A Decision I Never Thought I'd Make.

Hey everyone! I have had BAD acne for almost 5 years. I am so terribly sick of it. In the beginning I genuinely thought I could go to the drugstore, find a magic potion and just be rid of the blemishes. I have come to realize that the very long isle FILLED with various brands of bullshit don't do anything if your acne is both hormonal and persistent. I have also come to realize that I cannot and should not depend on these crap products. They won't clear my skin, bring back my self esteem, o

My Face.

Hey everyone. its about a week before that special time of month and my face won't let me forget it. So I thought I would share a few pictures of what my skin looks like. I wanted to upload the pictures from my phone- you would actually see every lump and bump but that failed so check out these crappier webcam versions Currently my skin hates me. Be assured the feeling is mutual. I went to Sephora just the other day and bought the Kat Von D foundation to try and hide this crap. It hides

Makeup And Acne

Do you ever feel like your part of a vicious cycle? Battling with hating your pimples, covering them, and then hating the new breakouts- I have fought this struggle for almost 5 years now. I don't like makeup. At first I did. I thought it would help me feel better. However, washing my face late at night and realizing the problems were still there, worse, and destroying my complexion have been the turning point. The reality of my skin has made me hate makeup. I love doing other people's makeup- i

The Sun- Acne Friend Or Foe?

Hey everyone! I have had this obsession with avoiding the sun for the past 2 years. I wear huge hats, cover my face with the mirror thing in the car in the weirdest angles, and never swim. Anyways, I have noticed that my skin really didn't improve in these past two years. I just basically stayed whiter than my usual self and my pimples and scars actually looked more noticeable. So if your wondering why I did this- Over googling is the problem. I read that the sun will make scars worse while

Is Ice The Secret Acne Cure?

Hey everyone! Being a victim to acne often means constant Google searches for cures- most of the time we seek fast working cures! I remember having a big family gathering and freaking out the night before because my acne had no mercy. I was covered with breakouts and needed a quick solution. I came across ice for the first time as a solution for acne. This was about 2 years ago. After trying Ice many times I have made some observations and I have come up with a conclusion that could help

Does Changing How You Clean Your Face Help With Acne?

Hello all, I have got a pretty random topic today! I want to talk about how I clean my face and how it has really helped my acne I know we have all heard of the Clarisonic or face brushes in general. I have been using a similar (significantly cheaper) face brush by Olay. I used to be quite skeptical about these types of devices because its of course, not a good idea to over-scrub our skin. This being said, I love cleaning my face with this brush, I can only imagine how great the Clarisonic

Hormonal Acne Solutions

Hey all! Having PCOS has caused me to basically rarely have clear skin. I often go through endless cycles of breakouts. I have massive eruptions on my face just before that time of month (not just 1 or 2 small ones- like 6-7 large deep painful cystic bumps). After the time of month I heal and usually get less severe pimples on the way. Then it repeats! Anyways. This being said I have managed to break the cycle of bad skin- for the most part. These days I worry most about scars while using

How I Fade My Acne Scars!

If your anything like me- acne scars are stressful. I have tried so many things. Lemons, baking soda, cucumbers, vichy spot treatment, garnier glycolic acid peel for scars, scar fade, coconut oil, tamanu oil, maderma- the list actually goes on. What I have found to be most effective: 2 things AND 2 others that have had some effectiveness for others! 1) Time- No matter what you put on your face those nasty things will fade on their own. sometimes in days, weeks, months, or years. Hardly any

Do You Limit Yourself Because Of Acne?

Recently I have been really thinking about some of my decisions. I have really realized that a lot of things I have done that have caused me misery are a result of how I have seen myself. For this I will be using my relationship as an example. I have been in a relationship for about 4 years. we met when I was 17. I was surprised that someone found me attractive because I hated my face. I thought it was so unlikely that anyone would want to be with me. This might sound bad, but this is reall
