Bit of background, from around the beginning of this year my skin has been out of control. I always used to get the odd spot on my face but it never really bothered me, little bit fo concealer and voila. My back and chest were however, a totally different story. From highschool I had acne no my back and chest and this lasted years!
On to today and now: My back and chest are clear! The odd spot on the back of my neck where my hair is but doesnt bother me in the slightest. My face is a different story, Ive been the doctors so many times I need about 2 more hands to count, Ive tried benzoyl peroxide, I ended looking like id been burned!
Here is my current regime:
Mornings: Clinque Anti Blemish 3 step system.
Night: Clinque Anti Blemish 3 step system. I also put calamine lotion on my spots in an attempt to heal and dry the things out.
Ive been on the clinique for 2 weeks now, my skin went amazing during the first week, only about 4 spots which was a major improvement but since then ive broken out ridiculously. Im hoping this is a sign of my pores being cleared out. Fingers crossed ay.
I'm also currently 3.5 weeks into using Oxytetracycline, i'm told it takes from 4-6 weeks to see any effect so fingers crossed in the next couple of weeks something spectacular will happen.
Starting from today I decided that I'm going to go dairy free, no milk cheese butter etc. I'm hoping this will help do the trick!
By 2011 I wouldve been on my anti-biotics for 8 weeks and if I then dont see an improvement my doctor has made an appointment with a specialist.
Aswell as writing to this blog every couple of days to update progress or lack of I will be creating a gallery to show the state of my skin through the next 4 weeks.
Roll on 2011 and hopefully a lovely clear complexion x
