In Topic: Summer Challenge! Clear Skin For Back To School! (Hopefully!)

18 July 2013 - 11:28 AM

When I first came on here last year, I was convinced I was the youngest person on the site struggling with acne, lol. (i was 13, i am 14 now) so don't worry, you're not alone. 

I could go more in depth with my story, but basically after trying so many things and having horrible self-confidence for 3 years, I was done. I had enough. My medication that I was on cost WAY too much money and wasn't very effective, so I needed something else. I tried the acne.org Regimen on a whim, and I got what I wanted! Clear skin for the summer. It has been more than a year since I've been using acne.org products (I don't really follow the regimen exactly any more, once my skin was clear I experimented with ways to perfect it) I still break out sometimes, but my skin is so much better than it used to be.

 

THE TRICK TO SUCCESS: Stay determined, dedicated, and have faith! Never give up.

Your skin is looking great by the way! Good luck! 

 

ps. Remember, start slowly! A big mistake I made was using way too much bp way too fast. Be patient, and start VERY slowly. 


In Topic: ¿the Regimen And The Beach?

11 July 2013 - 02:00 PM

I normally would say go for it, but since you would just be starting your skin will be extra sensitive, and at the beach, that can be harmful - considering Benzoyl Peroxide makes your skin more susceptible to sunburn, the saltwater might be a little harsh and your skin probably will be flaky. 

 

I would wait until you get back, just so that way the regimen doesn't get in the way of you having a good time, because it can be a little hard to adjust to such a time consuming, dedicated routine when you're on vacation. 

 

I would go out and get a nice sunscreen to take with you, and if you get oily, some oil absorbing sheets. Also, a good moisturizer just so when you get out of the ocean your skin doesn't go crazy because it feels like it's being attacked, lol. 

Here's a list of sunscreens with safe ingredients: http://www.ewg.org/2...ort-sunscreens/

As for moisturizers, I recommend Cetaphil, CeraVe, Burt's Bees... Things of those nature. I wish you well on your vacation and embarkment of the regimen!

In Topic: Any Advice For Depression From Acne?

I am very sorry that you are experiencing this. Nobody deserves to. My advice is, focus on the positives. I know it's hard, but think. At least you have a boyfriend that loves you, most people can't say that. Things WILL get better. You have to keep searching for answers, and always remain optimistic and open to new possibilities. Stay strong, sweetie, I wish you the best on your journey to clear skin!

Acne SHOULD NEVER keep you from having fun. I can't imagine staying indoors or at home while your family is out having a good time could be very fun... Sweating can definitely cause breakouts, so can oiliness if you get oily you can get some oil blotting sheets. SPF and sunhats are everyone's best friend in the summer and I recommend them.
