Hi all, I have been busy for a while, so I haven't got a chance to blog, but I just want to update you with the progress of my acne. I am glad to say that I am clear from acne It has been 6 years, and I'm now 17, it has taken a long time, though trial and error. The main reason, I think that had helped me clear my acne is not stressing, and to control your emotions. I know it's hard to do, but I promise that once you stop fussing with your skin, stop worrying about what people would think of
My acne has improved a lot, but yesterday 2 giant zit came up on my chin, its a pustule and a cyst. They are both very very painful and I'm sure it will leave a huge spot mark. I think it's hormonal acne... But the rest of my face it clear, its just these two painful zits. =( Hopefully it will go soon.
My regimen for those who are interested. Daily AM: wash face with Clean&Clear deep action cream wash Use my own made apple cider toner then I use my Asda oil control dual action moisturiser. I really love this stuff. i think its only available in the UK =( If I have a spot I'll put some BP on it I use Duac once daily gel. PM: Wash face with Neutrogena visibly clear gentle exfoliating wash then I apply my Neutrogena visibly clear oil-free moisturiser. If I have spots,
I haven't had a break-out for a month now. I don't know if this means my acne is clearing up or what. I am so happy that i wake up and not find a new zit on my face =) Its feels weird, but good! However, I did have a big cystic spot on my chin, but i put some BP on it and it went by the end of the day!! A miracle?? Looking at my face now, I'll say that I'm 99% cleared!! I haven't got any active spots, but i have got lots of marks left by previous spots. I got it especially on my chin, and cheeks
So, I haven't been wearing make-up for the past week and I notice the difference in my skin. It looks really fresh and clean, if you know what I mean. It take a few minutes to get ready in the mornings now. I just put moisturizer on and I'm ready. I try to only wear make-up on special occasions, or not wear anything at all, it depends on how red my face is. If i do wear make-up it would be a minimal amount and it would be powder foundation or mineral foundation. Not wearing make-up allows
I have noticed that every time I use make-up, I breakout in spots. So, I am trying to not wear any make-up at all to see if there is any improvements. Since there is no school, I am going to try it out. I will update in a week.
It has been a month since I last posted a blog. Sorry, I have been busy with exams, but now I'm free for 2 months. During the last month I've had really bad breakout, because of the stress I was in. Now that my exams are finished my skin is clearing up again. However, I get those red spot marks left behind by the spots. Which is just as bad as having spots itself My dry skin has finally cleared up!! Thanks to my organic Aloe Vera gel. I also notice it is less greasy and oily. But th
It has been 4 day since I used aloe vera gel as a moisturiser, and my dry skin has improved a lot. I want to continue using it to see if it can clear my spots as well. If you have dry, irritated skin, aloe vera is a great product to heal it. I have also started to use retin-A again and its still drying but, I will grin and bear it.
I make my own toner. It is made from apple cider vinegar, green tea and lemon juice. These ingredience helps to reduce spot marks, reduce pore size and reduce oil. I use this toner every night, as I find it too drying if I use it in the morning as well. After it had dried, I put on retin-A. I make 2 weeks worth and keep it in a jar and put it in the fridge. Therefore when you apply it on your face, its cold and it feels really nice =) However, I have not used this toner for 1 week, bec
I found this website the other day and I found it pretty helpful. Its called Face Mapping and is helps find the underlying causes for your spots.. . How amazing it that? Hopefully by making these changes my ance will improve. Here, check it out: (http://www.skinacea.com/acne/acne-face-map.html) Good Luck ^.^
I had a HUGE cup of coffee last week, and my mum warned me that I will pop up in spots. Of course being a teenager I didn't listen to her. So, today when I woke up I found 4 new tiny cycts around my mouth area and a huge one above my lips =,( it is painful to talk and smile. I did some research on caffeine and found it is bad to dink coffee/coke if you suffer for acne. The moral of this story is stay away from caffeine, it is easy for me to say because I don't depend on caffeine to mak
This is my first post!! I want to help people like myself who suffer from acne =) I started having acne at the age of 11 and I'm 16 now.. still haven't been cured. I am a girl that suffers from moderate acne. I have tried everything, except for accutane.. I don't want to put myself through 6 months of pain, of blood testing, of side effects, etc, etc. The list goes on! I went doctors and she prescribed antibiotics and retin-A. I completed the 3 month course of antibiotics and my skin cleare
