Retin-A Micro Update: Day 53 **before And After Photos

Okay guys, so this is a post thats VERY hard to share but im hoping that if i can give at least one person hope ill be succeeding with what i initially wanted to do with this post. So if you guys have been following my posts ive talked about having very bad nodular cystic acne and up until now i was so afraid to post any photos just because looking at them hurts me, the pictures show a different person than who i am. And i know thats weird to say considering its been a month and a half but that guy in that photo has no self confidence, didnt want to go out in public, cried a lot because of his skin condition and just felt like nothing was going right for him. The same guy posting this blog however is a confident happy proud guy who cant wait to go to the mall and hang out with his friends. ive noticed a HUGE change in myself since my skin cleared up. right before i started RAM i was depressed and i tried to hide it when i was around my friends and act like there was nothing which worked but that didnt make me feel better. i tried avoiding my problem rather than tackling it head on. My depression caused bad diet bad skin care routine etc... while on RAM i realised something which i probably mentioned in all of my previous blogs. if you want to get rid of your acne you have to change your lifestyle completely. but enough of me talking on and on lol so for the update. my skin still looks great, acne marks are fading, skins smoothing, not as much flaking. still burning but its not as bad as before! my confidence is just rising and i feel great. my health is good, ive been eating right, drinking plenty of water and tea had a can of pop this month but i felt like treating myself for my birthday haha. so the before photos are very personal and quite embarrassing so please dont write any rude comments im trying to show my progress and that better skin is possible with a few changes . leave some questions and comments please :) and thanks to everyone whose been reading my blog :$ you guys are awesome! hope i can touch one person! and if i do leave a comment or a message in my inbox <3

of course i do :$ im an original fan! <3 and i used to think i had scars but turned out just to be acne marks thank God! so the RAM is really helping fade those away. when my skin is completely smooth im planning to try lemon just to help the acne marks fade faster :) mainly cause i am going into grade 11 so im trying to get nice skin before the start of school, which is why i started the RAM just as school ended :)

there's nothing better than looking awesome before the new school year starts :>

HAHA LEMONS! holycrap I honestly think it's working for me. just make sure your acne has really decided to stop popping up as often. lemon juice hasn't shown any sort of treatment for my acne [my birth control takes care of that] so yeah D:!

hmm it's hard to give you an exact time to be honest.

I was really hesitant for awhile but I knew it was okay when my main focus suddenly was more of "oh if only my scars weren't there my skin would be clear." rather than "argggg active breakouts everywhereee"

if you notice your scars more than your acne then I'd say give lemons a shot :> if not then there's no rush! just be glad that your skin has shown so much progress XD!
