I'm 31, and have been using Acnefree for ten years. I've had ups and downs with break outs but for awhile it seemed under control. I used to eat a lot of junk food and drinks a lot of juice. In the last couple years I've noticed that I can't get my skin as under control. I still use Acnefree, and because I thought diet would help...I drink a lot of water, cut out juice, milk, junk food for the most part. Yet I still get breakouts. I just don't see the point of continuing with Acnefree...doing the three freakin steps every morning of my life, and yet my skin still isn't under control. For some reason I break out a lot on the right side of my forehead more than any other place. I'll go a week with it being okay and then large pimples form again.
It seems like my forehead was better when I ate lots of junk food and milk. And I'm older now, and I feel like I'm right back to where I was when I was a teenager.
What I really want to do is slowly go off Acnefree, and do something simple. Use a face wash rather than layering my face with a ton of BP from something like Acnefree. But I'm really paranoid that I will break out so much. I'm tired of popping pimples all the time. Going to bed, waking up and not going a day without something to pop, yet I spend 20 minutes in the bathroom every morning with the stupid "three step" Acnefree BS that isn't even working anymore.
Any suggestions from people that have or had this situation? Did you go off it and start using just a cleanser with good results? Please help..I'm desperate here.
