So I went to the doctors yesterday and told her I felt like the 50mg twice a day was not doing much. She said she could up the dose to 100mg twice a day and i'm kinda of nervous. I've read alot of thing about antibiotics working then once your off them it stops. I dont wanna get clear skin for a month then have it all come back. I'm also using orthotricyclen (however you spell it) for birth control. My doctor swears that with the two combined it should take away the acne. I'm praying! I'm
Hey everyone! I know its been forever since I posted but it's only because I've stopped obsessing over my face! thank god, such a horrible stage i went through! I just wanted to update the changes I've made in my daily regimen. hopefully it can helps others who has hormonal acne like myself! Go to the doctor!!! I waited way too long to go. I always thought you had to go to the dermatologist and I couldn't afford it so I never went. Luckily, doctors can prescribe you with stuff! For th

As for the soda I try not to drink it at all anymore. If i do have a soda i make sure to drink double the water that day to help flush it out. I
So I decided to stop the current cleansers I have been on, which are cetaphil and burts bees. The reason I stopped using cetaphil was because i noticed i was developing small flesh colored bumps on my face that I never had before. It also felt to liquidy to even lather in your hands and I never saw suds no matter how long lathered it. AS for the burt's bees, i was so stupid to believe 100% natural and think aw this will be fine it's all natural. well i was wrong, the menthol in it stung my face
So I posted a blog before posting pictures to show you where my acne is on my face. But to start off I'll give you a background on me and my acne.. I'm 21, female. Got my initial first breakout around 2 and a half months ago. and since then i've had acne active and it's getting worse and worse. My acne is mainly located on my cheeks, jawline and around my mouth. So i guess i have hormonal acne. i do not just get it around my period though it's all month active. I have an occasional pimple
so this is my first time posting pictures. i've always been too embarassed. as you can see my acne is mainly on my cheeks, jawline, and chin... maybe some of you can help me out to see what i'm doing wrong! thanks!!
