SO i've been dealing with acne since I was a sophomore in high school. I'm now a sophomore in college and it's basically limited me from doing a lot of things that I want because i'm extremely self conscious about my skin. It's really hard to look at everyone else that doesn't have this problem, and then there's me who wakes up hoping things will be a little better. I've tried almost everything. Proactiv, countless neutrogena, clean and clear, biore, stridex, cetaphil, atralin, differin, clindamycin, plus countless oral medications that I have an entire gallon bag of at my house.
Right now I have more blocked pores than anything, they're little bumps all over my forehead, temple, and chin. My nose gets them sometimes too.
I use only powder makeup, bare minerals, to avoid using a liquid.
I use clindamycin in the morning and atralin at night. I've noticed that my skin has been very dry sometimes even though I get at least 4-6 cups of water everyday.
I have a pretty good diet, I weigh 112 pounds and I take vitamins everyday. I used to take vitamins with fish oil in them but I had to take them with a full stomach and I don't think they helped much.
I'm trying to switch dermatologists but i'm just about ready to give up and go live in a cave
