Wow haven't been on in a LONG time! Been beyond busy, kind of forgot about this site actually. So this is just a quick update because I see no point spending forever on a machine. I am still using Birth Control as a skin clearing method, and it's still doing okay. It keeps the cystic acne away which I will forever be thankful for. However I still get some little pimples, and I honestly don't freak out about it anymore. I don't' need it to be perfectly clear, sure I want that but hey I'm a
I finally discovered what was causing my breakouts! At least, I'm almost 99.9% sure. Last week I drank a TON of juice! I was careful not to choose the crap loaded with sugar so I went with the Simply stuff... and yes it still had a lot of sugar, even if they were natural sweetners.. in the end sugar is sugar and my body apparently really hates it. Well that and all the other crap I had last weekend.. Anyways, now that it's over with I'm sort of going through a detox process because like i sai
Gahh I don't know what's making me breakout, honestly it's been worse this month than in a while. I have a stupid cyst on my chin and right on the edge of my lip! It's not my diet because I haven't even had junk food, sugar or anything like that in a long time, I'm still washing my face twice a day etc... So anyways that's just annoying but I ordered Carley's Clear and Smooth Treatment face wash so hopefully that can help before I leave on my trips. This is just a bad month
This month has just been breakout central for me sadly. I'm not sure why but I've been breaking out just about everyday, nothing like absolutely HUGE, but a lot on my forehead, like around 4 right now, and that really hasn't happened in months. Also some little under the skin white dot things around my cheek and mouth, ahh I don't know what is causing this but I really don't like it. Other than that, went to my doctor last week and got a full year of Tri-Nessa BC. Tips for any girls thinking of
Been a little whilee since my last post, I've beeen super busy. Anyways I'm really excited to be posting this because for the first time I can see that I'm about 98% clear! Whoa, never thought I'd say that! It could even be almost 100, depends on the week really. However, I'm just sorta on top of thee moon right now with that news, and my scars are fading! Slowly, but they are definitely getting lighter, and my skin is evening out pretty well. I got this new face wash, Boot's Botanic's Deep po
Okay so in my last entry, I was saying how I was breaking out pretty bad this week and didn't know why since it had been clearing up pretty well, and now I think I know why! This last week or so I've been drinking a lot of Chai Tea, like at least two a day usually, and when I make them I fill half the glass with milk.. Well I know that they say cow's milk can be bad for the skin because of the hormones, and since last week, I didn't drink any milk. So there's my answer and I'm 99.9% sure that's
So for a little bit, I was actually really clearing up and lemme tell you, it was the best feeling ever! But for some reason this week I've broken out pretty bad, worse then normal, especially because my forehead stayed clear for a good amount of time and not it's going crazy, probably the bangs. Anywhoo, still on my same reg. but I've updated a little bit and it seems to be working okay. In the mornings I use my St. Ives Naturally clear face wash. Then I use Alba's toner, and some cetephil
So I think it's my last week before month four on birth control, yay..? There have been changes, no doubt. But the scars are killing mee, seriously it looks like I always have blemishes on my face because of these scars, when I really don't. The other week I had a LITTLE breakdown about the stupid acne and my birth control not working and decided to buy the AcneFree kit. It's basically like the regimen, benzol peroxide and then more of it. But it cleared up my bad breakout in around three days..
So i've been on my birth control for about 3 1/2 months now, and I'm really not seeing any changes. I felt like it cleared up for a while, but I've never had acne this bad before. I'm getting a cyst on my chin, ew. And wake up every day with a least one or two new pimples around my mouth and now they're all over my forehead. So by trying to clear these up, my skin is once again dry meaning makep doesn't work. I'm going to stick it out and see how it goes in the next month or two, but apparently
Hello again! It's been a while since my last update, school makes me busy Anywhoo, I'm getting kinda annoyed, I mean I start to clear up, and then outta nowhere get HUGE breakouts. I mean I guess to some people they aren't considered huge, but I hate them in general so to me its a big deall haha. I've been trying to clear up a recent breakout, I think it might have been from a goodtimes sandwich I had.. apparently my body hates that food, considering I never eat it... So staying away from that
So i'm really super bored right now, seeing as its 1 in the morning, home alone, and therefor, can't sleep. Soo I thought I'd mention the little repair routine that I've been working on this week. I have a school break for a couple days so i figured now is the time to fixx it all. In the mornings I wash my face with an exfoliating scrub, the Loreal 360 one. Then I use the Sea Breeze toner, and last but not least my AHA from this site. At night it's just about the same routine except I put
Ughh this has been a bad breakout week, like BAD. I don't know if it's because I switched my toner or the fact that my face just hates me. I'm really so sick of this, I didn't have acne this bad AT ALL before I started the regimen in June, after I stopped my face just went crazy on me. I have like a million scars, which isn't so bad because I know they'll fade, but also all those little white bumps under the skin, around the mouth area and above it are SOOOO annoying and NEVER go away!!! I read
Hellooo! Hope everyone's weekend was well! I spent mine writing papers.. oh well soon to be over! About half way in to my second month of BC, and the results are great! I'm still getting pimples, but nothing like I used to. Severe! scarring of course, but I can live with that. Hopefully within the next month it will be even more clear, then I can start and heal my scars. For any girl who really has tried everything, I would highly recommend going and talking to a doc about birth control, it save
Not too much new to report.. I might breakout kinda bad this week.. I just loaded up on coffee since I'm pulling an all nighter, hello sugar! I also haven't been eating the absolute best. However, tonight is really exciting for me becausee my nephew is going to be born! YAY. So I'm writing from the hospital, trying to finish a project due tomorrow that I haven't even started. I also don't have any of my face stuff for tonight.. good ol water n soap for the night, and I also couldn't take my vita
sorry it's been so long since my last post, school makes me a busy bee! Today is the last today of BC, week 1 of month 2. I have seen great results with this. I mean, I still occasionally 'breakout', like this weekend was a horrible breakout weekend for me, I think it was the Sonic I ate.. Anyways, other then that, I usually only get MAYBE 1-2 pimples a day, which is heaven for me. My skin is also not dry anymore so I can wear makeup and look normal My regimen is pretty basic, I just felt the n
So I'm assuming that all these breakouts around my mouth, it's most likely because of the BC and getting used to it. My doctor said it might make it worse before it gets better, but the BC should start kicking in within this next month. Other then that, my recent breakout (yesterday) is healing pretty well. I got this new make-up primer from Pixi.. OH MY! This stuff is amazing! It's gives an amazing glow, doesn't clog pores, and has all these vitamins and moisturizes as well! It was 30$... so pr
Friday, I LOVE YOU! Ahh sweet sweet weekends So in my last blog I talked a little about an Ultimate game on Thursday, so that was weird. First of all, I had to cover a chick who was seriously like a damn ninja, she NEVER stopped running around, then my stupid shin splints came back so I had to sit out the rest of the time, and now my 'coach' wants me to go to a doctor.. lame. Anyways, my face has been pretty dry and flaky this week. I broke out a bit on my forehead, chin (of course), and cheek.
Hello 3rd week of birth control, you are my friend But really, I'm really excited to be on my third week because my doctor said it would take 1-2 months to start working, and 3 weeks is VERY close to 1 month Grr I had another little breakout on my chin.. seriously I don't know what it is, but my chin hasn't been fully clear in probably at least a year, there's ALWAYS a pimple there, and it's getting annoying. Especially all the scarring, whenever I'm clear one day, those scars better go away!
Hey guess what?!!?! I don't know what's doing it.. but my skin is looking better! Still a long way to go, but hey only about 3 tiny little pimples in the last couple days, woohoo! *knocks on wood*. Here's my routine: Morning: Oxy clinical face wash Burt's Bee's exfoliating wash Special Cucumber Lotion Alba green tea moisturizer and when I get home from school I use Oxy face pads to get off the cover up. I'm using Neutrogena Clear Skin cover-up, it has Salicylic Acid in it, a
So far the repairing of my breakout is going okay. I got some more pimples on my forehead... those don't bother me too much though. My chin is still clearing up, and I stll have those little tiny under skin pimples or whatever, i call them bumps, all around my mouth and nose, and they are now appearing just all over my face wherever they feel like popping up. However, I'd take those over pimples any day. I think my face is slowly on it's way to becoming a little more clear. I feel lke once I fol
Okay I'm back from my trip, yay!! It was simply amazing! Ahh so much fun, worked my ass off, and had a blast with all the kids I was hardly ever thinking about my face.. okay that's a lie, I thought about it all the time, but there was nothing I could do so I got over it. However, I only had face pads to bring, and a little pimple blocker pen. I have a huge breakout on my chin, like massive, along with a little pimple above my lip, and two on my forehead, not too bad for 4 days without washing
Well tomorrow I leave for my trip, and my face is looking so much better then last week, it's a miracle. Although I think I just inherited many new scars from last week's recent events I can't wash my face on the trip, however I can use some face pads and toner, so that's pretty good. Today I tried a baking soda mask, since it got some really good reviews. A little advice, it burns the more sensitive skin, so from now on I keep it away from my nose, you might want to try that too. Otherwi
Well considering I only had about 2 days to try and clear up my major breakout on Thursday/Wednesday, I think it's healing pretty good. On my chin, still the cyst under my lip although it's gone down a lot since I did the egg white and egg yolk masks today. There's one pimple/cyst thing on my chin as well, and it's surrounded by scars from the breakout, so it looks like I have a horrible.. i don't even know but it's really only stupid scars Oh well, nothing I can do about it right now. I'm star
Wow.. major breakdown yesterday. I'm just stressed about going on this trip and pretty much being the only kid with some what bad acne. And nothing to help it for 4 days.. Anyways, this weekend I've been on major skin repair duty. I've researched a lot, since these Mario products aren't working fast enough for me, I need to try a different approach for now. So I went out and bought Oxy face cleanser, and Oxy treatment pads, and some Cetaphill moisturizer.. which I realized I already owned, just
