About this blog

Creative name, right? Everyone suffers from acne, but it just so happens that it seems like i'm the only one with moderate-severe acne. Of course, it's a cliché, but this is MY road to hopefully no acne! Enjoy! :)

Might Not Be The Best For Me.. Help?!

Holaaaa! I've been using the St. Ives green tea scrub for about a month or two. The first week I thought it was working great, and helping with my acne. Actually, the smell was pretty nice! Though now I'm just not so sure that the green tea scrub is right for me and my skin type. I have semi-oily, sensitive skin (it gets pretty dry when using the wrong product), and moderate-seveare acne, and it's just not getting any better! I also have a lot of blackheads now, since starting the product - at least, more than I used to have. I thought about maybe using the St. ives green tea cleanser, and just use the scrub once a week or something like that. I've gone to the derm and was given this moisturizer stuff and some pills (which were useless, since I can't swallow them), and the moisturizer just made my skin unbearably itchy, red, and flakey. I'm still asking for your help. If you have the same sort of acne as me, and found a product that you think works, will you recommend it? That would be greatly appreciated! Or any tips and such would be helpful as well (: Thanks!

Day 1 (Of Blogging)

Howdy! Thanks for reading my blog. First off, I'll just explain my background with acne... Of course everyone gets acne, but it seems like (in my town), I suffer from it the most. Honestly, everywhere you look people have really nice skin (or nicer than mine, anyways). The way I look at it, I've been suffering from acne for almost four years. I'm in high school, which is definitely not a good time to suffer from moderate-severe acne. For people that know where I'm coming from, they'll back me up when I say that it's really hard to get through the days with acne. For me, the looks people give me are weird, it's hard to find a guy that likes you (though that's really not what i'm interested in - i just want to get through high school!) But what hurts most is what people say. I know, I know, this blog is turning into some sap story. I'm sorry if you feel like i'm trying to get attention or whatever, but i'm really not a pathetic teen blogging their troubles over the internet. So anyways, it's hard to live with acne, especially when you get called names like "pizza face". And it's even worse when you have two sisters, one with amazing skin, and one almost there. Though hopefully, fingers crossed, I will rid my face, back and chest from acne once and for all (hopefully before I graduate). I guess I could go easier on my skin (hehe). I don't eat the healthiest, though I truly put in an effort (milk chocolate = my weakness), and the conditions I put my skin through aren't helping either. I'm a vegetarian, and the lack of protein in my diet might not be good for my skin. I'm normally stressed, about school or about family. I also play rugby, and the dirt and sweat might not be the best for my acne as well. The fact is, I love being a vegetarian, school (nerd alert), and playing rugby waaaaay too much to even think about giving those up, all for the sake of getting clear skin. Though maybe I don't have to... In this blog, you'll read about my life with acne, and my travels towards clear skin. I'll review items, and tell you the acne solutions I've tried that have clearly failed. Hopefully you'll be able to share the experiences with me, and relate to what I have to say. Currently I'm using the st. ives naturally clear green tea scrub. It's good, i suppose, but doesn't clear my skin. Sure, it keeps my acne under control, though I still get the occasional pimple, and my current pimples just aren't going away. I'll post more entries later, maybe with photos, but for now I'll just have to stick with posting weekly updates on my acne.
