LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU DON'T LIKE GROSS ACNE PICS!
I posted a couple of "after" pics a few days ago. Thank you to everybody for the nice comments. Someone wanted me to post before pictures....and my first thought was....ughh....NO FUCKING WAY! Hahaha. But I thought about it a bit more before I replied and you know what...if this gets you guys to do something about your own acne...then maybe I will. The pics aren't from when I started the regimen, but it will give you an idea at how bad my skin got. I was 21 i think. I'm 24 now.
These pictures are from 3 years ago before I went on antibiotics for a few months. My mom took these pictures to show my aunt who is a doctor how bad my skin had been getting. My acne was at my worst!!! My whole face was covered. With the antibiotics, my face totally cleared up, but most if it came back later after 10 months. I then got put on Diane 35 with is an oral contraceptive...and it definitely helped but basically my jaw and chin still had such a massive amount of acne that the BCP didn't help with. I also did lose a bit of weight because I was trying the whole healthier diet thing but that didn't really help much. Tretinoin was usually the only thing I used to combat the acne and it made the spots go away faster, but it never prevented them from coming. When I started the regimen (10 weeks ago), my jaw and chin still looked like the face in the before pictures, although my forehead wasn't as bad, it was still pretty much moderate to severe acne.
This is kinda embarrassing for me so no mean comments please. Hahaha. Be kind!
