so before all of you judge me and tell me "I don’t know what you’re talking about you never had acne." trust me, I’ve been there. And it sucks. It made me want to yell, scream, cry, shout and every possible negative emotion out there and eventually I came to the realization that I would have to live with it. I just wanted to give you guys hope, even if I help one person with their self-confidence I’ll be doing what I originally wanted to do with this blog. So I’ve been on retin a micro for 219 days and I’ve seen amazing results. Great skin is in reach you just have to commit and change your lifestyle. Please no hateful comments because it takes a lot of courage to post these photos and even looking at them made me somewhat emotional. My acne is in no way cured. But it has come a long way since then. My confidence is up! I dress better, eat better, sleep better and most importantly I can look at myself and smile. How many times can you say that when you look in the mirror and see a face full of acne? Now I know a lot of you are desperate for answers and my most important tip is be patient. It’s the best thing you can do. Get rid of those habits! Don’t eat crap everyday exercise and have fun! I’m not saying go vegan, I’m just saying watch what you eat, our bodies react differently to different foods and only you can figure out what those reactions are. Treat yourself once in a while, and by while I mean every two weeks or every month. I know habits like scratching and picking at your face are really hard to break but trust me you’ll be happy you did it. When/if your acne does clear up I want you to know that you don’t stop there. You need to continue with everything you’ve been doing. THIS IS A LIFESTYLE whether you like it or not you’re stuck with it. Also after your acne clears up, this DOES NOT mean your acne marks go away magically. They fade over time. It’s been 219 days and all mine haven’t left but they’re basically unnoticeable to the naked eye. I think the best part of this experience was getting that compliment. You know. The one your friend or even a random stranger gives you. "Omg your skin is so clear, are you using makeup or something?" I’m not ashamed of my acne I’m also not proud of it. It’s apart of me and I embrace it. Think looking forward and never look back. please if I helped you in any way leave a comment or send me a msg in my inbox I will get to all of them and I thank each and every one of you who has been following my blog, since the beginning or even if this is your first time seeing this! feel free to ask questions! I love you all! <3 as a last note, my skin is a bit oily because i just came home from dance, and my skin looks really red because of the lighting, its the colour of my forehead in the most recent pics!
