Bloody Amazing Results!
Iâ€™ll give a bit of background so you guys know what my history is skin-wise: my skin was pretty much fine in my teens - had the occasional PMS-related breakout but nothing too crazy. All was well until, just a few months before my 21st birthday. Suddenly I went from breaking out a bit once a month to just constantly breaking out. At itâ€™s best my skin was spotty, full of tiny little bumps and slowly racking up a bunch of scars - it itâ€™s very worst you can add itchy, red and super sensitive to the list. Whiteheads all over the place, hormonal cystic acne along the jaw - the whole shebang.
Iâ€™ve tried all sorts; gone back and forth from the doctors with various prescriptions, BodyShop, Lush, tried going all natural; ACV both as a toner (which actually worked wonders until it mysteriously stopped working for me) and internally, sea salt, turmeric, witch hazel, evening primrose oil, starflower oil, zinc, tea tree oil, peppermint oil, steaming, african black soap, lots of water, green tea, limiting my dairy and sugar intake - to name just a few. Nothing made a dent.
A couple of weeks ago, after another flare up a I decided I was fed up with nothing changing and started researching the next thing to try...It lead me here. Iâ€™ve rambled enough so Iâ€™ll cut to the chase: Iâ€™m just shy into a month of using Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion and this is the best my skin has looked since my skin problems started two years ago. Having paired this with BP (as of last week), my skin is smooth, Iâ€™m not breaking out at all and my scars are already starting to fade. If youâ€™re reading this, you absolutely know how much it sucks to feel unconfident because of your skin. It is a HUGE deal for me to have not broken out for this long.
Just a heads up; for the first week or two, my skin did purge. It wasnâ€™t absolutely awful but be prepared for it - itâ€™s a necessary evil. Also, this stuff can be pretty heavy duty on sensitive skin (like mine) so you might have to play with building up a tolerance. I use twice a day but have had days when Iâ€™ve only used once or taken a break entirely. The only other side effect that Iâ€™ve experienced is two little dry patches, but they settled with a bit of gentle exfoliation over a couple of days. Overall, I couldnâ€™t recommend enough. Itâ€™s cheap and you have nothing to lose!
