This may or may not be a lot to read but, here it goes...
Hello Acne.org community! I've actually been wandering around this site for a few months now but, I never actually felt up to creating an
account on here up until now. My name is Dylan and I live in the united states. I am 16, turning 17 in a few months. Some of my hobbies include: Gaming/Playing video games(Like every other teenager, ey?), and reading. I especially love reading books about war and I love war/action movies. I enjoy learning about history, especially if it has anything to do with World War 1/2. I have a small handful of friends at school and enjoy hanging out with them when my acne isn't too bad at the time. I'm an A/B student for the most part, hoping to get into the military after graduation. For the most part, I've always been a shy and quiet guy in school who tends to sit in the back of the classroom.
My acne was never too bad until I turned 16. Before, I only got a REALLY big zit once in awhile on my nose every 3-4 weeks and that's it. Now that I'm a sophomore, I have a fair amount of acne scars on both sides of my cheeks and although I didn't/don't grow zits too often, when I do get them, there usually really big. I grow them pretty much everywhere on my face except my forehead now.
I always make sure to avoid the primary causes for acne food wise(Chips and potato chips, chocolate, dairy, and soda). I drink about 4-5 bottles of water a day and eat healthy snacks every now and then(Grapes, apples, etc). I first got acne when I turned 12 and started 6th grade. Been basically fighting it ever since. I have both oily and sensitive skin.
The acne products(Or other things) that I am currently using are:
Alba Acnedote: Deep pore wash
Organic Raw Honey
Clean & Clear: Persa-Gel 10
Apple Cider Vinegar(Small Amounts)
I'll stop here so that I don't make the post too lengthy/too much to read. I hope that I can get to know some people on here and I will do the best I can to be active on the message boards !
