So here we are. Almost two years I've been apart of the Acne.org communtiy and I still haven't found my turning point. There have definitely been some ups, and obviously some downs. I really thought I was starting to understand my skin though. I thought I knew what worked on it, and what didn't. I thought I was following the rules. But now I just don't know anymore. My skin has gone from being oily and getting random, unpredicable breakouts all over my face. To becoming more dry and senitive, bu
I don't know where I went, why I thought I should end my attempt at clear skin. But I don't think I was trying hard enough. As angry as I am right now at everything, I'm blaming the world for how afraid I am to try and get rid of my acne. I have to understand I have it for a reason, there is some point to me being covered in massive inflamed zits and deep purple scars, across my face, cheast, and back. I have to pull myself together and look forward. For me to be succesful It's about more than s
I am soooo frusterated my skin has just continued to break out. I am mad at myself for buying the morning burst facewash! It does not work at all. I just want my skin to clear. Not only do I have large inflamed breakouts but, also dozens of whiteheads, and scars that aren't going anywhere fast. I want to be optimistic, But I feel I'm walking in the wrong direction. I hoped almost 20 days into this whole thing I'd see atleast a teeny tiny bit of prgress, but no. I've taken Proactiv toner out of m
Two week anniversary! All of this has become a lot more than just over coming my acne. I honestly want to be happy, but technically I am. I just want to refresh who I am and really become myself again. By feeling 100% comfortable in my own skin will help me open more doors in my life. I have a bout of break outs that have kind of bumming me out. This led to a false smile, some questions about my regimen, and a LOT of uneeded eating. I dont really eat bad foods but, I tend to eat more when I'm sa
I just felt the need to talk about this.
I ran low on my Clean & Clear foaming facial wash, so silly me got intrested in the Morning Burst Cleanser. The fun commercial and pretty packaging got the best of me I've been using it for about 4 days and it seems to be working fine. But I just dont like it, it smells amazing and theres like a hand-full of strawberry seeds in the bottle. Overall it's a nice cleanser for someone without acne, not me. My issues are it doesn't really foam when you
As usual today come with a new challenge, luckily most of my break outs are starting to fade. I still have them but, they are a lot less inflamed and I haven't gotten any new ones. So my issue is dry skin! It isn't tight or uncomfortable or very noticeable. It really doesn't bother me that much but, I am curious to the reason behind it. From what I understand it is quite normal to experience dry skin while starting the Regimen. But this doesn't make sense to me because, I have dry flaky skin nea
*Sigh* As my first week passes looking back I don't know how well it really went. When I'm focused and on track I feel great and do great, but it's hard when things start to get in the way. Between swimming, and having company over I started to get tired andwould quickly wash before jumping ino bed. Followed by me sleeping until noon and rushing to wash and start my day. This made the quality of my washing awful, I didn't give my skin a chance to absorb what I was putting on it before piling on
I'm not a huge fan of water. This sounds really bad, but I honestly don't drink near enough water. I drink it while I'm working out and if I'm craving water (which doesn't happen very often) and everywhere I read everything is telling me that drinking water is just fantastic! It will make me feel better, help clear my skin, keep me hydrated. But let's face it water is boring, boring, boring. But I believe if I set my mind to it I can replace 90% of what I drink with water. With the help of a cut
WOW . . . Nothing has happened yet, which I am okay with. Luckily my skin has held up really well, no irritation at all. I feel like I've put my face through more in the last three days then I have in the past three months!! I'm so happy I've found the regimen, I spent pretty all of yesterday in the sun, which usually leads to me breaking out mainly on my forehead. But with the help of an amazing sunscreen and strictly following all of the rules the regimen, I haven't which feels amazing!
I've just completed my first morning of my personal version if the Regimin. I'm following the rules as best as possible but, I am restricted in some ways. I was currently on Proactiv which is bought, and paid for by my mom, who along with my sister still use. I've used it for several years, I tried some different products along the way but figured if Proactiv was working so well for my family it should work for me. Eventually I came to the conclusion that I was settling for OK skin. Proactiv did
My acne doesn't control me, it isn't severe and painful and constantly stopping me from meeting my potential. But it's always there, not only physically dotting my face and covering my cheast and back, but mentally. In the back of my mind I know that it puts me out from the rest of my friends who can comfortably wear tank-tops and cute dresses. I know that some people look at my skin before they look at ME. But before I begin the regimin I want to know why I'm doing it.
