1St Entry



So this is my first post and I really just feel like ranting. I first got acne when I was in the 7th grade, around the time when I first got my period. My acne stayed pretty bad until the beginning of my freshman year when I lost a bunch of weight and my period stopped. All throughout freshman year i had PERFECT skin. Thats when I realized my acne was directly related to what I eat and my hormones. it sounds obvious but eventually i realized my weight was not healthy so I packed some heathy pounds. I am now a junior and my period has been back for about a year now and i actually have some curves :) sadly with the period my acne came back, and stronger than ever. I recently went on birth control to try and control my hormones, but so far no luck. I'm not sure if i should switch pills... anyways, I've tried everything and i am completely exhausted fighting acne constantly. all my friends have prefect skin and eat like crap and don't wash their face regularly. they don't understand how lucky they are. i get so angry whenever they complain about one tiny little pimple when I'm over here with 10X the acne they do.

In the long run, your healthier habits will pay off. I am 32 and still struggling with acne, now its a mixture of regular and cystic. Keep on keeping on. Have you been to a derm for topicals. Hormonal means can take up to 6 months to BEGIN to work so patience is in order. In the mean time, keep doing what you're doing and recognize that you are not your acne.
