarely dry, and I've yet to have a spot on them. The same can't be said for my forehead, nose, and chin. My chin was the first to breakout, much to my dismay. Then it traveled to my nose, and then resided on my forehead. It's terrible, and definitely injuring to my self-esteem.
I've tried at least a hundred products with little luck. My current regimen is to drink 12 glasses of water (which I have been doing for a year) a day, drink 3 cups of tea (green, ginger, and rooibos - again, I've been doing this for a year), wash twice a day with Neutrogena Acne-Prone Soap, and refrain from touching my face (though that is extremely difficult and I find myself doing it anyway).
This year for 2013, my only resolution is to get clear skin. I know it sounds crazy, but it'd be wonderful. I'm willing to try anything at this point, and I look forward to advice in the future/recommended products and such from this site.
Alright, keep warm you guys. Happy new year!
