About Me

I'm new here Posted Image

A little bit about my acne struggle:

I started having bad breakouts ever since my second semester of my 10th grade year Posted Image I don't know why, but over the years I concluded that it was probably stress & hormones...I don't think hereditary because no one in my family has had acne problems!!! I thought it was going to be okay, cause clearly I had no experience in treating acne and I thought the breakouts were just going to go away on their own. I don't know what I was thinking. Since I saw no improvment I then started searching for products that would work..i tried neutrogena, clearasil, proactiv, and tons of other over the counter products..and yeah you can guess nothing worked for me. After that I kinda sorta gave up I didn't know what to do or what to try, cause I knew nothing was going to work. So I just started hiding it with makeup...and I was so dumb that I would sleep in it!!!!!! wtf i seriously didn't know you weren't supposed to sleep in makeup back then but now I clearly DO! lol. But anyways, so yeah it got worse, gahhh. After that I just started to feel very insecure about myself and I didn't want to go anywhere, and fell into somewhat a depression. I just thought I was going to have acne forever. I then started to do more research online, and realized that many "over the counter products" had harsh chemicals. After realizing that most actually do, I decided to turn to natural products. Nearly a year ago I started using avocado, honey, and oatmeal. I did notice a slight difference in the redness but not completely. I then changed up, and started using oatmeal, olive oil, and lemon verbena goats milk soap, and I started using that my second semester of senior yr. I stuck to that and to this day I still use along with a new product I discovered in august, which is the aztec healing clay! I still have really mild acne but it was gotten way better than what it had been back then. I feel like the healing clay is helping a lot and I love it thus far. So yeah...I've had acne for about three years Posted Image(( I've been thinking about the Regimen....

    I love Jesus, family, & makeup. Still on a journey to clear skin, after using the regimen for seven months and great results, I just want something with less chemicals and side effects.
