Hello! I saw a youtube video raving about acne.org and decided to give it a try!
I started 3 days ago and have some questions.
Im 19 years old and have had moderate to light acne since I was in 7th grade. Its mild compared to some, but bothersome to say the least. I break out the worst a week or a few days before my TOM and sometimes experience breakouts for 2 weeks after, then have a few days of clear skin, and the cycle repeats itself. I have lost 23 pounds in the last 3 months and eat a pretty balanced diet. It didn't change much of anything. Im so excited about this change in my body! But my acne holds me back from being fully confident in myself.
Products I use:
Neautragena ON the spot acne medication
Olay sensitive skin moisturizer
1.) I dislike the way my makeup looks over the BP. I use mineral makeup and it doesn't seem to blend in very well anymore, but rather sits on the surface. Is there anything I can do about this? Or will my skin learn to soak in the product over time?
2.) This goes with the first question, Will the regiment be just as effective using the BP at night only and use a larger amount since I don't like the way my makeup blends?
3.) When should you start using more BP? My face burns very badly after applying moisturizer so I know I am using to much for a beginner, but Im not sure when to bring up the dosage
4.) My acne seems to be hormonal. Would Accutane be a good option for me?
My experience so far:
It has cleared up my acne thats for sure! But the redness and tightness to my face looks awful. I know its to be expected since I have been using to much BP. I still have scaring from the old acne, but nothing that can't be covered with makeup. Luckily any acne scars fade completely from 1 to 3 weeks just depending on the severity of the pimple.
Note:** The picture I attached I was wearing makeup with as well. I cannot find a single picture that displays my acne as for what it truly is as I would never take any when I was breaking out, unless I was forced like this one, but of course I still attempted to hide it.
Thank you so much for taking time to read or reply.
Any thoughts or feedback would be much appreciated! <3
