Then I started working after college and it got worse again. Went back to derm, and was able to get it more manageable. Maintained that for maybe a year or so... and it was off and on again. Now, it is probably at it's worse. I get breakouts on my chin, cheeks and sides of the face. I consider myself to have moderate acne with a lot of redness, which makes it look worse. I have tried everything (except accutane and i really don't want to). I have started to get deeper acne in spots that I never broke out in before. When one spot clears, another pops up right next to it, of course I am left with a dark spot. I do everything right when it comes to cleansing my face and treating my acne. So it has to be on the inside for me.
I have always eaten whatever I wanted, until recently in the past year or so, I have become more health conscious. So I have done some research about things I should cut out of my diet in order to improve my face and most are things I need to cut out anyways! I eat a lot of carbs, although I try to stick with whole wheat, but I know I need to cut those out all together. Also, sugar and processed foods are hard for me. My skin went crazy again over the holidays, and I am sure it was from my bad eating habits. So what I have noticed is that everything I have tried worked for a little while, but it always came back. So I am making the effort to get my nutrition in order and make notes of the changes in my skin. I really hope it helps.
I drink a lot of water, workout, rarely drink alcohol, and I take a multivitamin and biotin. Overall, I am healthy. Any advice on things i can do to clear my acne??
It is very difficult for me to post these pictures...I do have makeup on, so it looks much worse without. Alot of the dark posts are covered. You can see my skin just looks irritated. But those are the areas that I break out in. I want smooth skin so bad!
