So recently I've been thinking about the history of my skin...It used to be flawless (15 and 16) and I remember my friends using acne scrubs and these fun masks and face washes. So I went out and bought some. I didn't really need it but, I did it anyway. I didn't have an initial breakout but, over the years I began to get more and more zits increasing in severity and I began to use more and more product. It got soo bad about a year and half ago, I had deep cysts that were scarring my face horribly. And i've been on Retin-a .1% for almost a year now! And I still don't have a single day of being clear. It has improved my skin atoooonn. I have a healthy diet and hardly eat diary. I exercise frequently. I don't have hormonal issues. I change my sheets often and am a very clean person. So I wonder what's the dealio? I'm a very healthy twenty year old shouldn't my body be able to fight it off? Also, it seems like as the centuries go on acne get's worse and worse and worse. Maybe, it's the fact that were told we neeeedd to wash off face twice daily because of the oil blah blah blah. we need to moisturize, anti aging creams sdjkfsjdlf. Am i the only one who is thinking about how long humans have been around and how for the majority of the time we didn't really use any of that..... sure sulfur was used and other things in history. But, for the most part it seems like acne was a rare thing.... SOOO that being said. I would love to hear from anybody and everybody regarding your opinions. I'm not claiming to have figured anything out but, It's just a thought I would like to share. To the people who have tried the caveman method did it work for you? how bad was your acne? Do you think I should ween myself off the retin-a or stop cold turkey or not at all?
