Skin Update

I only have one skin, so I am going to do my best to take care of it. Now that I have a job I do not have to worry so much about not being able to afford what I need to stay healthy. I will also be able to pay for a doctor's appointment and prescription drugs, even though I want to try the natural route to see if that changes anything. It has been like three days and I have not had one new cyst form. The small ones I had have developed, so I just need to see if my skin will stay clear. I am stil

New Start

Okay, so I am very impatient when it comes to clearing my skin. Especially now, since I was clear for almost five years with only minor issues such as oiliness and clogged pores. I am trying a new regimen for my skin and I can say that the salcylic acid has made dramatic improvements on the clarity of my skin. My skin looks less blotchy overall, but I still get painful cysts. I have cut out all dairy for about a month, yet I still had some muffins (which I am pretty sure it had some form o

Face Update

Today is Saturday and I should be outside enjoying the summer heat or going out with a friend, but I much rather rant on how sensitive and dry my skin is getting. So, I have been on the acne.org bp for a long time and it worked. I stopped using it as consistent, added stress stress into the mixture and I got inflamed acne lesions once again. It took over 3 weeks for all of it to heal and my skin is still not perfect (especially now with all the scarring.) The only change I have made was tha

Day One Of Self-Acceptance

Earlier today I was contemplating life and I came to the realization that I need to accept myself for who I am and everything else about me, including my acne. I do not know if what got me thinking this way was spending two hours with my mom at the grocery store or just eating healthier and doing my best to stay positive and prevent stress. I think that make-up is a huge confidence boost for me and it will always be. I hate to admit it, but I relied on it too much in the past to the point that i

Another Day In The Life...

I am pleased to say that the cluster of cystic type of acne is completely gone from my left cheek, yet I have hyperpigmentation and scarring to take it's place. The one cyst on my left cheek has turned to 2.5 pimple type things, which is weird. Now, I have one new one in the middle of my forehead. This is also so weird. I am going to try a different product specifically designed to treat cystic acne, since bp obviously isn't cuting it. On the plus side I am learning french and I feel empo

Progress...

Today, I feel good. I do not know if it is because of all the vegetables and healthy protein, oils I ate or the long bike ride to the post office, but I feel good. I have to say that I am pleased that the cystic acne I had on my left cheek has drastically reduced. I no longer have huge bumps and the redness, tenderness has subsided. All that remains are the dark marks and a bit of scarring. Great... Anyway, I have just one new cystic type of pimple on that same left cheek and other zits seem to

Okay, I Have A Problem...

How am I supposed to let my skin heal and let all the benzoyl peroxide do it's job if I keep apply make-up on the daily? I have to cover up scars and cysts, and each time I do this I seem to get a new outbreak or a new one wants to start. I wonder if it is the make-up. I use almay skin clearing concealer and Covergirl shine control foundation. I apply it with my fingers, so maybe that is the problem. I just hate seeing no improvement and wearing makeup gives off the illusion that my skin is bet

It's Monday!

Hello everyone! I have to say that eating healthy makes me feel so good even without going out for a jog. It's mostly hot and humid where I am at, which is not my kind of outdoor running weather. I am planning a jog later, but I might just end up jumping rope in the backyard. Okay, so I am seeing a very slight improvement on my cystic acne with the use of Neutrogena benzoyl peroxide and tea tree oil. I just started using tea tree oil instead of the benzoyl peroxide during the day time.

And Now I Have Cysts.

Acne has been a part of my life since freshman year in high school. I wanted to find an alternative to antibiotics and I just thought that out of all the acne treatments out there I had to find something that worked for me. I came across acne.org after having suffered from acne for about two years, and my life changed. First, I gained a support network. Knowing that there were other people like me made me feel that there was hope. Secondly, by using Dan's products my skin did improve, drasticall

Day one: hello world

Going to college next year is something I am looking forward to. Now what to do about my skin? I have created myself a goal of finding a way of making my skin better, and I have faith in myself, that it is in fact a possibility. I am tired of feeling bad for myself, I am not going to let my skin condition get in the way of my happiness. I believe we need to all have faith and hold on to our happiness, because no one is going to give it to us, we need to create it. Yes, we have our bad days;
