About Me

I am a 21 year acne victim who feels like the only person in the world who will have acne in her 60's! Also a drummer for a band and a freelance illustrator smile.png

I have struggled with acne since I was 13. I have had moderate to severe acne. The first thing I started was Stridex pads which didn't do anything for me. I then moved to Proactive and have been using it ever since. My skin was tight, dry, dull, horribly flaky and had red marks mostly around my jawline and mouth.  I was scared to death to put anything on my face but Proactive (even though I still had pimples). Moisturizers were out of the question because I thought almost any lotion would break me out and I was scared to try. My face got less acne as time went on though. I now only struggle with acne around my jawline and mouth. so happy I don't get it on my forehead anymore! But the mouth and jawline acne is really frustrating me. This past year I have educated myself on acne WAY more and am finding gentler ways to heal my face. I know that moisturizers are most definitely  not a bad thing and I want to start moving away from this very drying proactive!! I also know that the type of acne I must have is adult hormonal acne. I have started to take omega-3 fish oil pills to help with hormones and am starting to be much gentler with my skin. My diet is VERY boring since I cut out dairy, fried foods,greasy foods, sugar, and most processed foods. I eat lots of veggies, fruits, whole grains, white meat and the only thing I drink is water. I also change my pillowcase very often. My face is not as dry as it used to be at all. I still have horrible bumpy acne around my jawline and mouth but I feel like I am on the right track. I am ready to start experimenting and very determined to rid my face of acne!
