Day 150

It's that time a month again and now that the cyst I had for a month on my chin is gone, I woke up with a small papule on my right cheek. I shouldn't complain. It is just one and concealer covers it pretty well. Still, I am so jealous of the girls in my dorm who get out of the shower and have perfect complexions. I feel like I will always struggle with acne. Maybe not as bad as it was before, but I'll always get a blemish every now and again. I will probably always need to be on a prescription. I sincerely hope my derm doesn't take me off my medication. I really do wish I had gotten acne when I was a teenager, when I could grow out of it. Adult acne sucks! We can't grow out of it. We can control it to some extent but I know I personally will never be the way that I was as a teenager, as in never had a zit. And it's true, I didn't know what acne was until I turned 19. My skin sure made up for lost time. I wish I could forget those days where I thoughtlessly slept with my makeup on, never moisturized or cleansed. I didn't even own any facial cleansers, toners, or lotions. My skin was just clear all the time. I wish I hadn't taken it for granted.

sleeping with make-up on, never cleansing? Do you think it is possible that your acne was caused by cosmetics/dirt -oil?

That was a looong time ago. Last time I slept with makeup on was about 4 years ago. I wish it was as simple as that because then I wouldn't have acne anymore since I would NEVER sleep with makeup on now.

I know what you mean. I am 25. I missed out on a normal college experience bc my acne took over my life. I feel many girls take their skin for granted. They hope out of the shower and they are done. I can't do that. I have a whole routine morning and night. Ughhhh and so much money I spent and still spend on acne treatments.
