Mederma cream is working! :)

Okay the blemishes on my face are healing but its the same old story.. the bp totally dries the area where the pimple was leaving these ugly patches of super dry skin. No matter how much I mosturize. Blah.. at least I have no more new blemishes on my face. I think my skin is still getting used to Dans bp gel. I hope I did the right thing by changing products from my 10% bp cream that my skin was used to. Oh! on a positive note.. Mederma is really working for my scars on my chest. I can slowly see them fading away

Facial Hair & Zinc supplement

Okay so first things first.. Last week I discovered that now Im getting hair on my neck as part of what will one day be a full grown beard lol Im 18 and was expecting this anytime now, but turns out that along with the hair coming out its making my neck break out. I have never had not even one little pimple on my neck before. I just hope this isnt another area I have to worry about now! I have only one little tiny pimple now but im afraid there might be more to come. Sigh.. My face is doing pretty well. My forehead has gotten really bumpy though and there is this one pimple that wont go away. I blame this on my lack of Zinc supplement which I used to take everyday. I stopped because a couple of weeks ago I took one of my little 50mg Zinc tablets on an empty stomach.... BIG mistake buddy... I had the worst tummy ache of my life. I thought i was gonna die. It even made me throw up. I finally ate something and that made it go away. Zinc can only be taken on a full stomach. So I stopped taking the zinc for a couple of weeks and I can tell the difference. I went back to taking it last night. Baristabrat

FML

So my skin is looking pretty bad, I got a couple of blemishes around my mouth which look pretty bad because the BP has totally dried out the area around them so I cant apply makeup to cover them up I just have to deal with them. Gahh.. I feel a new pimple coming on my chin area which was prolly caused cause Ive been shaving pretty roughly lately. I mean my skin has improved tons in the last couple of months and the pimples I get are pretty small. But cant I just have no acne?? I look at my friends skin and its perfect without them even trying. My skin is so sensitive I effin hate it. Thats my rant today.. Hopefully my skin will get better and not worse.

Makeup for guys?

Yes. Makeup isnt only for girls. And it can be a life saver when u get an unexpected blemish on your face. A little concealer goes a long way, and can even help it heal! I use Murads Acne treatment Concealer. It has 2% salicylic acid. Ive tried other concealers but this one is by far the best. It really hides pimples and marks. Not completely sometimes but helps. I use some everyday and apply it with the moisturizer to help it blend. Its about $20 and lasts about 3 months and I use it a lot! On a more personal note, I have a huge blemish inside my nose if that makes any sense LOL. The good thing is no one can see it. The bad thing is it hurts like hell when i touch it. And a small blemish on my chest came up today. Ugh... I hate chest pimples because they take forever to heal and leave hideous marks. Lots of BP and Mederma scar treatment to make it go away. Please please go away... Other than that skin is looking pretty good. Dans 2.5% benzoil peroxide cream works great with my skin. I think ive found the products that work and have no plans to change them anytime soon.

AHA is bullshit

So everyone on here swears by that stuff. I bought a bottle hoping it would work like a charm when actually it gave me the worst acne EVER!!! This was like a month ago. My face is completely recovered except for my forehead which has a lot of tiny bumps that refuse to go away. So do my back and chest. My back was the worst its still recovering from the tens of little bumps i got. SO annoying! It went right in the trash. I only used it for 2 days and hated it. I wasnt expecting it to be magic but I wasnt expecting it to completely mess up my skin in only 2 days!! ouch. All im trying to say is.. it doesnt work on everyone. AHA+= ze worst (borat accent) My skin is looking great improvement on my chest and shoulders im feeling great about my skin overall

Ugh!

So things were starting to look up for me. Ive been wearing my sunglases lately and today when i walked in the bathroom and looked in the mirror... I had a pimple on my nose! luckily it was only a red dot and its already healing. I hadnt had a pimple grow on my nose since 7th grade! so glad it didnt came out as a full blown zit. New little pimple growing on my t zone. other than that skin is looking pretty good, clearing up on chin and very smooth and soft skin overall. Edit: OH! I forgot to mention. My manager from my old store told me my skin was really clearing up. People are starting to notice. That made me smile. Its 10pm and the little blemish on my nose is almost gone. My purpose for this week is to drink as much water as posible. I have a Trenta cup on my desk im gonna try to drink 4 of those a day (4 liters of water).

Things are looking up!

Hello! Im barista brat! Im a Starbucks barista from SoCal. Ive been struggling with acne since I was 13. I've tried everything over the years and even tried a dermatologist who gave me some antibiotics that made my acne go away. Then I moved to California and stopped taking the antibiotics. This last year has been the worst skin of my life. I started breaking out on shoulders, lower back, chest (this ones the worst cause even though its only a couple of zits they take forever to heal) and all over my face. I finally found what works for me after trial & error for the past year. Here's my regimen: morning and night -PanOxyl 10% BP wash -Acne.org 2.5% BP gel -Moisturizer! this was the key to my skin looking better than ever. I use clean & clear's dual action 0.5% salicylic acid. -1 50mg Zinc tablet every night with dinner. This made my zits way smaller. My face is almos 100% clear which is a luxury i hadnt had in over a year. I still break out a little bit on my shoulders. Im using Mederma cream for scars on chest to make those little red scars go away. As a barista and talking to people all day im glad at least my face is totally clear so Im not shy when interacting with customers.
