#3368347 Looking At Your Skin Really Close

Posted by carambola on 22 July 2013 - 07:55 PM

I try not to because I have trouble leaving things alone, and that's how I used to end up squeezing everything and turning mere blackheads into large, painful zits.  I don't even turn the bathroom light on.

 

My skin has seemed to age very rapidly and obviously in the past couple of years, but people somehow occasionally still think I might be a minor (I'm 28), so that reminds me that others probably don't see everything I do.  I know I have some degree of acne scarring, too, but my mom has commented on how my skin "isn't even all scarred up."

For me, avoiding processed sugar and high glycemic foods seems to be the most important thing (although I made other changes, like eating lots of vegetables, quitting coffee, and lowering my omega-6:omega-3 ratio).  It took several months for my skin to really clear up.
