I thought i'd start a blog to follow my 'journey' with acne (had it since about 14) and hopefully follow it clearing up! (i'm 19!) I had an appointment with a dermatologist on 4th feb and she told me to keep on my lymacilin tablets and adaplene cream but she strongly recommended going on the dianette pill which i should start taking by the end of the week. She also said to get checked incase i have polysistic ovaries which can cause acne, although i doubt i have it. She mentioned (ro)accut
I know it's too early to say my tablets are doing anything significant to my skin just yet but i do feel like they have done something. the left side of my face and my cheeks are clear. the only spots i have are between my right cheek and chin and they are pretty big and red but i was naughty and picked them.. I am aiming to do more ,so i hope that clears my skin too because my brother, who also has acne has completly clear skin now, due to all the sport and exercise he's doing.
So my skin is much better! I only have two spots, the rest are marks. I think this is mainly due to the dianette pill as well ACV helping my skin along a bit. I think i'll try and put some pics up soon. I've also ordered Dan's cleanser and moisturiser which should arrive in the next week or so. I'll let you know if that improves my skin.
I've had a really bad skin day today I was fed up of having to wear make up all the time to feel good about myself, but everyone kept commenting on my skin, so because i didn't wear make up today everyone thought my skin has got worse when infact it hasn't and is just the same and i was reminded about how bad my skin actually is! Basically my skin is sooo red! my left cheek looks like a rash with a giant red spot on my neck and my right cheek is red with a few big red spots which are turni
It's only been a week since the doctor put me on dianette (as well as still using antibiotics and adapelene cream) and i swear i've already noticed a difference in my skin even though she said it would take a while. I still have spots but they are smaller and as i would describe 'normal white heads' rather than giant red ones i had before. The spots on my chest and back have gone down too (although i dont't want to jinx it) I'll update again in a weeks time on how my skins improved
I completlely forgot about this blog! Well i've been on ACV for 4 weeks now and it's fantastic. My skin is smoother and evened out. I still have red marks though but they are much better and new spots heal quicker. My only problem is that I keep picking, I can't not as i'm not going out with a giant white head on my face. The good thing is that I don't get too many whiteheads anymore. Strangely enough i've started getting them on my chest. Hopefully the summer will clear them all up a
Well today has been rubbish. I'm fed up of having to spend ages in the morning covering my face in makeup because I am too embarrased to be seen in public without it. I don't know all you guys on here keep so positive. I've had enough of saying 'one day it'll all clear up!' I've waited wayyyy too long now and i'm giving up hope. So there's my depressed rant. My skin actually has got sooo much better but it's still not good enough. I want to get rid of my scars but have to wait until I stop getti
I spent agesssss yesturday looking through threads on how to help red marks and came across the posts on apple cider vinegar! It really is amazing!!! It makes the skin sooo smooth and soft, and it dries up white heads really quick and flatend the surface of the skin and makes red marks fade. The results are so quick too! You can drink it or put on your skin, I do both. But I only drink a little bit because I'm starting gradually. If you havn't already, go check out the posts on apple cider
I think my skin is getting better, I've tried not to pick but given in way too easily. I think the skin around my spots is really good, i've just got quite a few big red spots/marks on my right cheek and chin. I got some spots on my neck too which is weird. When I first got spots (aged about 14) they were all on my forehead, now my forehead is completley clear and i never gets spots on it no matter what I do to it, then they moved down to my cheeks (by the top of my nose and eyes) and they'
