Let me start off by telling you a little bit about me. I'm 15 and I've had acne since I was 10. It has gotten really bad in the past year and a half. I've been trying a bunch of different "cures" trying to find something that works for me. I have tried OTC products, prescription products, and some all natural stuff. I can't find anything that works for me. I have a bunch of scarring and quite a bit of active breakouts. Here are my before pictures:
Yeah... its gotten bad. Like so bad that I won't even spend the night with friends because I don't want to be seen without makeup. So I was pretty determined to end this. After countless hours researching I came up with a new regimen that I will be trying and praying that it works. I found out that the reactions I was having to BP were not normal and that my skin is sensitive to it so I decided to try the more natural route. Here is my new regimen that I will be trying as soon as I receive the rest of the products in the mail.
Wash with Herbalsim cleanser from Lush UK. Spray on tea tree toner from Lush UK. Put on layer of grease lighting from Lush UK. Apply two drops of argan oil and one drop of lavender oil to face. If I'm going out that day apply makeup if not let my face breathe (I'm homeschooled because of bullying so I don't go out everyday). While doing all of this do oil pulling with coconut oil.
Wash with Dark Angels cleanser from Lush UK. Spray on Tea Tree Toner. Put on a layer of Grease Lighting. Moisturize with a mixture of coconut oil, vitamin e oil, and lavender oil.
I know some people have problems with coconut oil and vitamin e oil breaking them out so I'm praying that I wont have that problem. I just received all of the oils in the mail so now I'm just waiting on my Lush order which should get here by the end of the week. I'll try to post nightly about my progress and post new picture weekly. I'll also be using the coconut and argan oil for my hair so I may post some about that too. While I was reading about coconut oil I read about the benefits of ingesting it so I will be eating a tablespoon or 2 of coconut oil a day also. I'm going to go ahead a start using the oils with my african black soap until my Lush order is delivered. Lets all hope this actually works!
