My Story With Acne

So where do I start? Hopefully not with the whole puberty talk but just the acne problem that comes with it should do (chuckle). When I was in grade 5 about 11 I got my first zit on my nose. I didn't know until then but that was a pustule where there was a red inflamed look to it. Of course no one in my class was use to it so they called me rudoph the red nose reindeer. Kids can be cruel right? Well needless to say, I just brushed it off until I started middle school in grade 6. That's when my small zits around me nose spread all over my cheeks, chine, forehead and temples. I was then called pizza face by everyone and I could not handle looking at the mirror. One day, I saw an ad on t.v called Proactiv® and I told my mom if we could try it. So once i started using the 3-step system, I immediately saw a massive improvement for the first 2 months. Unfortunately, due to the hefty price, we could not buy it anymore so I had to opt for the cheaper drugstore products. My acne came back and I was desperate to find a cure. I then came across a system very similar to proactiv® called Acnefree® and that cleared me up and even better than proactive®. I continued to use it for 2 and a half years until it was discounted in Canada so I was left with acne coming back. I know, what a pain, right? I started using other products like Oxy which was very decent and good and very fast and cheap to buy! Clearasil is one of my favourites because it works great and feels great. Neutrogena® is also and still today my go to brand and of course clean and clear® has a multitude of great products. So as you can see, I had to go through many phases of ups and downs until I founds things that worked. You guys can too! I'm 17 now and I can say that my hormones are starting to slow down with that my acne is also not as active unless if I'm stressed.
