I'm 25 years old and have lived with acne for many, many years.
It's horrendously exhausting, both mentally and physically. The only time I was free of it was during the time I was the contraceptive pill Yasmin, I had to come off of that because it was making my anxiety and depression worse though.
I haven't changed anything about my lifestyle and the last week has seen a massive outbreak on the right side of my face...it's really red and inflamed as you can see by the photo. Take note the left side of my face is pretty much clear, except for a few scars and some spots around my jawline.
Is it worth trying to cut out dairy? I only ever have it with cereal in the morning, a splash in my cup of tea and occasionally I have cheese. I very rarely have yogurt or butter.
I have just ordered some Manuka Honey online, high strength...very expensive so hoping it will work! Otherwise I'm back to the drawing board and thinking of going to my GP to get some DUAC gel as it seemed to work last time.
I wash my face daily with Eau Thermale Avene lotion...I use Neutrogena oil free moisturiser and when wearing makeup, I have an oil free foundation. I also change my pillow case regularly.
