Updated Skincare after 2 and a half years

Acne is still a struggle but my skin is basically clear and I'm using products I trust. I have really oily acne prone skin so treating the acne is a balancing act between drying acne products and hydrating products. Also, I want my routine to be as simple as possible. Cerave is the best brand for acne prone skin and I trust all of their products. Even though I have oily skin, I use their gentle hydrating cleanser morning and night and use their night cream as a moisturizer. I use a benzoyl perox

Oops I did it again

Yes, thats right folks. I did it again. And by "it", i mean I picked. Never fails, once I have acheived good skin i always ruin it son by picking.   BUT, since my nails are basically non existent at this point, i didnt do much damage. And, since my skin was in such god condition it has really healed almost back to normal now. And I did get out a lot of stuff I have been eyeing up for a while. Which, by the way, thats something I dont get... You are aways told DONT PICK, never pick, it

The start of my roaccutane journey

I thought i would share my journey with how i got prescribed accutane, what it took to be referred to a dermotologist through the NHS and update on my journey throughout my 6 month course!   So i’ve struggled with acne since i was around 13 years old, through 13-17 it was never really proper acne i thought, just the normal few spots some people got as a teenager so it didn’t really bother me too much then because i just thought it will get better in a few years..which it didn’t. It act

TODAYS THE DAY

Ok this is huge. And I mean…HUGE.   I did it. I fucking did it.   Today I went to work… with NO. MAKEUP. ON. NONE. Not even one drop of makeup. Only my skincare and SPF. And not even tinted SPF either, regular old plain SPF. This has been my goal for YEARS and I’ve finally done it!!!!!!!!!!! And not just “getting away with it”… not just squeaking by without makeup on  - Actually feeling like my skin looks GOOD and glowing, and it does. Omg the feeling is great, to get up

Four Months off Pill

Hey guys   Just wanted to drop by with another update.  I have been off my birth control now for around four months.  This makes me a bit nervous as it usually takes about 3-6 months for my skin to react when coming off the pill, well in my previous experience anyway.   Nothing new to report at all really.  Apart from a potential 'big one' I had on my chin around November time, which made me think 'ok here we go'.  But it didn't come to anything and I haven't had another sinc

should i use salicylic acid?!

so i was washing my face with benzoyl peroxide 10% for a few months, and noticed in that time that it cleared up my skin in this first month, but after that i began to develop larger cystic acne while i was still using the product..... i dont really know why...  anyways i stopped using it altogether and have just been using witch hazel only on my skin for about a month now.  if u read my past two blog posts, i said that im going through a breakout, and i guess i have to use something t

this feels hopeless

i am just so tired.  of living. but i dont want to die, i just want to be happy.  but i dont know how much more of this i can take.  how much longer until these tears become faded memories and i would have completely moved on,  if i knew what i should do differently, if i knew why this keeps happening over and over, like a broken record for 10 months straight... do you know how it feels to have every waking moment, for 10 whole months, be about your acne? maybe

i never thought i'd be feeling this way again. i really dont know what the [censored] is going on with my body. i thought it was getting better and then just drops back down to the first flare up i had 10 months ago, which was so bad, and made me feel so [censored] disgusting.  this familiar feeling, this familiar sad, horrible, stone in my throat feeling, i never thought i would have to feel again.  wow, i am so freaking sad.  does anyone know any good products that hel

Products Used on Accutane

I got a couple dms on the products i used while on accutane. Here are the absolute lifesavers. Kept my skin and lips moisturized at all times without ever over drying. I used the cereve lotion on both my body and my face because it was thick and I needed that. However, post accutane I would not put that thick cereve lotion on my face. I got a thinner one to use. I never used any other acne treatment products or face masks in the chance of over drying my skin.

Month 6

Just finished my final month of accutane. I am very happy with the results. My derm prescribed me a topical retinal to keep my skin clear so updates to come on how my skin keeps up post treatment. My skin still has a strong red tint to it, but i'm hoping now it will go away. I would 100% recommend accutane to a friend, but i do have to say it was hard for a couple months. months of crying and staying in bed instead of going out w my friends. But now i go to class and go out with my friends witho

My Acne

So I've I had acne for 2 years now and its gotten to the point where I don't know what to do. I've done everything to try and clear my acne. First of all I have changed my diet I no longer eat Nuts, Soy, Gluten, Carbs, Sugar or fruits High in sugar. I also taken natural supplements such as curcumin, cod liver oil, zinc, green detox, collagen, etc. (all together I probably take 8-10 natural supplements). My breakfast consists of a kale smoothie and eggs whites. Topically I apply tretinoin cream a

Naturopathic Update

This last week and a half has been an uncomfortable time for me. My skin has broken out in a way that it hasn't for a long time. It has forced me to really face my insecurities and fears surrounding having acne. As a part of that process, i have decided to incorporate more holistic solutions to my spiro usage. The first thing i did was create a vision board. In order to get where you want to go, you have to have a map, right? Health is smack dab in the middle of my board and will include getting

2020 is the year

Ok so I said 2019 was gonna be the year I stop picking and get my skin ON TRACK. And i was bloody determined this time. Well, actually Ive said that for 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014.... you get my point. BUT I have made so much progress and learned so much this year that i really do feel confident to beat skin picking in 2020. I've done so many treatments this year as well, and found so many amazing products that I use every day now, I know for a fact that all i need to do now is stop picki
