The Beginning



Alright folks. Here it goes. The only thing that has ever worked for my acne is BP, but I can't use it very often because my skin is so sensitive. I mean if I so much as touch my face it turns red. So I've been reading a lot of posts on AcneEinstein, which is natural, science based treatments for acne, and I read one post that shows green tea is just as effective as BP for acne without all the side effects. I also read that antioxidants are very good for acne, especially Niacinamide and SAP (a vitamin C derivative).

So I went and I bought NeoStrata Clarifying Lotion, which has 5% SAP and 2% Niacinamide. I also bought a green tea cream, Camellia Care, that has EGCg from green tea, resveratrol (another antioxidant) and HA. I am using a natural face wash from JES Organics formulated for acne, and have a natural face cream by the same company that I am going to use if my skin needs extra hydration. I am waiting on my Jane Iredale makeup, which has always worked well for me.

I am going to start using my two new creams tonight and see how it goes. I have been getting a lot of bigger, deeper pimples, I guess those are called pustules? I don't know why, I can't figure it out, but I've been wanting to switch over to natural products for a while now anyway.

I am going to try to document this journey with pictures to see if it is actually doing anything.
