This has been a crazy year in skin for me! I went from my worst to the best my skin has looked in years. I know my skin is still healing, but with my continued regimen I pray it only gets better. I'm going to keep it short and sweet & let the pics speak for themselves. Please view my previous posts & tell me what you think. Continue to keep me uplifted!
It's been a long time since I updated you guys! I've added something new to my acne regimen. Here's my new regimen now: (1) Panoxly wash day and night (2) Avar E (day) (3) Epiduo (night) (4) Birth control low dosage (5) Wash with Cuticura soap if I wear makeup So far I've been doing this for about a month and it's been doing pretty good on my skin! I'm really happy but I'm trying not to get overly happy. I want to use it for a while and see how long this will work. I feel so
So I've been racking my brain and racking my brain for like 2 months now trying to figure out why my skin is breaking out so much worse post college graduation (May 2013). It just dunned on me, MAYBE it's my detergent.

I've been reading up on it & watching reviews all day. I'd love to start a treatment, the only thing I'm worried about is the pricing which I heard can be a killer! Feel free to leave any thoughts. Below is a picture of my horrible breakout today.
I'm starting to think sugar or milk triggers my acne. My skin had cleared up dramatically for 3 days last week (Wednesday-Friday). It was looking the best it's looked in A WHILE & I was really excited. I went home that evening & ate some cake & icceream, shortly after I ate it, I noticed tiny bumps reappearing. My bumps are now back & that was only 2 days ago! It's like they never went anywhere how quickly they came back. Now I'm not EXACTLY sure if the sugar is the r
My skin is looking a little better today. My "Regimen" still hasn't come but I think I'm going to stick to my routine until April & see if it works first before I switch it up. I just want to be consistent with it (Read last entry for routine info). I'm trying to stop touching in my face but it's REALLY hard. I'm getting better at it. Check out my pics from today below!
This is my first day on Acne.org. I'm going to start off by introducing myself & giving insight on my acne journey. I am in my early 20s. African American woman. I have dry/acne prone skin. I would classify my acne as moderate. I have suffered with acne since I was 15. I never broke out at all up until that point. I am not sure what triggered it but I'm assuming it was puberty. Over the years, my acne has come in gone but for the most part, it has come. I would be clear for a mo
