Day 16



It's so discouraging..when your skin looks good for a while and then out of no where looks like complete crap. I really don't know what to do. I went to get extractions today and the lady kept telling me to go see a doctor. But I've already done that and tried everything and all that stuff in fact makes it worse. So what am I supposed to do? I don't get it. What did I do to deserve this. What am I doing wrong that is causing this? I just can't figure it out. :( I just want to hide and I hate going out. Thank god for makeup. I'm just going to continue to wash and moisturize and that's it. Hopefully by 2012 I can look decent again. It has been 5 years, and I don't think I can win

i know how you feel huni, had it so bad for the last few years, i don't wanna see friends and just wanna lie in bed aye. now i'm on accutane and its improving great!

drink lots of water, and green tea. does well.. i usually drink a glass of water before bed and wake up and its a lot better..

try different face washes, if you have sensitive skin i recommend Cetaphil. (think its spelt like that)

try wear less make up, or get ones that aren't oil based..

get a little bit of sun on your skin everyday, not too much though!

also something else I've done, and i'm not sure if its recommended ( but i noticed that after a swim or s surf in the sea my skin is a lot better) every now and then i exfoliate with salt and water.. i just get a palm full or salt, add a little water and scrub. but make sure you wash it all off after a minute and moisturize afterwards!

try tea tree oil, its really good! my pharmacist told me a little trick, you put moisturizer around the pimple, and then put a little bit of tea tree oil on the pimple with a q-tip. the moisturizer stops the surrounding skin to be dried out.

watch out that your diet isn't too fatty, every now and then you can haz burger, but try eat a good amount of salads and stuff like that. fruit and veges have high amounts of water in then, and water is very good for skin.

i hope some of this helps. stay confident hun, things should get better.

have you asked your doctor about accutane?
