Update 7

The past few days have been really great days. I think my skin is finally calming down. I’ve learned to notice the signs of an oncoming breakout so I can stop use of whatever caused it. I’ve also learned to distinguish the difference between breakouts and purging. I’ve learned about my skin’s needs, how to pick the right products for my skin, and overall I’ve learned how to make my skin happy. This week has been the first that my skin hasn’t had any new pimples pop up. I of course

Update 6

Alrighty, so I think I owe an explanation as to why I’ve been gone without an update for so long. Not long after my last update, I had a huge breakout and couldn’t bring myself to hold a camera up close to all of my imperfections and post them online. I didn’t want to take any more pictures until I cleared up, but then I got swept into.. well, life. I’ve been pretty busy. That being said, I do have a lot to say in this blog entry. After my skin freaked out on me, I immediately stop

Update 5, 7/27/16

Update 5! Hi guys! I’m sorry I haven’t been able to update on a daily basis or post daily pictures over the past few days. I’ve been super busy. That being said, I stayed consistent with my regimen, which is cool. I would say that my face has been looking just a little bit better. Today’s pictures will be labeled “Day 7” which means it’s been just about a week since this new regimen has become a regular thing for me. While I do think the active acne and the scars that were already

Update 4, 7/24/16

Update 4! I must say, today was a pretty alright day in terms of skin, even though I’m quite sure that nothing has changed yet. I know I’m only 4 days in to this log, and no major changes could’ve possibly taken place yet to make my skin look too much better, but I really felt like I looked okay today. Sometimes I just get these random bursts of confidence, which I love, and it makes me feel okay with my skin and how it’s progressing. Today, I really believed that in 2 or 3 months, maybe

Update 3, 7/23/16

Update 3! Okay, so still being consistent with everything. That’s cool. Buuuuut I’m getting a cystic pimple right on the peak of my cheek bone, so that’s sucky. Yknow how you can feel it way deep in your skin way before it reaches the height of its lifespan? That’s what it feels like right now, and it hurts a lot. You can see it getting redder. If you look at my left cheek’s day 3 picture in my gallery, you can definitely see it. I don’t really see any big differences in my skin to

Update 2, 7/22/16

Update 2! It’s only day 2, but so far I’ve stayed completely consistent with my regimen, which is great. I’m taking pictures of both cheeks and my forehead daily to really see the results of products I use. Since it’s only day 2, I don’t really see a huge change in my skin, other than it maybe looks a little bit worse and/or irritated. I sort of expected this, as it is a newer regimen. My skin’s worsened state really isn’t that bad, and it isn’t like “allergic reaction” irritated, more li

Update 1, 7/21/16

Hello everyone! My name is Amelia, but I usually refer to myself as Amy. I’m 16 years old. I’m making this blog to tell my story and share/keep track of my skin’s progress. The reason I’m making this is really more for me, so I can see my skin’s progress and stay motivated to stick to a regimen and get clear of acne. However, it isn’t just for me, because I want someone to see this and see that it is possible to get clear if you’re determined enough. I’ll be posting pictures along with my
