So, I've been lurking around on this site for years, and FINALLY decided to make an account and ask for your help!
My story (in a nutshell):
I'm 21 now, and have been dealing with acne for about 5-6 years now. Back in my teenage days, I had really bad acne. My mother would pick at it (I know, gross and wrong), and now i'm stuck with all of these acne scars/hyperpigmentation/facial redness/I don't really know what it is. I still get pimples regularly, but i'm far more concerned about the marks they've left and continue to make. I've tried many different things to help alleviate the marks:
- fade creams
- apple cider vinegar
- emu oil
- vitamin E
- cocoa butter
and so on, and so forth. Nothing seems to be working. I suppose the marks have improved slightly over the past 2-3 years, but i'm still in the same boat. I have very little confidence, and haven't been confident in years. This needs to change. There's a potential girlfriend in the picture now, and i'll be spending a few days with her in December. I would really like to see improvements come December.
I'd love to hear/read your input. Thanks for reading.
