Background: I'm 14 and I've had bad skin for about 3 years, it worsened when I started using tap water to wash my face. my acne is light to moderate and I suffer from it mainly on the centre of my face, I get whiteheads and blackheads on my forehead and nose, I also get cystic acne on my chin.. I often pick at my skin which just makes it worse and harder to cover. I have oily skin which is either because of hormones, or from the products I have used in the past. My diet is okay ish, what I eat for lunch and tea is quite healthy, once a week I might have a takeaway which isn't good but at least it's not everyday. I consume a lot of sugary snacks but I'm trying to cut back for this regimen, the only sugary thing I've ate today is one cookie. My acne could just be hormonal but even if this doesn't work, it apparently improves your skin tone and texture.
I haven't washed my face since last night; I used a cleanser, toner and moisturiser. Today my skin feels and looks oily, the redness has gone down since I don't want to pick at it because of the oil, at the moment my skin isn't that bad as it normally is. I dabbed a bit of concealer on about 5 spots just because I had to go outside and I am incredibly self conscious about my skin. It's mostly been broken down by my face oils now anyway. I haven't noticed much of a change yet but I've heard around day 4 the oily-mess subsides, so we'll see. I start school again in two weeks so I really hope I get results and don't get too flakey. I'll keep updating
