Getting Better?



Well I can't say my acne is completely gone. It isn't. But it has calmed down significantly. The only area with active pimples is around my jawline. Once I get back on a contraceptive though, I'm hoping that will be the end of it. I still have scars and it doesn't help that my skin is completely dried out. I'm afraid to moisturize too much because I don't want to break out again. It seems like whenever I get dry skin I stop breaking out. It's like the better of two evils.

I switched to a different makeup brand that won't clog my pores and I've noticed that I do not have anymore of those annoying small bumps under the skin. So basically I am hopeful that there is a light at the end of this tunnel. Lord knows, I think I deserve it. Acne really did screw up my life the last two years. Even if it does get better, I'll still carry scars on my heart from all the mean things people said to me. But hopefully in time, I will get over it and be able to look people in the eyes again.


I used Bare Minerals when it first came out for about 6 months and loved it. I can't remember why I stopped using it. Looking back now, I think during that time period my skin looked pretty awesome. Hmmm... something to think about for sure. Thanks girlie!
